Gross Glorification…

After the shooting deaths at Virginia Tech. the media has only helped to glorify the gunman. Playing that psychotic tape over and over again. Don’t they realize that is precisely what he wanted them to do? That was the reason why he sent it to them in the first place… so that his face and his words would be smeared all over the television. I am sick of seeing it, I’m sick of hearing his voice and his irrational way of thinking. I heard today on the local news here in Vancouver that NBC was pulling the video and refusing to play it anymore. Bravo to them…. but for the families and students it might have been just a little too soon for it to be aired and now a little too late.

  1. Here in Houston they decided to pull it ONLY after running every chance they got.

    I think that NBC distributed the video sent to them by the killer in some ways makes them A) pimps and B) accessories to the aftermath of this crime.

    I know there’s no legal precedent for that, but there should be. Frankly, I’ve lost a lot of respect for the Peacock Networl. It’s gonna take NBC a while to get back in my good graces.

    Thanks for stopping by and for your comment.

  3. ‘ET’ mentioned last night that they chose not to air the videos either which was pretty surprising for a show that LOVES sensationalized journalism.

  4. Thanks, always good posts on your blog!

  5. I think it’s way past time that we stop preventing the victims from exercising their birthright of arming themselves. Obviously the cops cannot be everywhere and let’s face it, all it would have taken was one, just one individual who was armed and on the spot to stop this tragedy in it’s tracks.

    When is the last time you heard of the lone gunman who entered a police station or a gun store and went into carnage mode as this nut did? It doesn’t happen because we all know those people are armed.

    The first ten amendments were intended as an absolute limit on government and where it may NOT go and when the second is limited illegally by force of law we find ourselves in precisely this situation
