The Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings are inexplicable, tragic, and horrific. As such, naturally, people search for a culprit. The media, camped out in trucks all around Newtown, Connecticut, working in 24-hour cycles to bring us every detail, is an easy target.A quote attributed to actor Morgan Freeman has gone viral on Facebook. Essentially, someone claiming to be Freeman blames the media for Sandy Hook, claiming the media’s coverage makes the shooter famous and makes more people want to do things like this.
I think the point gained is that when some event happens there are always those individuals who step forward and try to make something out of it. Some fabricate phony quotes, some claim some special knowledge or insight they do not possess just to drive their point across. These people are no better than the members of the Westboro Church who go out of their way to create controversy.
Some do so to muddy the water in case of an investigation. There are a lot of sick peope who will do things like this for their own reasons.
