They include being bullied at school, depression, lack of guidance or discipline and even mental illness are just to name a few. (Inside The Mind Of a Teen Killer; 2009 Nelson, Phil Chalmers).

Dennis Rader better known as the “BTK Killer” or the “BTK Strangler” terrorized the Wichita Kansas area from 1974 to 1991 by binding, torturing and killing (hence “BTK”) at least 10 victims in that period.

In 2005, well after the BTK case became an unsolved cold case with no leads whatsoever, Rader was suddenly a prime suspect. What made him became something of a suspect was because he began taunting the police, by initiating a series of communications with the media.

This is why office need to train so that mistakes like this will never happen again. Officers should also know when they received enough evidence to arrest someone for the crime the individual have committed.

Charles Kinsey was shot in his leg while lying on his back with his hands in the air, reports say when Charles asked the office why he shot him the office said he do not know
The disputes started long ago but continue to this day. The incident at Oglala was very important to show how the government officials treated Native Americans. The article says, “By June of 1975 there had been more than 60 unsolved murders of traditional Indians and AIM supporters. The FBI, charged with solving crimes on Indian reservations, took little interest in the killings. But when two FBI agents were killed near the community of Oglala on the Pine Ridge Reservation on June 26, 1975, 350 FBI agents were on the scene within three days.”
It has impacted my life in every way it can. We have all been sort of indoctrinated to believe all these kinds of stereotypes. Which is why we see on television innocent people of color being shot to death by a white officer because they felt “unsafe.” Just like the case of Michael Brown in Missouri. He was killed by the police at the age of 18.
Another angry kid shoots up a school full of kids, or was the cause of this tragedy darker than we could have imagined? “Lanza went to Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012 armed with an AR-15 rifle and other firearms. He killed 20 children and six educators” (Scinto). The nation was shook by the news of the shootings. Adam Lanza took twenty-six lives days before Christmas.
A popular story that has recently been in the news is the fatal shooting of 12-year old, African American Tamir Rice.

I think random locker searches is a good thing. Because if you bring a gun to school and plan to kill someone that is not the right thing to do. You need to tell a teacher or an adult who you trust. Things you would find is stuff like drugs, guns, alcohol, and steroids if you are a sports player. There was an accident in florida at one of our schools that a 8th grader brought a 1911 stainless steel colt 45 and massacred over 100 staff and students.
