Our experts say that some mass shootings can be averted through threat assessments, the community and officials working together to prevent them.
The family and friends of a mass shooter, as well as school officials, see potential signs and yet may ignore them. The justifications: I don’t believe “he” would do this, I can’t be right, it’s nothing, I’m not a snitch, I’m afraid to report this.
Yet when there are signs, which our experts have outlined, of increasing anger, resentments, frustrations, coupled with actions such as buying a gun, threats towards others, etc., saying something to officials who can investigate further can prevent loss of lives.
Shooters don’t just snap – the killings are premeditated, the signs are there, and while law officials and the FBI are doing a lot to work with schools and businesses, individuals need to do their part as well.
If you SEE Something, our experts say, SAY Something.
Help save lives.
