Averted: The UK Shooter Plot - Uncovering a Thwarted Massacre S4E49 This episode of 'Stop the Killing' features guest journalist and podcaster Robert Murphy, who dives into the story of a thwarted shooting plot in the UK. The tale involves a man of low intelligence with an obsession for weapons, who had been plotting a massive attack but was caught before he could carry out his plans. Thanks to meticulous planning and online purchases, this individual amassed a do-it-yourself arsenal, raising flags that led to his arrest. Police found a 'revenge document' outlining detailed plans for attacks on schools, police headquarters, and individuals who had wronged him. Despite his claims of fantasy, the severity and specificity of his plans pointed to a serious intent. The episode highlights the importance of monitoring and intelligence in preventing such plots and raises questions about gun culture and the glorification of guns.

FROM MASS SHOOTING TO MASS DECEPTION  The Case of Alex Jones and the Sandy Hook Families The podcast episode delves into the continuation of the legal battle between the Sandy Hook families and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who spread false theories that the horrific Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax. Despite being sued and ordered to pay a massive $1.5 billion judgment by the court, Jones has avoided this payment using bankruptcy claims and continues to generate significant wealth through his media company. The Sandy Hook families have since reduced their demand to $85 million, but Jones still refuses to pay, all while continuing to earn substantially from his conspiracy theory-based venture. The episode explores the manipulation and harm caused by Jones' actions and the distressing reality of these families who have been relentlessly harassed and lied about for a decade.

RAGE, GUNS AND TRAGEDY Unraveling the Complexity of Gun Violence: The Case of a Louisville Bank Shooting In this episode of Stop the Killing, we discuss a horrific case of a shooting that occurred in a Louisville, Kentucky bank. The shooter, a 25-year-old bank employee struggling with depression, shot five coworkers and a freshly graduated police officer before being killed. What sets this case apart is the shooter's clear objection to US gun laws and his intention to demonstrate how easy it was for someone with mental health issues to purchase an assault-style weapon. Highlighting the case's shocking and uniquely confounding details, we contemplate the difficulty of identifying potential shooters and emphasize the need for continued awareness and vigilance. 01:59 The Shooter's Profile and Motivation 02:16 The Tragic Event: A Detailed Account 03:01 The Unexpected Twist: Shooter's Note 04:16 The Role of Mental Health and Medication 05:29 The Family's Perspective and Response 07:11 The Warning Signs and the Importance of Urgency 10:43 The Role of Leakage and the Importance of Reporting 18:23 The Shooter's Personal Struggles and Frustration with Gun Laws WANT THE VIDEOS HEAD TO YOUTUBE @sarahferrismedia  And if you are wanting AD FREE | EARLY ACCESS | BONUS CONTENT  HIT THE BANNER ON APPLE PODCASTS TO SUBSCRIBE OR SUPPORT US: Patreon.com/stopthekilling  Send us your Listener Questions for our Tuesday episodes  Message us on instagram :  @conmunitypodcast @stopthekillingstories And for all things Katherine Schweit including where you can purchase her book STOP THE KILLING: How to end the mass shooting crisis head to: www.katherineschweit.com SUPPORTING OUR SPONSORS, SUPPORTS THE PODCAST CRIMECON UK TICKETS HERE CRIMECON US TICKETS HERE DON’T forget to use DISCOUNT CODE “FERRIS”  BLENDJET Check out BlendJet: The original portable blender coupon: stk12 (case sensitive) custom URL: https://zen.ai/stk12   Go to blendjet.com and to save 12% use my special link, and the discount will be applied at checkout https://zen.ai/stk12 RESOURCES Stop the Bleed training FBI  RUN, HIDE, FIGHT This is a CONmunity Podcast Production on the Killer Podcasts Network Check out more: CONNING THE CON KLOOGHLESS - THE LONG CON GUILTY GREENIE THE BRAVERY ACADEMY Learn more about your ad choices.

TWISTED FAMILY SECRETS  The Groundbreaking Oxford School Shooting Case: Parental Role Reconsidered BONUS EPISODE  This episode with Katherine Schweit on the Stop the Killing podcast re-examines the Oxford High School shooting case in Michigan. Three years after the incident involving a 15-year-old boy who killed four classmates, the case remains significant due to the charges faced by the shooter's parents for involuntary manslaughter, a first in the United States. Easily remembered for the parents failing to take responsibility and optimal care in firearm management, the case asks challenging questions about parental responsibility. The trial of the mother has concluded with guilty verdicts for all charges, resulting in potential imprisonment for 60 years. The parents' lack of transparency and alleged aiding of their son made them appear as indirectly involved parties. The father’s trial will be the next event to watch out for and is anticipated to proceed with a different defensive strategy. With the prosecution's strategy already been public knowledge, their defense must work on something alternative yet convincing. Beyond the specifics of the case, the episode delves into evident shifts in perspectives regarding parental negligence and culpability in such incidents, suggesting that prosecutors and district attorneys might now look more critically at higher charges for parents and guardians in similar future situations.
