read the post you quoted again, specifically the last sentence, and just shut up...
i wasnt even gonna explain why that post didnt belong here. whether intentional or not, that post came straight out of a right wing-nuts playbook. chicago gun violence brought up when discussing mass murder? nah. no explanation needed. u knew what that was g.
I'm trying hard not to become numb to this. But when you know that no real change is coming because the bottom line is America is a business and weapons are their #1 commodity.....
America’s #1 product are firearms?
I was kinda talking out my *** by exaggerating but I'm sure you could've guessed that as well.
It's so ironic that people are obsessed with this constitutional right yet it's contributing to so much murder.
i dont think this is a mass shooting technically. says it was a narcotics bust that turned into a shootout
update says 6 officers shot, none life threatening.. shooter is still shootin.
There are officers and prisoners barricaded in the home. They’re saying there’s a loose shooter on one of the floors who is still shooting through walls and floors
Just heard the shooting in Philadelphia.
It’s being reported that the shooter has surrendered and is in custody.
5 people broke into a store to rob it after hours and the owner shot them.
That was counted as a mass shooting and so will this.
Anytime more than 2 people get shot it's a mass shooting no matter the context.
how you surrender after all that? son ran outta ammo to off himself?
The characterization of a mass shooting depends upon its definition, these definitions vary:
Under U.S. federal law, the Attorney General–on a request from a state–may assist in investigating “mass killings,” rather than mass shootings. The term was originally defined as the murder of four or more people with no cooling-off period but redefined by Congress in 2013 as being murder of three or more people.
In “Behind the Bloodshed”, a report by USA Today, a mass killing is defined as: any incident in which four or more were killed, including familial killings.
A crowdsourced data site cited by CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Economist, the BBC, etc., Mass Shooting Tracker, defines a mass shooting as any incident in which five or more people are shot, whether injured or killed.
According to the Investigative Assistance for Violent Crimes Act of 2012, signed into law in January 2013, a mass killing is defined as a killing with at least three deaths, excluding the perpetrator.[1
An unofficial definition of a mass shooting is an event involving the shooting (not necessarily resulting in death) of five or more people (sometimes four) with no cooling-off period.
In Australia, a 2006 paper defined a mass shooting as “one in which ⩾5 [Five or more] firearm‐related homicides are committed by one or two perpetrators in proximate events in a civilian setting, not counting any perpetrators.” Arguably this was done to not have to label the Monash University shooting as such.
Crime violence research group Gun Violence Archive, whose research is used by all major American media outlets, defines mass shooting as “FOUR or more shot and/or killed in a single event [incident], at the same general time and location, not including the shooter,” differentiating between mass shooting and mass murder [killing] and not counting shooters as victims.
The lack of a single definition can lead to alarmism in the news media, with some reports conflating categories of different crimes.
An act of mass shooting is typically defined as terrorist when it “appears to have been intended” to intimidate or to coerce people; a mass shooting is not, in itself, an act of terrorism. A U.S. Congressional Research Service report explicitly excluded from its definition of public mass shootings those in which the violence is a means to an end, for example where the gunmen “pursue criminal profit or kill in the name of terrorist ideologies.”[2
Oh so he’s white?
So if I get mad at Pookie and Ray Ray down the street and go shoot at them, then thats consider a mass shooting?
Thats not a mass shooting.
We are talking in here going after innocent people for the sake of a statement aka TERRORIST attacks.
Its as dumb as that other dude trying to bring up people getting shot in Chicago like @Raji Lowenthal
What’s the point of this thread? Seriously
Information sharing, venting frustrations, etc.
To talk about Mass Terrorist Shootings in America and find out ways to help stop them, unfortunately people want to deflect into other areas where it wasnt necessary
Shut up bro. The news thought it was as well. ETA reading above a mass shooting is considered to be 4 or more people shot in a single incident. The 2 mentioned in Chicago each had more than 5.
This thread deals with a different type of shooting though. Can't you see the difference between what happened in El Paso and what happened in Philly/Chicago?
The mass shootings this thread was created for the ones perpetrated by someone who had specific intent after clear premeditation and random victims.
