Prior to 2013, the standard definition of a mass shooting was when three or more are injured or killed in a single incident within a public place. In January of 2013, less than a month after 20 children and six adults were fatally shot at Sandy Hook elementary school in Connecticut, Barack Obama signed legislation that defines a “mass killing” as three or more people killed in a single incident.
Mother Jones, a news organization that tracks mass shooting incidents, conveniently excludes shootings that are a result of gang activity from their tracker. They stopped updating their database early in 2020 when four of the last seven mass shooters turned out to be Black Americans.
But even when these shootings are not included in databases such as the one Mother Jones created, we still find that White males are not overrepresented compared to their population percentage of the United States, 62%.
Other databases recognize the same instances one the Mother Jones database, but diverge when it comes to gang shootings and other single incident gunshot injuries.
The Gun Violence archive database uses the standard definition of three or more injured or killed, and includes these types of shootings. Approximately 90% of total mass shootings where 3 or more are injured or killed are committed by Black males, and overwhelmingly victimize other Black males.
Using the source links from the Gun Violence Archive, Mass Shooting Info breaks down the demographic characteristics of most of those mass shootings by region, state, city, race, and gender of the perpetrators.
In Chicago, there is an epidemic of gang members committing mass shootings at the funerals of their rival gang members, attempting to kill as many family members of their rivals as possible.
Memory-holed from the media are shootings like the one in Chicago’s Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood, where 15 people were shot and multiple dead in a single shooting incident.
Just a few days later, a 21 year-old man walked into a Dallas night club and shot 8 people killing 1. Only local media outlets covered this story, and this story doesn’t make it onto most databases of mass shootings.
Another shooting at a Pennsylvania bowling Alley around the same time period where 5 people were shot leaving one dead, was also brushed under the rug by the media once the perpetrator was identified.
Just a couple of weeks before the Pennsylvania bowling alley shooting, a 27 year-old man walked into a gun shop in the suburbs of Louisiana and shot 5 killing 3 after employees told the man that loaded guns were not allowed in the store.
Mass shooting incidents like this in Chicago, Baltimore, St Louis, and other minority-majority areas of the country are a weekly theme.
Thirty four of America’s largest cities have suffered a 30 percent increase in homicides in the year of 2020, according to a survey, with police in four Midwestern cities reporting increases of more than 60 percent over 2019.
The surge started almost directly after the death of George Floyd, and widespread protests and riots involving black lives matter.
In Milwaukee, homicides rose from 97 to 189, a 95 percent increase. In Louisville, homicides increased from 90 to 173, a 92 percent increase.
The Minneapolis Police Department has been making an average of 80% fewer traffic stops each week since May 25, the day of Floyd’s death, according to an analysis by Bloomberg CityLab.
Stops for “suspicious vehicles,” which means pursuit of vehicles thought to be involved in a crime, dropped 24%. “Suspicious person” stops were down 39% since May 25.
All across the nation, police are either retiring or transferring at the highest rates in history, many anonymously citing the Black Lives Matter riots and state and local government action that follows, making it impossible to do their jobs in black areas.
Police retirements in New York City have surged dramatically in the wake of widespread Black Lives Matters protests that began in late May 2020.
The New York Post reported that the NYPD has even taken steps to limit retirement applications, as they have surged 411 percent, compared with the same period last year.
This is happening in all of the largest cities across the country, leading to the under-policing of minority majority areas of the country.
The mainstream media is the propaganda arm of the American regime. They are not autonomous outlets trying to “report on the facts” or give you breaking news coverage.
Mainstream media outlets are actively coercing the general public to go along with social narratives carefully selected by intelligence agencies with the aim of gaining mass support for various topics ranging from gun control to wars in the Middle East.
