As you read, the gross majority of injuries in the United States are unintentional, but some injuries are intentional, inflicted upon one individual by another. Using a local newspaper or local news website, locate three articles that deal with violence in your community or nearest city.

For each article,

  • Provide a two-sentence summary along with the link to the article.
  • Identify and describe the victim and the perpetrator.
  • Identify what you feel was the underlying cause of the violence.
  • Create a suggestion as to how the violence could have been avoided or prevented.
  • Propose an idea on how public health could become involved in preventing future violence in your area.
