Mass Shootings in the US: Some Common Characteristics of the Men That Kill

mikenova shared this story .

This week’s massacre at a country music festival in downtown Las Vegas, which left at least 59 people dead and more than 500 injured, reminds us that the locations and circumstances of mass shootings in America are unpredictable. But according to one researcher, these tragedies are much less random and inexplicable than media reports and solemn speeches by public officials typically suggest.

The shooters often share three converging characteristics, according to Eric Madfis of the University of Washington, Tacoma, one of the world’s leading experts on mass murderers in the US.

In a 2014 paper published in the journal Men and Masculinities, Madfis determined that mass killers tend to share elements of white entitlement, middle-class instability and downward economic mobility, and heterosexual masculinity.

“This is about entitlement because white people are socialized into believing that they are the dominant group in society,” Madfis told Seeker, “and so they have the highest expectations for their own success, and are less able to cope with loss when they fail to achieve that success.”

“The American middle class has shrunk, the economy has been de-industrialized, and wages have not increased in decades,” he continued. As a result, “many more Americans are experiencing downward mobility.”

While alleged Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s finances remain unclear, and convicted Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof, to take another recent example, may seem too young to have had major financial concerns, Madfis argues that financial anxiety can be “particularly threatening for many men who, as the traditional breadwinners, feel a great sense of shame when they aren’t able to provide the sort of life for their families that they anticipated.”

RELATED: Study of Convicted Terrorists Reveals Deviant Moral Judgment

Prior research cited by Madfis has found that whites commit mass murder at a slightly higher rate relative to their share of the population, with 69.9 percent of American mass killers being non-Hispanic whites. A more recent dataset from Mother Jones covering 1982 to 2017 shows that 54 percent of mass shootings involving three or more deaths were committed by white men. Black people ranked second, but made up only 16 percent of the total.

Madfis’s analysis suggests that this white disproportionality is exclusive to this type of killer. Whether or not Paddock fully fits Madfis’s profile remains an open question.

“It is hard to tell based on the available information, but certainly he was a straight white male,” he said. “He had no prior history of criminal behavior, which is actually quite typical of mass killers. He was also divorced twice, and that is the type of life stressor which mass killers often experience many times.”

Paddock’s father was a serial bank robber who was arrested by the FBI when Paddock was seven years old. He later escaped from prison and landed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. It’s uncertain what effect this might have had on Paddock, the eldest of four sons.

Early news reports suggest Paddock owned several homes and could potentially be quite wealthy, which Madfis acknowledged is atypical of the general mass shooter profile.

“But he was also a prolific gambler, so it would not surprise me at all to learn that he recently suffered a significant financial loss,” he noted. “That said, mass killers do not just ‘snap.’”

Paddock had reportedly been involved in some high-stakes bets in the weeks ahead of the shooting, according to NBC News, wagering anywhere between $10,000 to $30,000 a day on several occasions. Investigators have not yet determined whether he was winning or losing money.

Madfis’s analysis of mass murderers goes back to 1999, his junior year of high school. Following the Columbine High School massacre that year, he noted copycat shootings. At his own school, someone wrote in the boys’ bathroom, “Columbine Could Happen Here,” along with a particular date. Many people skipped school that day, but Madfis attended as usual.

At the end of the day, after nothing had happened, a friend turned to him at their lockers and said sarcastically, “Boy, today sure was disappointing.” The vice-principal of the school overheard the statement, interpreted it as a threat, and suspended his friend.

This sparked Madfis’s interest in the responses to shootings.

“I wanted to know more, not only about what causes these types of events, but also about evidence-based solutions to actually prevent them,” he said.

RELATED: Loneliness and Self-Centeredness Amplify Each Other in a Vicious Feedback Loop

Studies repeatedly show that upwards of 90 percent of mass killers are male, with the vast majority identifying as straight.

“Violence often operates as a signifier of masculinity, and so someone who has failed to achieve a manly, macho identity in other realms — such as in work, love, or sports — can be seen as powerful and masculine simply by engaging in violence,” Madfis said.

Violence, he added, seems to be a solution for certain men not only because of the association of violence with masculinity, but also because of cultural cues that establish aggression as an appropriate masculine reaction to shame.

“Some men respond to perceived emasculation in the socially approved manner for men — with violence,” he said.

Madfis emphasizes that his argument is based on the performance of masculinity and gender, “rather than one about biological sex differences.” A transgender male should therefore be vulnerable to such behaviors, but Madfis said that since “trans people are forced to face myriad challenges throughout their lives” they “do not have the same privileges or lack of coping mechanisms as cisgender males.”

Mass murders are very different from homicide because the latter typically involves single-victim events. According to FBI crime statistics, interracial homicides in the US do not seem to exhibit the crisis in white identity that Madfis sees among many mass murderers in America. Last year, for example, it was reported that about 8.6 percent of black victims were killed by whites, while 15.8 percent of white victims were killed by blacks.

“The vast majority of homicide is intraracial, with blacks killing blacks, and whites killing whites,” Madfis said.

RELATED: Brothers Who Are Terrorists: Why It’s Common

Robert Hanlon of the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine pointed out that in addition to cultural and societal influences, neurobiology and personality facets should be considered when attempting to analyze killers.

Certain genetic mutations mostly affecting males have been shown to increase a person’s risk for violent behavior 13-fold.

“All of our behavior has both a genetic and environmental component — they cannot be separated,” neuroscientist Jeremy Richman of the Avielle Foundation — named after Avielle Rose Richman, who was killed during the 2012 mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut — told Seeker.

Madfis rejects a strong genetic connection between violence committed by non-human male primates and violence committed by men.

“If that were the case,” he said, “one would see more stable and constant rates of mass murder all across the world and throughout history. However, we are seeing more instances of mass murder now in the United States for a reason.”

A 2016 cross-national study that looked at 171 countries confirmed that there are more public mass shootings in the US than in any other country in the world.

