In our community a boy committed suicide and it was not reported in any way except for his obituary. I found out that it's common practice not to report it because it spawns more suicides. In fact someone close to this boy tried to commit suicide within one week.
Maybe this practice of minimal reporting should be extended to mass shootings. Is it good for the media to engage in "up-your-nostrils-reporting"? Maybe the media are de facto accomplices to murder.
The media is powerful and provide a stage and an audience which these mass murderers seem to crave as their final performance on earth.
Suicide screams hatred for one's life, mass murder+suicide screams hatred for life. Don't glorify it with a stage and audience.
