Sierra Vista in Cochise County Arizona: Illegal immigrants and drug smugglers are devastating the area and many longtime residents live in fear

Arizona Border Ranchers Live in Fear as Illegal Immigration Crisis Worsens
MAY 17, 2018
More than half a million illegal immigrants of several dozen nationalities have been apprehended on John Ladd’s sprawling cattle ranch in southeastern Arizona. Ladd has also found 14 dead bodies on his 16,500-acre farm, which has been in his family for well over a century and sits between the Mexican border and historic State Route 92. The property shares a 10 ½-mile border with Mexico, making it a popular route for human and drug smugglers evading a meager force of Border Patrol agents in the mountainous region. “As big as that number sounds, many more got away,” said National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd of the hundreds of thousands arrested on Ladd’s parcel. Judd spent a chunk of his decades-long career with the agency patrolling the area and he knows it well. “It’s gotten more violent. It’s gotten worse.”

As part of an ongoing investigation into the critical security issues created by the famously porous southern border, Judicial Watch visited frustrated ranchers and residents in Sierra Vista, a Cochise County town located 75 miles southeast of Tucson with a population of around 44,000. The town sits in the picturesque Sonoran Desert and is surrounded by the scenic Huachuca Mountains. Illegal immigrants and drug smugglers are devastating the area and many longtime residents live in fear. Some are too scared to enjoy a simple pastime—horseback riding on their own land. “I can’t guarantee there’s not a dead body somewhere in my ranch right now,” said Ladd pointing to his property as he stood in front of the U.S. government’s border fence, an area known as the “shit ditch” because illegal immigrants use it as a toilet and trash. Sporting a thick gray mustache and a dapper cowboy hat, Ladd said 200 to 300 illegal aliens are caught daily passing through his property. “We don’t have any control of the border,” he said. “I see it every day.”

One of the most significant discoveries in the history of the world, scientifically verified and authenticated

WND EXCLUSIVE

'PETER IS HERE': UNTOLD STORY OF ASTONISHING SEARCH FOR THE APOSTLE

Why few know of Texas oilman, agnostic archaeologist and historic find


It’s arguably one of the most significant discoveries in the history of the world, accomplished by an improbable collection of characters through a complex series of improbable developments.
Yet few are aware of the find – for reasons that become evident as the saga is told – and even fewer know the whole story and the threads the players wove into the events of World War II and their influence on its outcome.
The discovery was the bones of the Apostle Peter, a scientifically verified find that was authenticated only recently under the leadership of Popes Benedict and Francis. The search also uncovered startling new evidence – hidden for nearly two millennia – of a thriving Christian community rooted in belief in the divinity of Jesus Christ at a time of intense Roman persecution.
The storyteller, in the newly released book “The Fisherman’s Tomb,” is perhaps as improbable as the story. Yet, like the characters, perfectly positioned.
John O’Neill is known as the face of the Vietnam swift boat veterans who many believe prevented John Kerry from being elected president of the United States in 2004. (O’Neill and the more than 200 veterans who came forward still stand by their story despite the establishment media’s boilerplate dismissal of “discredited claims.”)
O’Neill, a retired Houston lawyer, was co-author of the New York Times bestseller that rocked the 2004 election, “Unfit for Command,” the bible of the campaign of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, and “The Fisherman’s Tomb,” is his first book since then.
This time, amid a cynical culture that disregards the claims of Christianity as myth, he endeavors to set the record straight and tell for the first time the whole truth about the 75-year search for Peter.
A skeptic himself by nature, O’Neill makes the case in a well-written, engaging, novelistic fashion, undergirded by his lawyerly reliance on reason and verifiable evidence.
It’s the story of a risky, top-secret endeavor launched in 1942 that never could have been accomplished without the help of a humble, enormously wealthy and generous Texas oilman whose lifelong insistence on anonymity and his belief that he was a partner with God in his vocation made him a perfect accomplice.

BAGHDAD — Five senior Islamic State officials have been captured, including a top aide to the group’s leader, in a complex cross-border sting carried out by Iraqi and American intelligence, two Iraqi officials said Wednesday.

