Dr. Kenneth Westhues on Mobbing
Dr. Kenneth Westhues:
Doctor Kenneth Westhues, Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of Waterloo in Canada, is a notable author, published in over a dozen languages. Westhues has written numerous books and articles on the subject of workplace and academic mobbing. He has proven a direct connection between mobbing and rampage murders in the University and wrokplace.
About mass shootings, Westhues has correctly concluded:
“Most of the people who go postal, however, in academic as in other workplaces, have been mobbed there in preceding months or years.”
MOBBING AND THE VA TECH MASSACRE: http://www.arts.uwaterloo.ca/~kwesthue/vtmassacre.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_Westhues http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobbing http://arts.uwaterloo.ca/~kwesthue/mobbing.htm http://www.mobbingportal.com/ http://arts.uwaterloo.ca/~kwesthue/howarda0708.htm
There is no formulaic answer. A mob is sometimes stopped by a single person – a dean, a professor, maybe a secretary – with strength of character enough to stand up and say, “Cut it out. Lay off. There will be no ganging up in this workplace.” Far more mobbings than ever make the news are nipped in the bud by one man or woman who has guts. A famous example occurred long ago in the Middle East. A brave, charismatic rescuer shamed mobbers into slinking away by saying, “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.” That rescuer, of course, was himself mobbed sometime later, fatally.
