One constant in shootings is media coverage

December 21, 2012
The Alpena News

The single, most reoccuring element in the shootings and other acts of mass violence is the unending hours and many forms of media coverage that encourages the perpetrators of such events.

The greater and more horrific the kill - the greater the perpetrators' media presence and the longer their attacks will be felt. And, the media frenzy grows and continues to feed this very act.

The pain and the suffering are real and can not be diminished, but here is one element that must be mitigated if we wish to influence other acts of future violence.
