Study: Media Fascination With Mass Shooters is Creating More Mass Shooters

Providing killers with ghastly fame they crave is incentivizing future massacres.

Published

An exhaustive study which collected data from every mass shooting in America since 1966 found that the news media’s fascination with mass shooters is creating more mass shooters.

In the aftermath of tragic events like this past weekend’s two massacres, some commentators have called for the killers to be starved of the ghastly fame they crave and for the media not to reveal their names or identities.

The validity of that position has been bolstered by new research conducted by Jillian Peters and James Densley which was funded by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Tasked with preventing more mass shootings, the researchers discovered “four commonalities among the perpetrators of nearly all the mass shootings we studied.”

One of the those patterns is that mass shooters are partly inspired by studying the actions of previous mass shooters. In other words, the media’s obsession with reporting every facet of every mass shooting is enabling future mass shooters.

“In the age of 24-hour rolling news and social media, there are scripts to follow that promise notoriety in death. Societal fear and fascination with mass shootings partly drives the motivation to commit them,” write Peters and Densley.

This is why mass shootings tend to come in clusters, because as the researchers note, “They are socially contagious. Perpetrators study other perpetrators and model their acts after previous shootings.”

Peters and Densley advise that one potential solution to preventing future mass shootings is not to share the details of manifestos left behind by the perpetrators.

This is likely to be a difficult task for the media since they poured over the El Paso’s shooter’s manifesto in an effort to blame his actions on President Trump despite the shooter himself asserting he was not radicalized by Trump.

“Another step is to try to make it more difficult for potential perpetrators to find validation for their planned actions,” states the study. “Media campaigns like #nonotoriety are helping starve perpetrators of the oxygen of publicity, and technology companies are increasingly being held accountable for facilitating mass violence.”

Dr. Marc Siegel “More Suspicious Than Ever” Epstein Was Murdered

“This situation smells.”

Published

on

Dr. Marc Siegel says that in the aftermath of Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy results being revealed, he is “more suspicious than ever” that the sex trafficker was murdered.

“The hyoid bone in the neck being fractured and other fractures in the neck, make it more likely, and again, this is a percentage call, more likely that it was a homicide than a suicide,” Siegel told Fox News.

Siegel went on to say, “I am now more suspicious than ever that this could be a homicide.”

The doctor made the point that if someone had been attacked, there would be signs of such an attack on the body and that this information remains unknown.

“If someone holds you down and strangles you, you see evidence on the body – bruises….that question will be answered.”

Siegel also expressed his amazement that Epstein would be taken off suicide watch given the fact that he supposedly attempted suicide just weeks before and was placed in an unobserved room where there were bed sheets that could be used for a hanging.

“This situation smells,” he concluded.

As the Washington Post reported earlier, Epstein’s injuries “are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation” according to experts.

Eric Garner, the New Yorker who died from strangulation after a cop used a chokehold against him, also had a broken hyoid bone just like Jeffrey Epstein.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Injuries More Common in Victims of Strangulation Than Hanging

Officials refuse to comment on autopsy results.

Published

on

Jeffrey Epstein’s injuries that led to his death are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation than by hanging, autopsy results have revealed.

The autopsy found that Epstein sustained numerous breaks in his neck bones.

“Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple,” reports the Washington Post. “Such breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said.”

Officials have refused to comment on the new information from Epstein’s autopsy.

As we previously reported, shrieking and shouting was heard from Jeffrey Epstein’’s cell on the morning he died, while one of Epstein’s guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center was not a regular corrections officer.

Epstein is said to have hanged himself using bedsheets, although a former inmate at the same facility this would have been impossible because they’re not much stronger than paper.

Video: Residents Harass, Throw Objects at Philly Police Leaving Scene of Shootout

One woman pushes a cop and calls him a “bitch ass ni**a.”

Published

After a wild standoff and shootout that left six cops wounded in Philadelphia, residents pelted objects and shouted obscenities at some of the officers involved.

Video footage shows officers leaving the scene of the shootout, only to be physically confronted, laughed at and verbally abused by onlookers.

Bear in mind that the suspect, 36-year-old Maurice Hill, had a lengthy history of gun convictions, was being served a warrant related to a drug offense and could easily have killed some of the cops involved.

The officers were heckled and laughed at as they walked through the crowd, with one woman pushing a cop and calling him a “bitch ass ni**a.”

Some residents even tried to physically confront and scuffle with the officers.

According to Philadelphia’s KYW-TV reporter Alexandria Hoff, the harassment also took place during exchange of gunfire with the suspect.

“I mentioned this at 10 and since I was harassed during that live shot, I’ll mention it here, too,” Hoff said on Twitter. “A major moment of disappointment this evening was watching a crowd of people taunt police officers, laughing and yelling at them in the midst of the gunfire.”

After more than five hours of gunfire, a SWAT team managed to get two officers and three hostages out of the building which Hill was holed up safely.