Madfis argues that political and cultural responses are necessary for diminishing gun violence in America.

“We need to work against our problematic culture, which associates violence with masculinity and glorifies gun culture and violence as a way to attain a sense of masculine power and lasting fame,” he said. “We also could do a lot more to prevent these attacks with a far more robust mental health system, and especially with mental health care that focuses on addressing toxic forms of masculinity.”

Las Vegas shooting: What was Stephen Paddock’s motive?

mikenova shared this story from BBC News – Home.

“Everyone has three lives,” Colombian author Gabriel Garcia Marquez once posited. “A public life, a private life and a secret life.”

It remains unclear whether a secret life led Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old wealthy, retired accountant with a penchant for gambling, to open fire on a Las Vegas music festival crowd and kill 58 people and injure 500 others before turning the gun on himself.

Police are continuing to search for clues on what would trigger him to commit the deadliest US shooting in recent history.

“My hunch is there is a secret life here that will eventually be uncovered,” said J Reid Meloy, a forensic psychologist at the University of California at San Diego who researches mass shootings.

Though the suspect appeared to show no red flags about his intentions, Paddock had been quietly stockpiling 33 high-powered weapons – which included assault rifles and explosives – over the past 13 months. He spent decades acquiring guns and ammunition, police said.

Paddock’s family and friends appeared puzzled by the attack, with his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, describing him as “a kind, caring, quiet man”, while his brother, Eric Paddock, told reporters that he was stunned.

But Mr Meloy said there are several warning behaviours that signal whether an individual might be capable of committing such a crime.

Eric Paddock says he is in total shock after police named his brother, Stephen, as the shooter

One such behaviour pattern Paddock demonstrated is pathway, or engaging in research, planning and preparation for an act of violence.

At least 23 guns – 12 of which were equipped with bump-stocks, or rapid fire devices – were found inside Paddock’s Mandalay Bay hotel room while he also set up cameras both inside and outside the suite.

Paddock also wired $100,000 (£75,400) to his girlfriend while she was in the Philippines and instructed her to buy a house with the cash, removing her from the final stages of his plan.

But Paddock did not appear to show other behavioural patterns typical of perpetrators, Mr Meloy said, including fixation on a person or issue, identification with a previous attacker or as a soldier for a particular cause, or acting out in novel aggression, testing his ability to become violent.

However, that may change as the investigation unfolds, he said.

‘Why me?’: Survivors of a senseless act face a different kind of trauma

The retiree’s age also appears to stand out among previous active shooters, which typically range from 15-19 years old and the 35-44 age group, according to a New York Police Department Active Shooter report released last year.

Adam Lankford, a University of Alabama criminologist and researcher who tracks global mass shootings, said individuals who carry out such crimes tend to have suicidal motives or appear indifferent to life or death, perceive themselves as victims or seek attention and fame.

Mr Lankford warned that without explicit statements from Paddock about his reasons for the attack, determining a motive is mostly speculation.

But he pointed out Paddock filed a negligence lawsuit against the owner of The Cosmopolitan resort and casino in Las Vegas in 2012, alleging he “slipped and fell on an obstruction on the floor” that cost him $30,600 in medical expenses. The casino’s owner disputed the claims and the lawsuit was dropped in 2014, court records show.

That could have been an incident of perceived victimisation, Mr Lankford suggested.

Another striking detail from Paddock’s life is his father, who spent years on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list as a bank robber and whose criminal career spanned five decades.

Though Paddock did not grow up with his father, the detail could shed light on the gunman’s perception of fame, Mr Lankford said.

“His father became famous for committing crimes,” Mr Lankford continued, “that’s a dangerous lesson for a child.”

Mr Meloy also questioned whether there might have been a heritability of psychopathy in Paddock, passed on from his father.

“I’m not saying he committed this mass murder because of the psychopathy of his father,” Mr Meloy cautioned. “But imagine the degree of callousness, detachment and cruelty that it would take to open fire on that crowd.

“The motivation may be very much embedded in his personality.”


Who is Stephen Paddock?

  • From 1976 to 1985 worked as a postman, an Internal Revenue Service agent and an auditor for the Defense Contract Audit Agency
  • Worked for the predecessor company of Lockheed Martin in the 80s
  • Maintained relations with his younger brother Eric but estranged from older brothers Bruce and Patrick
  • Grew up in Sun Valley, California, and attended California State University in Northridge
  • He was married twice and had no children

Sources: US media reports


Mental illness is another trait that often permeates the narrative of a mass shooting, but Jonathan Metzl, a Vanderbilt University professor who studies the history of mental illness, warned that linking it to gun violence is misguided.

While estimates vary, a 2015 analysis of perpetrators who killed or intended to kill four or more people found that 22% of male killers displayed evidence of mental illness.

Less than 5% of US gun-related killings between 2001 and 2010 were committed by people diagnosed with a mental illness, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

And according to a 2016 database of mass shootings involving four or more victims, just 15% of mass shooting suspects had a psychotic disorder while 11% had paranoid schizophrenia, Northeastern University criminologist James Alan Fox found.

People who suffer mental illness are actually far more likely to be a victim of a violent crime rather than commit the act themselves, Mr Metzl said.

“Linking [mental illness] to mass shootings reinforces the stigma that people with mental illness are ticking time bombs,” he said. “And in turn, it ignores the context of gun culture, gun access and other factors that play a part in a shooting.”

Instead, Mr Metzl explained that the focus should be preventing an individual like Paddock from carrying out a mass shooting rather than retro-actively trying to predict who could.

However, Mr Meloy emphasised that while warning behaviours can help prevent acts of violence, they cannot predict them.

Why Are There So Many Conflicting Numbers on Mass Shootings?

mikenova shared this story .

