Russian Roulette by Michael Isikoff

There will probably be another chapter or two by the time the paperback comes out. Which is another layer of disturbing on top of the layer cake of rage and disturbing shit that is this book. And I paid pretty close attention during the election.

Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
"Really just below a 4. Maybe 3.8. When is Goodreads going to let readers be more precise?
"Beautiful Ruins" has been on my radar for a long time. I knew that it had a connection to the making of "Cleopatra" in the early 60's, a scandal-and-disaster..." Read more of this review »
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
"First of all, I listened to the Audible version of this, which is read by Trevor Noah himself. I highly recommend it because it gets you past all the difficulties of name pronunciation. Noah's narration style is excellent, funny at times, but also..." Read more of this review »
Kristy Miller is 85% done with Russian Roulette: This is infuriating. And fucked up. Mostly infuriating.

Dave Cullen
“I’m often asked what made me spend a decade on Columbine. It was that day and those kids. I didn’t see it as a book then, but I knew I’d be with these kids a long time. Eventually, two questions drove me. The second was why. Why drove me nuts. But the question that started and sustained me was what would became of those two thousand kids.”
Dave Cullen, Columbine

Dave Cullen
“Columbine also changed police response to attacks. No more perimeters. A national task force was organized to develop a new plan. In 2003, it released “The Active Shooter Protocol.” The gist was simple: If the shooter seems active, storm the building. Move toward the sound of gunfire. Disregard even victims. There is one objective: Neutralize the shooters. Stop them or kill them.”
Dave Cullen, Columbine

Dave Cullen
“And we have obviously failed on guns. Victims have engaged the public, and polls consistently indicate that huge majorities, including gun owners, support commonsense steps. Dr. Ochberg is frustrated, too. “Good people have tried to do good things but no policy has been enacted to reduce access of military weapons to kids,” he said. “No leader has had the guts to take on the NRA.” Nor has its own membership.”
Dave Cullen, Columbine

Dave Cullen
“The officers knew they had a problem, and it was much worse than the Browns realized. Thirteen months before the massacre, Sheriff’s Investigators John Hicks and Mike Guerra had investigated one of the Browns’ complaints. They’d discovered substantial evidence that Eric was building pipe bombs. Guerra had considered it serious enough to draft an affidavit for a search warrant against the Harris home. For some reason, the warrant was never taken before a judge. Guerra’s affidavit was convincing. It spelled out all the key components: motive, means, and opportunity.”
Dave Cullen, Columbine

Dave Cullen
“The FBI and the Secret Service each published reports in the first three years, guiding faculty to identify serious threats. The central recommendations contradicted prevailing post-Columbine behavior. They said identifying outcasts as threats is not healthy. It demonizes innocent kids who are already struggling. It is also unproductive. Oddballs are not the problem. They do not fit the profile. There is no profile. All the recent school shooters shared exactly one trait: 100 percent male. (Since the study a few have been female.) Aside from personal experience, no other characteristic hit 50 percent, not even close. “There is no accurate or useful ‘profile’ of attackers,” the Secret Service said. Attackers came from all ethnic, economic, and social classes. The bulk came from solid two-parent homes. Most had no criminal record or history of violence. The two biggest myths were that shooters were loners and that they “snapped.” A staggering 93 percent planned their attack in advance. “The path toward violence is an evolutionary one, with signposts along the way,” the FBI report said.”
Dave Cullen, Columbine
