School shootings are fueled by the attention they get, instead of simply killing themselves, some want the world to stop what they're doing and pay attention to them, even if they're dead. There is little we can do to stop this chain of events, amirite?

They go into depth about the shooter in the media because it's interesting. But do you think your average American's deep understanding of the killers psychology will lead to anything productive?

When they report the news, they can concentrate on the victims and not on shooter. It could also be a regular story, rather than receiving such high coverage.

News wouldn't cooperate, people like hearing about the shooter, it's a dramatic story. I don't know what anyone could actually do to get all the news programs on the same page.
