The thing I hate the most about the media, in any scenario like this, is the fact that they try to descipher the perpatrator with cappy past histories
and pure assumptions. Sure, the kid went on a killing spree, but does that give them the right to dig everything up on him and use it to better their
Replaying scenes from such a tragedy only inspires more people to do such an act. It doesn't make sense.
I know what you mean Boondock, your so sick of the media, and yet you can't turn your head, or help but to wonder why!
Sure as hell was a wake up call for that town, probably brought people closer together too.
People need to pay better attention to these types of situations, they happen for a reason, they're not all random acts of violence. They all could
be avoided of society decided to do something about it. Instead, the government puts up a metal detector and turns their head. They put up a few
surveilence camera, but that doesn't stop people from bringing guns into schools, malls, fast food restaurants, churches, post offices, etc.
Is it just me, or does anyone else think the government takes advantage of this, to scare the masses subtely to ignore the thought of big brother.
The next generation will be totally fine with cameras watching them on every corner, in every school, mall, etc.
The perp had problems, that's for sure, but sometimes I feel sorry for the ones who commit such acts. I feel sorry for them in the context that they
didn't live their lives to THEIR full potential. Most of the adolescent mass murderes were/are very intelligent individuals, who could have done
alot more for society. But instead, society has contributed nothing to them, except the thought of being an outcast.
To shun someone, is to ignore options. It just doesn't make any sense. It sickens me as to how cruel this place can be. I hate it!