The three-month operation, which tracked a group of senior Islamic State leaders who had been hiding in Syria and Turkey, represents a significant intelligence victory for the American-led coalition fighting the extremist group and underscores the strengthening relationship between Washington and Baghdad.

"Two hundred years ago Marx was born. He belongs in a small but important category: people who should never have existed."

For those who forgot, or never learned, communism’s toll, both Death by Governmentby R.J. Rummel and The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression, with several authors, are essential reading. The numbers are grotesque, horrifying, unbelievable.The Black Bookfigures 85 to 100 million victims. Estimates vary widely among researchers and we will never know for sure. However, in raw numbers Adolf Hitler was only the third most prolific murderer, though the Holocaust should be recognized as a unique monstrosity. Debates over deaths that were intended versus those that merely proved inevitable when moronic, all-powerful leaders unleashed bizarre social engineering projects ignore the essential point: both forms of killing were natural outgrowths, albeit extreme, of the philosophy developed by Marx, of course aided and supplemented by others.

The Communist movement that is sweeping through America by infiltrating our educational system:



Mr Caputo did something very unusual yesterday. He named names.


The Process is the Punishment (As Always)

by Mark Steyn
Steyn on America

There have been exciting developments in the "Russia investigation". There always are, because that is the nature of open-ended money-no-object investigations. But, to me, the most interesting development was the testimony of Michael Caputo, who appeared just before me on Tucker Carlson's show last night. Mr Caputo was, briefly, a very minor Trump campaign aide - and so his life has been destroyed. As he told the Senate Intelligence Committee yesterday:
In 2009, my wife and I moved to my hometown of East Aurora, New York to have a family. Making far less money back home, we had a far better quality of life. That is, until the Trump-Russia narrative took off. Today, I can't possibly pay the attendant legal costs and live near my aging father, raising my kids where I grew up.
Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia are costing my family a great deal of money – more than $125,000 – and making a visceral impact on my children.
That's chump change for most senators and their vast entourages - and barely a rounding error in most of the budgets they approve. It's also considerably less than, say, my own legal bills after the scofflaws at CRTV broke my contract and put me through a year of "binding arbitration" that Cary Katz and his sleazy business partners ("Governor" Pete Wilson of California, etc) are now refusing to be bound by (having lost the case). But, for most Americans, 125 grand in legal bills for a case you're not even a party to is a big chunk of change.
And somewhere or other is a guy for whom blowing, say, 75 grand on lawyers is catastrophic, and they're trying to turn him to sell-out Caputo so they can turn Caputo to sell-out whoever's next up the chain. And they've got all the time in the world to bleed you dry.
Mr Caputo did something very unusual yesterday. He named names - or at least one name, from the Gulf Emir-sized retinue that attends each senator:

‘She has a design background:’ First lady Melania Trump prepares to host state dinner

A beautiful article which lets you in on some of the reasons why our First Lady is the perfect person to be in charge of something like this.
State dinners, with all their protocol and symbolism, are the highest-profile entertaining any White House can do, and for Melania Trump, a state dinner is a chance to showcase her strengths, said Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s spokeswoman.

“Remember, she has a design background,” Grisham said, referencing Trump’s career as a fashion model and as owner of her namesake jewelry line.

“She has amazing taste, which makes things very, very easy,” added social secretary Rickie Niceta.
And, as for the differences between Melania and the previous first lady:
Trump chose to hold the dinner for the French dignitaries in the State Room, the smallest of the White House venues used for such events. The guest list is a modest 130 to 150, making for a more intimate soiree than many state dinners in previous administrations. (For example, the Obamas’ last state dinner, for Italy, packed nearly 400 guests into a tent on the South Lawn.)

It’s a reflection of one of the first lady’s principles for entertaining, aides said. Trump believes “it should never be too crowded,” Niceta said. “You should be able to move; you should be able to see the White House and feel special that you’re here.”
Each to his own! Some people believe in elegance and intimacy...others just shove as many people as they can fit into a big tent.

DOWNLOAD Memoirs of a Superfluous Man - MISES INSTITUTE
Albert Jay Nock, perhaps the most brilliant American essayist of the 20th century, and certainly among its most important libertarian thinkers, set out to write his autobiography but he ended up doing much more. He presents here a full theory of society, state, economy, and culture, and does so almost inadvertently.

