So while I was watching Showtime tonight, I saw the advertisement for a new series called Active Shooter: America Under Fire.  Here is the trailer that they are advertising.

AWESOME! With the comparatively large amount of TV Shows/Movies dedicated to serial killers, I'm glad to see that some about mass shooters are finally appearing.

IKR? Serial killers have become overused and boring, mass murder is far more interesting nowadays.

I couldn't really get into serial killers, because they usually end up being character studies, and the character is always "sexually maladjusted psychopath".  “Serial killers are lame. Everyone knows that mass murderers are the cool kids".

The show will examine shooter incidents like Aurora, San Bernardino, Charleston, the DC Navy Yard, Oak Creek, Orlando, and Columbine.

The series was announced by Showtime on September 5, revealing that survivors, families of the victims, and witnesses in the shootings would be part the docuseries and would offer their perspective on what happened in each scenario.

Tonight’s premiere will examine the 2012 mass shooting inside a Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises. Twelve people were killed in the audience, and 70 were injured– the largest number of casualties in a shooting in the US.


So, did anyone watch the premiere about Aurora? I'd like to watch it but I haven't seen it yet.

I'm curious about how much the witnesses and surviving victims will be participating and adding to the conversation. Also curious about what angle they're going for and whether there is any particular agenda they're going to push as a simple solution to the mass shooting problem (mental health, gun control, ?) or whether it will be an honest exploration of the issue with more complex conclusions.

I would like to see a Sandy Hook episode but I'm guessing that isn't going to happen or it would have been on the list above.

So I did watch this. The documentary is pretty much from the viewpoint of the first responders, police, hospital staff, and victims/families. It doesn't go into great detail about the event itself other than a brief description of what James Holmes did while in the theater and the emergency response afterward. One victims family describes how they are now pushing for the No Notoriety movement. There aren't really any new ideas on how to prevent these events. They did talk about James Holmes a little bit. I thought it was interesting enough to watch the next episode.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I think I will probably watch it even if it's nothing new. From your description, it actually sounds a lot like the documentary 'Newtown' about Sandy Hook. That focused on first responders' recollections and the experience of victims' families as well as their attempts to influence public policy after the shooting instead of the shooter.

Thanks for the information!

I like character studies, I'm just tired of hearing about serial killers when the vast majority of them are old news. There's nothing that hasn't already been said about them.

That all? I was expecting an in-depth look into the psychology of a mass murderer, how they planned things, what warning signs were missed, etc.

Yeah I wanted to hear a little more about what drove him to go through with the mass shooting but all they basically talked about was whether or not he was sane. They did interview the doctor who performed the psychological tests.

Expanding on what Ainjel already shared:

  • Most of it was the police/medical staff talking about the crisis, like having to transport the injured in police cars, learning a little girl was among the victims, lack of hospital beds, etc.
  • 2 victims who survived being shot recall their experience from arriving at the movie to arriving at the hospital. One of them talks about testifying in court, and the chronic pain they now live with.
  • A mother and father talk about their son, who died protecting his girlfriend. They're also the ones who speak about the No Notoriety movement.
  • The psychiatrist who had to determine if James was legally sane said James was a quiet but bright kid who never held a gun until graduate school. He mentions James wanting the shooting to be impersonal, being remembered for those orange hair selfies, and "earning a point" for each person he's killed. The planning of the attack taking his mind off his depression/suicidal thoughts is briefly mentioned.
  • The episode ends with a police officer saying "We've seen a change in our society since Columbine. We need to stop whatever's happening. This suspect had everything going for him in his life, and then for whatever reason, decided at that time he was gonna be the worst shooter in US history... and then someone else comes along.... I don't know." The screen then says "in memory of" and lists the victims before the credits roll.

So last nights episode was about San Bernadino. Most of this episode was from the viewpoint of the officers hunting for the suspects. They did delve a little deeper into motive this week with discussion about religious extremism. One of the pieces that stuck out most to me this week was a comment from an officer. He said that after Columbine we now have the responsibility of not waiting and going ahead and eliminating the threat. I can't remember his exact words but this was the idea he was trying to relay. This same officer said that when he entered the scene, he noticed a victim who needed help but he had to make sure the threat was eliminated before delivering first aid. That victim ended up dying before first aid could have been rendered which struck me as rather tragic.

I am most interested in the Columbine episode. It won't be anything none of us don't already know, but still.

Do you know if they plan on making an episode about Sandy Hook? There has, at least to my knowledge, been no actual live action documentary portraying that shooting. Not to say I will get my hopes up, even if they did do an episode on it, I feel like they won't accurately portray it as they should.

Wirely, I don't see it listed for this season but if it gets picked up I bet they will cover it.

Watched the Aurora episode a few days ago. I wish they had a narrator but they did a good job nonetheless. I like how they showed the point of view from doctors and nurses, I'd love to hear from medical staff that treated Columbine students particularly the critically injured ones. That Aurora survivor who's considering amputating his leg was a really emotionally heavy scene, can't even describe the impact of it really.

Yeah, I like how the show has devoted time to lesser known shootings rather than just sticking to the most famous ones.

Thanks STK. If anyone's looking for some sort of TV show or anything like that, check Dailymotion since someone's probably uploaded an episode onto there.
Also off topic, this might be a stupid question, but does your name mean "shoot to kill"?
