I didn't want to bring this up since once again the media is seriously going overboard with the coverage of the shooting. I'm not cold hearted. I think it's terrible and the first day I was glued to the TV to find out what was going on. A few days have passed and this morning while watching the Today Show was the first time I got annoyed with the media, where I thought, "Alright, now you're just being stupid." with their little segments, Coming up next, how to tell if your teenager is suffering from Depression. If 50something years of having psychobabble drilled into our brains from a plethora of sources telling us about signs of depression doesn't tell you, then you shouldn't be a parent because you're clueless!
It's information overload now. Let us put under a microscope every kid and teenager who seems a little different from others. Just to be on the safe side, lets pop some pills in them just to make sure they don't anything stupid. Sure. I know the way a lot of people think and it's pretty stupid. Plus, a lot of parents nowadays are soooo self-absorbed in their own lives that they don't even pick up on warning signs when it's right under their nose. Mom is too busy spending money to look young and dad is working 14 hours a day to make the money for mom to spend.
What makes this whole thing even more dispicable is now they're continuously showing the killers photos, videos, and ramblings sent to NBC. Don't they realize the damage they are doing just from showing this over and over? They're asking for copycats. This kid was a copycat!
Do you watch sports? Pro-wrestling? Do you see what happens when a fan gets on the field or jumps in the ring? The camera cuts away immediately. You don't really see the scuffle between them and security. Why? Because they don't want to encourage this behavior from other pathetic losers dumb enough to do this. And believe me they are out there! I guess it's different for news programs. Are network executives that evil? Are they HOPING for more copycats to come out just to give them more meat to chew on? It just makes me shake my head.
