Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.-San Bernardino Mass Shooting
Listen to Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D. as he is interviewed on America Now with Meghan McCain regarding the San Bernardino Mass Shooting on December 2, 2015. On December 3, 2015, Dr. Nuccitelli was interviewed by Meghan McCain during her three-hour national radio broadcast discussing the San Bernardino Shooting tragedy. As you will hear during this brief interview, Ms. McCain asks Dr. Nuccitelli provocative questions surrounding the husband and wife team who brutally murdered fourteen people and wounded twenty-one.
Although the assailant couple, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, pledged their allegiance to an Islamic State leader on Facebook, authorities were not prepared to conclude this travesty was a terrorist attack or workplace related at the time of this show. In response to Ms. McCain’s question regarding the ability of terrorist groups to use social media as an influential tactic for motivating other terrorists, Dr. Nuccitelli affirmed her query. Concurring with Ms. McCain, Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D. strongly suspects the San Bernardino Mass Shooting at the Inland Regional Center was an act of terrorism and not simply an act of workplace violence. Dr. Nuccitelli would like to say Thank you to America Now with Meghan McCain for inviting him to be their guest. To listen to his interview with Ms. McCain, simply click on the microphone image here.

Dr. Nuccitelli presents his belief that cyberspace is becoming, or already is, an extension of cyberspace. He strongly believes that cyberspace has effects upon the human mind not yet explained by modern science. For those interested in learning a little about what Dr. Nuccitelli is referring to, it is recommended to Goggle the terms Reality-Virtuality Continuum, Disinhibition Effect and the works of Carl Jung. If the San Bernardino shooters were influenced by their online activities, Dr. Nuccitelli believes his two iPredator sub-constructs, iPredator Bridge and ODDOR were involved.
Since the beginning of human civilization, ideology has driven people to commit atrocious acts of violence. In the Information Age, the seeds of militant ideology are easily nourished. Once a person or group of people are validated in their extreme views, the probability of implementing their violent plans grows exponentially. For a yet to be determined reason, cyberspace has an uncanny ability to speak to the dark side of human consciousness. Living in the Information Age, Cyber Terrorism and iPredators will become permanent fixtures of the human experience. With each passing year, homeland security must focus on cyber attack prevention.

“The Information Age technocentric concept of being “connected” is actually a paradox of disconnection causing us to lose our instinctual drives for social cohesion, allegiance and selflessness. As our dependency upon Information and Communications Technology [ICT] grows, spreading throughout our collective human consciousness, the less we care for our neighbors and the more we delude ourselves into thinking that online connections are far more valuable than realty based relationships.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.
