American Crime Story Season 3 Theme

After an award-winning first outing, American Crime Story is going strong in its second season. Darren Criss is turning in what could be a career-defining performance as spree killer Andrew Cunanan, in much the same way that Sarah Paulson was a standout among a plethora of strong performances as DA Marcia Clark in season one. But The Assassination of Gianni Versace was actually supposed to be season three of American Crime Story. It had to be swapped with the original season two idea, which turned out to be too large an undertaking to produce in time for season two. The change happened fairly late in the game; nearly two whole years passed between the premiere of season one and the premiere of season two.

The third season of ACS is focusing on Hurricane Katrina, specifically what happened to the employees and

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story Episode 6 Photos Descent

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story – Wednesdays at 10 PM ET/PT

Inspired by actual events, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story profiles spree-killer Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss), whose cross-country path of destruction earns him a spot on FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List, before his murder of international fashion icon Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez) on the steps of Versace’s South Beach residence in 1997. Based on the book Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth, the series examines how cultural homophobia and prejudice delayed law enforcement’s search for Cunanan, as well as Versace’s relationship with his sister and muse Donatella (Penélope Cruz). https://seat42f.com/the-assassination-of-gianni-versace-american-crime-story-episode-6-photos-descent.html

There Is No Clear Profile of an American Mass Shooter – The New …

It’s not clear that access to mental health care would have prevented violence. Elliot O. Rodger saw several therapists before he killed six people in Isla Vista, Calif., in May 2014. His therapists disagreed on the nature of his mental disorders.

Adam Lanza, who killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, had received years of counseling from psychiatrists and psychologists. Though he had Asperger’s syndrome, a mild form of autism that does not suggest violent behavior, he had never been found to have any mental illness that would.

Domestic violence

The factors that would lead someone to domestic violence are similar to those that would lead someone to mass killings, researchers have found.

Quite often, the crimes overlap. Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control group, found that 57 percent of mass shooting

As convenient as it would be, there is no one-size-fits-all profile of who carries out mass shootings in the United States.

About the only thing almost all of them have in common is that they are men.

But those men come from varying backgrounds, with different mental health diagnoses and criminal histories. Examining past New York Times coverage of mass shootings reveals some shared tendencies of the gunmen, including the fact that they are most commonly white, but such traits Read more at: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/17/us/mass-murderers.html

Florida school shooting drill: Most American public schools now hold …

“Are you kids good at running and screaming?” a police officer asks a class of elementary school kids in Akron, Ohio.

His friendly tone then turns serious.

“What I don’t want you to do is hide in the corner if a bad guy comes in the room,” he says. “You gotta get moving.”

This training session — shared online by the ALICE Training Institute, a civilian safety training company — reflects the new normal at American public schools. As armed shooters continue their deadly rampages, and while Washington remains stuck on gun control, a new generation of American students have learned to lock and barricade their classroom doors the same way they learn to drop and roll in case of a fire.

The training session is a stark reminder of how American schools have changed since the 1999 Columbine school shooting. School administrators and state lawmakers have realized that

Give Judith Light an Emmy for Her Guest Spot on ‘American Crime …

“They killed my husband for a car.”

That is what Home Shopping Network star Marilyn Miglin, played by Judith Light, tells her viewing audience at the end of the third episode of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. It’s what the rest of the world was told as well: Her husband, Chicago real estate magnate Lee Miglin (Mike Farrell), was the unfortunate victim of a random act of violence. Tragic, but most important, random.

The real story behind Miglin’s murder is much more complicated and multifaceted—there’s compelling evidence that Miglin knew his murderer, spree killer Andrew Cunanan (as portrayed in Versace by a terrifying Darren Criss). Not only that, Miglin was quite likely a client of Cunanan, who was a high-end escort for gay men. Following her husband’s murder, the most important thing to Marilyn is perception, and the lengths necessary to preserve a

Judith Light on American Crime Story: Versace, Andrew Cunanan, and Playing Marilyn Miglin

In the hands of actors Judith Light and Mike Farrell, the tragic story of Chicago power couple Lee and Marilyn Miglin in this week’s episode of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story makes viewers forget the titular fashion icon altogether. “A Random Killing” tells the story of Andrew Cunanan’s third murder in 1997, three months before he shot Versace on the steps of his South Beach mansion. As depicted in the episode, Cunanan was a paid escort who had a relationship with the real-estate mogul (Farrell) and killed him while his wife Marilyn (Light), the founder of a beauty empire, was away on a
