Do we give killers too much publicity?

I think it's safe to say we do. I woke up at 2 a.m. to a raging storm, and after I couldn't go back to sleep, I turned on my Television. There was a documentary about Ted Bundy on, which was followed by another documentary about the "Son of Sam" killings in New York. These people are almost celebrities. Jack the Ripper, though long deceased, is like a living legend. His name will never die. When you watch court cases with these people, they're smiling. They're content. Look at the Batman premiere killer. When eh doesn't looks like he's high on some kind of magical dingelberries, he's smiling. He's on TV!

The line from Pirates of the Caribbean sums it up better than anything:
"You are without a doubt the worst pirate I've ever heard of!"
"...but you have heard of me."

But you have heard of them.

You have heard of Ted Bundy. You have heard of the Batman Killer. You have heard of the killer of Sandy Hook. They wanted attention. They got it and then some.

I'm not saying people shouldn't hear about these things ever, but I truly think we give them way too much publicity, both on the news and otherwise.

I'm guessing this is in relation to the new school shooting in Arizona. I think they should treat them like any other crime. When did everything on the news become so bleak anyway? I'm pretty sure people don't sit down in front of their TV waiting for the 10pm news thinking "I wonder who died today" or "I can't wait to see if anyone's murdered a load of kids". Then again, some people probably do.

I agree. While I think it's a good idea to inform us about these killers(as in what they did) and inform us of where they are(if they're still alive), at one point they have to pull the plug, we don't need to know about their f***ing life's story and interests

What Megas said.
A major reason that the majority of these lowlives do what they do is because they want to leave some sort of legacy behind. In a twisted way, we're putting them on a pedestal of sorts. It's almost as though we're inviting other potential killers to "break the record."

I agree. People know about the killer more than about those who were killed. It's sad. The victims should get more publicity than the person responsible. I think this is why people do horrible things like shoot up elementary schools, to see how much they can get their face on T.V. I saw this somewhere before, I can't remember who said it, but I read that the person would rather be noticed as a horrible monster than die a sad nobody...maybe the reason why they try to do stuff like this. There's something seriously wrong with that. People that desperate for attention need help, and we can fix the problem by not publicizing horrible criminals.

People wouldn't be this way if we all just treated each other with true respect. If their parents are treating them horribly, don't leave them alone. Go over and help the dude/gal. Just hang with them. Make them feel like somebody.

I think having it on the news is fine, but they should definitely leave out the killer's name. Just say that some mentally deranged person murdered a bunch of people, and leave it at that.

The worst part about the Sandy Hook shooting, is that the media decided it would be a great idea to put the shooter's Facebook page's link on the articles. Too bad they had the wrong person's Facebook, and had given out the Shooter's brother's Facebook. From there, they blamed the shooting on Mass Effect, because his brother liked it on Facebook. And then he had to delete his account, because he was getting a shitstorm of messages telling him that he was going to burn in hell for killing all those children, because the media ****ed up.

That and bring back the death penalty and make it less humane. And do it immediately instead of having them sit on death row for years and years while tax dollars continue to pay for their existence.
Sadistic and evil as that may sound, it sure would discourage other scum from doing the same.
