Littleton :: essays research papers
It seems for the past week or so, the entire ground (yes, world, when I was in Spain they showed news coverage of this 24/7 too) has been shaken up by the drill shootings in Littleton, CO (I think thats the reference of the town, though dont hold me to that). What amazes me about this story is not the fact that both quite a little went into a school and shot a bunch of people (apparently this is the seventh in-school multiple homicide in teh past 18 months), its the fact that the media has abandoned extensive coverage this, and has exploited it for all its worth. I suppose with the impeachment psychometric test over and done with, and the only matter remaining of that issue is a few jokes, the media needs something new to pounce on and stir a dollar off of. And they have done just that. E trulywhere I turn someone is talking about how terrible this tragedy is. Dont drive me wrong, I think the senseless come outing of people, which is pretty much what happened in this ca se, is wrong. The two boys who did this probably wanted to kill themselves, and figured theyd make as big of an exit as possible, and in doing that, they have succeeded. Thats not the thing that really b some others me though, its the fact that a nation handle America (and other nations too, most of my knowledge of what happened came from a British paper) can exploit something like this, and the masses can swallow it up. But I suppose it makes estimable news. Who is the sicker person in this case? The nazi boy who goes into a school, kills about ten people or so, or the average American who buys the publisher with the headline of "NEO NAZI MASSACRES INNOCENT TEENS IN SCHOOL"? The boys who did this knew very well that if they were to pull off something like this, they would have the entire expanse (and others) all wrapped up in it. If they seriously wanted to kill people, and nothing else, they would have just blown up the entire school with everyone in it. But they didnt , and they have gotten everyone all caught up in the story. Ive seen it depict as "one of the worst tragedies in history". The people that make those statements have swallowed this lie hook, line, and sinker.
