TURN OFF THE NEWS.......

Morgan Freeman's brilliant take on what happened yesterday :

"You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why.

It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed
people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the k!ller's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the k!ller's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news."

I've always thought the same about these tragic shootings. Nice to see someone with a bigger voice to speak on it.

No, just common sense plus the fact that he is drawing from a first person account of being in the public eye and how some people are sick enough to do anything to attain it. I remember when the Columbine tragedy occurred there was actual people at the college I was attending that was sitting there acting like two sick bastards were "badass" and "fu*king heroes" and the news had them on every channels for weeks on end so think about it like this-if you're of those sick people like this at home watching this unfold and how they literally covering this sick guy's aspect of his life up to that day, that person is actually thinking that doing something like this makes sense because they'll finally make everyone pay attention to them and that they can top that smdh. Plus the media doesn't realize that when you put every aspect of that tragedy out there, how it was done, weapons used, everything that you're basically giving that same sick person the means to plan one of those same tragedies on their own.

Truest sh*t CNN Therapist gun control needs free Obamacare councling.
Fox News Therepist Violent Video Games nobody going to church,
MSNBC some therepist but nothing but anti gun control.

Sad these three seem to focus on why some psychopath would do something that a psychopath would do and not focus on victims. Morgan just telling it like it is.

He didn't say it.

We haven't found any source documenting the attribution of these words to actor Morgan Freeman, so most likely the quote is something that originated elsewhere and was later attributed to Morgan Freeman to lend it a sense of gravitas.

now everyone has a theory

it's a little of everything and involves no easy solutions. but, to be sure, gun control is a problem. can't have 300 million privately owned guns in a country with 300 million people.

dumbest sh*t I've read, thought this n*gga was gonna come spitting knowledge. Like how the 1% who run this world are setting this up to bring in new gun laws coz they've found a new way to make money.

They have to get the people on their side so they hit the nations hearts with something like this. To justify their crude actions
