The killings sparked a number of legal and legislative actions that were precursors to theViolent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act.   55-year-old failed entrepreneur[1] Gian Luigi Ferri entered an office building at 101 California Street in San Francisco, to the offices of the law firm of Pettit & Martin on the 34th floor. Ferri's reason for targeting the firm is unknown; it had advised him about some real estate deals in the Midwest in 1981, but had no contact with him ever since. Ferri donned ear protectors and opened fire with a pair of TEC-9 submachine handgun and a Norinco NP44 (copy of Colt M1911 pistol) with deadly hollow point Black Talon and standard ammunition, and used Hellfire trigger systems for the TEC-9 pistols.

The attack continued on several floors before Ferri committed suicide as San Francisco Police closed in. Eight people were killed in the attack, and six others injured.[2]  The reason for the shootings was never determined. A typed letter left behind by Ferri contained a list of complaints.  Ferri claimed he had been poisoned by monosodium glutamate (MSG), a flavor enhancer in food, and that he had been "raped" by Pettit & Martin and other firms. The letter also contained complaints against the Food and Drug Administration, the legal profession (which he claimed gave "allegiance to the monarchy"), and a list of over 30 "criminals, rapists, racketeeres [sic], lobbyists", none of whom were among his actual victims.[4] Subsequent reports claimed that Ferri's issues related to a conference he had at a law firm on the 35th floor, and targeted Pettit & Martin by mistake.

They shot Jordan to death while he slept in his car, then stole the vehicle.  Green and Demery claimed they only realized that Jordan Sr. was the father of Michael Jordan after going through items in the car and stole what they found including two NBA championship rings given to Jordan Sr. by his son. Calls carelessly made from Jordan's cell phone resulted in their immediately capture. Their cover story was that they had planned only to tie up their victim and that Green pulled the trigger for no reason, which implies their true reason was they knew their target and had had planned to murder him. Both were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for this and other violent crimes  The victim's body was only found on August 3 in a swamp in Bennettsville, South Carolina, and because it was extremely decomposed, it was not positively identified until August 13 with the help of dental records.

Year 1994

March 1, 1994 Brooklyn Bridge shooting In New York City Lebanese-born immigrant Rashid Baz was driving when he shot at a van of 15 Chabad-Lubavitch Orthodox Jewish students that was traveling on the Brooklyn Bridge. Shooting out of the passenger window of his car, Baz initially opened fire with the Cobray machine gun on the students sitting at the rear windows and right passenger side windows of the van. Holding the gun outside of the driver’s side window, Baz pursued the van across the span of the bridge, and strafed the driver’s side of the van with machine gun fire until its firing mechanism jammed. Baz then picked up the Glock semi-automatic pistol, the second weapon that he had placed on the floor of the front seat of his car. He opened fire for a third time and continued to shoot at the students until that weapon became jammed as well(9). A third weapon that Baz had taken with him in the trunk of his car was a 12-gauge Streetsweeper shotgun that was not used in the attack Four students were shot. The two most seriously wounded included Ari Halberstam, a sixteen-year-old, who died four days later from a shot to the head. The other student, also shot in the head, suffered permanent major speech impediments. Initially, Baz claimed a traffic dispute led him to commit the shootings, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation initially classified the case as road rage.[3] However, at the trial, Baz pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. His defense team also offered the theory that Baz was reacting to events in the Middle East.[4] The jury rejected both defenses, and Baz was convicted of second degree murder and 14 additional counts of attempted murder in New York Supreme Court on December 1, 1994. He was sentenced to 141 years to life in prison.In 2000, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York (Manhattan) Mary Jo White and the Federal Bureau of Investigation re-classified the attack as "the crimes of a terrorist." Defense team portrayed him as suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder due to his childhood exposure to violence during the Lebanese Civil War. They argued further that Baz's actions were triggered by the terrorist killing of 29 Muslims just four days earlier by Baruch Goldstein in Hebron. tags: ptsd defence, road rage cover story ajc

  • February 20, 1997 Edmond Yu - Wikipedia (mental illness terrorist) Wikipedia Edmond Wai-Hong Yu was a Hong Kong Canadian former medical student whose death at the hands of the Toronto police raised issues of police misuse of force. In 1985, the police arrested Yu and took him to the Clark Institute of Psychiatry, where he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. On February 20, 1997 Edmond Yu allegedly assaulted a woman at a bus stop, then boarded a bus. Police attempted to board the bus, then Yu, according to witnesses, raised a small (perhaps toy) hammer. Constable Lou Pasquino fired six shots, hitting Yu three times. An official inquest in 1998-1999 cleared the police of wrongdoing and blamed the absence of decent housing. Sammy Yatim, Edmond Yu, Michael Eligon...the List Continues The Agenda Jul 29, 2013 It’s a haunting look at how so many things went wrong for Yu, the former medical student who lived with schizophrenia.
