Suicidal Mass Murderers: A Criminological Study of Why They Kill | Security Management Review

Security Management Review of  Suicidal Mass Murderers: A Criminological Study of Why They Kill | Security Management




 April 16, 2007 is a day that the college of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and the rest of America will not soon forget. A lone gunman performed a double murder, then opened fire and killed 30 people at the college and wounded over half as many more faculty, and students then turned the gun on himself. Was Seung Hui Cho mentally ill or a monster?This book, written by John Liebert M.D.  and Richard Birnes J.D. is a candid look at how these people slip through the cracks of our mental health care system and commit heinous crimes such as the one studied here.  Suicidal Mass Murderers not only offers detail and insight into what happened, but thoughtful insight on how to deal with tragedies like this one, and preventative measures as well.  I have had many conversations with John Liebert, and his focus is on fixing the problems in our mental health care system, and the Security Management Review does it justice!
