Of the various factors involved in the V Tech massacre
"3. Avoid the sort of publicity for such events that the perpetrator would have wanted and is likely to encourage copy cats. Fat chance " seems to be the one uniquiely relevant to the modern world.
Our instant worldwide communications system clearly does encourage these killings. The cure of ending it would be far worse than the disease.
However I suggest that in a really healthy society the media would be more interested in the heroism of men like Professor Liviu Librescu,
I can think of no better way to die than respected at 76 saving ones pupil's lives.
It is also worth pointing out that if open borders allowed the killer in they did the same for the Professor.
I do not believe that either of those came here under an open borders policy. Otherwise I agree.
