Here we provide an overview of generalized imitation and discuss how the way in which the media report a mass shooting can increase the likelihood of another shooting event. Also, we propose media reporting guidelines to minimize imitation and further decrease the likelihood of a mass shooting.
Recently a contagion effect, similar to a “copycat” effect, has been suggested in mass shootings. This effect suggests that behaviors can be “contagious” and spread across a population. In the example of mass shootings, a contagion effect would be said to exist if a single mass shooting incident increased the likelihood of other instances of mass shootings in the near future. Contagion has been documented across a variety of other behaviors, including airplane hijackings,2 smoking cessation,3 and binge eating,4 and has been well researched in relation to suicide.5,6 There is now evidence that when a mass shooting occurs, there is a temporary increase in the probability of another event within the next 13 days on average.7

It's just becoming harder seeing more anecdotal evidence pile up against Democrats, when supposedly, certain people can produce what would be the knock-out punch, but aren't producing it. None of them. None of it. Flynn hopping on the Patriot Mommies of America bandwagon, after never having told us where bodies are buried, got my goat earlier, and started me on the rant.
I am starting to think that if anything realistically gets done, it will be surgical and delicate and only partially effective. Q told us up front that a certain percentage of information would have to remain hidden. That might be the percentage that covers the big stuff. There may not be any knockout punches. Some admissions are too destructive to ever make.
We have to ask who would be getting knocked out. The FBI, the DOJ, our intelligence agencies, the Democratic Party, our government in general, the mainstream media, social media, our corporations, our educational institutions, Big Pharma, several past Presidents, the American election system, the Supreme Court, the Vatican, the reputation of the United States… It's both individuals and the whole system.
Who or what is not tainted? There has to be something left that at least appears to be clean to throw that knockout punch and deal with the aftermath. Otherwise, it’s just national suicide.
Think of it like a marriage. Small admissions sting a little; moderate admissions will really hurt. Huge admissions destroy the relationship beyond any recovery.
It’s one thing to tell your wife you had an affair. It’s another thing to admit you never loved her, you had two other wives the whole time, and you hired a hit-man to add her to the list of other people you’ve killed. There ain’t no going forward from that.
Until now, public knowledge of what the government put into those classified directives, which invoke emergency and wartime powers granted by Congress or otherwise claimed by presidents, has been limited to declassified descriptions of those developed in the early Cold War. In that era, they included steps like imposing martial law, rounding up people deemed dangerous and censoring news from abroad.
Republican members of the House of Representatives demanded information related to the finances of Hunter Biden and other members of the president's family in letters Wednesday to more than a dozen banks and the U.S. Treasury Department.
1/ This the only topic that currently matters with Sussmann..
1/ Joffe is a CHS with an assigned handler
2/ Joffe created DNS data
3/ Joffe contacts Sussmann to deliver data to the FBI he created. Going around his Handler.
4/ Joffe being the DNS expert. Is part of the "Review"
2/ Think this over. Joffe creates the data , Makes arrangements to get Sussmann to deliver it and hide his involvement.
Baker hands it to the CI division. And they begin a investigation. Which ends up with Joffe reviewing his own lies.
