A SHOOTING JUST HAPPENED A FEW MINUTES AGO AT MY SCHOOL!
I just turned on channel two. I was watching a cable channel, then my soap was about to come on so I switched the channel and there's a special report. They were talking about a school shooting. I admit my first reaction was, "OH no! Not ANOTHER one!" Then I saw that it was Lone Star Community College. That's the college I went to! It's not even far from my home.
I don't know yet how many people have been injured or shot, but they just caught one suspect and one is still supposedly on the loose. WTF is this world coming to! This seems to happen somewhere every freaking week! What, people see this on the news, and they think, "Cool! I think I'll do that too!" ???
What needs to happen is the news shows need to stop making these lunatics famous. That's why they do it. They see how famous other people have gotten from this, and don't care if it's negative attention or positive, they just crave that same national attention so they go copycat so they can be splashed over the news too. I say, do NOT even tell us or show us the person who did it. I don't want to hear or know his name or his face. Maybe then this will stop being such a trend.
