Nearly Every Mass Shooting In The Last 20 Years Shares One Thing In Common, And It Isn’t Weapons

 

 

 

 

 

” Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and its not the weapons used.

  The overwhelming evidence suggests the single largest common factor in all of these incidents is that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.

Pickerington Teen’s Suicide Raises Concern: How Much Was Bullying To Blame?

 

Tragic: Cora Delille, 15, hanged herself on May 10 after enduring years of bullying, her friends have said

 

 

 

” Cora Delille had been bullied for years. Her friends say kids called her names and dragged her reputation through the mud at school, in the park, on social media.

  Her parents didn’t know. Neither did her teachers. For the most part, Cora kept the harassment to herself. She shared some of her pain with her closest friends. But it wasn’t until she committed suicide last week that her loved ones discovered how bad the bullying had been.

“ She mentioned here and there when kids made fun of her. She didn’t clue me in to how bad it was,” said Amy Hall, Cora’s mother.

  As in many cases of youth suicide, Cora’s death left others wondering what they might have missed and what police, the schools and those close to Cora could have done.

  Pickerington police said many factors, including bullying, were to blame for her death. In her suicide note, the 15-year-old named students who tormented her. She described the pain and anguish she felt from being bullied. But she also said she felt abandoned by her father and stepfather.”

Why Facebook Kept Up Photos Of A Marine’s Bloody Suicide

 

 

Daniel Rey Wolfe

 

 

 

” When Marine veteran Daniel Rey Wolfe signed on to Facebook on Monday night and announced he was taking his own life, documenting the process in a graphic timeline of final self-portraits, his former comrades worked quickly and purposefully to save their brother-in-arms.

  Their best efforts came too late. Wolfe had killed himself—a fact that Facebook reminded them of over the next two days, as the social-media site refused to remove the grisly series of photographs he’d taken of his suicide, despite the requests of his friends and veterans’ organizations.

  Wolfe was an amphibious assault vehicle crewman in the Marine Corps, a father, and a lifelong artist with a passion for loud music and graphic design. He also appeared to struggle with money and politics and purpose—struggles that culminated in Wolfe taking his own life with a blade in a squat outside Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Monday night.

  Wolfe’s passing is the kind of postwar tragedy that illustrates how American veterans still need more resources and counseling than they’re getting, as the wars wind down and the Department of Veteran Affairs wrestles with corruption and increased workloads.

  But his suicide also throws into relief the difficulties that social networks face in creating a one-size-fits-all policy to moderate photographs and status updates. And, critically, it reveals a macabre blind spot in Facebook’s “community standards,” behind which a suicide victim’s final moments can appear on the site indefinitely, despite the protestations of people who loved him.

” His friends and family were exposed to images they should never had to [have] seen,” Douglas Tripp, one of Wolfe’s former Marine comrades told me in an email. “Who needs to see their son, brother, cousin or friend like that? They will remove a picture of a bare ass or exposed breast with the quickness. How are those more dangerous than a young man mutilating himself before he commits suicide?” “

CIA Official Dies In Apparent Suicide

 

CIA-22

 

 

 

” A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA.

  CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va.

“ We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing additional information at this time.”

  A source close to the agency said the man who died was a middle manager and the incident occurred after the man jumped from the fifth floor a building in Fairfax County.”

” A U.S. Border Patrol agent came across two girls and a woman near the Rio Grande before dusk Wednesday, when he took them into his custody, investigators said.

  But rather than arrest the Honduran nationals suspected of an immigration violation, he broke the law himself.

  Border Patrol agent Esteban Manzanares, 32, raped the woman and slashed her wrists. He then turned to her 14-year-old daughter and sexually assaulted her, as well, and tried to break her neck. The girl passed out as a result.”

Durham DA: No Charges Against Cops In The Death Of Jesus Huerta

 

 

 

 

On Nov. 19 Jesus Huerta was killed by a ‘close range’ gunshot wound through his mouth and out the back of his head while in the back seat of a cop car, hands cuffed behind his back.  The Top Cop said it was suicide; you can read more here.

  The family has a few questions, naturally.  From nbcnews.com:

‘ The attorney for Huerta’s family, Alex Charns, acknowledged that the decision to “charge another human being with a crime is a weighty one” and said the family did not have a comment on Stanback’s decision.

  However Charns said the family does question the SBI’s investigation.

“ We do have a comment on who the SBI talked to, who they failed to talk to and who they have historically served,” Charns said. “We do know that despite an SBI promise to the Huerta family to consult with them about what they might contribute before finishing its report, the SBI did not do so.” “

Electronic Frontier Foundation Offers A Tribute To Aaron Swartz On The Anniversary Of His Tragic Death

 

Aaron Swartz

 

” One year ago, we lost Aaron Swartz, a dear friend and a leader in the fight for a free and open Internet. The shock was, and remains, a profound one. It’s a testament to the power of his commitments and ideals that both in life and in death he has inspired millions around the world, including all of us at EFF, to redouble our own efforts to advance the causes that he believed in, and to untangle the twisted and brutal computer crime laws that were used to persecute him.”

