A Canadian news network refuses to broadcast a mass shooter's name | Public Radio International
On June 4, a gunman in Moncton, New Brunswick, killed three Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers and injured two others. Police launched a massive manhunt, eventually capturing their suspect. But after the shooting, the Canadian news outlet Sun News made a decision that might seem surprising. They chose not to broadcast details about the Moncton shooter — not his name, not his photo, no personal details.
There is research from a variety of fields on how media coverage can potentially lead to an increase in violent acts. A study of mass murders in Australia, New Zealand and Britain concluded that shootings happen in clusters, not as individual instances. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has published guidelines on how the media should report on suicides. And sociologist Zeynep Tufekci wrote in The Atlantic that the "tornado of media coverage" may be creating a "vicious cycle of copycat effects similar to those found in teen and other suicides."
Many shooters seem to have a common interest in previous deadly gun attacks. The Sandy Hook shooter had a reported fascination with mass murders, particularly the Columbine school shooting. The two Columbine shooters said they wanted a movie to be made about them one day. And the Santa Barbara shooter posted numerous videos on YouTube, giving his violent and misogynistic missives the potential for a worldwide audience.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
since there was no multiple choice i answered "it was a terrorist act" because by definition it is
but it was also a nut job and it was also a hate crime
