Study: 'Crazed gunman' stigma increases risk of suicide

User avatar

A new study published by the country’s #1 ranked school of clinical psychology, UCLA’s Dept. of Psychology, suggests a link between the high rate of suicide among alleged rampaging mass murderers and the stigma of being labeled, by mass media outlets, as a “crazed gunman”.

The study shows that close to 100% of those who are labeled as a “crazed gunman” commit suicide within the first 24 hours after their alleged rampage and, very often, within the first 60 seconds. Some, it is suggested, commit “suicide by cop” in inexplicable and “out-of-character” gun battles with law enforcement.

The study suggests that fear of being stigmatized leads many of these alleged felons to end their own lives before they have the opportunity to prove their innocence, leaving many questions unanswered and, sadly, ending what could have, otherwise, been healthy and productive lives.

A tragic aspect of labeling people with derogatory epithets is that it often leads those labeled into a cycle of self-destructive behavior, the study says, concluding that if we as a society could arrest this tendency to sensationalize the actions of those who tend to be depressed and under extremely stressful conditions, more lives could be saved and healing could take place.

“I believe that a successful campaign to end the unnecessary labeling and stigmatizing of these very unhappy people could be a win for all involved. We don’t need more victims of tragic circumstances," said the Clinical Psychology Area Chair. "When one delves into the history of alleged mass murderers, one discovers that those not labeled as 'crazed' are less likely to commit suicide and are, in fact, quite likely to perform a community service that benefits their nation and the greater good. Joseph Stalin is a case in point.

"If society could harness the passion that these individuals display, there may be incalculable benefits to all humanity."

Stalin's endearing nickname was Papa Joe. Why don't we call our ruler Papa Barry?

What is the politically correct nomenclature for "crazed gunman"? The word "undocumented"seems to be the only PC word that is still acceptable. Shall we say undocumented executioners? Undocumented killers? Undocumented life-enders?

Crazed gunman?

Always look to the words of Dear Leader (PBUH) who indirectly assigned the nomenclature of "bitter clinger..."

It seems that there are a plethora of PC terms that can be used to describe "crazed gunmen" without depressing them to the point of suicide. PC saves lives. #CrazedGunmenLivesMatter#GayMurdererLivesMatter#UnhingedJournalistLivesMatter

If there are so many PC terms why don't you use them? I specifically cite the "Unhinged Journalist" bit; It is well known throughout the Ivy-League campuses that "unhinged" is not PC. However, the term "Still In the hardware store in the section where they sell doors" is PC.

"Freelance post tri-mester family planning specialist" is the correct term, I believe.

I'm very humbled by the realization that Comrade Red Square has promoted this article to the Mother Page!

This is better than a Nobbled Peace prize!

If I had the authority, I'd increase the beet vodka rations for all!

All glory to the Mother of all Pages (we're not talking about page boys, by the way).

I would like to thank everybody who contributed to the publishing and editing of this article. It could not have happened without me...............(or the good comrade Red Square).

What a revelation Kaptain KK! The Ministry of Love will have to revise the template for our risk assessment. 1) Have you been thinking about suicide? 2) Have you been thinking about ways you could kill yourself? 3) Have you sensessly knocked off 1 or more people by gunshot in the last 24 hours?

I'd have to say Uncle Joe. A self-inflicted gun shot wound to the head tends to mess up the aesthetics of a well tailored hat.

Even Deer Leeder cannot resist the temptation of allowing the Chinese to pay his way... Just put it on the American taxpayers' tab.

I've been looking for the "half crazed gunman" study to see if the recipients of the term are semi-well adjusted individuals but haven't been able to find much.

Those people are known as "bitter clingers", comrade and should be eliminated, for The Children™. There's no need to try and understand them. We already know that they are a threat to The Party™.

"half-crazed"

Therein lies the problem...nobody only half qualified should have a gun.

 

 

User avatar
Nobody only half qualified should run a country, either, but Affirmative Action™ is an effective policy and should never be questioned, comrade.

I denounce the implicit negativity shown here in the pervasive (100%!!) use of the prefix "un". It is exactly this sort of milli-, micro-, and nanoagression, that keeps people down and drives perfectly sensible killers to suicide.

We must strive to identify, what the people have, rather than accentuate, what they are lacking.

Good call Comrade Mi. The body-count at some of these mass shootings could certainly be reduced by a factor of one if we could somehow make these killers feel more justified. You are so right Comrade, we always say: "If it would save even just one life (that of the killer in this case), it would be worth doing." Dear Leader needs to take up this executive order immediately as an emergency life-saving measure.

Blame Komrade Punk, all I was doing was conforming to what my fellow Komrade already started. I was just doing what my obedience training taught me.
