Perhaps it’s just me….

Perhaps it’s just me, but I don’t think we needed to have released the videos of a delusional psychopathic killer for public consumption. It’s what he would have wanted. Or rather, what a newsmedia infotainment business loves.

    I had similar thoughts about the consumption of tragedy when I heard he stopped to make a video. Like it wasn’t bad enough for his parents already . . .

    I wholeheartedly agree. I would have much prefered that the package was given to some authority who might have, I don’t know, gleaned some understanding of his motivations from it, and then have that information released, rather than giving the shooter his post-mortem glory. Stupid mainstream media.

    Just to be completely accurate, he only stopped to mail the video. He’d actually filmed it well in advance. It was in multiple parts, with other bits associated with it. Would that all the media had to air was a video he’d hastily cobbled together in a few spare moments between shooting sprees. Alas, this stuff has higher production values.
