i dont know about you but it is a bit odd to me that after one shooting, it seems to me that there is another shooting, and then another. this happened after the movie theatre shooting in colorado too. also in my shcool district there were 2 lockdowns today and a kid at a neighboring high school brought a gun. another kid at my school got sent home because he said he was going to kill another student who is a good friend of mine

There are tons of school shootings a day, everywhere. However, you just notice the local and mainstream ones.

Is it really a good idea to report on these murder incidents?
If these shootings weren't so publicized by the media, maybe it wouldn't give any ideas to other criminal minds out there to do something similar. Many of these events could be inspired by other ones.

When somebody kills some kids on Connecticut, everybody weeps. When a bomber in Afghanistan blows up 60 people, nobody gives a ****.

Welcome to life. It's full of suck.

Life is easy. Life is simple. Its people that make life hard for other people.

For starters it happened in America. Secondly, children are considered innocent and are...well...children! Children are more special because they are not yet tainted by the materialism of the main stream. Schools are suppose to be safe and secure. As for the secure part, their security is pretty piss poor. But the fact stands.

Here's one for you.
Israel gets bombed, rocketed, shot at almost everyday. No news media covers it. When Israel finally retaliates, and its usually to strike key leaders, the world responds as if Israel is the bad guy. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a 100% support Israel, but I wanted to offer another form of hypocrisy.

I have NO sympathy for Hamas or Islamic terrorists for that matter.

I don't understand why so many people are willing to make excuses for an organization that abuses children so horribly.
Hamas teaches that bombs are more precious than children

Hamas attacks wedding
Hamas and pedophilia

humans are a violent species, that's a fact, so why is everyone so shocked by violence? we have spent millions of years finding new and terrifying ways to kill one another and that's likely not going to stop.
as for the media reports, remember that the news agencies make money from ratings. thus means that they are going to focus on the most shocking and dramatic stories as those attract the most viewers.

Lions are violent species. But they act only for survival.
Shooting and blowing people self-murdering is not surviving, therefore is a particularly reason to be shocked. If you attack a group of children because they will grow up and somehow disturb or risk your own skin, you will attack and kill them for your own sake - to survive. Blowing a lot of kids and then kill yourself is NOT helping at anything.

The facts are, if they're trying to survive it's plainly expectable, however if the violence used is higher than the required for surviving, then we can just call is shocking. Torturing and then murdering, causing mayhems are killing yourselfs is shocking... and useless.
