RE: Another school shooting.
What gets me -- is regardless of how many times these horrors happen --

The media just keeps on muck-raking.

.......

The Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin gets my vote as the smartest guy in the whole mess -- for refusing to even say the gunman's name.

Why give these fucking sickos what they want -- fame?

Sheriff Hanlin deserves kudos... He knows why these bastards do what they do, and he's not going to reward them.

Good on him....

I'm not sure if I posted it here, but the guy had a blog, where he wrote about everyone knows the name of the killers.

He said in the blog (if it was indeed his) the shooters went from obscurity to everyone knowing them. I think he equated the notoriety to some sort of instant fame.

This whole reality star culture we live in, where people become famous for nothing, might be an extension of this?

I don't know, I hate blaming things...but there are people who seem to chase fame.

RE: Another school shooting.
Oregon State Police have said the Shooter was enrolled in the class he shot up. Waiting for more sources to 100% confirm but

RE: Another school shooting.
Does anyone have any data on mass shootings that happened in the past...like a few decades ago? I am wondering if there is a huge increase in actual numbers or if it seems that way due to instant and intense news coverage and the spread of info.

It just seems like these things didn't happen when I was in school, and it wasn't because of a lack of means.

Are people crazier now? Is it the lack of mental health care? Are people just not paying attention to changing behavior in people around them?

I must say that I agree with metal detectors at schools.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I agree with the biker and even CNN and FOX (I think) are refusing to name the killer. But there's a video out there where Oath Keeper Sheriff insinuated the victims of Sandy Hook's parents were actors. The video was removed today but Ima gonna find it. Idiot gets to experience his idiocy up close and personal. Karma, it's a bitch.

I must say that I agree with metal detectors at schools.

Way back in college, I remember reading the deadliest time for city dwellers was during the 1920s -- as far as mass killings were concerned.

I know gun violence was said to have dropped in the early 2000s.

I don't think it's media coverage of the events that has changed...they kinda deserve attention -- especially schools because they're supposed to be safe places (rather like churches or libraries). So I doubt it's not like they didn't happen but it's possible if you might have missed the story years ago...the news was an hour long...that's why we also had morning and evening newspapers.

I really think we do have a mental health crisis. So many managed care groups or HMOs make people jump through hoops....

I never used to agree with metal detectors in schools...but I do now...but they're only effective if used at every possible entrance or exit.

Media coverage didn't used to be 24/7. That's why I wonder if it isn't drilled into our consciousness more than it was back when the news was on a couple times a day and the stories weren't played over and over unless they were local or a huge national or global story.

Seems that things happened back in the day and you read about it or heard it on the news and sometimes (if it wasn't local) you didn't hear any more about it.

I absolutely agree with the mental health crisis.
