Are You Being Realistic About the Potential for Violence in Your Family?

I know, you don’t want to believe that that person who said they loved you–or, that person who gave birth to you–will ever really hurt you…like in go to the hospital, or the morgue hurt you, right? You want to believe that they really love you, even though they only behave that way when they really want something from you. Sometimes, they also behave that way when things are going VERY well for them in life. BUT, usually, they are unpredictably frustrated, angry, raging, or giving you the silent treatment. THESE ARE SERIOUS #HIJACKALS®! When you hear about violence perpetrated in so many ways in the world–shootings, wars, subway “pushers”, rape, beatings, I hope it is a wake-up call. Have a look at your life with a Hijackal and think about the possibility of violence. There may be none, and I hope that’s the truth for you. However, many people simply don’t want to look at that possibility of violence, and do nothing. I want you to stay safe, so today, I’m talking about something that really needs to be talked about, thought about, and recognized for what it is: that potential for violence. In this episode, I ask you six questions that you are best to think about long before too much anger erupts. PLEASE listen! Listen for yourself. Listen for a friend who may be in a volatile situation. Invite him or her to listen. Maybe, it will be a wake-up call!

Mental Health Analysis On South Florida High School Shooter & Why Mass Shootings Have Become Commonplace In America 

A heavily armed 19-year-old who had been expelled from a South Florida high school opened fire on campus shortly before classes let out Wednesday, killing 17 people while terrified students barricaded themselves inside classrooms, police said. The Broward County sheriff identified the suspect as Nikolas Cruz, who had recently attended the school but had been kicked out for “disciplinary reasons.”

The Psychology Behind Las Vegas’ Mass Shooting

Sunday night a man holed up on the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel with ten rifles killed at least 58 and wounded 500 people enjoying a country music festival across the street. In a chilling scene, most people mistook the gunfire for fireworks as chaos ensued and heroic bystanders stepped up to help the wounded until police and ambulances arrived. In the wake of all that horror—horror becoming increasingly familiar.

Former British Army Officer Chris Bird has some lessons to share as well as questions to ask ourselves. Bird is the author of “Surviving a Mass Killer Rampage” and a former San Antonio Express-News crime reporter.


According to Coleen Rowley, Most Americans still do not connect the dots that the increasing violence occurring domestically: mass shootings, ‘active shooters,’ hate crimes and acts of terror (which frankly all blur together) are not only blowback from but the natural result of a war culture that glorifies war and war violence in the form of violent movies,

video games, and military culture.” 

Rowley is a former FBI special agent and division counsel whose May 2002 memo to the FBI Director exposed some of the FBI’s pre-9/11 failures was named one of TIME magazine’s “Persons of the Year” in 2002.
