Most have the Random Actor behavior profile identified by Dan Korem in the early 1990s. This is not a criminal profile, but a behavioral profile—one that has been used to thwart the impulse to commit catastrophic acts in schools, organizations, neighborhoods, and in combat. People ask, “How do we stop these acts?” Now, there is an answer.

Life-saving strategies that work —Dan Korem identified a three-point intervention that “takes the wires apart” so that a rage-filled person with the Random Actor traits doesn’t “detonate”—and doesn’t want to kill. This intervention also guides a person out of the Random Actor profile without racial, ethnic, or gender stereotyping. And it works. Rage of the Random Actor tells the powerful story of many cases where mass acts of violence have been stopped and individual lives restored. It connects the dots that answer so many questions that are vital to our future.
