Professor Brian Levin from the Cal State San Bernardino Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism says attacks often happen in clusters.
”In general, what all these people have is a desire for power and attention and some kind of legitimazation for grievances real or imagined.”
An Ohio man allegedly threatened to fire on a Jewish community center. A suspect in Florida is accused of trying to set a mass murder record. And a Connecticut man faces similar charges. Levin says all three were captured after tips.
”If you see something, say something. The police are now ready, I think more so than they have in years, to respond to possible threats in a quick way.”
