MANHUNT: Lewiston, Maine Mass Shooting & The Urgency of Prevention

S4E41

In this episode of Stop the Killing, hosts Catherine and Sarah discuss the Lewiston, Maine mass shooting that occurred on October 25, 2023. The gunman, a local with known mental health issues and a history of violent threats, attacked two frequented locations, killing 18 people and injuring 13. The hosts scrutinize the apparent lack of urgency in dealing with the perpetrator despite multiple red flags and speak to the delayed and knee-jerk reaction of shutting down the entire town post-incident. The hosts emphasize the importance of systematic and timely handling of such situations and advocate for stricter gun control measures and proactive prevention methods to eliminate the occurrence of such heinous acts in the future.
