Violent Crime and Racial Motivations

Article here. Excerpt:

'In four events over the last year, at least 26 people were killed and at least 70 injured in events some have linked to racist motivations. Payton Gendron, Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, Frank James, and Darrell Brooks Jr. have been accused and/or already prosecuted for the killing and injuring of innocent people.

As the nation mourns another mass shooting in the city of Buffalo, the media and policy makers need to proceed with a certain caution and avoid inciting the type of responses that only fires-up political rhetoric and incites further violence instead of encouraging a level-headed focus on mental health.

While many are looking at racially motivated reasons for the rampages by Gendron in Buffalo (NY), Al Aliwi Alissa in Boulder, Colorado, James in New York City, and Brooks Jr. in Waukesha, Wisconsin, too few are spending time in sustained talks and actions regarding the mental illness associated with these crises.'
