Six Shot in Less than Two Hours in Gun-Controlled Baltimore
[BREITBART] Six people were shot in less than two hours late Friday night to early Saturday morning in heavily gun-controlled Baltimore, Maryland.

WBALTV reports that the first of the shooting incidents occurred around 11:18 p.m. Friday and the last occurred around 1:00 a.m. Saturday.

The 11:18 p.m. incident resulted in a 34-year-old being shot, and the 1:00 a.m. incident resulted in a 37-year-old man being shot.

At 11:43 p.m., three people‐a 31-year-old man, a 44-year-old woman, and a 15-year-old boy‐were all shot and left with non-life-threatening injuries.

Additionally, a 32-year-old man was treated for gunshot wounds around midnight.

On July 29, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Baltimore is on track to top 300 homicides for the fifth consecutive year.

Baltimore, like all of Maryland, has a ban on "assault weapons" and "high capacity" magazines. It also has a registration/fingerprint requirement for would-be purchasers of new handguns.

Six Wounded as Gunman Opens Fire in Democrat-Controlled Chicago
[BREITBART] A gunman opened fire in reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel...
’s East Garland Park on Sunday morning, wounding six.

CBS Chicago reports that gunman opened fire from inside "a light-colored sedan" around 2:47 a.m. The would-be victims "were standing in a large group" when six were maimed.

Five women between the ages of 27 to 38-years were maimed in the shooting. One male, age 25, was also maimed.

Exactly one week ago‐on August 4‐Breitbart News reported two separate mass public attacks in Chicago, the first of which left seven maimed and the second of which left seven maimed and one dead.

The first to two attacks occurred around 1:20 a.m. in Douglas Park. The second occurred less than three hours later in Lawndale.

Principal ousted from out-of-control high school where kids threatened staff
[NYPOST] The principal of a Brooklyn high school where out-of-control kids threatened and injured staffers has been removed, The Post has learned.

Sybil Girard, interim acting head of It Takes a Village Academy in Flatbush, will not return in September, but will start a new job as an assistant principal ‐ with lesser pay ‐ at a school nearby, the city Department of Education confirmed.

"Everyone is so relieved," said a teacher at ITAVA. "There are tears of joy, literally, among the remaining staff. A lot of good people have left because of her."

Girard is now under investigation for allegedly firing five teachers who openly wrote letters of complaints, the DOE confirmed.

Among horrific incidents at the school, which reeked of pot, one teacher found a note warning, "I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE BITCH!" with her home address obtained by a kid who gained access to an office computer.

A school safety agent trying to break up a fight fell and broke his arm. A pregnant paraprofessional who asked a student not to shove her was told by the girl: ’I will f‐k you up."

Besides safety concerns, teachers said Girard let the once highly regarded school slide academically.

The school’s robotics team fell by the wayside. Teachers who left were not replaced. Not a single student graduated this year with an advanced Regents diploma, because the required courses in math, science and Spanish were dropped.

In June, the frustrated faculty took a vote of no-confidence in Girard, with 48 of 63 staffers approving it.

Girard, who was never made permanent because of ongoing probes, reverted back to assistant principal, her salary dropping from $164,196 to $138,518. She will join the Academy for College Preparation and Career Exploration, officials said.

Angelo Marra, who was assigned to supervise Girard, will serve as acting principal ‐ a move that pleased the staff, a teacher said.

Teachers praised Executive Superintendent Barbara Freeman for finally removing Girard after letters to Brooklyn South high school superintendent Michael Prayor, begging for intervention, went nowhere.

DOE front man Will Mantell said, "We thank Sybil Girard for her service at It Takes A Village Academy, and the Superintendent and Acting Principal Angelo Marra will ensure a smooth transition and strong start to the school year. We’ll work closely with the community as we identify a new permanent leader of the school."

Hong Kong police fire tear gas during cat-and-mouse encounters
[DAWN] Hong Kong police fired volleys of tear gas to disperse anti-government protesters on Saturday ‐ sending tourists fleeing weeping in Kowloon ‐ only for demonstrators to regroup and gather elsewhere during another tense, hot and restive weekend.

Weeks of increasingly violent protests have plunged Hong Kong into its biggest political crisis for decades, posing a serious challenge to the central government in Beijing.

On Saturday activists rallied across the city, with thousands thronging the airport arrivals hall for a second day, while elsewhere police displayed a new willingness to quickly and forcibly clear them from the streets.

That became a cat-and-mouse chase with demonstrators late into the summer night.

Tear gas was used with little warning not long after several hundred activists who had marched through Tai Po in the north of the territory had barricaded an intersection in the Tai Wai neighbourhood.

They dispersed, as noxious smoke also filled the train station there, bringing train passengers to tears.

Then demonstrators popped up again in Kowloon, a large urban district on the mainland side of Hong Kong’s harbour, only for police to fire another volley of gas from Tsim Sha Tsui cop shoppe, sending nearby tourists running with welling tears.

Luxury shops were caught up in the stand-off, with some shoppers even taking pictures of riot police.

Youth on ventilator after ‘torture by doctor’s relatives’
[DAWN] LAHORE: A young attendant of a patient had to be put on ventilator on Saturday after he was severely tortured allegedly by the relatives of a lady doctor at the emergency ward of the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital here.

Identified as Mohammad Ali (20) of Samanabad, the young man had protested delay in treatment of his seriously-ill grandmother which led to an argument between him and the duty doctor witnesses told the media.

