2012 Aurora Shooting

Abstract

Cases of Crime are increasing in the United States even after people have been educated on the social and economic impact of criminal acts. Shooting is experienced almost in every day with the US territories. There shootings are not only done from the perspective of robbery but there could be other issues that drive people into crime acts such as the Aurora Shooting in 2012, on July 20. The Aurora Shooting was a mass shooting that happened in Century Movie Theater, a theater in Aurora, Colorado. It was a horrible scene occurring in the midnight of July 20 during the screening of "The Dark Night Rises." The reason behind the shooting is still anonymous and the identity of the suspect was held without being revealed for a long time. Investigation was conducted to establish the reason why a tactically dressed gunman would set off grenades of tear gas and shoot into innocent audience. It would be unreasonable to initiate such a crime with any aim of benefiting from the criminal act. Most of similar criminals would be in a special mission but the idea of attacking an audience without a particular target can be a subject of many questions. It would be important to find out the aim of the shooting and whether there could have been other suspects being involved in the shooting whether directly or indirectly. These findings would be established in a research aimed at gathering adequate information about the Aurora Shooting. It would include all happenings within the scene and the reason for the suspect to be hardly moved by the presence of police. It would be significant to find out the social and economic impact of similar crimes in the United Stated and the best strategy of handling the resulting effects to curtail such crimes' adverse impact on the society. The research would establish information on the way the government reacted and the measures taken to prevent similar cases in the future and whether the existing strategies are effective or require some changes.
