Some of my work in the first responder world has landed me on a project building an application in the unfortunately ever-growing field of active shooter/threat research, due to the increasing number of events in the last 15 years.
A few articles recently have been interesting reads, so I figured they’d be worth a share:
- The Myth of the ‘Autistic Shooter’
- Thresholds of Violence - How school shootings catch on" by Malcolm Gladwell
- Inside the Race to Stop the Next Mass Shooter
If you’re in for a longer read, the FBI put together a more comprehensive study of active shooters between 2000 and 2013.
Hopefully all these studies and attention will help us find a path toward reducing and eventually eliminating these terrible incidents.
