The Question of Censorship and a Stark Reality
I took these pictures a month ago here in Ohio. If the story of child slaughter in Colorado had not received non-stop media coverage, would the Pennsylvania Amish children be alive today? Is it possible to create some legislation that limits the media blitz that could trigger another sick brain? Can you imagine the horror of those last moments in that school ? I'm sick to death of the " if it bleeds it leads" mandate driving the mass-media. If this practice leads to the death of more innocents, perhaps we need guidelines that restrict access to lurid details, photos, and profiles of the perpetrator and his victims. Is it as hopeless as it seems?
