The Nebraska Mall MassacreA nineteen-year old kills eight people and himself in another senseless shooting spree:
OMAHA, Nebraska (Reuters) - A 19-year-old man killed eight people and then himself with an assault rifle at a busy mall in Omaha on Wednesday, sending terrified workers and Christmas shoppers scrambling for cover.I think it's time the media collectively change its policy when reporting these tragedies. Instead of prominently featuring the perpetrator, they should focus more on the victims and the senseless loss of life. Instead of sensationalizing the coverage, they should send the message that if you massacre people, we will bury you in obscurity instead of helping you get(in)famous. Madness like this shouldn't be rewarded with notoriety.
