    I am happy that you keep the public informed but please stop using his name and call him what he really is, the shooter. By using his name you are giving him the attention he wanted DO NOT give it to him, do not give anyone like him the satisfaction of being remembered we should forget them but remember the victims.

    Stop memorializing this person, stop using his name, stop making excuses for what he did. He was not a kid, he was 20 old enough to know storming a school and killing innocent babies was wrong. The media is giving this coward exactly what he wants daily reports on HIM. Enough with him, he is a murder that simple.

    This is another story about a perfectly good white boy who threw his life away.
    What a beautiful world we live in.
