Question description

Mass Shootings

As we learn in the readings, media reports of school crime tend to create misconceptions of a danger that is actually quite small for the overwhelming majority of school users. In fact, given the number of students, teachers, and other personnel in schools on any given day, it is quite astounding how few violent episodes there are. To track violence in schools, read the US Department of Justice and US Department of Education report, Indicators of School Crime and Safety: 2011 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. After reading the report, please address each of the following:

  • What statistic in the report surprised you about school crime and safety? Please refer to a specific statistic found on the site and cite it properly. Tell us why this statistic surprised you, confirmed your belief, etc.
  • In 81% of violent, targeted school attacks, at least one person knew someone was conceiving of or planning an attack. In most cases no one came forward with this information. Why might someone hesitate to come forward?
  • What are some significant differences between school shootings and mass shootings in the general population (for example, the Colorado movie theatre shooting or the Orlando nightclub shooting)?
  • Discuss the challenges inherent in preventing mass shootings in schools, the workplace, and the general public. Are there any proven strategies to help control this type of violence?
  • What ideological differences might interfere with making meaningful criminal justice reform to prevent mass shootings?
  • What are some other barriers to criminal justice reform?

Your initial post should be at least 350 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and at least one other scholarly resource. Please properly cite in the body of your work and at the end of your work your required references. APA format please.

specific statistic found on the site and cite it properly. Tell us why this statistic surprised
you, confirmed your belief, etc.
From the report, the issue of teachers being threatened with injury or physically attacked
by student surprised me the most about school crime and safety. It is devastating to learn that
students would go to the length of threatening their teachers when they are the ones who fight to
protect the same students from danger. From the report, a greater percentage of teachers have
reported being threatened with an injury with their own ...
