Were the Dog Days of August That Bad for Active Shooters?

Actually, it wasn’t…mainly because the media was more concerned with the coronavirus variant, Afghanistan, and weather across the country, increasing flooding in Arizona, wild fires throughout California, & hurricanes along the southern borders. Therefore, there were few reports of WPV, of the many & varied forms, in C-Stores and assaults inside other in businesses or schools. If they occurred, then I was never notified of the fact.
I have no doubts that there were innumerable threats, shootings, assaults, and all of the other items of workplace/school violence across the country. They just aren’t reported here in Phoenix. Even threats and other types of violence are rarely reported on here for one reason or another. It could be that the media, and the public, have become over-exposed and unwilling to listen (remember the attention span of less than a goldfish) to such news and the ratings don’t handle it anymore. But without further ado…
