It isn't news, it's just rubbernecking. The media is doing everyitng to insure that another would-be mass murderer proceeds with his fantasy.


A forensic psychologist says what can be done to reduce the chances of this happening again.  If the media doesn’t want to propagate mass murders:

·         Don’t start the story with sirens blaring.

·         Don’t have photographs of the killer.

·         Don’t make this 24/7 coverage.

·         Do everything you can not to make the body count the lead story.

·         Not to make the killer some kind of anti-hero.

·         Do localize this story to the affected community and make it as boring as possible in every other market.

·         Every time we have intense saturation coverage we expect to see on or two more.
