Averted: The UK Shooter Plot - Uncovering a Thwarted Massacre

S4E49

This episode of 'Stop the Killing' features guest journalist and podcaster Robert Murphy, who dives into the story of a thwarted shooting plot in the UK. The tale involves a man of low intelligence with an obsession for weapons, who had been plotting a massive attack but was caught before he could carry out his plans. Thanks to meticulous planning and online purchases, this individual amassed a do-it-yourself arsenal, raising flags that led to his arrest. Police found a 'revenge document' outlining detailed plans for attacks on schools, police headquarters, and individuals who had wronged him. Despite his claims of fantasy, the severity and specificity of his plans pointed to a serious intent. The episode highlights the importance of monitoring and intelligence in preventing such plots and raises questions about gun culture and the glorification of guns. Bonus content for the episode, including photos, body cam footage, and interviews, is available on Patreon.
