    That is why stuff like this happens is because It is not brought to our attention in the first place.

    aint going to catch them all.....there are screwed up ppl in the world and short of locking everyone up in individual cells you will never prevent it.......

    The title of the thread "4 Dead... " That there would be a clue to not read if you didin't want to read / discuss a gruesome event. IMHO one reason our society is screwed up is because there is no meaingful dialogue on important issues. It is either ignored out of apathy, ignorance, media overkill for ratings,... or it is not talked about because it is uncomfortable. Just because a topic is uncomfortable doesn't mean we shouldn't discuss it, in most cases that is exactly why it is so important to talk about it.

    There was actually a newspaper published years ago called The Good News which refused to publish any bad news but it only lasted a few months.

    Here's a very short article:

    One of our local TV networks (WCCO) never does bad or "scary" news stories when kids might be watching at the dinner time broadcasts (5:00 and 6:00).

    Not only my home state, 2 miles away. Also swords, normally my news doesnt do such scary stories when kids could be watching, but yesterday had been talking about this all day. It interrupted the performances of americas got talent, and i ran upstairs and told my dad to turn on the tv.
    THe "scariest" story was a body wrapped in a carpet, unless somethings breaking news. they save it for 10 oclock.

    You mentioned "a body in a carpet" so now you have to sit through an off-topic story...

    I was coming home from work one night and pulled alongside a truck that was all painted up with a mafia guy holding a machine gun and the logo "Godfather's Exterminating". I started thinking that instead of bug killer maybe the truck was full of bodies rolled up in carpets!

    I thought it was really weird when WCCO started announcing that they weren't going to do some stories "because of the children". I think it's totally silly. I was a kid (and I still act like one) but I don't think kids don't need to be "innocent" (ignorant) and hidden from the world. I always watched the news with my parents and/or grandparents even as a little kid. Nobody ever held their hands over my eyes at a shocking sight or shielded my ears from real language. If I had questions about it - which I always did, we'd discuss it.