No one would argue over whether the horrific massacre at a Las Vegas concert on Sunday, which claimed the lives of 58 people and injured over 500 more, fits the definition of a mass shooting. Nor does anyone quibble over that classification for the Orlando nightclub shooting that killed 49 and injured 53, or Sandy Hook, or Virginia Tech, or any of the other outbursts of gun violence that have claimed hundreds of lives in past decade alone.

But what about the Plano, Texas man who fatally shot his estranged wife and seven other people at a private party just last week? Or the 25-year-old man who opened fire during a church service in Antioch, Tenn. just a few days earlier, killing one parishioner and wounding seven, many of whom remained hospitalized days later?

Under the current federal definition, authorized by President Obama in January 2013, a “mass killing” must involve at least three deaths and occur in a “place of public use,” disqualifying both the Antioch and Plano incidents. A Congressional Research Service Report published two months later acknowledged a lack of consensus on the issue and used its own definition, which required four or more deaths, not including the shooter, occurring in a public place and a gunman “who select victims somewhat indiscriminately.”

As others have already noted, there is a widespread disagreement on what constitutes a mass shooting. The Washington Post‘s Christopher Ingraham identified three broad categories, from the one used by Mother Jones magazine (and TIME), which also limits incidents to public places and three deaths not including the shooter, to the broad categorization used by the non-profit Gun Violence Archive, which includes any incident in which four people were killed or injured, leading to much higher incident counts.

To wit: A Vox article on Monday reports that “[t]here have been more than 1,500 mass shootings since Sandy Hook,” using Gun Violence Archive Data, while Mother Jones‘ database contains only 29 mass shootings in that time. Neither are incorrect. But the discrepancy can easily lead to confusion when different outlets report vastly different numbers using the same term.

“It’s a tricky issue here,” says Avery Gardiner, the co-president of the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence. The Brady Campaign defines mass shootings as incidents with four or more deaths, not including the shooter — but doesn’t limit the definition to public places or anonymous rampages.

“Some define a public mass shooting as one where the people were chosen indiscriminately. That doesn’t seem right to me,” Gardiner says. She adds that she would “absolutely” include the Plano, Texas incident. “I’d be very uncomfortable with any definition that minimized the role of domestic violence,” she says.

While the definition of a mass shooting may seem like a fairly technical or semantic debate, it has the power to drive the media narrative and the public perception of the scope of gun violence in the U.S. A universally accepted definition is unlikely, but greater transparency in how outlets report the numbers is important when the figures vary so drastically.

The gunman at last Sunday night’s shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas is entry number 134 in a database of mass shooters that two Twin Cities professors are building.

Jillian Peterson, a Hamline University assistant professor of criminology and criminal justice, and James Densley, an associate professor of criminal justice at Metropolitan State University, hope to better understand why mass shootings happen and identify ways to prevent them.

They’re focused on shootings that happen in a public place with four or more victims and aren’t family or gang-related. Peterson and Densley code mass shooters according to 50 different variables. Peterson said they go deep into shooters’ histories and look at past trauma, their parents, mental illness, their relationships with other people and their social media profiles.

From what Peterson has read about Stephen Paddock, the alleged shooter in Las Vegas, she said she’s curious to see how he fits in.

“This shooter is a little different, compared to the data we have,” said Peterson, a forensic psychologist. “He’s significantly older than average, the average age is mid-30s. Social media presence is also something we usually see, some sort of radicalization on social media or wanting to go viral on social media. In this case the shooter was not active on social media, didn’t seem to have any social media accounts.”

They’re still in the process of building data, so Peterson said they don’t have definitive statistics. But she has seen two things surface repeatedly– hopelessness and a need for notoriety in life or in death.

But trying to predict future shootings and who is most at risk can be difficult, said Peterson. “The problem is that finding a mass shooter is like finding a needle in a haystack. So, for every person that fits the profile and does a shooting there’s probably a million people that fit the profile and don’t do a shooting.”

She and Densley would like to make their database open to the public, once they finish building it. But she’s cautious about how such data could be used. “People can be labeled and be seen as risky and they’re not, and I think we don’t want to start picking up people because they seem risky.” She said information is powerful and important, but so is recognizing its limits.

On Monday, Oct. 16, Peterson and Densley will host a free public discussion on their data at Hamline University.

Mass Shootings in the US: Some Common Characteristics of the Men That Kill

1 Share

This week’s massacre at a country music festival in downtown Las Vegas, which left at least 59 people dead and more than 500 injured, reminds us that the locations and circumstances of mass shootings in America are unpredictable. But according to one researcher, these tragedies are much less random and inexplicable than media reports and solemn speeches by public officials typically suggest.

The shooters often share three converging characteristics, according to Eric Madfis of the University of Washington, Tacoma, one of the world’s leading experts on mass murderers in the US.

In a 2014 paper published in the journal Men and Masculinities, Madfis determined that mass killers tend to share elements of white entitlement, middle-class instability and downward economic mobility, and heterosexual masculinity.

“This is about entitlement because white people are socialized into believing that they are the dominant group in society,” Madfis told Seeker, “and so they have the highest expectations for their own success, and are less able to cope with loss when they fail to achieve that success.”

“The American middle class has shrunk, the economy has been de-industrialized, and wages have not increased in decades,” he continued. As a result, “many more Americans are experiencing downward mobility.”

While alleged Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s finances remain unclear, and convicted Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof, to take another recent example, may seem too young to have had major financial concerns, Madfis argues that financial anxiety can be “particularly threatening for many men who, as the traditional breadwinners, feel a great sense of shame when they aren’t able to provide the sort of life for their families that they anticipated.”

RELATED: Study of Convicted Terrorists Reveals Deviant Moral Judgment

Prior research cited by Madfis has found that whites commit mass murder at a slightly higher rate relative to their share of the population, with 69.9 percent of American mass killers being non-Hispanic whites. A more recent dataset from Mother Jones covering 1982 to 2017 shows that 54 percent of mass shootings involving three or more deaths were committed by white men. Black people ranked second, but made up only 16 percent of the total.

