    It seems to me that the recent trend in spree shootings is indicative of some sort of civil strife and unrest manifesting itself. This isn`t normal stuff.

    "called it too soon"
    "Looks like they spoke too soon"

    @andrew155--it seems to me that the recent trend in "spree shootings" is indicative of how famous the batman shooting got. The media loves nothing more than a good tragedy to ride out.

    Remember the "zombie breakout" earlier this summer? Same thing. Big story breaks, then the news dredges up any remotely similar story to nab viewers.

    DrProfessor, that`s true. The media has been ginning this all up. For example, outside my apartment a while back there was a triple homicide - out on the street. There were very few reports on it. It wasn`t an exciting story - probably because it was just another 3 gangsters who got killed.

    But what annoys me most about the media reports is when they say "semi-automatic pistol". It`s like....duh?

    Apparently they missed the shooting at the Empire State Building. Fail. But it`s the Onion, fail is expected.
