An answer to one of my Homicide Exam Questions

The idea that a mass or spree killing is a random act is often exploited by the media to create a moral panic. Explain this with an answer that makes no less than three relevant points.

I don’t always find that these are considered random acts.

Eric and Dylan lashed out because of years of bullying and trying to be included. Violence in the media also spurred them on, the need to control, enact a revenge that they could not be punished for (by ending their lives).

The media loves raw fear, raw emotions, exploiting human tragedy and getting the latest gossip about who did what and where and how gruesome it was.

If the media was offered the crime scene photos of the Sandy Hook Massacre, and all those little children’s autopsy photos; A: they’d be published and re-touched and re-published and re-distributed world wide because the world loves it gore and its tragedy and the taboo/opportunity of looking at slaughtered Caucasian American children is like a meaty bone to the pitbull.

and B: There would be mass lawsuits and outrage from a lot of other people who find the content of such images as disgusting as an old man having intercourse with his baby daughter whom he fathered with his sister. *shudders*

Press, tabloids, internet LOVE tragedy. They want the tears, the blood, the guts. To them it is an erotic and explosively orgasmic sensation of bliss and cash. Its like they have a necrophiliac fetish for the tragedies of the world. In truth, moral panic is nothing to them, its an opportunity to cash in on other’s fear and vulnerability: the realization that yeah, we aren’t going to live forever.
