  1. The Rufus Wainwright video is already gone. Thanks, YouTube.

  2. The VT shooter removed the serial numbers from his weapons, carried no identification and shot himself in the face probably to delay his own identification before his videos could be received by NBC. He was determined to identify himself on his own terms.

    By airing this disturbed young man's incoherentt ramblings, the media is giving him in death EXACTLY what he wanted. The families of the victims are outraged at the media outlets for this choice and I don't blame them.

    The excuse given by the media is that this will give us some insight into why he did this.

    Um, I think we already know why. DISTURBED. End of story.

    I'm more interested in knowing why a person with his kind of record of mental illness was allowed to continue going to VT even when he refused to get treatment for his illness.

  3. I agree Mark M, THAT should be the number one question being asked right now.

  4. "By airing this disturbed young man's incoherentt ramblings, the media is giving him in death EXACTLY what he wanted."

    Loren Coleman, author of the book The Copycat Effect about mass shootings, not only predicted a new "event" on March 28th for April-May this year but has been saying exactly that about media saturation making events like this more likely. He's studied this problem in depth, it's a shame more people don't seem to be paying attention to his warnings:

  5. actually, the number one question that should be asked right now is why are guns so available in America... why was he able to purchase firearms in the first place... and not just one, but several.
    that's the numero uno issue avoided by the media.

  6. And let's keep in mind that he had a court order on his record indicating mental illness. It either did not show up on the background check, or was not cause to restrict him from purchasing the handguns. Easy indeed.