His stories, lessons, observations, and conclusions pack a very powerful punch, so much so that anyone who takes time to read carefully cannot but end up changed in intellectual outlook. One feels that one has been let in a private club of people who see more deeply than others. This is truly an American classic.

Newsmax's Top 25 Conservative Documentaries of All Time

While conservative documentaries are often panned by Hollywood critics and seldom garner film festival awards, many draw impressive crowds to theaters, rack up eye-popping box office totals, and have exerted a significant impact on American culture and politics.

For instance, film industry experts say “2016: Obama’s America,” “The Clinton Chronicles,” and “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” helped lay the groundwork for the election of Donald Trump as president and other conservatives.

“Some of these movies have actually changed the political landscape,” says Dr. Ted Baehr, a media critic and publisher and editor-in-chief of Movieguide, a website and journal that evaluates films and television programs from a conservative Christian perspective.

New York Times best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza says his 2012 film “2016: Obama’s America” didn’t keep voters from electing Barack Obama as president, but his 2016 film “Hillary’s America” seemed to have more of an impact.

“Arguably my later film ‘Hillary’s America’ had more impact in actually shaping the narrative and the outcome of an election,” D’Souza told Newsmax. “'2016' was my first documentary. I’ve now done three of them. In fact, I have a new one (tentatively titled ‘Death of a Nation’) coming out this summer, but I think the Hillary movie may have had more electoral impact, although the Obama movie I think has had a greater impact in shaping how Obama is seen by the population at large and perhaps also by history.”

Now, to help readers choose some of the best conservative documentaries, Newsmax has compiled a list of the top 25 conservative documentaries of all time. The criteria followed were simple: The films that generated the highest box office totals and made a “significant impact.”

In selecting the films, Newsmax sought to pick the documentaries by cross-referencing data on Box Office Mojo with the Internet Movie Database as well as information provided by filmmakers and film industry experts.

The second criterion — films that made a “significant impact” — is a more subjective one based on knowledge of conservative documentaries and the film industry.

Given thousands of documentary films made over the decades, undoubtedly some fine films were left out, but this list will give Newsmax readers a discerning guide to the highest-grossing and most impactful conservative documentaries.

Without further ado, here’s how Newsmax, in collaboration with author Troy Anderson, ranked the top 25 conservative documentaries of all time:

THE COMPLETE OBAMA TIMELINE

The Complete Obama Timeline is a 30-volume set of books covering the life of Barack Obama, from his birth in 1961 to his last day in the Oval Office. Although this Timeline is primarily about Barack Obama, it is also about how the nation has changed dramatically since the 1960s. In following the rise of Obama’s political career one can also observe the decline of the United States. The purpose of this Timeline is two-fold: to relate the story of Obama and to explain how and why he came to power. It will take the nation many years to recover from the devastating actions of Obama and his fellow radicals. It will take even longer if few understand how it all happened. This Timeline is intended to help people understand.

The untold story of the HIV retrovirus

My name is Clark Baker and I'm an investigator by profession (LAPD 1980-2000 and PI 1997-current). It's a long story, but I was hired in 2008 to investigate claims against UC Berkeley Prof. Peter Duesberg, who was admitted into the National Academy of Sciences after mapping the retrovirus genome during the 1970s. (HIV is a retrovirus) You can look up the allegations, but I distilled my inquiry into this one question: WHEN, WHERE, WHY, WHAT, and WHO proved that HIV 1) attacks cells and 2) causes AIDS? When I didn't get a straight answer from the NIH and CDC, I set out to compel answers.

By 2009, 38 states had laws that made it a crime to expose victims to HIV without informing them. Hundreds of Americans have been criminally charged and several are serving life sentences. As new defendants were charged, they provided me with a venue to compel infectious disease (ID) experts to testify under oath about the issues that the NIH and CDC refused to discuss.

I formed a team that included an MD, an attorney (w/5 years of post-doctoral human biology), and two pharmaceutical chemists - including the patent holder of the viral load test.

