The term “going postal” has become the way we commonly refer to the mental state of a person who goes on a shooting spree, typically in a workplace or a school, but also in any other public place.
America has witnessed widespread changes over the last 50-years, along with a profound transformation of the relationship between the individual and society. Could this shift have resulted in unseen forces, both within the workplace and outside of it, that are propelling this epidemic of mass murder?
As “Murder by Proxy: How America Went Postal” explores the startling history of the going postal phenomenon, the film also follows the story of two extraordinary men brought together by their selfless dedication to defending the rights of ordinary American workers.
