    It's really sad how this has become more frequent in all levels of the education system....I don't think the killers name should ever be released through the media.....that only sensationalizes the murders and makes the killers infamous and almost like a role model to some sick minded individuals..... they can and should report on the tragic event but should concentrate more on the victims and on the devastation it impacts on people.... I have absolutely no sympathy for those who believe they can solve their problems with a gun.....

    Let me guess the coward killed himself afterwards.

    The thing I don't get the most is why are most of these shootings all happening at schools of some sort.

    They shouldn't report these anymore.
    It's just someone shooting other people.
    It happens more on the street...but you don't see big nation-wide coverage of all the shootings that occur outside of schools or places of business.

    They're creating a hysteria.
    Here in Seattle, a guy came in and shot the owner of a restaurant and some patrons just last week.
    Will it be on CNN?
    No.

    I knew this guy in a daycare home who got shot multiple times by gang members. No news about it whatsoever.

    That's so unoriginal. That's like blaming Marilyn Manson and ICP. ;)

    They hardly ever occur at schools compared to all the other locations.

    • SEATTLE – One person is dead and five others have been injured in a shooting at the Jewish Federation at 2031 Third Ave. in downtown Seattle.


    • SEATTLE -- A gunman opened fire Saturday morning in a Capitol Hill home occupied by 20 young partygoers



    • At about 4:30 a.m. Sunday someone fired a gunshot through a window of the house in the 14300 block of 20th Avenue Northeast. The bullet from a small-caliber handgun went through the window, penetrated a wall and struck Seifu, 26, in the back of the head as he sat on a couch


    • A gunman opened fire at a city council meeting in this St. Louis suburb Thursday night, hitting several people, including the mayor...


    • CARNATION, Wash. - Six people, likely three generations of a family, were found dead yesterday at a rural property east of Seattle



    • A Seattle man was charged Tuesday with fatally shooting the owner of a well-known Central Area restaurant during a shooting spree a week ago.


    • A man accused of shooting six people at a Tacoma, Washington, shopping mall surrendered to police after a three-hour hostage standoff Sunday afternoon, authorities said.




    Schools aren't the issue. People get shot all over. It doesn't hurt any less if it happens in a restaurant, or at your house, or in a parking lot, or at the mall.

    I never said it was any less hurtful or less of an important matter when people are getting killed in other places.

    It's just like you mentioned earlier they need to either stop focusing on these altogether or show the non school related incidents on the news as well.
