You're going to need to be more specific.

If I had to guess I think he means the way the Media is making an icon out of this killer bye plastering his face all over the networks.

We're also advertising to the whole world that the easiest targets for Anti-American to attack are our schools. They are not guarded.

Have you thought of it that way?

This is exactly what I meant. At least to the other future would be mental case/killers I think the thought of doing something so horrific so that they end up on TV is motivation enough to start planning for it. Why else all the copycats? My own preference would be for the orange haired freak that shot up the movie theater to get the public hanging, firing squad or electrocution as a deterrent for these sick cowards!

That's what's missing in the media, a deterrent that a would-be mass murderer would understand. Instead the media glorifies the sick individuals by mentioning their names and showing their pictures repeatedly. And the media KNOWs its a self serving policy on their own part to keep these powerful tragic stories in the news by fanning the flames but they never get called out for it.

I agree with you. Just going to become another page in the psycho mass murderer handbook. Hey maybe even some Taliban is planning something just like it.

Wiping away the crocodile tear after a series of carefully planned pauses? Me too.

I agree with not showing the killer.

Yep, we're punishing monsters by doing exactly what they want... we give them attention and whipping ourselves into a state of fear.

Rome had the right idea; erase the miscreant from history.

Rome had the right idea; erase the miscreant from history."We" is the correct term here. "The media" is just a collection of businesses providing the product that will make them the most money.

I personally still don't know what the shooter looked like. To some, the fact that I don't care about this person or his backstory makes me apathetic.

Where's the "correct" middle ground? Do the people who are intensely interested in this guy and his background need to pretend they're not, so that the media doesn't provide them with what they secretly want?

Honest I have to applaud Obama that he learned a hard lesson: he gave a union of speech on Thur Night or Sunday night. No one really watched him but watched the football game. This time Obama did it differently and it was a successful. It is a slight taste of the bigger thing which it is coming soon.

According to Nancy Grace tonight, the shooter was addicted to a Video Game called Dance Dance Revolution. I think they need to do something about all these violent video games!