They said as the young man entered into a heated argument with the lady doctor, she called some of her relatives.

They said some eight to ten people reached the hospital’s emergency unit, attacked the young man in the presence of security guards as well as coppers.

The attackers first beat him up with iron rods in the ward and then dragged him to a room where they subjected him to brutal torture despite requests of victim’s female relatives to spare him, the witnesses said.

They said that alarmed by the situation, an attendant of another patient called the police for help.

The attackers, however, expeditiously departed at a goodly pace before the police arrived, leaving the seriously injured victim in a pool of blood.

Ali, who according to doctors, suffered serious head injuries, was later shifted to the surgical emergency of the hospital where the doctors during initial treatment referred him to the intensive care unit (ICU).

Quoting duty doctors, the relatives of the victim told the media that his condition was worsening due to his head injuries and trauma.

Science & Technology
Belmont Club: Mass Killings vs. Mass Shootings
Key bits. Interesting graphs at the link.
[PJMedia] What the current debate really seems to be about is whether rapid-fire guns increase the frequency of a special kind of crime called mass shootings. However, this is a somewhat artificial category. Mass shootings are a subset of the larger phenomenon of mass killings, sometimes referred to as rampage killings. "A rampage involves the (attempted) killing of multiple persons at least partly in public space by a single physically present perpetrator using (potentially) deadly weapons in a single event without any cooling-off period."

It is one killer, one place, one time, many victims in a setting outside of war. The data collected on this type of even notes the type of weapon used, which is not always a firearm. It is mass killings that one would want to reduce, not just mass shootings.

What differentiates rampage killings from regular homicide is they were (and still are) by comparison extremely rare. Wikipedia lists only 1,850 incidents worldwide in recorded history, which is very small compared to the number of ordinary homicides. While the record probably leaves out many incidents it should be by order of magnitude correct at least from the 1800s. (I converted the incidents into a queryable database, excluding familicides, home intruders and the "other" category to obtain the following charts in a process to be described next post).

Rampage killings really start taking off after the mid-1960s. Perhaps the most surprising thing is how much of that spike comes from religious-ethnic and school shootings (which are counted separately from geographical divisions).

If general rampage killings are purely a function of weapons availability they should be reflected across the jurisdiction of those geographical areas. The fact that they spike in certain categories (religious-ethnic and schools) suggests it is higher than average in certain places due in part to the killer's efforts to act out some pathological or political message related to these settings.

Because rampage killers are rare, they may be quite different from the ordinary murderer. If the mass killer decides to commit mayhem, first the weapon selection is driven by the plan. Availability is one, but only one of the factors. The rampage data reflect the choice. While bladed weapons are less deadly than firearms, the really devastating attacks are carried out using vehicles or arson. Wikipedia has a category for these called other.

#1  Because Wretchard is looking at this in a non-emotional fashion the analysis is utterly irrelevant to the leftist gun-banners' exclusively emotional approach to the subject.
Posted by: M. Murcek || 08/12/2019 7:55 Comments || Top||

#2  Rampage killers are most comparable to what are called 'lone wolves', self-radicalized extremists with a delusion of leaving a legacy. They are terribly sick people, and can be tagged at an early age and if not cured then... adjusted. At least observed closely.

In any case, the manifestation is never sudden, like in "Falling Down". There are always markers of psychopathy or deep misanthropy. It may be later glossed over by investigators and agencies, but the truth is, there's always a list of misdemeanors or red flags in their trajectory somewhere. They may remain an inevitable by-product of our socio-political evolution as long as we don't find a legal way to surgically alter their behavior*.

But the immediate carers/guardians. The police. The prosecutors, judges, DAs. Why do they slip up, pass-by, remain apathetic to these markers ? In every case we've seen, either the police gave the perp 'a once-over' at some time, or he/they had a record of other infractions. In the El-Paso case the mother herself reported her son before he did it. There should be an accounting for this incompetence.

It has been seen that by regulating the amount of AVP (plasma arginine vasopressin) reaching the amygdala, violent impulses and the tendency to fly into them can be decreased (or increased for some perverse, ungodly reason) and the brain itself trained on a neurochemical level to counter the extra AVP with receptor antagonists or inhibitors. Although this has been tried only with primates and maybe exclusive residents of the Xinjiang country club, the research is promising.

#3  Also it might pay to look into the increase in the use of the stronger "pot" that started to become available in the 1960's . The stronger the pot is made. the more increases in correlation to brain damage , lung cancer, and other health problems. While correlation is not equal to causation there should be enough information to "prove" it one way or another.

FBI investigating Epstein death in Manhattan jail
[The Hill] The FBI signaled it is investigating the death of disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein after he was discovered dead in his Manhattan jail cell due to an "apparent suicide."

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons said in a news release Saturday that the FBI would investigate the apparent suicide.

Authorities said Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell early Saturday morning. He was transported to a hospital for treatment and he was pronounced dead there, officials said.

Several lawmakers have called for answers in Epstein's death after he was reportedly put on suicide watch in late July following a possible suicide attempt, when he was discovered unconscious in his cell with marks around his neck.

The Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC), where Epstein was being held, did not immediately return The Hill's request Saturday for clarification about Epstein's suicide watch.

#20  BTW, according to Epstein's biography at Wikipedia, Epstein started working after the summer of 1974 as a physics and mathematics teacher at the Dalton School in the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

The headmaster until June of that year was Donald Barr -- father of AG William Barr, and possibly the man who hired Epstein for that position.