 

 

 

 

” Aaron was a passionate activist, but he also stood out as a technologist whose ambitions were always aligned towards a better, more just future. His pioneering work demonstrated a passion for harnessing technology to advance the public interest. As the Internet community confronted massive new challenges to free speech and privacy in 2013, there were many moments when we wondered quietly about what Aaron would have said and done.”

TEEN FACING SEX OFFENDER PROSECUTION FOR STREAKING PRANK KILLS HIMSELF

 

 

 

 

 

” A week after he was arrested for running naked across the Sparkman High School football field during a September 27 game in a streaking gag, and just one day after school officials threatened criminal charges against him that could have resulted in an adult prosecution and conviction requiring lifelong registration as a sex offender, 15-year-old Christian Adamek from Huntsville, Alabama, hanged himself. He died from his injuries two days later.

Christian reportedly was expelled from school over the incident, but school officials were pressing for a hearing in the Madison County court system to determine if formal criminal charges would be filed.

Approximately 250,000 youth under age 18 are prosecuted, sentenced, and incarcerated in the adult criminal justice system each year and nearly 100,000 youth are placed in adult jails and prisons annually in America.”

Family Of Girl, 17, Who Killed Herself After Images Of Her Being ‘Gang Raped’ Were Posted Online By Her Attackers Speak Out About Their Grief

 

'Victim': She was labelled a 'slut' after she was allegedly gang raped by four teenagers in 2010

 

” The family of a 17-year-old girl who hanged herself after she was allegedly gang raped and bullied for being a ‘slut’ have spoken out about their grief and their determination to fight for justice.

Rehtaeh Parsons was found hanged in the bathroom of her Dartmouth, Nova Scotia home on April 4 – after nearly a year-and-a-half of torment – and her parents switched off her life support days later.

‘When Rehtaeh was born, I promised her the world,’ her mother Leah told People magazine, as she grasped a picture of her oldest child. ‘Now my beautiful girl is gone.’

She was allegedly attacked at the home of two brothers in Cole Harbour on November 12, 2011, when she was just 15.”

Demand An Independent Inquiry Into The Police Investigation

    Some months back we posted on a girl in Nova Scotia who was raped , bullied and harassed to the point of taking her own life . The incident in question took place nearly a year and a half ago and still no justice , nor peace for Rehtaeh or her family . You can read our posts here and here and you can sign a petition demanding an investigation into why nothing has been done even while the rape was filmed and witnessed by numerous students .

” I am horrified at what happened to Rehtaeh. She was a beautiful, caring person. She was a amazing artist. She loved animals.

While I haven’t seen her in a few years, I’m friends with her family and I can’t believe how our community and the authorities failed to protect her.

Seventeen months ago, she was raped. The rape was photographed and the photos were shared around her Nova Scotia community. Rehtaeh was destroyed by this. Any 15 year old would be. She was called a slut. She was bullied. She faced depression. And this week she took her own life.

After Rehtaeh’s rape, the RCMP investigated for a year but said there was not enough evidence to lay charges.”

   Unfortunately the below update is undated and thus don’t know if this is a new investigation or one that has already come and gone . Regardless , it will do the reader no harm to add the name to the above-linked petition . Please do so , so that there might be some measure of justice for a teen who lost her life to sexist pigs .

**UPDATE** Rehtaeh will finally have justice. Today I received a call from the Premier’s office saying they will be launching an “independent review of the actions of police and the Public Prosecution Service in the Rehtaeh Parson’s case.” They have yet to announce exactly who will review the case. Until the reviewers are announced and we know they are truly independent I will be leaving the petition page open for more people to sign. Holding authorities accountable is how we make sure tragedies like this don’t happen again, so thank you everyone!”

   Editor’s Note : A concerned reader brought this story back to our attention and we are more than happy to bring it to yours .

 

Update : below is a comment we received from “Concerned” that provides links to both Rehtaeh’s mother’s and father’s web pages . Comment is reposted with the express permission of the commenter and we were touched by their concern and hope that you are too .

 

 

” Concerned Jul 1, 4:22 pm

Thank you very much for bringing this to attention, again….

As mentioned, I am concerned this has been “dragged on” so to speak, so the family and concerned persons “just get worn out”…People get exhausted.

I have read the Father’s Blog
http://glencanning.com/
and
The Mother’s Facebook
https://www.facebook.com/angelrehtaehofficial

and many news articles. It seems as if the school “investigation” (to my mind) was cursory and head patting.

I have found nothing to indicate any serious (or even any) effort to charge anyone. I know the comment posted on the petition page was posted months ago, and suspect they hoped it would bring results. So far all I can say, is “where did it go””?

in the meantime, across Canada, I have read in the news three cases of young males, one only 14, charged with child pornography, for taking consensual video or pics and posting same. All Good. BUT…— what about Rehtaeh????

