The media has already release his name everywhere. It was a good attempt by the officer to prevent the shooter from getting more attention.

Yea CNN shows the clip of the sheriff making that statement, then cuts to the news anchor: "Well we DO have his name, and here it is! Here's how he stacks up against other mass shootings!" Like a fucking scoreboard. You'd think after that guy shot the news crew on camera they'd have a little more respect, but nope. Still assholes.

Is there a reason they can't make it illegal to report his name? I mean the reason a lot of people do it is to be famous and cause hell. If they knew they would just be known as "that shooter" instead of near glorified for their actions perhaps it would cut down even a little on this nonsense.

It seems like it would be so simple to just make it illegal for public outlets to post name and picture. everything else is fair game, just not his name or face.

I have a hard time thinking people want to shoot up a school to "become famous and cause hell". It makes more sense to me if he was forced to do this so we could have a reason to blame ISIS (who we've been supporting while the rest of the world is fighting them off) and join the world in fighting against ISIS.

Every one of these mass shootings has been consistently linked to a major global political agenda. Charleston shooting, the guy had an Iranian flag on his jacket... Right at the time that Iranian nuke deal was going down.

I never understood why they don't report suicides because they don't want to glamorize suicide, but have no problem with mass shootings. Not that they can't report the shooting, just don't make the shooter infamous.
