When bad things happen, the media bombards us with it for months at a time. No good comes from doing this. Unless you consider lining their pockets
with money a good thing. The public has a right to know what is going on in the world, but certain things are counterproductive to society. Society
does not need to know every detail. Society does not really need to know the perpetrators name. Society does not need to see the gory details 30 times
a day for months. The media only bombards us with it for ratings/money. They have conditioned society to feel they need to know the gory details. It
is like driving on the Interstate and there is a wreck on the other side going the opposite direction yet the clear road you are on stops because of
When i was growing up we had 3 TV stations, bad things happened but were not on the national news. When JFK was assasinated it was on the news
but that is quite different. Any mass murders, etc, were delegated to rumor. There simply is nothing good that comes from bombarding society with
things they can do nothing about. In the case of the school shootings it would be dealt with at the federal/state level and the solution to the
problem would/should be dealt with by proffesionals to whom it relates. School shooting? Guard the schools. Theater shooting? Safeguard the theater.
In both cases, look at mental health issues. Do not however burden society with the gory details for ratings/money. Keep these horrible events local
and delegate them to mere rumors. Do not make the murderer famous.
