The Seventh Mass Shooting in Seven Days in Gun-soaked America
We begin with the seventh mass shooting in the U.S. in just this last seven days with 10 killed in a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado on Monday by a 21 year old with an assault rifle Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa. A resident of Boulder who shops at the supermarket which was the scene of yesterday’s massacre, Aya Gruber, Professor of Law at the University of Colorado School of Law who writes in the areas of criminal law and procedure, comparative and international law, critical theory and feminism and is the author of The Feminist War on Crime: The Unexpected Role of Women’s Liberation in Mass Incarceration, joins us. We discuss the shock and unease in Boulder which is in a state that has already experienced the Columbine school massacre, the shooting at Planned Parenthood of Colorado Springs, the Aurora Theater massacre and the STEM school shooting in Highlands Ranch.
