Public awareness has been hampered by attempts to attack schools

Cautious community members are on the lookout for warning signs from potential attackers contributing to the massive school invasion between 2006 and 2018


The National Secret Service of the Secret Service has investigated 67 cases where current or former students and others plan to commit violence against schools, staff or at least one student between 2006 and 2018 but were suspended before injuring anyone.

In all cases of a traumatic event, a member of the public - such as a classmate, school or parent - has contributed to preventing the attack.

The report revealed a shocking incident when a mother found the kitchen knives missing and contacted her son's school. When the child was removed from the classroom, knives, a gun and more than 460 rounds of ammunition were found in the child's bag. He was only 11 years old.

Most of the potential attackers show up in relation to the apparent behavior during the attack, indicating a list of times when authorities or parents can intervene. About two thirds of the attackers experienced emotional and psychological symptoms such as depression, suicidal thoughts, suicidal thoughts, or anger. Some students have expressed an interest in violence or researched previous attacks such as Columbine, a Oklahoma City bombing, or a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. A few students seemed to be drawn to the White Empire.

It is estimated that 85% of conspirators have engaged in "weapons-related planning," which may involve researching weapons or taking steps to obtain them, such as obtaining a firearm or building a bomb. Potential school invaders often plan their actions in detail and some of them choose the clothing or music they hope to play during the event.

The report also highlights a disturbing trend: Often, conspirators were not deterred by access to firearms for a number of reasons including being old enough to buy guns legally, knowing the code in a safe place with guns inside, or parents simply allowing students access to firearms inside the home.

NTAC was launched in 1998 using the Secret Service's technology to detect danger in other areas of targeted violence, and the themes highlighted in the report are also reflected in other recent shootings that focused on national mobilization and the availability of weapons, even though they did not have a nexus in schools.

These were the victims of a shooting at a Boulder restaurant

Ahmad Al Aliwi's brother Alissa - a man accused of shooting dead 10 people at a King Soopers store in Boulder, Colorado, on March 22 - told CNN that Alissa may have been suffering from a mental illness. Ali Aliwi Alissa said that in high school bullying schools they made fun of Alissa's name and that she was a Muslim and that could contribute to her becoming a "civil warrior".

Alissa had turned into a "cross" around 2014, believing she was being followed and chased, according to her brother. On one occasion, the young man covered the computer with a camera, so to speak, said the brother, who lives with Alissa.

Like others in the Secret Service report, Alissa was affected by the discovery of the guns. According to police, Alissa officially bought on March 16 a firearm similar to the AR-15 which was confirmed by a major legal source in the incident.

According to the warrant, the woman, known as the suspect's daughter-in-law, "said (Ahmad Al Aliwi) Alissa was seen playing with a gun she thought was like a 'gun' about two days ago. that the bullet was attached to the gun and he was playing with it. "

In 2019 Colorado passed a "red flag" law that allowed family members or other family members to request an interim order that, if deemed appropriate, would protect a person from buying or carrying a firearm for 364 days. The law enforcement did not identify anyone from Alissa's family or family who considered or requested such action under the new law, nor did they indicate that it would be authorized.

Encouragingly, public monitoring has stopped what is likely to be a similar incident, this time in Georgia.

An Instacart shopper who entered a bathroom at a supermarket in Atlanta this week told police he had seen a gun in style AR-15 and heard he believed it was the sound of someone loading guns into a bathroom.

When police arrived at the scene, they found a 22-year-old man with six loaded pistols of unequal size.

Police did not immediately say what the man was planning to do with the weapons, although he is now facing a series of charges.
