Mass shootings : media, myths, and realities / by Schildkraut, Jaclyn.; Elsass, H. Jaymi.;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 163-229) and index.Claims making and agenda setting: How myths become realities -- What is a "mass shooting"? -- A history of public mass shootings -- Mass shootings by the numbers -- The "usual suspects" as causal factors -- Mass shootings around the globe -- Preventing mass shootings -- Mass shootings in a mediated society -- Mass shootings today and beyond.When a mass shooting happens, the media is flooded with headlines and breaking information about the shooters, victims, and acts themselves. What is notably absent are any concrete details to inform news consumers how prevalent these mass shootings really are (or are not, when considering crime statistics as a whole), what are legitimate causes for concern, and how likely an individual is to be involved in such an incident. Instead, these events often are used as catalysts for conversations about larger issues such as gun control and mental health care reform. What critical points are we missing when the media focuses on only what "people want to hear"? This book focuses on the myths purported about these unfortunate events, their victims, and their perpetrators through typical U.S. media coverage as well as evidence-based facts to contradict such narratives. The authors pay primary attention to contemporary shootings in the United States but also discuss events dating back to the 1700's and those occurring internationally. The accessible writing enables readers to gain a more in-depth understanding of the context of mass shootings in the United States and the resulting responses and policies.

Mr. Mercedes [sound recording] : a novel / by King, Stephen,1947-; Patton, Will,narrator.;
Read by Will Patton.Bill Hodges is bumping around, barely registering his retirement, when a maniac in a stolen Mercedes repeatedly drives into a line of unemployed folks waiting in the gray dawn of a gray Midwestern city for a job fair to open. Eight people are killed and 15 injured. Hodges immediately enlists two allies to help him find the killer, who so loved his little taste of death that he's planning to blow up thousands."In a mega-stakes, high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely and winning heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands. In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. In another part of town, months later, a retired cop named Bill Hodges is still haunted by the unsolved crime. When he gets a crazed letter from someone who self-identifies as the "perk" and threatens an even more diabolical attack, Hodges wakes up from his depressed and vacant retirement, hell-bent on preventing another tragedy. Brady Hartfield lives with his alcoholic mother in the house where he was born. He loved the feel of death under the wheels of the Mercedes, and he wants that rush again. Only Bill Hodges, with a couple of highly unlikely allies, can apprehend the killer before he strikes again. And they have no time to lose, because Brady's next mission, if it succeeds, will kill or maim thousands. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable"--Director and producer, Christina Zarafonitis ; associate producer, Ben Rimalower.
