Stopping a Killer Before He Strikes

The tragic shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 18 other victims in Tucson, Arizona on January 8, 2011 is only the latest in a long list of unimaginable shooting rampages by troubled individuals. In the aftermath of the catastrophe, questions have emerged as to whether some intervention could have prevented the devastating loss of life and injuries that occurred on that day.

Experts John Liebert, M.D. and William J. Birnes, J.D., Ph.D. maintain that early awareness of aberrant behaviors followed by intervention can avert some of the tragedies that seem to be occurring time and time again on America's campuses and street corners. Their compelling work, Suicidal Mass Murderers: A Criminological Study of Why They Kill discusses the pathophysiology of violent offenders and provides first hand empirical and experimental data on mass homicidal/suicidal offenders. It introduces and explains the concept of apocalyptic mass murder and demonstrates how the final words of the killer in the days before the shooting can signal the end is near.

Read more about the striking similarities between Jared Loughner and the Virginia Tech shooter.
