RE: Today’s events in Colorado
As with everything else in this culture, the response to this event will be completely out of proportion with the reality of the situation. The media’s continued pornographic reporting style on tragedies of this nature only serve to feed into the fear and paranoia that have our population in a stranglehold. The theater is not responsible. The movie is not responsible. Guns are not responsible. The man that pulled the trigger is responsible, and only him. He should pay the penalty for his actions with extreme prejudice, but the blame is solely his. What has changed in this country that not only can we not accept responsibility for our own actions, but we also seem afraid to make criminals and nuts take responsibility for theirs?