I found your blog, discussing this previously, and right now, all I can hope is persons like yourself (bloggers and writers), might stir enough interest to bring results.

I don’t know any of these people, but to my mind it horrifies any thought there is law and justice. It is obscene. It is obscene that it appears justice is trying to exhaust family from this.

I hoped, at least if more signed the petition/sent it on/posted it, it may make authorites realize “folks want to know”.

California Man Blows Himself Up On Front Lawn

 

 

 

 

” A neighborhood in southern California remained locked down on Monday after the discovery of a body of a man who neighbors said blew himself up outside his home.

The incident happened at 8 p.m. Sunday in the 3100 block of Bermuda Drive near Labrador Drive in Costa Mesa.

Someone noticed a man on the ground in a front yard and called an ambulance.

The man declined an offer of help. It wasn’t until later, police and neighbors said, that he blew himself up.

“He was under his own power to get back to his own residence,” said Sgt. Jerry Hildeman, of the Costa Mesa Police Department. “We believed we didn’t have any reason to go further.

The police came back and found the man dead. They believe he was wearing two pipe bombs. They say it’s unclear whether he committed suicide or accidentally killed himself.”

Rehtaeh Parsons Suicide: Justice Minister Revisiting Alleged Rape Case

 

 

 

” A Canadian minister of justice is seeking answers in the investigation into the alleged rape by four teenagers of Nova Scotian teen Rehtaeh Parsons, who hanged herself last week after what her mother says was months of bullying.

Rehtaeh Parsons, 17, was taken off life-support Sunday on her mother authorization after she hanged herself at home in Cole Harbour last week. Nova Scotia Justice Minister Ross Landry said Tuesday that he hopes to meet with Parsons’ mother, Leah, to “discuss her experience with the justice system.” Landry has been reviewing details of the case and consulting with officials, according to a statement.

“I know that law enforcement and the public prosecution service do their best, every day, to administer and enforce the law,” Landry said. “I am committed to exploring the mechanisms that exist to review the actions of all relevant authorities to ensure the system is always working to the best of its ability, in pursuit of justice.”

 

 

 

 

” In a lengthy post on a Facebook tribute page to her daughter, Leah Parsons outlined what she says led to her daughter’s suicide. In November 2011, Parsons said, Rehtaeh went with a friend to another’s home, where she was raped by four teenage boys.

“One of those boys took a photo of her being raped and decided it would be fun to distribute the photo to everyone in Rehtaeh’s school and community, where it quickly went viral,” Parsons wrote. “Because the boys already had a ‘slut’ story, the victim of the rape Rehtaeh was considered a SLUT.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mystery Surrounds Death of Teens in Botched Texas Burglary

 

”  Two Oklahoma teenagers are dead after a shootout with a Texas couple whose house they were attempting to rob on Wednesday, March 20.  The gunfight between the homeowners and the two teens ended unexpectedly when both of the teens, independently of each other, took their own lives.

A woman was home at her Maypearl, Texas ranch Wednesday afternoon, watching television, when she heard her back door rattling.  When she went to see about the noise, she came face to face with an armed man trying to get in.

Her husband arrived and met the two men outside of his house.  Kenneth Chaffin, 17, and Dillon King, 18, both opened fire.

This incident began Monday, when Oklahoma sheriff’s officials began searching for Kennth Chaffin who robbed his own home in Bethel Acres, Oklahoma.  Chaffin who had a history of running away, had stolen his parents pickup truck, prescription medication, 17 guns and more than 2,000 rounds of ammunition.  Though King left with Chaffin on Monday, King had not been reported missing.”

Aaron Swartz Lawyers Accuse Prosecutor Stephen Heymann Of Misconduct

 

 

 

” WASHINGTON – Federal prosecutor Stephen Heymann engaged in prosecutorial misconduct by withholding key evidence from the defense team of Aaron Swartz, the late Internet activist’s legal team alleged in a letter to an internal Justice Department ethics unit.

Heymann took the lead in the much-criticized effort to imprison Swartz, who committed suicide in January, and was the attorney who handled the case on a day-to-day basis, reporting to U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz. Swartz’ attorney Eliot Peters has filed a complaint with the Department of Justice’s Office of Professional Responsibility, a step that indicates just how egregious the defense team considers Heymann’s professional behavior. A redacted version of the letter was obtained by The Huffington Post.

In the document, Peters argues that Heymann withheld exculpatory evidence. At issue was whether the federal government had properly obtained a warrant to search Swartz’ computer and thumb drive. Peters argued that the government failed by waiting more than a month to obtain the warrant. Heymann countered that he couldn’t get a warrant because he didn’t have access to the equipment. But an email in Heymann’s possession, which was written to Heymann himself, showed that assertion to be untrue.”