Madfis’s analysis suggests that this white disproportionality is exclusive to this type of killer. Whether or not Paddock fully fits Madfis’s profile remains an open question.

“It is hard to tell based on the available information, but certainly he was a straight white male,” he said. “He had no prior history of criminal behavior, which is actually quite typical of mass killers. He was also divorced twice, and that is the type of life stressor which mass killers often experience many times.”

Paddock’s father was a serial bank robber who was arrested by the FBI when Paddock was seven years old. He later escaped from prison and landed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. It’s uncertain what effect this might have had on Paddock, the eldest of four sons.

Early news reports suggest Paddock owned several homes and could potentially be quite wealthy, which Madfis acknowledged is atypical of the general mass shooter profile.

“But he was also a prolific gambler, so it would not surprise me at all to learn that he recently suffered a significant financial loss,” he noted. “That said, mass killers do not just ‘snap.’”

Paddock had reportedly been involved in some high-stakes bets in the weeks ahead of the shooting, according to NBC News, wagering anywhere between $10,000 to $30,000 a day on several occasions. Investigators have not yet determined whether he was winning or losing money.

Madfis’s analysis of mass murderers goes back to 1999, his junior year of high school. Following the Columbine High School massacre that year, he noted copycat shootings. At his own school, someone wrote in the boys’ bathroom, “Columbine Could Happen Here,” along with a particular date. Many people skipped school that day, but Madfis attended as usual.

At the end of the day, after nothing had happened, a friend turned to him at their lockers and said sarcastically, “Boy, today sure was disappointing.” The vice-principal of the school overheard the statement, interpreted it as a threat, and suspended his friend.

This sparked Madfis’s interest in the responses to shootings.

“I wanted to know more, not only about what causes these types of events, but also about evidence-based solutions to actually prevent them,” he said.

RELATED: Loneliness and Self-Centeredness Amplify Each Other in a Vicious Feedback Loop

Studies repeatedly show that upwards of 90 percent of mass killers are male, with the vast majority identifying as straight.

“Violence often operates as a signifier of masculinity, and so someone who has failed to achieve a manly, macho identity in other realms — such as in work, love, or sports — can be seen as powerful and masculine simply by engaging in violence,” Madfis said.

Violence, he added, seems to be a solution for certain men not only because of the association of violence with masculinity, but also because of cultural cues that establish aggression as an appropriate masculine reaction to shame.

“Some men respond to perceived emasculation in the socially approved manner for men — with violence,” he said.

Madfis emphasizes that his argument is based on the performance of masculinity and gender, “rather than one about biological sex differences.” A transgender male should therefore be vulnerable to such behaviors, but Madfis said that since “trans people are forced to face myriad challenges throughout their lives” they “do not have the same privileges or lack of coping mechanisms as cisgender males.”

Mass murders are very different from homicide because the latter typically involves single-victim events. According to FBI crime statistics, interracial homicides in the US do not seem to exhibit the crisis in white identity that Madfis sees among many mass murderers in America. Last year, for example, it was reported that about 8.6 percent of black victims were killed by whites, while 15.8 percent of white victims were killed by blacks.

“The vast majority of homicide is intraracial, with blacks killing blacks, and whites killing whites,” Madfis said.

RELATED: Brothers Who Are Terrorists: Why It’s Common

Robert Hanlon of the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine pointed out that in addition to cultural and societal influences, neurobiology and personality facets should be considered when attempting to analyze killers.

Certain genetic mutations mostly affecting males have been shown to increase a person’s risk for violent behavior 13-fold.

“All of our behavior has both a genetic and environmental component — they cannot be separated,” neuroscientist Jeremy Richman of the Avielle Foundation — named after Avielle Rose Richman, who was killed during the 2012 mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut — told Seeker.

Madfis rejects a strong genetic connection between violence committed by non-human male primates and violence committed by men.

“If that were the case,” he said, “one would see more stable and constant rates of mass murder all across the world and throughout history. However, we are seeing more instances of mass murder now in the United States for a reason.”

A 2016 cross-national study that looked at 171 countries confirmed that there are more public mass shootings in the US than in any other country in the world.

Madfis argues that political and cultural responses are necessary for diminishing gun violence in America.

“We need to work against our problematic culture, which associates violence with masculinity and glorifies gun culture and violence as a way to attain a sense of masculine power and lasting fame,” he said. “We also could do a lot more to prevent these attacks with a far more robust mental health system, and especially with mental health care that focuses on addressing toxic forms of masculinity.”

Las Vegas shooting: What was Stephen Paddock’s motive?

1 Share

“Everyone has three lives,” Colombian author Gabriel Garcia Marquez once posited. “A public life, a private life and a secret life.”

It remains unclear whether a secret life led Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old wealthy, retired accountant with a penchant for gambling, to open fire on a Las Vegas music festival crowd and kill 58 people and injure 500 others before turning the gun on himself.

Police are continuing to search for clues on what would trigger him to commit the deadliest US shooting in recent history.

“My hunch is there is a secret life here that will eventually be uncovered,” said J Reid Meloy, a forensic psychologist at the University of California at San Diego who researches mass shootings.

Though the suspect appeared to show no red flags about his intentions, Paddock had been quietly stockpiling 33 high-powered weapons – which included assault rifles and explosives – over the past 13 months. He spent decades acquiring guns and ammunition, police said.

Paddock’s family and friends appeared puzzled by the attack, with his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, describing him as “a kind, caring, quiet man”, while his brother, Eric Paddock, told reporters that he was stunned.

But Mr Meloy said there are several warning behaviours that signal whether an individual might be capable of committing such a crime.

Eric Paddock says he is in total shock after police named his brother, Stephen, as the shooter

One such behaviour pattern Paddock demonstrated is pathway, or engaging in research, planning and preparation for an act of violence.

At least 23 guns – 12 of which were equipped with bump-stocks, or rapid fire devices – were found inside Paddock’s Mandalay Bay hotel room while he also set up cameras both inside and outside the suite.

