You make a good point. I've often thought that there should be some sort of national/international policy or law that prohibits any mention of the perps in these terroristic attacks on innocent people. I also know that it will never happen because of the new YouTube-world in which we live today. So hang on to your hats/heads folks because it is only going to get worse. A sad fact in the drive-by world...
There is ways to curb these televised acts even on youtube, just ask the Execs at Yahoo, or take notes from Bush on his dealings with privacy. The sad truth is there is no way to really stop people like this or monitor people like this.
There is a lot of mentally ill people out their of whom don't even know their mentally ill. We all have the power to take lives, but it is the mind state of reasoning that we don't. Loose that state of thinking and include depression and their you have it. Gun laws will not work and never worked, so we have to skip that resolution. If any body wants a gun they can get one.
We live in a time where we have to be skeptical every where we go, judging the man or women sitting next to us, looking over our shoulders at every clink, clank and bang. I think the media should focus more on how one can save them selves or better public training on what to do in the event you find your self in a situation like the one at the Mall, were that kid shot a lady right next to him, or the snipers in Taxes.
In my prospective it all falls under terrorism whether domestic or abroad. I also think that security should be beefed up, especially around the holidays because its this time where depression is at its strongest do to the way we as Americans say how holidays should be done.
I watched a commercial the other day and it basicly said if you don't shop at Walmart your not treating your love ones right. If your not buying things for your family your not right. We as Americans continue to pump this false way of living onto to a society in War, domestic financial ruin, and a very poor housing market.
If anything, there should be commercials on how to save money not spend it, and self motivating commercials on how not to feel bad around the holidays.
