An interesting perspective on violence from an infectious disease physician. Violence, if you had been living under a rock, is a dangerous epidemic in America. Locally, we had a 13 year old carrying a toy gun shot 7 times. He died. What a tragedy for his family and the family of that officer.
Schools are random targets of mass shootings. Workplaces. Where ever you go in America, the specter of random gun violence is around the corner. Why?
Gary Slutkin takes a look at this epidemic. Children shooting other children. Cops shooting citizens. Whatever the approach we’ve taken of late, it hasn’t been working. Behavior in America needs to change. I urge you to watch this video.
