    Tragic all the way around.

    The youth of today is parented often by video games that can take a weak mind, or a sick mind, and turn fiction into reality.

    Drugs can also make people do crazy things, clearly.

    Batman has a very dark side for those that rememebr Heath Ledger.

    I pray for the shooter and for the families of the innocent victims during these horrific times.

    It’ll be interesting to see if this tragedy receives far more press than the Major Nadal murders at Ft. Hood…
    I seem to recall that Lady Liberty was blindfolded to minimize imbeded prejudices.
    Our heartfel sympathies to victims and families at both horrible events.
    Both cold-blodded murderers should see a fireing squad themselves.

    I just cannot understand why people would do something like he did.  Mental illness….our lack of caring and compassion for one another…..or how hard we have made it to succeed in this day and age?  It is senseless.

    There is no need to pay so much attention to the perp and glorify him with attention, remember that is often one of the reasons for doing mass murder to be famous. Most of what we will be getting is conjecture which is worthless as it is likely to be wrong.

    I would limit the information the crime committed and the victims, then to the trial an the sentence and leave it  at that. Perhaps mention the perps name once in each of those two articles, but no picture. Strip the crime of its fame angle and you discourage  others from doing the same thing just  become internationally famous.

    Continue the media frenzy and you just encourage others to do the same thing, and as we know there will be others.
