#Spree Occurred In Late October #occurred in late October I enjoyed the fact that the author mentions the color of the leaves changing The author states that the paper mill was the main industry of the town Unlike many other cases the place of work ie the paper mill was not a toxic place to work although of course it had problems come to find out and wasn t as happy and pleasant as I was first lead to believe The author does state that Leo Held s boss was mean and even kicked one of the employees Everyone involved in the case admitted the boss was a mean person His boss was of course the first one to be shot The book is very straight forward Chapters mainly focus on individual people mostly survivors and witnesses and what they saw and think about the case It s very clear that this was a very *close community every one had some sort of connection with each other At around page 40 it became *community every one had some sort of connection with each other At around page 40 it became clear to me why Leo Held did what he did He never fit in in the community nor at work Now he did participate in community activities such as the local school board carpooling and hunting That in it s self does not really mean anything He most probably didn t Aristotle's Rhetoric: An Art of Character get along on the school board A survivor said her husband was on the board and would come home angry at Leo saying he always voted no on everything this would cause conflict His driving was reckless and soon everyone refused to drive with him Him hunting I assume it would of been the same every other social interactionhe s just there Just because your physically involved doesn t mean you are emotionally and socially involved So I would say Leo Held committed the massacre due to rejection along with feeling humiliated by his boss As the bookoes on it becomes even clear as to why he did what he did and the extent of the issues he was dealing with in terms of work and neighborsThere was speculation and still is apparently about who he shot and why It really doesn t make sense why he shot one Anthropology as Cultural Critique: An Experimental Moment in the Human Sciences guy in the leg foretting in his way while he shot another Anaphora and Conceptual Structure guy in the chest foretting in the way The book states these two victims are considered the accidental victim and incidental victim by many I would agree it doesn t make a lot of sense why one uy was shot in the leg to incapacitate while another he shot in the chest to kill Could be that he simply wasn t thinking and was a spur of the moment He simply he. New examination of the vicious crime spree of Leo Held in Lock Haven Pennsylvania on October 23 1967 Story of a uiet upstanding. .
Sued admitted after it was settled out of court that it had nothing to do with prozac and said it was the job In fact that is how pretty much everyone felt One of the investigators talking about the case years later said the company began to deterioate after the scumbag wall street take over and clearly implied that it was the company that caused Wesbecker to shoot the Place Up The Paper Mill Was *not That Bad But up The paper mill was *not that bad but did have issues at work He *that bad but Leo did have issues at work He had issues with many people in the communitySeveral people who knew Held said they were not surprised that Leo Held was the shooterThe uy who went into the building to help the doctor heard it was some other Betrayals guy named LeoHe said he instantly thought I doubt it Leo Held maybeGiven all the facts of the case it all makes sense Typical caseAfter background of Held the authorives context with the next chapter where he cites those who study mass murder and what they say about Leo Held and his similarities to other mass killers I found it interesting that my Betrayals: The Unpredictability of Human Relations go to experts James Fox and Jack Levin werent cited They are the criminologist who first studied it and published the first study of mass murder They are myo to experts and I agree 98% with them in terms of my own research For those who haven t really studied the topic who haven t done the research it s a very welcomed chapter It always kind of bothers me when I read a modern book about a mass shooting and the author does not put the crime in context of what we know about mass killings If your onna write #a true crime book about a mass murdershooter then you should provide context in terms of what we # true crime book about a mass murdershooter then you should provide context in terms of what we about the study of mass murdershooters Sure I own several 1970 1980 books about mass shooters and they don t do that but I can easily look past that because Fox and Levin didn t do their study until the early 80 s The research into the topic of mass murdershooters was not like it is now But if your book was written in the year 2009 or 2010 or 2019 then you sure as hell should do the research and talk about the research that has been done to provide context motive and the killer s place in terms of other cases Yes as someone who has studied it it aint onna be news to me I ve heard it all before but for context historical and academic purposes it should be included It then moves on again to some of the aftermathA pretty Bitter Choices: Blue-Collar Women in and out of Work good book Far better then I thought it would beNot a disappointment I actually enjoyed it and I amlad I read it during this october It was a short book so I thought why not and read it very uickly I ve never heard this story in it s entirety before It s a uick informative and astonishing read.
