Should NBC have released the killers video?

    IMO absolutely not. Just another instance of the media not caring about anything or anyone, other than ratings.

    I find myself changing the station everytime they show this freak or start talking about him.


    I want to know the victims. Their families. Thier dreams. Their aspirations.

    I do not with to know anytying at all about the madman that took their lives.

    I see no reason why they shouldn't have. If the press is hiding facts, it's not doing it's job.

    Most definately. Aside from the fact that people have the right to know about him, not releasing them won't do any good while doing so will bring attention to the failure of help for him and maybe alert people to the problem so that future would-be killers will get help.

    The public shouldn't be denied the information....if they request it, they should be granted it. Altho, just posting it without thinking of what could happen from doing so is illogical. Posting it in the news could possibly inspire other disturbed dimwitted people to follow in this maniac's footsteps.

    (Repeating myself) The public shouldn't be denied the information if they request it.

    Why shouldn't this be applied to anything that's questionable?

    Why should the media have to ask for permission from parents, especially since he was a legal adult.

    You said that it could inspire others, so only those that want to read about it should see it.

    A: That's illogical because even then some of the people that will read about it will be those who are thinking of commiting a similar massacre.

    B: It's a slippery slope down to book burning.

    C: Who gets to decide what's questionable?

    That is what I said and I do mean it.

    Everyone watch out! Gavik wants to commit a similar massacre becasue only those that want to read it are those that will commit one. He wants to read it so he is a crazed maniac that is going to kill us all! Keep ur eye on him!

    Get my drift?! Even those that won't commit a similar massacre want to read it (unless you are one and that supports ur claim).

    Did I ever state that people should be denied it and that books should be burned?! Please explain ur benighted thought proccessing.

    Did I ever state it shouldn't be given to the public? So your reason for this interrogation is?!