When I examined medical records, it became clear that none of the MDs had ever diagnosed their patients properly. Patients were typically asymptomatic and the docs relied entirely on HIV tests that admittedly (in the package insert) do not detect HIV. During cross-examinations, top ID experts admitted in trial and depositions that they knew little about the testing, diagnosis, and treatment of HIV. 

After we prevailed in several dozen cases, we began to use the electron microscopy (EM) lab at U. Mass to see if HIV could be seen in blood samples. Despite high "viral load" counts, we found NOTHING with EM. When Walter Reed Army Hospital (which partners with Big Pharma) declared that HIV cannot be seen in human blood, I drew 20ml from my arm and spiked it with cultured HIV from the NIH. According to the head of the EM lab, he'd photographed HIV hundreds of times since the 1980s but this was the first time he actually observed HIV in human blood. Walter Reed got pissed and accused me of using EM for "diagnostic purposes". I countered that, as a licensed private investigator, I am permitted to use any optical devices of my choosing to establish whether evidence (including retroviruses) is present or not.

With that, Walter Reed falsely claimed that I was using a non-accredited lab (I'm allowed to) to "diagnose" our criminal defendants. The prosecutor used their affidavit to threaten U. Mass with a criminal investigation and the potential loss of the $150 million that U. Mass receives annually in NIH funding. With that, prosecutors successfully threatened and silenced our EM expert. We won that case anyway.

We eventually won a landmark case US v. Gutierrez and changed the definition of assault with a deadly weapon with regard to HIV, which began the end of all criminal HIV cases across the US.

After this nine-year investigation, my partner and I tried to get EM labs to assist us with additional virology investigations. EVERY university lab across the US refused. We eventually set up labs at incubators in California and NC, but before we could start our operations, the landlords evicted us with no explanation.

It is now my belief that much of virology is a complete scam - a pseudoscientific pretext to support the billion vaccine and AIDS, HPV and HCV industries. With the use of EM, I expect to prove that scary pathogens like Ebola and HPV are non-pathogenic pretexts that cannot stand up to Koch's postulates - which is why documents that prove that bugs like HPV and HCV are harmless. All of this may seem academic, except when you consider that innocent men and women continue to serve time for a disease they never had, and millions of people around the world are being unnecessarily vaccinated and treated for diseases they never had.

Based on our work, I commissioned my former partner, Nancy Banks MD to write a book about our discoveries related to cancer and immune-deficiency diseases. 


https://www.amazon.com/SLOW-DEATH-AIDS.../dp/1524544221 

So you must understand that your industry has been lying for decades about much of what you think you know. Virology and infectious disease is largely an ideology, and the practitioners are too busy and invested in the ideology to share the intellectual curiosity that influenced my investigation and success, which conflicts directly with the enforced "scientific consensus" that your industry relies on.


“(T)he work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus… There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.”
- Michael Crichton MD

I was tasked to investigate the controversy between Duesberg and the medical establishment. Eight years later (2015) I had confirmed all of Duesberg's skepticism and refuted virtually ALL of the establishment's position.

Duesberg's book is probably still the best indictment of HIV. I simply added to his position by forcing government experts to testify and winning 50+ criminal, civil, and military cases proving it.

CLARK BAKER (LAPD) & THE WAR ON DRUGS

I was part of the failed "War on Drugs" and made 2500+ arrests during the 1980s that saved taxpayers ~$160 million in potential property losses and law enforcement. Despite that, I knew that its prosecution was folly.

To fix this requires a completely different strategy that is based on two FACTS:

1) Most crime is drug-related and;

2) Rehabilitation requires a sincere desire to change. (Most addicts don't want to.)

I recommend a state-run program that sends bonafide criminal-addicts to secure rehabilitation centers (closed military bases are great venues). These centers would offer two specific services:

* The “rehab” wing would offer the best rehabilitation techniques and services known in the Western World, along with out-patient support, job training, and counseling. If an addict completes the program and pisses clean for nine months he/she can be released.

* The "addict" wing would offer pharmaceutical doses of the drug of choice - cocaine, meth, alcohol, cannabis, opiates, mushrooms, LSD etc. - under the care of medical practitioners. In this environment, prostitutes won’t turn tricks and burglars and robbers won’t steal to score adulterated street drugs. Addicts in that wing could stay indefinitely and be released to the Rehab-wing for treatment upon request.

