According to _Mass Shootings and the Media Contagion Effect_ by Jennifer Johnson and Andrew Joy of Western New Mexico University, published by the American Psychological Association in 2016, those who engage in rampage shootings often have power and revenge fantasies, and seeing other rampage shooters become famous thanks to media coverage encourages emulation. While things like mental illness and bullying play a role, Johnson and Joy argue, “identification with prior mass shooters made famous by extensive media coverage, including names, faces, writings, and detailed accounts of their lives and backgrounds, is a more powerful push toward violence than mental health status or even access to guns.” They also point out that it's a popular trend among rampage shooters to send messages and photos of themselves directly to the news media.
FYI the next school shooter will likely watch this video right here on YouTube, seeing what he/she will become. I wish news outlets wouldn't romanticize infamy like this.

Youtube should take this off trending. Very irresponsible. Videos like this that give infamy to the shooter only increase school shootings by inspiring more.

Thank you for focusing attention on this animal instead of the victims. You're great and that's why you're top in the news game.

Shame on CNN man, shame on all these news networks. Parents have lost their children and you glorify their killer by covering it. After the Paris terror attacks European media stopped covering the lives of perpetrators of terrorist attacks. This strategy should implemented with regard to spree killings here in America. Way too often these killers are portrayed as sympathetic or put upon. If you kill children, you are undeserving of sympathy, period. Pagourtzis was not some tragic outsider who couldn’t find his way, he was Khalid Sheik Mohammed: the perpetrator of an unspeakable crime against the American people, totally unworthy of glory or sympathy.

I know this isn't the time or place but, why does he have a creeper mug? IS HE A CREEPER MURDERER?
Matthew Lang
HOW DARE YOU! I hope you realize that when you put the face of the shooter out there you're no worse than the people who commit these crimes in fact by putting the face of the shooter out there you are putting these people on a peadastole and getting the insane ideas of these crimes into the heads of young Americans
STOP covering details of who, what, how of these incidents, it only educates the next wanna be shooter of what to do and not do to increase carnage. >:(
Chris Beach
I hate to say it, but if all these news stations would stop covering these School shootings. Then I would about guarantee that we would have less and less of them, they sit an talk about them months on end and these kids gets ideas in their heads. I'm guessing back before tv existed that there were hardly any school shootings at all. The world we are living in is being torn apart my race, politics,and social media. It will only keep getting worse. The big problem is there is nothing at this point anyone can do to stop it... If a person wants a gun they'll get a gun, gun control isn't the answer.

Can we not show these monsters faces. It only encourages more people to do this.
quiet me
If these gun blaring students were bullied, the bullies and their parents should be thoroughly investigated and punished. Including witnesses that can testify against school officials that didn't do nothing with the bullies. The schools should be shut down until they get rid of bullying and until they get security guards and metal detectors in every single school. Think about it ONLY all this can get rid of the violence. Also think about it, plenty of people are denied a job everyday. It would give people that want to work ,a job. Keeping schools safe and giving people jobs. I would not send your kids to school until it happens. If I was harassed and bullied at school I wouldn't go no more. It's not worth the abuse. They make it mandatory for your kids to go to school but they don't make it mandatory to stop bullies. You can't go to school and be bullied too. It's not going to work. Schools and parents need to step up.

The comment section is cancer. I've never felt so bad after reading comment section
you and i are like my buttcheeks after all the shit that goes between us we always get back together
why do school shooters always look like school shooters EDIT: these comments under this thread are atrocious, i wasn't talking about their race.
T.J. Gregory
If he were from the middle east, he would have been on a watch list a long time ago, but sadly since he is Caucasian everyone simply ignores him. There was plenty there to begin to investigate this poor kid.
These white people be shootin everythin up all the time bruh

