Murders and killing sprees are tragedies, simply put. In nature, life kills life... in a delicate balance in which the most dominant life is that
which has adapted to take advantage of its environment the most. As humans, our consciousness has both accepted and condemned the killing of fellow
humans. Some even believe the condemnation of murder to be the will of their God.
The reason certain murders get more attention than others is because the media can sensationalize aspects of a particular story (Father killing
children, child killing mother, worker killing boss, etc.) The story you posted is no different, but here's the problem the news media has run
into... Crazy things like this happen every day. When art (which imitates life) has shown that the idea of "4 people shot to death today" is a
cliche news headline, that speaks volumes about the sick reality of the headlines being true in our world. People become bored and disillusioned by
To keep eyeballs glued to the TV, and to spur controversy and division among the masses, the news media has to keep reports of murders to a minimum,
and to sensationalize those with intriguing circumstances. Whether you believe in "TPTB" (or whatever kooky name people have for CEOs and Presidents
these days) or not, news items will always have a spin which reflects the ownership of the network.
In Treyvon Martin's murder, those who are both pro and anti-gun have so much to say that the story sensationalized itself on Twitter before the news
media could grab hold of it. Our nation is full of divisive memes which brainwash people into picking a side on an issue based on keywords and
hot-button issues, rather than forming their own opinions. Thus, the battle for your mind continues.
