    The 24/7 news cycle needs to put the brakes on. Plus it needs to focus on the victims and heroes, not the perps. I'd say no pictures of the shooter and I'm not even sure about using his name. I mean the authorities should release it of course but unless you hear the press conference or happen to read the official press release that should be about the end of it as far as knowing about the shooter and his family.

    We should stop making these people famous (or infamous if you will). That is all on the media. They control this.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
