Let's Apply the Son of Sam Laws.
Everytime one of these nutbags shoots up a school, church, mall - or whatever ---

We reward them.

.....

Huh? You say ----

How do we reward them????

.....

Because -- a fair number of these freaks do what they do - because they want to be seen as a "hero" -- (anti-hero -- whatever. ) bottom line -- they want to be fucking famous.

......

And -- in the "interest of liberty" --- we paste these fucktards picture all over the place -- and give them exactly what they want.

The "Son of Sam" laws are supposed to prevent criminals from profiting from their crimes -- and it's a good idea. SOMEHOW - we need to find a way to apply these laws -- so when you read about a school being shot up ---- it won't have the name of the assbag who did the shooting up in big lights for everyone to see.
They should die in solitary confinement - with just a number around their neck.
No fame for you, asshole.

Lets figure out a way to take take away their bag of candy.

RE: Let's Apply the Son of Sam Laws.
Part of the reason I curate my own news on social media, is precisely due to this reality. Most outlets make it difficult to avoid the glorification of these monsters.

One YouTube personality I'd like to commend is Philip DeFranco. Whenever some crazed lunatic commits attention seeking atrocities, his policy is not to show photographs or refer to them by name in his coverage.

Though some may view that as a small gesture, if enough people adopt that policy when covering news, the soapbox for these miscreants becomes less effective.

RE: Let's Apply the Son of Sam Laws.
I've often thought it might be possible to do it in the courts......

When one of these cretins gets hauled in - they could have a 48 hour news blackout -- and they could have a court hearing to adjudicate the guy's rights away....

I'm in favor of legally changing their name to "Criminal Number 108323" or something along those lines -- and force them to wear a blackout hood....

These bastards should be denied ANY fame.

Measures like that could definitely be an effective part of judicial proceedings. And the trickle down effect would be an indirect increase in journalistic integrity.

So I think to myself, what a wonderful world

I had almost the exact same idea myself. So, of course, I think this is brilliant.

RE: Let's Apply the Son of Sam Laws.
If just one of the major news networks would adopt as a policy to deny these psychos their "15 minutes[weeks] of fame" it would be a definite improvement. They might even gain some major ratings boost, and find it lucrative to break the media circus chain.

The transparency of the judicial system is necessary to prevent secret arrests, secret trials, secret executions.

Given the alternative a overly invasive media is by far the lesser evil.

I agree that we can't form up kangaroo courts and gestapo tactics.....

But...

We're not talking about normal people. We're talking about those monsters that abandon their humanity and go on killing sprees for the fun of it. These cretins will get their day in court (not that they really should --- a "hail of gunfire" is my preferred outcome) -- they just shouldn't get famous from their misdeeds.

Once they are carted away to a MAX prison, any "fame" is forgotten along wirh them.
Without googling, can you name Tim McVeigh's accomplice who is rotting in his MAX cell?

I can. But only because my friend lived across the street from the fucking idiot.
