    Sir, step away from the toolbox!
    I firmly agree with the part I bolded.
    I've seen a news story that researchers said mass killings with a lot of media coverage are often followed by copycat events in the following days or weeks, and I believe it.
    I think the heavy news coverage encourages the nut jobs (emotionally disturbed persons, if you prefer) that commit these terrible acts.

    I've always wondered if all the news coverage of these shooters would start with 'nutjob coward' every time he was mentioned if it would have any chilling affect on future wannabes.

    That actually sounds like a great idea.

    Just watched news report saying that the mother did do the right thing last year. She called LE concerned that her son was going to try to commit “suicide by cop”. They came and removed the only firearm in the house.

    So, another failure in the background system. His problem never reported beyond local department.

    This is getting to be so common maybe the FBI should be banned.

    The timing is very odd. I'll say that.
