If You See Something, Say Something

It seems that active shooter events are occurring with a greater frequency and it is striking fear and anxiety in many people.  It is commonly thought that most active shooter events, like lone wolf terror attacks are impossible to stop.  People generally believe the lone wolf attackers are nearly invisible, that they do not communicate with others, and that is why they are so hard to detect and disrupt.  Recent studies have challenged these beliefs and we are actually finding that in about half of all terror events the perpetrators give some indication of their extreme views and/or their intention to commit violent acts.  Much like the lone wolf terrorists, we believe the active shooter in our schools, in our workplaces, and in our homes are not as invisible as is often assumed and their intention to commit violent acts are often announced.  They often announce their feelings and intentions to close family and friends, to classmates, or on line on social media.

We need to be aware, we need to listen and we need to remind ourselves – If You See Something, Say Something.  The attached paper (click here) discusses these issues in more detail.
