Play • 47 min

A growing threat of grievance- shooting is taking center stage across the world.  

Recent examples include the assassination of Japan’s popular prime minister to a patient in Tulsa, Oklahoma who gunned down two doctors and two medical personnel because he was angry about ongoing pain following his surgery.

Sasha Larkin, the Deputy Chief of the Homeland Security Division at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, describes this new threat.

The 22-year veteran of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says it was easier to deal with the Osama bin Laden’s of the terrorist world because it was easier to identify them and their motivations.

Larkin came up through the ranks reaching Deputy Chief.

From her post overseeing the Homeland Security Division, Larkin has a unique perspective on crime trends.

In a wide-ranging conversation with investigative reporter Robert Riggs, Larkin discusses the new phenomenon of grievance shootings, her approach to stopping murders that arise out of domestic violence, her path to leadership as a role model to women, and the deadly Route 91 mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip that occurred on October 1st of 2017.

You may recall that a 64-year-old lone, heavily armed rifleman perched in a 32nd-floor suite of the Mandalay Bay Hotel opened fire on a crowd at the Harvest Music Festival below. 

He killed 60 people. Wounded 411. Caused chaos that led to the injury of 456 people.

It was the deadliest mass shooting committed by an individual in U.S. history. 

And the killer’s motive remains a mystery. 

In this episode, Robert Riggs takes a look inside the crime scene tape at America’s playground—Las Vegas.
