    It doesn't validate your opinion at all.
    Hilarious that you hang on to such opinions, even when your own information disputes it.
    Which study are you talking about?

    Just forget it.

    This isn't worth my time.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Not to take this thread off into the "chimps and humans are cousins" direction, but...seems like the most logical place to look when trying to understand human behavior.
    Multiple chimps attacking a single chimp, is not mass murder, that is gang violence.

    There are women mass killers, there are very few but even one is a awful occurrence, like Theresa knorr.

    "Mass murder is defined as “the sudden, intentional
    killing of more than one person in the same location and at the
    same time, usually by a single person” (Palermo & Ross, 1999,
    p.8). Turvey (2008) notes that the problem of mass murders is
    not unique to the United States. However, Hamamoto (2002)
    argues that the United States produce most of the world’s mass
    murderers because of a “blow back” by civilians scripting
    violence in a hyper-militarised America which started with the
    increasing military adventures after World War II. Research on
    mass murder is relatively limited when compared to other
    forms of multiple homicide (Bowers, et al, 2010), yet several
    authors have identified descriptive characteristics, patterns, and
    typologies that differentiate mass murder from other forms of
    multiple murder and from murder in general (Fox & Levin,
    2012, Bowers, et al, 2010, Bartol & Bartol, 2011).


    The rich countries that have less mass murders than the US is from other studies that show that:
    "The U.S. has far more gun-related killings than any other developed country"
    Chart: The U.S. has far more gun-related killings than any other developed country

    Conclusion: Finland is 125% as violent as we are. Nonsense, right?

    Statistics regarding rare events is basically useless. We cannot claim that "American society has more mass shootings than any other".


    I don't get your math. If Finland had 2 mass killings in the last seven years. Then with our 24, we've had 12 times the number of mass shootings as Finland in the last 7 years.

    Please tell me you are joking.

    Finland: 5 million people.
    USA: 315 million people.

    When we are talking about America supposedly having more mass shootings than other countries - we surely mean the rate, per capita, right?

    Or other, an please explain;

    Thanks!
    I'm surprised that throughout this whole thread no one brought in the stats . . . bring in the stats I cry!

    http://maamodt.asp.radford.edu/Seria...Statistics.pdf

    Enjoyment (thrill, lust) is the #1 reason - (accounting for 48%) - which account for the frequency of rape.
    Financial Gain is #2 (31%)

    The US has produced over 2,000
    Italy is next with 100
    It goes down from there.

    The general statistic of the serial killer use to be a white male in his late 20's - but when you look at facts decade by decade you'll see a shift - it use to be more common (the generalized stat) in the earlier decades of the 20th c - but in recent decades it has started to shift - in the 1990's it tipped towards blacks becoming serial killers over whites and has remained that way.

    Also - the earlier decades netted a greater percentage of women - still outnumbered by men but it's tapered off.

    I don't know why this is, but this is what I've observed.
    Yeah - if we set up a weighted scale . . . women would top it off, I bet you - like: killing children is worse - motive and means of killing is . . . like the Spinster Sisters who had an 'adoption agency' - and they just took unwanted babies, killed them, and kept the money. Hundreds of babies.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
