Mass Killings: 2019

The other day I came across an article at the Daily Mail, "Mass killings hit new high: 210 people were killed in 41 attacks including 33 mass shootings in the US during 2019." In this case, a "mass killing" is being defined as 4 or more people, other than the perpetrator, being killed in a single incident. At least the authors were honest enough to report that:
     The majority of the killings involved people who knew each other - family disputes, drug or gang violence or people with beefs that directed their anger at co-workers or relatives.

    In many cases, what set off the perpetrator remains a mystery.
Of course, this pales in regard to what we see in other countries. I just did a quick search using Google for bombings in 2019 and came up with this:
Remember, this is just bombings and is no where inclusive of all such attacks. Not surprisingly, all but one of the bombings was committed by Muslims, and primarily against other Muslims.

  1. A quick study of the demographics of the actual killers in the "mass shootings" would never make the news.

    1. Yup. It might wake people up to the fact that the problem is not guns.
