Here are the accumulated numbers of the incidents I collected in 2020. There aren’t as many as they are normally, but I have to attribute that to the number and length of lock-downs that we have experienced over the course of the year due to the pandemic.
Usually, there are more than 200 incidents with more than 200 killed and 300 wounded/injured in these numbers…still a far cry from the 15 million incidents that are reported every year, according to the University of South Florida in 2005.
The point remains, however, that WPV/SV can and will occur anywhere for any reason. Many of the incidents below are of upset customers at a gas station, fast food joint, or similar that begin to yell, scream, and then assault a clerk with a large cup of soda or hot French fries…may not be much of an assault but tell that to the one who it’s directed at.
This is why I crusade against WPV/SV, making it my life’s mission, to prevent these events. Psychological trauma can cause irreparable harm to a person, especially if they may be on the edge themselves. And as I said before, no one may know how fragile these people are, psychologically, until the moment of the incident, which of course can be with them in the direct line assault or just witnessing it.
One item, if you’ve read my writings for long, you’ll notice is that the number of states that had recorded numbers increased in 2020. Usually, it’s more than 20 states report no incident, and 30 or so that do. This year it’s less than 15 states reporting no incidents, and the remainder having at least one of them.
But, without further ado…
