    Good Students Gone Bad 

    What is it with people today? Why does it seem the norm now for people whose lives are less than optimal to get a firearm and go on a rampage through a public place?

    One could blame the media for sensationalizing these events and making certain that these people get their 15 minutes of infamy. Before the Columbine incident you rarely heard of such events, one of the only other sources I know of such events happening was in the movie, Higher Learning. Since Columbine, the national coverage of these events are enormous and long lasting. Digging in to the lives of everyone involved and displaying the shooters to life to everyone around the world. When looking at it like this, if someone in need of help and in need of recognition sees these events and sees a kindred lost and lonely soul in the paper, on the TV, on the internet, I think it could really speak to them and it can become a solution for them to be recognized. I am not saying that everyone who reads or sees the press will run out and grab an assault rifle and a case of ammo, but what I am saying is that it can seem appealing to those that are in need of acceptance and recognition (and who are slightly to mostly insane).

    These events are tragic and definitely uncalled for but ultimately, I feel it is the fault of the in depth, front page coverage that parades the face of the killers across the eyes of world. I personally think that the best way to deal with these events is to; acknowledge it happened, cover the victims, but say next to nothing about the killers who seem to want exactly what our media gives them, recognition and infamy.

    It appears that I can push propaganda out to the internet from my own domain. How exciting!

    Let it begin.