In this way, street drug sales would plummet. After all, why would anyone buy adulterated street drugs when they could acquire pharmaceutical doses of their favorite drug in a secure environment? With most drug-addicted criminals no longer committing crime to score drugs, crime would plummet across the cities and states that utilized the program. And while the initial costs would be high, those costs would be gradually offset as drug-related prisoners transferred from jails and prisons to these rehab centers. As the addict-population rises, the jail populations would shrink.

I also support the idea that anyone can grow and consume any illicit drug they produce personally, but that any commercial sale of their products would result in incarceration and asset forfeiture. Drug-related crime like DUI and manslaughter would result in a prison sentence, followed by the program.

The biggest benefit is that these centers would segregate drug users from the rest of society at the discretion of the addicts themselves - a moral and constitutional solution. I pitched this to Congress years ago. I suspect that law enforcement and prison unions don’t want to jeopardize the status quo. BTW... If you wonder how I calculated my personal $160 million contribution to the LA economy, here it is:

Between 1985-1989, I averaged 4.5 §11550 H&S arrests a day, 22 each week, or 900 addicts a year (assuming 40 weeks a year on the street). During that 48-month period, I made 2,500+ §11550 arrests.

The typical drug addict commits at least five property crimes each day to support their addictions. Their crimes (burglary, robbery, shoplift, B/TFMV, and 484) are not dollar for dollar: That is, the replacement cost for a watch, TV, purse, computer, or cell phone usually costs more than fees paid by a fence or insurance settlement. Addicts might get $100 for a $2000 watch. For computational ease, let’s assume that each crime CONSERVATIVELY represents an average $50 loss to victims. Addicts who commit five crimes a day represent a minimum property loss of $250 (five crimes X $50).

I didn’t include the repair costs of a broken door or window, or the health costs from being attacked by robbers, the injuries, hospitalization, lost work, psychological trauma, and so forth, nor will I include the costs for addict "rehabilitation", incarceration, or international drug interdiction efforts.

By applying these numbers we can accept that by arresting one addict who spends 180 days in jail, I effectively prevented 900 crimes (five crimes X 180 days) and the property loss of $45,000 ($50 X 900 crimes).

If we assume a minimum replacement cost of $50 per stolen item (it is far greater), we can estimate another $45,000, bringing the total cost savings to victims (and their insurers) at $90,000 during 180 days of incarceration.

Back then, taxpayers spent at least $300 for police to investigate these crimes, which includes fuel, vehicle maintenance, uniform and equipment wear and tear; administrative costs, training, and follow-up investigations and prosecution. Not every crime is reported to police, so if we assume that 200 of those 900 crimes are reported, the LAPD spent $60,000 to investigate those 200 crimes.

This means that if one addict is sentenced to 180 days in jail, LA residents and taxpayers will save at least $210,000 in property loss and investigative costs.

If we apply these numbers to the 2500+ addicts I arrested, we can roughly estimate that my efforts alone saved LA residents and taxpayers at least $200 MILLION in lost property and tax revenues. I wasn't alone - most patrol divisions deployed hype cars.

I typically released arrestees without bail on their "own recognizance" (OR) who provided urine samples and good ID (most did). I couldn't order them to provide a urine sample, so I offered the OR if they provided good ID and urine that would 1) confirm their identity and 2) obtain urine that would prove the crime.

They almost never appeared in court and the judge often issued a high-bail warrant for their arrest ($50-$100K) so they couldn't bail out. As a result, patrol officers who observed the suspect but didn't have enough evidence or probable cause to arrest was relieved to learn that they could arrest the suspect on outstanding warrants. At that time, sentencing guidelines prevented judges and sheriffs from releasing the suspects in less than 180 days.

Unfortunately, §11550 is no longer enforced because Marxist judges and legislators view property crime as a form of "wealth redistribution" under the pretext of compassion - that these are "non-violent crimes" that are perpetrated by the poor and sick who deserve our help and compassion.

Remember all the times Obama chanted "this is not who we are" ?

