You can help by turning off the news.
It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news."

Re: You can help by turning off the news.
there have been 14 mass shootings in the not quite 4 years since obama took office, yet there were only 10 in the 8 years of bush.

this leads me to believe that the hate and vitriol cultivated by the left isn't helping matters.

The Media just waits for a tragedy like this . They can't wait to pounce and wring every ounce of misery from the survivors, stick a camera in anyone's face they can. The Sheriff should round them all up and escort he Parasites out of town.

It's pathetic the media won't take an interest in other atrocities happening in this country.

Re: You can help by turning off the news.
just turn ot all off it's all brainwashing, newspapers, the lot. if you must watch a tv show then turn the thing off when the adverts/commercials come on. it's all about imprinting their scams and shit on the dopey ignorant masses, thus causing programming and triggers in the most vulnerable. there doesn't seem to be many options these days unless your lucky to live in a log cabin in the mountains miles away from civilisation and you can eat and survive in nature.
