After a mass shooting at a school—or any other location—we are left with so many questions: Why was this school targeted? Was there anything anyone could do to stop it? Were there any clues in the shooter’s behavior that might point to why they resorted to this type of violence?
Among those seeking answers are Jillian Peterson, PhD, a psychologist and professor of criminology and criminal justice at Hamline University, and James Densley, PhD, a sociologist and professor of criminal justice at Metropolitan State University. Together they run the Violence Project, a nonpartisan think tank dedicated to reducing violence in society and improving related policy and practice through research and analysis.
