so... since its common, its morally acceptable to ignore/under report these shootings?

if you're going to criticize (not you specifically) one shooting, then you're going to have to look at all shootings to understand how to curb the overall violence. picking and choosing what to fix and what not to fix is like placing a band-aide on a broken leg.

I wouldn't go that far. Remember all the media coverage Columbine got? I sure do.

How many copy cats within a month back then? This is at least the fifth mass shooting in recent weeks. And a few more attempts come to mind that the MSM refuses to report on because the gun man was mowed down by someone carrying a pistol of their own.

Oh yes, conspiracy is afoot. Make no mistake.


Thats what gets me..........the MSM will NOT report anything on the ones stopped by people who were carrying a weapon........

.......it doesnt sit right..........


Finally a conspiracy that I can believe in! MSM not reporting people saved by a gun. They have also not mentioned that violent crime (including murder) is down 50% in the USA over the last 20 years. The conspiracy is selling Americans fear while grabbing their only form of instant defense. We will protect says our Government. I have been put on hold twice when I called 911. Once while in the middle of a very violent situation.

Take the guns from americans and tax the heck out them to provide "protection". That is the freaking conspiracy.

We need to stop reporting on this crap. We are getting copy cat psychos. Ignore it. Same reason we don't report serial killings.
The MSMs incessant desire to exploit these events for ratings should be considered a criminal act.


Personally, i would like to know sooner rather than later that there was a shooting at my kids school. My kids have a phone on them at all times, if i heard asap via the news or somewhere like ATS (which is usually the case) that there was an incident there, i could maybe contact them straight away and get down there.

I understand your point though.

Got it in one. This is exactly the problem.

People decide to try and up the body count, too. Go out with a bang, no pun intended.

They need to be shrouded in anonymity, forever.

Does it matter? The bottom line is money. What I think of the morality of it is of no consequence to those in the media.

Either way, poverty is like a huge zit we keep putting makeup on hoping it just goes away. It should be discussed, but it won't be.

I read that it was a shotgun that was used.

I guess they'll be going after those next.

Idiots have been running this Country far to long and it has gone to their heads.

It'll be their undoing.

I agree completely. It would seem that these "news outlets" thrive on the most negative, the most dire news. From mass shooting to terrorist attacks, the constant drive for ratings helps stoke the fires of the ones that would do harm just to have their 15 minutes.

So a kid in Miami shoots his science teacher.
Isn't that the same class the gun lovers were saying needed to train kids with guns, right after teaching them about the birds and the bees?

...it was a gang related shooting outside of the school and one of the shooter went in the school to hide...

This is NOT a school shooting.


What the MSM report will be:

a school shooting.

I agree with that, but as a parent i like the idea of being informed if my kids are in danger asap.

I guess they are two separate issues.

I love it when karmic irony is instant! Causing those who jump the gun to trip out of the starting gate!

It's much more entertaining than the typical foot-in-mouth that's usually put forth...

No, the MSM will largely ignore it because it wasn't a school shooting - just business as usual...

There is LOT of kids with mental disability. It is makes me furious that the wealthy are not wanting to be taxed to what they should. It is amazing to me that the leaders of the republican party are protecting the lobbyist and the 2%ers and trying to guard them from parting from their bank accounts. It truly is destroying america. They have plain and simple too much money hidden away in off shore banking etc. I just don't think very many people can comprehend how much money they have but it must be in the trillions.

So much of that money could be used to help the mentally disturbed, with guidance and with counselors that show they truly care for them and not sending them out in the streets like they started to do with Reganomics etc. I means a lot to those kids if they have love and support and not sent out without any guidance.,

Thanks republicans for all that you do to hide the wealthy with provisions to make sure they get their way and not give help to these kids that are disturbed

If anything a shotgun is probably more dangerous than an AR or AK at close range, precision.

And you're right, they will take any crisis and use it to sculpt some ridiculous law.

At the time our founders wrote "the right to keep and bear arms" almost ALL arms were military assault weapons.

Same goes today, checks and balances to keep those in check that have the means to harm the common man.

The very right that kept the Japanese from invading the continental US is the same one being torn to shreds on Capitol Hill as we speak.

I agree about the TV film violence. However, there were actually murders before TV was invented so it can't all be blamed on TV/Film violence.

The breakdown of family and the internet and TV have a lot to answer for.



Yes absolutely. But it's the desensitization to violence promulgated by media that worries me.
If you watch people being killed all day long. Even though it's the good guy doing the killing.
That changes you.

Out of curiosity what country do you live in?
Maybe your media doesn't glorify violence.
