Information is a good thing, but there is such a thing as too much. I do not believe any news outlet should have released the video + audio of Cho’s rantings. Especially disturbing to me are the still shots with the gun pointed directly at the camera. How can we look at that image without realizing that very same image was the last thing 32 innocent people ever saw? The families and friends of the victims should never be subjected to this barrage.
How sad that ratings have trumped decency and restraint.
I’m not going to dedicate any more time on this blog to this issue. I will, however, dedicate many hours more on my knees in prayer for those who loved the victims, and for those who loved Cho.
