The Role of Online Social Media in Predicting and Interdicting Spree Violence
Duration: 100 minutes
Online social media is changing how people communicate and interact with
world around them. Increasingly, those contemplating engaging in acts of spree
violence express themselves in online social media. It is important for
investigators and analysts who conduct threat assessments to understand how this
expression plays a key role in predicting and interdicting violence. When there
are acts of spree violence, items of evidentiary value can now often be
recovered from online communities. This evidence can help to shed light on the
thought processes and motivations that led to the tipping point of violence.
This webinar will explore the interaction between social media and spree violence
through a historical examination of case studies ranging in time from 1927 to 2015.
Investigators and analysts, ranging from school resource officers to those who
strategically analyze the tipping points for radicalization, can benefit from this training.
