ok but being interested in serial killers/mass shooters is cool and stuff like same here do that but fucking telling how you wish they would rape you/kill you/blow up the school/calling them daddy or anything similar is so uncomfortable and ugly please just stop stop stop. studying about their mind is alright, feeling bad for them because you know a thing or two about their life is also alright, but please know the limits.
Audio recordings of various school or university shooters. Note: Elliot Rodger isn’t necessarily a school/university shooter, as his attack was only on the campus, and three of his victims were stabbed to death, not shot. Still fits into the theme, in my opinion.
In chronological order: Kip Kinkel (1998) - Dylan Klebold (†1999) - Eric Harris (†1999) - Seung-hui Cho (†2007) - Pekka-Eric Auvinen (†2007) - TJ Lane (2012) - Adam Lanza (†2012) - Elliot Rodger (†2014) - Dylann Roof (2015)
Sandy Hook Promise is a nonprofit organisation developed by the family members of victims and survivors of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children aged between six and seven-years-old. He also killed six staff members, his mother, and then himself.
This PSA titled “Evan” was released by Sandy Hook Promise. It cleverly shows how very easy it is to miss the warning signs that somebody could be planning a mass shooting. It promotes the Sandy Hook Promise “Know the Signs” programmes which they run free of charge. They’re intended to teach parents and teachers how to identify if somebody needs help. Thank you to @cryptid-wendigo to showing me this video.
The congressional shooting that happened yesterday in Alexandria was horrible. No one should disagree with that.
But a year ago this month, nearly 50 people were killed at the Pulse night club in Orlando, Florida.
Two years ago, nine people were killed at the
Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.
Five years ago, 20 children and six adults were killed during the Sandy Hook shooting.
These are only the shootings I can think of off the top of my head. Just this year alone, and June hasn’t even ended yet, there have been 150+ shootings.
But it took an attack on old white men for the media to bring gun control back into the public mindset. It took this attack for Paul Ryan to proclaim, “An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.”
It would’ve been nice if this anger from GOP politicians had been around for all the innocent people who have died from shootings. No one has died yet from yesterday’s shooting, and hopefully, Steve Scalise recovers soon.
But could this please be the breaking point for the GOP? This country needs gun control. If our politicians had done something before now, perhaps they wouldn’t have become victims.
“For the past four years, Finland-based artist Harri Pälviranta has been crafting portraits based on a grim kind of subject matter – school shootings. The series, "News Portraits,” depicts the perpetrators of the 10 most fatal school shootings since 1999, crafting the eerie faces of violent offenders from old news clippings dating back to the tragic crimes. From the United States to Finland, Brazil and Germany, the portraits quite literally put a face to violence in schools across the globe.“