Well, this is who he thought we were:
There's a big mystery at the heart of Barack Obama's Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance. What was Barack Obama doing seeking out Marxist professors in college? Why did Obama choose a Communist Party USA member as his socio- political counselor in high school? Why was he spending his time studying neocolonialism and the writings of Frantz Fanon, the pro-violence author of "the Communist Manifesto of neocolonialsm", in college? Why did he take time out from his studies at Columbia to attend socialist conferences at Cooper Union?

[snip]

I have a copy of Barack Obama's paper here in my hand, obtained from the stacks at UCLA. The paper is as describe by Odhiambo and Cohen, a cutting attack from the left on Tom Mboya's historically important policy paper "African Socialism and Its Applicability to Planning in Kenya." The author is given as "Barak H. Obama" and his paper is titled "Problems Facing Our Socialism", published July, 1965 in the East African Journal, pp. 26-33.

If you want a scandal, and a cover-up that succeeded to a remarkable degree, look no further than Chappaquiddick

Worst case, Trump paid Stormy Daniels. But he didn’t kill her. That distinguishes him from the Liberal Lion of the Senate. If you want a scandal, and a cover-up that succeeded to a remarkable degree, look no further than Chappaquiddick. The Democratic Party conspired to cover up Ted Kennedy’s crime–manslaughter, in a particularly vile form–to preserve his political viability, at the cost of an innocent young woman’s life.

To this day, most people have no idea what the Chappaquiddick scandal was all about. That is how successful the Democrats’ cover-up has been. Most Americans assume that Kennedy was guilty of drunk driving and negligently causing the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. But the truth is much worse.

Even the New York Times is talking up the economy!!

The Economy Is Looking Awfully Strong
By Neil Irwin
March 9, 2018
There are 39 pages in the Labor Department’s February report on the employment situation in the United States, but they can be summed up in four words: The economy is humming.

The 313,000 jobs that the nation added in February are far more than are needed to keep up with population growth and continue a surprising burst of job creation to start the year. In the first two months of 2018, the economy has added an average of 276,000 jobs a month, a big step up from 182,000 on average in 2017.

This is not the kind of data you expect in an expansion that is nine years old, or out of a labor market that is already at full employment. It suggests that employers are filling jobs not merely from people they’ve poached from competitors, but also from more people who have entered the work force. And other data in the latest report matches that idea.

THE DRUGGING OF THE AMERICAN BOY

ESQUIRE:
By the time they reach high school, nearly 20 percent of all American boys will be diagnosed with ADHD. Millions of those boys will be prescribed a powerful stimulant to "normalize" them. A great many of those boys will suffer serious side effects from those drugs. The shocking truth is that many of those diagnoses are wrong, and that most of those boys are being drugged for no good reason—simply for being boys. It's time we recognize this as a crisis.

The CDC’s latest report on firearms might not make many gun control activists happy

Gun rights advocates have long defended their right to bear arms out of a need for self-defense. And now they have a new report from the Centers for Disease Control that says they make a darn good point.

The $10 million study commissioned by President Barack Obama as part of 23 executive orders he signed in January says “self-defense can be an important crime deterrent.”

“Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies,” the CDC study revealed.

The study, entitled “Priorities For Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence,” states that “violent crimes, including homicides specifically, have declined in the past five years,” but notes that “some firearm violence results in death, but most does not.”

The CDC report said that most incidents involving the use of a gun do not result in a fatality: “In 2010, incidents in the U.S. involving firearms injured or killed more than 105,000 Americans, of which there were twice as many nonfatal firearm-related injuries (73,505) than deaths.”

The White House commissioned the CDC to conduct research on the causes and prevention of gun violence. The White House believes research on gun violence is critical public health research that is important for Americans to understand, and not advocacy.

Schools are safer than they were in the 90s, and school shootings are not more common than they used to be, researchers say

The deadly school shooting this month in Parkland, Florida, has ignited national outrage and calls for action on gun reform. But while certain policies may help decrease gun violence in general, it’s unlikely that any of them will prevent mass school shootings, according to James Alan Fox, the Lipman Family Professor of Criminology, Law, and Public Policy at Northeastern.
