Dec 19 - Mass k!llings Occur Every 2 Weeks in US
 

 
Mass k!llers target Americans once every two weeks on average, in attacks that range from robberies to horrific public shooting sprees like the massacre Friday of 27 people in Newtown, Conn., a USA TODAY examination found.

Using news accounts and FBI records from 2006 through 2010, the most recent years for which complete records were available, USA TODAY identified 156 murders that met the FBI definitions of mass k!llings, where four or more people were k!lled.

All told, the attacks k!lled 774 people, including at least 161 young children.

The review offers perhaps the most current, complete picture yet of a crime that is both frighteningly common and not widely understood.

"Everybody is surprised when they hear it's dozens a year," said Northeastern University criminologist James Alan Fox, who has studied mass murders. "People don't understand them. When they think of mass murders, they only think it's random."

USA TODAY's examination did not include murders during the past two years, both of which were marked by a series of high-profile public shootings, including a rampage this year at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater that left 12 dead and 57 injured, and an attack on a Sikh temple in Wisconsin that k!lled six.

Without more complete records, it is impossible to know whether mass k!llings increased over those years — though they have become less common since the mid-1990s, according to Grant Duwe, director of research at the Minnesota Department of Corrections, who has studied mass murders.

The k!llings between 2006 and 2010, however, offer a portrait of mass murder that in many ways belies the stereotype of a lone gunman targeting strangers:

Lone gunmen, such as the one who terrorized Sandy Hook Elementary School last week, account for less than half of the nation's mass k!llers. About a quarter of mass murders involve two or more k!llers.

A third of mass k!llings didn't involve guns at all. In 15 incidents, the victims died in a fire. In 20 others, the k!ller used a knife or a blunt object. When guns were involved, k!llers were far more likely to use handguns than any other type of weapon.

Children are frequently victims. At least 161 who died in mass k!llings -- roughly one in five -- were 12 and younger.

Mass murderers tend to be older than other k!llers, with an average age of nearly 32 years old. Like all k!llers, they are overwhelmingly men.

Friday's massacre in Newtown "has turned a whole new page" in the nation's long-running debate over guns, said Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y., a leading proponent of tighter gun laws. "Parents and grandparents, dads, gun owners are thinking that their children at any time at any place could have someone come in and do this kind of massacre."

But for all the attention they receive, mass k!llings still accounted for only a tiny fraction — about 1% — of all the Americans who were murdered over those five years. During those five years, more died from migraines and falling out of chairs than were murdered by mass k!llers, according to death records kept by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Three times as many people perished from sunstroke.

What should be more disturbing is the inner city violence in places like Chicago...
and we know these ain't white suburban kids doing the shootings...

Pick any 2 months, any 2 months this year and they have numbers equal to Sandy Hook deaths...
These aren't Mass murders...

Totally being ignored by everyone in the media...

No family support... No life values... Decaying Culture...

this culture was decadent from day one, but please enlighten me on these sacrifices and freedoms...

not pointing fingers because i don't really know you, but it's views like yours that contribute to this culture's further decay and it's also why most other countries despise americans; the absolute refusal to take off the rose colored glasses when viewing america. this country has the potential to be great, but only after we take a realistic look at our past and present. this country was founded and became a superpower through bloodshed and exploitation, that's indisputable, but we just don't want to deal with that part of our history, and we certainly don't want to accept the impact that it has on us to this very day.

STFU u idiot. This country was founded on the genocide of native americans and the BRUTAL enslavement of black people for 400 years. Only a soulless devil would try to sugarcoat that.
WTF u doing on a hip hop board anyway u fu*kin poser? I bet you really thought that corny a.ss screenname would help you fit in huh?


You truly do not understand history...
If you truly understood the founding of our country, that our founding fathers knew a country based in slavery would not last.. you can see it in our oldest documents... Ever wonder why we see "pursuit of Happiness" not property, like originally planned. Wel... So slave owners couldn't count slaves as their right to own, since they were seen as property by their owners.


NO One can forget the bad that has happened, from that you must learn or history will be repeated.. But there is no denying the fact that because of America the world is much free...

also Slavery was not started in America, but we finished it...
American's didn't invented evil...

The amount of these shootings like in Aurora or CT, are really few and far between. In fact, there is an equal if not more amount of times that something was stopped because of an armed citizen.

How come this story got no love? Because it doesn't fit the narrative that's why.



Fear is a strong emotion and when people are scared, they tend to go to the opposite extreme and not think about things logically.

And in regards to everyone sh*tting on America because of whatever reason. Again, overgeneralizing an entire peoples is nothing but ignorant. More brutal genocide has happened in every continent on this earth. Yes it's a dark history, but no more so than the Germans, the Tutsis, the Shiites, the Bosnians, the Romans, etc, etc. That holier than thou, condemn an entire country bullsh*t is shallow minded at best.

How?

How is America responsible for 'perfecting it', over some terrorist group?
or some dictator?
