Serial killers have been a sociological study for years upon years, trying to find out the psychological and biological aspects behind their outrageous, murderous behavior. When looking into serial killers, the question often occurs as to why these people perform numerous killings of people that they do not know. There is a psychological, biological, and sociological explanation behind it all. In these social studies, scientists break serial killers into multiple categories: they are defined as psychopathic or psychotic, stable or transient, and disorganized or organized. The most important thing to remember about serial killers is that the environment around them is what triggers these behaviors.
These chapters will hopefully cause anyone who is contemplating this idea of mass murder to think twice about it. e.) I do think the author does an effective job of characterizing them as typical teenagers. Had I not seen the video before I read the book, I would assume that they were normal teenagers. I think this makes it very confusing to why they committed this awful crime.
There be fourteen women arrested?’ ‘No sir. There be thirty-nine people now-’” (Miller 1125). This quote, taken from “The Crucible” just after the trials begin, this shows how quickly things crumble under the influence of fear and paranoia and soon turn to hysteria, blaming everyone who they felt fit their suspicions.
Since 1966, there have been 150 mass shootings in the United States. Over 1,000 people have been killed, and over 150 of those people were children or teenagers. These statistics are brought up in a heartbreaking article by The Washington Post, titled “The Terrible Numbers that Grow with Each Mass Shooting,” written by By Bonnie Berkowitz, Denise Lu and Chris Alcantara. After the most recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida, debates on gun control have once again sparked up. This has happened far too many times for change not to occur.
ISIS is a dangerous group attacks nations and are formidable or bring fear to others. “(CNN) - The United Nations described a joint suicide bombing that killed 80 people in Afghanistan as a "war crime," saying those responsible for the attack on a peaceful demonstration will be held accountable. ISIS claimed responsibility for the bombing in the capital Saturday.” (Visser and Popalzai).
From the young victims in schools like sandy hook, to the countless concertgoers gunned downed in Las Vegas at the music festival, the US is no stranger to mass shootings and its devastating effects. Those are just two examples in a never ending, exhaustive list of mass shootings. Guns have been a part of our culture since our independence, but is the violation of our right to bear arms more pressing than a person ’s right to a safe life. It is an issue that all Americans ,politicians and citizens, have strong opinions on.
Throughout the years, people have visually examined mass murders and wondered at how an individual or a group of individuals could take the lives of another immensely large group of people. Society often mistake mass murders to its close cognation with serial murder and spree killers. The terminology “mass murder” was acclimated around 1980 to establish an individual or group of individuals who kill many (three and more) at once. Some types of mass murders committed by individuals are Disciple Killers, Family Annihilators, and Disgruntled Employees. However, it is not only individuals that consummate mass murder.
He says that he will say the same thing all 19 Golden Gate Bridge survivors have said “[t]he millisecond his hands left the rail it was an instant regret” ( “Jumped Off The Golden Gate Bridge” 2:20). Teenage suicide is a tragic and harmful choice some children make. The more unfortunate is that these suicides are committed over petty reasons such as social media, serious reasons such as bullying, and harmful and stupid reasons such as drugs and alcohol. When you present one with the question is
The O.J. Simpson case was another case that brought to the foreground the issue of gun ownership and the continued misuse of guns. Today, a number of high school shootings make advocacy groups question the need
These aren’t even our own people. What reason do we have to spy on another countries people let alone our own?

This has reassured me of the need of our personal freedoms and how big
In 1791 the second amendment was ratified as part of the United States (US) Constitution, A right that its framers gave to the US citizen as a fundamental protection against threats from outside or within. “The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” (Young, 2007) Since then Americans have wrapped themselves with this right, even with judicial ruling giving government the ability to limit manufacturing, sales and ownership. But with the last ten year or so the US has experienced some of the worst mass shootings in recorded history. I wish to address the contagion of mass shootings and what actions in legislation have allowed these types of tragic events to unfold.
Things we can do to stop Mass Shootings Time and time again you look at the news and see a new mass shooting and instead of addressing the issue and trying to stop future ones from happening. We just have arguments about guns and how if everyone was armed it would have been different. While the news does nothing but talk about the shooter and very little about the victims of the shooting. When a person commits a mass shooting it should be taken an act of terrorism as this is literally an act that is not only bringing terror to the citizens by it effects. Ultimately hurting and killing those around that happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
