That's horrible! These people are in my prayers with those from Sandy Hook as well. At least a policeman stopped him before things got worse.

Another nut encouraged by the media to gain fame.

At least they have security and police on hand at hospitals.

I wonder how many people died at that hospital from non gun related injuries... Sadly that will never make the news!

HEY HEY!!! Want to be famous?!!! Want to go down in history?!!!! Just shoot some people!!! The media will take care of the fame part!!!!

Morgan Freeman's statement about these random shootings....

"You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why.

It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are ho
usehold names, but do you kn
ow the name of a single victim of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem."

The news policy should be to report the incident, show a blacked out picture of the shooter, and call him an impotent pedophile. He has no name, just impotent pedophile 1.

'Here is a blacked out box of the impotent pedophile who shot a place today.'
He will be buried in a prison cemetery with 'impotent pedophile' as his headstone.

See how many of these glory hounds try to emulate that.
