Media: STOP repeating his name . . . STOP showing his image!!!

I don't want to hear that cowardly piece of shit's name repeated over and over again in the media. I don't want to see his photo plastered on the cover of every newspaper and on every news website. I don't want to give him any recognition for the vile, cowardly act he committed today.

I get it that people will want to know his background to try to understand how this lowly worm came to such a point in his life that he thought murdering the most innocent and defenseless among us was the right course of action.

But, to all members of the media, STOP repeating his name . . . STOP showing his image!!! He does not deserve to be recognized as anything other than 'that cowardly piece of shit who murdered defenseless, innocent children!'

But the name, and when they get a correct photo, part of the story.

It is part of the where's what, who, why and when of a breaking news story.

Or you telling me they should not do that?

Oh and the OP said NOT show you a photo, or tell you the name. That means not telling you the who.

NO name will be spoken, no manifest will be broadcast, no videos will be played, erase them from the face of time,

All details will be preserved until after the case is settled and closed either by Law enforcement or criminal procedures.

No trial by media.

No books, no infamy.

They are nothing.

They are shit cowards.

Brains preserved for research.

Footprints and patterns will be used for profile of other potential nuts.

These murderers want to gain the fame, in death, that they couldn't get in life. Eliminate the notoriety and I think there will be fewer of this type of incident. If people know they won't become famous this way, they won't be as eager to do it.