Paddock also wired $100,000 (£75,400) to his girlfriend while she was in the Philippines and instructed her to buy a house with the cash, removing her from the final stages of his plan.

But Paddock did not appear to show other behavioural patterns typical of perpetrators, Mr Meloy said, including fixation on a person or issue, identification with a previous attacker or as a soldier for a particular cause, or acting out in novel aggression, testing his ability to become violent.

However, that may change as the investigation unfolds, he said.

‘Why me?’: Survivors of a senseless act face a different kind of trauma

The retiree’s age also appears to stand out among previous active shooters, which typically range from 15-19 years old and the 35-44 age group, according to a New York Police Department Active Shooter report released last year.

Adam Lankford, a University of Alabama criminologist and researcher who tracks global mass shootings, said individuals who carry out such crimes tend to have suicidal motives or appear indifferent to life or death, perceive themselves as victims or seek attention and fame.

Mr Lankford warned that without explicit statements from Paddock about his reasons for the attack, determining a motive is mostly speculation.

But he pointed out Paddock filed a negligence lawsuit against the owner of The Cosmopolitan resort and casino in Las Vegas in 2012, alleging he “slipped and fell on an obstruction on the floor” that cost him $30,600 in medical expenses. The casino’s owner disputed the claims and the lawsuit was dropped in 2014, court records show.

That could have been an incident of perceived victimisation, Mr Lankford suggested.

Another striking detail from Paddock’s life is his father, who spent years on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list as a bank robber and whose criminal career spanned five decades.

Though Paddock did not grow up with his father, the detail could shed light on the gunman’s perception of fame, Mr Lankford said.

“His father became famous for committing crimes,” Mr Lankford continued, “that’s a dangerous lesson for a child.”

Mr Meloy also questioned whether there might have been a heritability of psychopathy in Paddock, passed on from his father.

“I’m not saying he committed this mass murder because of the psychopathy of his father,” Mr Meloy cautioned. “But imagine the degree of callousness, detachment and cruelty that it would take to open fire on that crowd.

“The motivation may be very much embedded in his personality.”


Who is Stephen Paddock?

  • From 1976 to 1985 worked as a postman, an Internal Revenue Service agent and an auditor for the Defense Contract Audit Agency
  • Worked for the predecessor company of Lockheed Martin in the 80s
  • Maintained relations with his younger brother Eric but estranged from older brothers Bruce and Patrick
  • Grew up in Sun Valley, California, and attended California State University in Northridge
  • He was married twice and had no children

Sources: US media reports


Mental illness is another trait that often permeates the narrative of a mass shooting, but Jonathan Metzl, a Vanderbilt University professor who studies the history of mental illness, warned that linking it to gun violence is misguided.

While estimates vary, a 2015 analysis of perpetrators who killed or intended to kill four or more people found that 22% of male killers displayed evidence of mental illness.

Less than 5% of US gun-related killings between 2001 and 2010 were committed by people diagnosed with a mental illness, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

And according to a 2016 database of mass shootings involving four or more victims, just 15% of mass shooting suspects had a psychotic disorder while 11% had paranoid schizophrenia, Northeastern University criminologist James Alan Fox found.

People who suffer mental illness are actually far more likely to be a victim of a violent crime rather than commit the act themselves, Mr Metzl said.

“Linking [mental illness] to mass shootings reinforces the stigma that people with mental illness are ticking time bombs,” he said. “And in turn, it ignores the context of gun culture, gun access and other factors that play a part in a shooting.”

Instead, Mr Metzl explained that the focus should be preventing an individual like Paddock from carrying out a mass shooting rather than retro-actively trying to predict who could.

However, Mr Meloy emphasised that while warning behaviours can help prevent acts of violence, they cannot predict them.

Why Are There So Many Conflicting Numbers on Mass Shootings?

1 Share

No one would argue over whether the horrific massacre at a Las Vegas concert on Sunday, which claimed the lives of 58 people and injured over 500 more, fits the definition of a mass shooting. Nor does anyone quibble over that classification for the Orlando nightclub shooting that killed 49 and injured 53, or Sandy Hook, or Virginia Tech, or any of the other outbursts of gun violence that have claimed hundreds of lives in past decade alone.

But what about the Plano, Texas man who fatally shot his estranged wife and seven other people at a private party just last week? Or the 25-year-old man who opened fire during a church service in Antioch, Tenn. just a few days earlier, killing one parishioner and wounding seven, many of whom remained hospitalized days later?

Under the current federal definition, authorized by President Obama in January 2013, a “mass killing” must involve at least three deaths and occur in a “place of public use,” disqualifying both the Antioch and Plano incidents. A Congressional Research Service Report published two months later acknowledged a lack of consensus on the issue and used its own definition, which required four or more deaths, not including the shooter, occurring in a public place and a gunman “who select victims somewhat indiscriminately.”

As others have already noted, there is a widespread disagreement on what constitutes a mass shooting. The Washington Post‘s Christopher Ingraham identified three broad categories, from the one used by Mother Jones magazine (and TIME), which also limits incidents to public places and three deaths not including the shooter, to the broad categorization used by the non-profit Gun Violence Archive, which includes any incident in which four people were killed or injured, leading to much higher incident counts.

To wit: A Vox article on Monday reports that “[t]here have been more than 1,500 mass shootings since Sandy Hook,” using Gun Violence Archive Data, while Mother Jones‘ database contains only 29 mass shootings in that time. Neither are incorrect. But the discrepancy can easily lead to confusion when different outlets report vastly different numbers using the same term.

“It’s a tricky issue here,” says Avery Gardiner, the co-president of the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence. The Brady Campaign defines mass shootings as incidents with four or more deaths, not including the shooter — but doesn’t limit the definition to public places or anonymous rampages.

