    “If you DON’T want to propagate more 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 and NOT to make the killer some kind of anti-hero. DO localize this story to the affected community—and as boring as possible in every other market. “ And don’t invite politicians to the memorial services, don’t ask politicians to comment, and don’t provide coverage to politicians’ related “resolutions”. http://youtu.be/PezlFNTGWv4

      I condemn the legislators who are currently scratching their heads to think about how they can pass even more legislation…..and how they will be able to blame the gun…not the shooter for this horrific crime. I condemn the media for continuing to not challenge the left on their factless nonsense. Theres no debate (except in the minds of the left) – the children were murdered by a mad man….not a gun (because the guy who did the very same thing in China used a knife) – they always find a way….but rather than report the news – you guys print it like this new novel approach to solving violence and insane acts – why not bring up the fact that if this guy lived….the left got rid of the death penalty – against Dr Petits objections…this state is HORRIBLE

      Agreed – and watch as our worthless legislators scramble to pass more laws in an effort to protect us (I wonder how they can protect us against a guy who drives his car into a large crowd of people – you outlaw trucks of course….who needs a huge 4×4 anyway??)
