Does The Leaded Law Hold True in Cincinnati?

Another nightclub shooting.

Reports are in of a nightclub shooting in Cincinnati; one dead and 14 injured. No suspects captured as of yet.

With just the information from the Daily Mail’s headline, can we use our rules of thumb to paint a more detailed picture of the crime and the criminal?

Recall the Leaded Law: Because marksmanship is just another form of White Privilege, the casualty ratio in a mass shooting is usually a good (but not perfect) indicator of the demographic profile of the shooter, as follows:

Casualty Ratio (Killed:Wounded)               Profile of Shooter

Lower than 1:3                                                   Young Black Male

Greater than 1:3, lower than 2:1                  Young “Irish” or Hispanic Male

Greater than 2:1                                                Young White Male

 

With a casualty ratio of 1:14, I’m going to guess that the shooter was a young Black male gang member with a score to settle.

We’ll follow this story and see how it turns out.