“Some define a public mass shooting as one where the people were chosen indiscriminately. That doesn’t seem right to me,” Gardiner says. She adds that she would “absolutely” include the Plano, Texas incident. “I’d be very uncomfortable with any definition that minimized the role of domestic violence,” she says.

While the definition of a mass shooting may seem like a fairly technical or semantic debate, it has the power to drive the media narrative and the public perception of the scope of gun violence in the U.S. A universally accepted definition is unlikely, but greater transparency in how outlets report the numbers is important when the figures vary so drastically.

‘This shooter is a little different’: Hamline professor studies mass shootings

1 Share
  1. Listen Hamline professor building database on mass shooters

The gunman at last Sunday night’s shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas is entry number 134 in a database of mass shooters that two Twin Cities professors are building.

Jillian Peterson, a Hamline University assistant professor of criminology and criminal justice, and James Densley, an associate professor of criminal justice at Metropolitan State University, hope to better understand why mass shootings happen and identify ways to prevent them.

They’re focused on shootings that happen in a public place with four or more victims and aren’t family or gang-related. Peterson and Densley code mass shooters according to 50 different variables. Peterson said they go deep into shooters’ histories and look at past trauma, their parents, mental illness, their relationships with other people and their social media profiles.

From what Peterson has read about Stephen Paddock, the alleged shooter in Las Vegas, she said she’s curious to see how he fits in.

“This shooter is a little different, compared to the data we have,” said Peterson, a forensic psychologist. “He’s significantly older than average, the average age is mid-30s. Social media presence is also something we usually see, some sort of radicalization on social media or wanting to go viral on social media. In this case the shooter was not active on social media, didn’t seem to have any social media accounts.”

They’re still in the process of building data, so Peterson said they don’t have definitive statistics. But she has seen two things surface repeatedly– hopelessness and a need for notoriety in life or in death.

But trying to predict future shootings and who is most at risk can be difficult, said Peterson. “The problem is that finding a mass shooter is like finding a needle in a haystack. So, for every person that fits the profile and does a shooting there’s probably a million people that fit the profile and don’t do a shooting.”

She and Densley would like to make their database open to the public, once they finish building it. But she’s cautious about how such data could be used. “People can be labeled and be seen as risky and they’re not, and I think we don’t want to start picking up people because they seem risky.” She said information is powerful and important, but so is recognizing its limits.

On Monday, Oct. 16, Peterson and Densley will host a free public discussion on their data at Hamline University.

Numbers on note in Las Vegas hotel room helped gunman Stephen Paddock to aim

1 Share

Las Vegas: Investigators believe a note found in the Las Vegas shooter’s hotel room contained a series of numbers that helped him calculate more precise shots.

A law enforcement official told AAP the numbers found on a note on Stephen Paddock’s hotel night stand included the distance between the high-rise hotel room that Stephen Paddock was using as a perch and the concert the victims were attending.

“I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was gonna be for the crowd,” said Officer Dave Newton of the Las Vegas Police Department’s K-9 unit, the NY Daily News reported.

“So he had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there.”

The new details added a chilling new dimension to the sophisticated planning Paddock made to carry out the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

Investigators are still trying to determine a motive.

Las Vegas shooting: Police reveal details of note in Stephen Paddock’s room | World | News

1 Share

Stephen Paddock opened fire on a huge crowd of music fans from the 32nd floor of the building, killing 58 people and injuring almost 500.

Police found Paddock dead after bursting into his hotel room following the massacre, with photos showing a notebook on a nightstand.

Now officers have revealed what was written in the notebook, giving a sick insight into the moments leading up to Paddock spraying the crowd of 22,000 people.

Officer David Newton said: “I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was going to be for the crowd.

“So he had had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there.”

The notebook meticulously laid out how to kill the most people from his vantage point high above the helpless crowd.

Officer Newton also detailed the horrifying moment police finally breached the attacker’s hotel room, in scenes he said were like something “out of a movie”.

He said: “Very eerie. Yeah, the dust from the explosive breach and then you have the flashing lights.”

Investigators are still desperately attempting to piece together what exactly happened on the night of the deadliest shooting in US history.

Shortly before 10.05pm local time Paddock used a hammer to break two windows in his luxury Mandalay Bay resort and casino suite.

As the final performance at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival wound down, Paddock began shooting thousands of bullets into the packed crowd.

For 10 minutes the crowd attempted take shelter, with some simply lying on the ground, as Paddock picked off victims.

At 10.15pm or so the shooting stopped. Two minutes later a security guard arrived at his door and was injured when Paddock fired some 200 bullets through it.

At this point armed police arrived on the floor and began searching every room. At 10.55pm they reached Paddock’s room, forcing their way in around half an hour later.

They found Paddock dead on the floor, with officers quickly spotting the note on a table near his body.

Investigators are still clueless as to Paddock’s motive – but are not ruling out he may have had help in carrying out the slaughter.Earlier this week Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said: “Do you think this was all accomplished on his own. You’ve got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point.”

BOB BARR: Chris Wray at the FBI: A breath of fresh air | Opinion

1 Share

In spite of this week’s horrific news from Las Vegas, I remain convinced that Americans, on the whole, are the most kind, moral and resilient people on the planet. This is why crimes and tragedies such as mass shootings shake us to the core; they challenge what we know about ourselves, along with the sense of justice that binds together a free and peaceful society. Without faith in justice — our collective sense of knowing right from wrong — society falls apart at the seams.

Therefore, amongst all the news of tragedy this week, it behooves us to focus at least some of our emotional energy on the good news coming from a major facet of justice in American society — the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and its newly sworn-in director, Christopher Wray.

I had the honor of attending Wray’s swearing-in ceremony in Washington last week; and the praise directed to him during the event, along with what I know of Wray from his time spent in Atlanta as an Assistant United States Attorney, as a top official at Main Justice during the second Bush Administration, and as an attorney in private practice, demonstrate there is much to be optimistic about regarding his tenure at an agency suffering through a period of waning public confidence.

