It's very sad people get so disillusioned with the world they wreak havoc on it. Even sadder that people would copy them in doing such things.
Batman shooting happened and a score of copycat killers or would be killers popped up, and for what? To get your 15 minutes of fame after the first
one did? You're not even original good sir.
Nothing really changes with this sort of thing though, what happens on the news is never what actually happens. It's just a symptom of what really
goes on behind the scenes. If people think they can make any kind of change by simply making the 8 o'clock spot they are sadly mistaken. They just
become a statistic.
That's why I keep arguing that the media's style of sensationalist reporting is actually promoting and facilitating copycat and repeat acts of
Because it gives a free pass to any idiot to become famous instantly.
