Welcome to the Amok Wiki

This wiki is supposed to become a resource base for the scientific study of amok, rampage killing, and comparable phenomena. Please bear in mind that this wiki is still in its infancy; a lot of topics are not yet covered, and many articles incomplete, or unfinished. If you are in desperate need of information on the matter, or just want to kill some time until the situation here has improved sufficiently, you may want to watch a few documentaries, or read a couple of scientific articles.