Wray’s speech at his investiture was rife with heartfelt and genuine respect for the FBI as an institution, acknowledging the agency’s proud history of sacrifice and integrity in pursuit of its mission. His remarks also offered a glimpse at his refreshingly professional approach to directing the FBI. This is a welcome change of pace.

To be sure, over the decades as a watchdog of government abuse of power, I have been hard on the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies when they fail to truly uphold the law and the Constitution. For example, the conduct of federal agencies during the Waco (1993) and Ruby Ridge (1992) sieges warranted intense scrutiny and scorn for failing to stay within both operational and legal boundaries during the incidents; and I was among those who demanded that they be held accountable.

In the short term, accountability ensures the guilty and corrupt are punished for their crimes. For the longer term, accountability is the first step in helping to ensure such mistakes are not repeated. Pleasantly, this was a theme in Wray’s remarks. The FBI’s history “hasn’t come without missteps … without errors in judgment,” said the new Director. But the former prosecutor did not leave it at that, as others might have; he continued: “But we take those mistakes, and we learn from them. We get better at doing what we need to do, and closer to being the very best we can be.”

Wray may have been referring to the historical “missteps” and “errors in judgement” like those I mentioned above, but it is not hard to infer he may also have been referring to those of his predecessor, James Comey, who took center stage in a political drama in which neither he nor the agency should ever find themselves. Fortunately, Wray carries no such baggage. “A director must know it is not about him, but about security, justice and law,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said of Wray at the ceremony; concluding that, “Director Wray meets that test in full. … He has no hidden agendas.”

This is precisely what the FBI needs at this moment in time. It needs a restart that puts its mission — “to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution,” as Wray put it — at the forefront of the agency, rather than be driven — even in part — by any political or other hidden agenda. It needs a leader who “always pursue(s) justice,” as Wray eloquently put it, echoing James Madison in the Federalist Papers that justice is indeed the ultimate goal and purpose of government; and always with a “drive and passion for excellence.” Finally, it needs a director who does not see himself as bigger than the agency he leads. Wray is that leader.

It is certainly a high bar set for him and the Bureau, but listening to Wray speak, and hearing others like Sessions speak of him, it is clear that Wray is the right man for the job, at exactly the right time. His plate is full already; but by every measure, he is well-poised to take on the challenges.

Bob Barr is a former federal prosecutor and a former Congressman. He represented Georgia’s 7th congressional district as a Republican from 1995 to 2003.

Stephen Paddock barricaded door at Mandalay Bay Resort

1 Share

LAS Vegas sniper Stephen Paddock left no stone unturned before orchestrating the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

More details have emerged on the extraordinary planning the 64-year-old went to before he opened fire on a 22,000-strong crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. At least 58 people were killed during the rampage.

Authorities said Paddock “extensively” planned the attack after discovering he set up cameras around the hotel to spy on police, even hiding one in a food service cart.

But now, a Wall Street Journal report reveals Paddock may have also had “target practice” in the desert near his home two days before the massacre.

Investigators have reportedly uncovered video footage from a home-surveillance system that shows Stephen Paddock driving alone to an area on the outskirts of Mesquite, Nevada, where locals go for target practice.

The footage shows Paddock heading to the area on the Friday before the Sunday attack, the official told the Journal. It was one spot where he reportedly practised shooting.

The video footage shows Paddock driving along a road that leads to a spot in the desert where everyone goes to shoot, the law-enforcement official added.

However, a range manager told the Journal Paddock had no military service record and never used his arsenal at the only shooting range within 32km of his home.

A spokeswoman for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department didn’t respond to a request for comment.

COPS DESCRIBE 12 MINUTES OF HELL

Las Vegas police officers described in harrowing detail the tense 12 minutes they spent trying to breach the mass murderer’s lair — and the paranoia that gripped them once they were inside, the New York Post reports.

Smoke hung thick inside the room — tinged with the scent of spent gunpowder and sporadically illuminated by a blinking fire-alarm light — when officers first stepped into Mandalay Bay’s Room 32-135, where Paddock, now dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, spent the previous three days building his sniper’s nest, according to the police in an interview with CBS TV’s 60 Minutes.

The sight — and the seeming impossibility that a lone man in his 60s could have caused such carnage — only intensified the officers’ paranoia as they worked to clear the hazy hotel room, they said.

Officer Dave Newton responded to the Vegas shooting. Picture: CBS NewsSource:Supplied

“It was still very much in my brain there’s 50 other dudes in here somewhere,” Detective Matthew Donaldson recalled. “You know, we were still clearing that room, the curtains, moving the curtains. I wanted to make sure somebody wasn’t hiding between the windows and the curtains.”

They had reason to fear Paddock had help, though investigators later determined he acted alone: The first person to reach the room, Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos, was met with a hail of gunfire when he had approached the door just minutes before.

By the time Paddock was done shooting at Campos, who escaped with a leg injury, the door to his room looked like “Swiss cheese,” Officer David Newton told 60 Minutes.

Newton and other officers coming from the floor below struggled to open a stairwell door that Paddock had jammed shut with metal shims and screws.

Then they saw his splintered door room and a nearby room-service cart with wires hanging off it, prompting fears it was booby-trapped. It was later revealed that Paddock had installed a camera on the cart to watch for anyone coming to stop him.

As officers prepared to blast open what was left of Paddock’s door, they worried that the slightest noise could give away their positions — and lead to another volley of gunfire from the room.

They eventually blasted open the door, revealing “an armory” inside, according to Sgt. Joshua Bitsko.

Along with hundreds of spent casings, officers found Paddock’s lifeless body on the floor. As cops stepped over the corpse and peered through smoke, the totality of Paddock’s sick project came into focus.

“Days of planning,” Bitsko said. “He had toolboxes, power tools to run wires for his surveillance systems. For everything that he had, it took him days to finish.”

