The Columbine High shooters caught on a security camera during their rampage.
The Columbine High shooters caught on a security camera during their rampage.

A school massacre is an incident of violence at a school involving at least one actual death.[citation needed] Unlike other forms of school violence, there is usually no single target. In some cases these events are perpetrated by students, while others have been committed by expelled students, alumni, or even total outsiders. In the Bath School disaster, the perpetrator was a member of the school board.

In the United States, one-on-one public school violence, such as beatings and stabbings, or violence related to gang activity, is more common in some densely populated, impoverished sections of cities. Student-perpetrated school massacres in North America most often occur in overwhelmingly white, middle class non-urban areas (i.e. small towns and suburbs). Several experts in child psychology, including Dr. Carl E. Drake, have stated that in some cases, the victims of the shootings are involved in bullying or other exclusionary acts towards the perpetrators, and that the perpetrators seemed to think this justified the act of murder. It has been suggested that Gangmembers be merged into this article or section. ... Bullying is the tormenting of others through verbal harassment, physical assault, or other more subtle methods of coercion such as manipulation. ...


Like terrorist attacks, school massacres are very traumatic; thus, they receive extensive media coverage and often result in nationwide changes of schools' policies concerning discipline and security.

 This article documents a current event.
Information may change rapidly as the event progresses.

Previously, the most widely publicized school massacre in the United States was the student-perpetrated Columbine High School massacre in the U.S. state of Colorado. This was due to both the sheer number of deaths compared to other student-perpetrated school shootings and the long-term planning of the attack. More recently, on April 16, 2007, 33 people were killed and at least 29 were injured at Virginia Tech in the Virginia Tech Massacre. Image File history File links Current_event_marker. ...

"Profiling" school shooters

A thorough study of all U.S. school shootings by the U.S. Secret Service warned against the belief that a certain "type" of student would be a perpetrator. Any "profile" would fit too many students to be useful and may not fit the potential perpetrators. Some lived with both parents in 'an ideal, All-American family.' Some were children of divorce, or lived in foster homes. A few were loners, but most had close friends. Image File history File links Gal09. ... Because of both the secrecy of secret services and the controversial nature of the issues involved, there is some difficulty in separating the definitions of secret service, secret police, intelligence agency etc. ...


While it may be simplistic to assume a straightforward "profile", the study did find certain similarities among the perpetrators. "The researchers found that killers do not 'snap'. They plan. They acquire weapons. They tell others what they are planning. These children take a long, considered, public path toward violence." [1] Princeton's Katherine Newman points out that, far from being "loners", the perpetrators are "joiners" whose attempts at social integration fail, that they let their thinking and even their plans be known, sometimes frequently over long periods of times. The shootings seem as though an attempt to adjust their social standing and image, from "loser" to "master of violence".


Instead of looking for traits, the Secret Service urges adults to ask about behavior: "What has this child said? Do they have grievances? What do their friends know? Do they have access to weapons? Are they depressed or despondent?"[1]


Epidemics

Evacuation of Columbine High School after the deadly shooting. This incident inspired many plots, most of which were prevented

A secondary danger of school shootings is that, like youth suicide, they have a tendency to inspire "copycat" incidents or even epidemics of the same behavior. These copycat effect events mirror the methods, victims, locations, and type of shooter from one incident to the next, based upon being spread by graphic media attention, especially in the age of wall-to-wall cable news coverage. After the Columbine massacre, for example, a number of American and Canadian high school students plotted "Columbine-like" attacks; the vast majority of these plots were "telegraphed" to others, uncovered, led to the plotters being arrested or being helped with mental health services. Of those attempted, almost all were foiled. The Red Lake High School massacre in 2005 (Red Lake, Minnesota) was a notable exception, copying the element of a gunman in a black trench coat.

Although Columbine prompted a number of shooting plots, for a long time, it appeared most deadly school shootings took place between 1996 and 1998. The media's interest in the events of 9/11 caused a dip in media interest until late in 2002 when international incidents caused fatal school shootings to return as a social phenomenon. In the fall (autumn) of 2006, a "wave" of school shootings and attempted school shootings brought the issue back into the limelight. 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ... 1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean [1]. // Coated in ice, power and telephone lines sag and often break, resulting in power outages. ...

In contrast to Columbine, the 1927 Bath School disaster engendered no copycat attempts. Following the forty-five deaths that resulted from the Bath School disaster in Bath, Michigan, there was much less media reporting on the event and no legislative response on any level other than local legislation to appropriate small amounts of money for the victims' families.

Such films as Slaughter High and Battle Royale or shows like Buffy's School hard, while dealing with violence at or about schools, do not fit into this particular topic and have been left out.