Seeing the level of preparation only innervated police as they scoured the suite and adjoining room for any sign of accomplices.

When they found no one else, they left as quickly as they came.

“And then — once that scene was static it was — it was essentially a crime scene. It was, like, ‘Stop what you’re doing. Get out,’ ” Donaldson said.

PADDOCK: ‘I WAS BORN BAD’

The Sun reports Paddock boasted in text messages about his father Benjamin being a bank robber who escaped jail in 1969.
He wrote: “I didn’t have anything really to do with him but the bad streak is in my blood. I was born bad.”

The escort described him as “obsessive” and “paranoid” and said he would rant about conspiracy theories, including claiming 9/11 was an inside job by the US government.

The woman, 27, saw Paddock around nine times from November 2015 to June 2016 when he would visit Las Vegas without his girlfriend Marilou Danley, 62.

Paddock — who made $5.8 million in 2015, mostly from gambling — would pay her up to $10,000 a time.

They even stayed in the Mandalay Bay, from where he was to open fire on a music festival, slaughtering 58 before killing himself.

The escort, who does not want to be named, said: “When I first met Stephen I had left an abusive relationship and was starting all over again with nothing but the clothes I was wearing.

“He seemed like he wanted to help. We would go to the casinos together and he would spend hours drinking and gambling.

“But when he would have a winning streak, we would go back and have really aggressive and violent sex.”

The Sun was reportedly shown text messages which appeared to show Paddock discussing tying her up “as you scream for help”.

The escort broke off contact when she started a new relationship.

She said: “He had a dark and twisted side. But even so, I could never have imagined he would do something like this.”

GUNMAN HAD ‘VANILLA PROFILE’

The owner of a casino where Stephen Paddock gambled says the Las Vegas gunman didn’t drink alcohol or show any signs of trouble when he was a customer there. Steve Wynn said in an interview on “Fox News Sunday” that Paddock had “the most vanilla profile one could possibly imagine.”

He says Paddock didn’t run up debts or have a gambling problem. Wynn said butlers, waiters and massage employees knew Paddock and his girlfriend.

Wynn also described some of the security measures his casino put in place in recent years that include magnetometers and training of housekeeping staff to report suspicious actions like a do-not-disturb sign remaining on a door for an extended period of time.

FBI RETURNS LOST BELONGINGS

Officials say they’re beginning to return personal belongings to concertgoers who were in one corner of the festival grounds.

Deputy Clark County Fire Chief John Steinbeck announced that items are being returned to people at a Family Assistance Center in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

For now, items are being returned to people who were in the area in and around the VIP tent and bleacher seating east of the stage at the Route 91 Harvest festival.

Federal agents have spent almost a week collecting evidence amid thousands of personal items like cellphones, baby strollers, lawn chairs, backpacks, shoes and purses left behind when people scattered late October 1.

Vegas prostitute says Stephen Paddock enjoyed violent sex

1 Share

Las Vegas prostitute who was hired by murderer Stephen Paddock has spoken out about their ‘violent’ sex sessions and how he bragged about having ‘bad blood’.

The woman, who spoke anonymously, said she would spent hours drinking and gambling in Sin City with Paddock, who she described as ‘paranoid’ and ‘obsessive’.

If he hit a winning streak, he would take her back to his room for ‘really aggressive and violent sex’ including living out rape fantasies, she said.

Paddock also boasted about his bank-robber father, saying that ‘the bad streak is in my blood’ and ‘I was born bad’, according to texts seen by the Sun on Sunday.

The 27-year-old woman said Paddock, 64, would often rant about conspiracy theories including how 9/11 was orchestrated by the US government.

The escort, who said Paddock paid her $6,000-a-time for their meetings, also had texts in which he described tying her up ‘while you scream for help’.

She spoke out after family members revealed that Paddock often consorted with prostitutes who were laid on by hotels while he paid regular visits to the city.

Officials close to the investigation into the shooting revealed that Paddock may have hired an escort in the days before the massacre.

A receipt from Paddock’s hotel room showed two people ordered room service in the days before the attack.

Family members revealed that Paddock often sought the company of prostitutes while in Vegas as they said his relationship with girlfriend Marilou Danley was 'not warm'

Meanwhile investigators said they are interviewing other call girls in the hope of ascertaining a motive for the worst mass shooting in American history.

In Paddock’s room, officials found a piece of paper containing a number of phone numbers but they reiterated no suicide note was found.

Law enforcement have said they are ‘confident’ Paddock carried out the Mandalay Bay massacre from his hotel room alone.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said on Friday that investigators are sure no one else was in the room before he shot dead 58 and injured almost 500 on Sunday.

Earlier, NBC News had reported a mysterious charger that did not match any of Paddock’s cellphones – raising the possibility that another person had been with Paddock beforehand.

However, later police said that they have now matched all the cell phones and all the chargers and that they belong to Paddock.

Benjamin was nicknamed ‘Big Daddy’, ‘Chromedome’ and ‘Old Baldy’ and described by FBI agents hunting him as ‘psychopathic, armed and dangerous’

It was earlier revealed that Benjamin Paddock, Stephen’s father, was an FBI most-wanted bank robber and confidence man known as ‘Big Daddy’.

Nenjamin was captured in Las Vegas in 1960 – then escaped and lived on the run for a decade.

He was described as psychopathic, armed and dangerous and suicidal – and the public were told not to approach the man known as ‘Chromedome’ and ‘Old Baldy’.

Stephen was just seven years old and living in Arizona when his father Benjamin Paddock was nabbed by the FBI for a series of bank robberies.

At the time, Stephen’s mother tried desperately to shield her young son and his three siblings from the devastating news that their father was living a double life as a bank robber and con-man.

‘We’re trying to keep Steve from knowing his father is held as a bank robber,’ a neighbour told the Tucson Daily Citizen on July 29, 1960. ‘I hardly know the family, but Steve is a nice boy. It’s a terrible thing.’