Well, crap now there's gonna be protests to take away guns. 30 years ago shcool shootings were not as easy to find out about but now with 50 differant channel 7's It spreads like fire in an Arizona feild.
Brandon Reck
After a bit of research, I found a bit of info about the whole situation: -The shooter was Greek. Edit: No shit people, Greek = white (unfortunately) -He stole a shotgun and revolver from his father, the father claims he didn’t know until the shooting occurred. -CNN, once again, plasters the face of the killer not only for views, but they’re giving what he most likely wanted: publicity/short fame before trial. This then starts a “monkey see monkey do” effect. -One of the deaths was a 16 year old girl who reportingly denied to be the shooters girlfriend after he asked her out. She was one of the first victims, as she was in the art room, which was one of the first rooms he entered. This also could have been a motive. -He hid explosives around the school prior to the shooting, meaning that he had more planned out, but luckily they were not detonated and were disarmed.
Think About It
Don't give to much details about this shooter, or else it will encourage others that they will get the same fame and attention out of wrong doings.

Stop posting shooters faces and sharing their name
Quit making them famous. You're part of the problem.
More Big Pharma! The damage from Big Pharma in the U.S.A. can't be fixed!

The next insane murderer that wants attention or too spread their insane message will see that when this shooter killed kids at a school their name, ideas, social media, writings, music etc... Were plastered all over the news and trending pages everywhere..further incentivizing the next perpetrator to plan or carry out their plans. Sad CNN continues to do this seeing that it's obvious they are contributing to this more than helping. It is certainly possible to cover this without sharing the shooters photos, messages, social info etc. Very ironic they will be quick to blame NRA or uplift voices that blame NRA for these shootings ,but will not adjust their own coverage for the same motives they attribute to the NRA...more money. Hmm feels ironic is CNN putting money over kids lives by doing this ? I say yes.
Jordan Harris
Put God back in schools , watch the change.
Prince Rupert
Get his face off the thumbnail! You are giving him exactly what he wants!
"Typical Teen" Wtf this boi wore a trenchcoat with nazi pins everyday
Yes. Keep posting their faces all over the place. Making them martyrs. You're part of the problem, news. But luckily for you, the more tragedies that happen, the more views and clicks you get.
Ethan Chen
Please stop showing the shooters face 😩
Buy showing his face, saying his name, and talking about his life, you are giving him exactly what he wanted. By doing so, you are encouraging the next school shooter as well. You should be ashamed.
A School Shooter
Good, Good....
There terrorist, and nothing more
Logan’s Iife
Was he Obsessed with columbine or something I mean Eric and Dylan was in the Trenchcoat mafia and I’m pretty sure one of the shooters was wearing a born to kill shirt
Youre creating possible copycats by posting his picture everywhere idiots
Dis One
Thanks to bullshit in its purest form CNN shooters are celebrities and therefore inspire many more lone wolf's no one watches TV anymore so reporting tragedies is the only wasy this sorry excuse for a News outlet
Skullbelly Orr
4% of teachers step in when witnessing or hearing about students getting bullied, *THE SCHOOL SYSTEM IS THE PROBLEM.* Not guns, video games, movies, or books.
I understand this is a serious video but Who else noticed they said a “Nazi symbol” and there was just a Iron cross
HeyItsMaddy x
This was by our school my teacher non stoped talked about it. Rest In Peace to the ones who died they didn’t deserve it. 🙏🏽✨♥️

That boy is the Devil
Yeah, keep on talking. Right about a week or so, they gonna drop this story and move on. So will the rest of the society. No change, no action. Rinse and repeat.

Why are people trying to figure out if he's white? Regardless, he killed many innocent people
user blk
I actually wanted to know if they caught the shooter alive because if he were black will he be alive now? Just thinking how many black school shooters are alive after the shooting. We're 21 weeks into 2018, and there have already been 23 school shootings where someone was hurt or killed. That averages out to more than 1 shooting a week. Could the U.S.A. implode within with a civil war rather than worrying about ISIS, Russia, China, North Korea etc?
Omg I'm so scared. My friend's long lost brother's daughters friend's grandpa's grand daughter's teacher went there. It could have been meeeeee.

Not surprised, Everybody is always on edge in highschool now. Always the whites shooting up places Which I don't understand why, I also love how white supremisist use old statistics but refuse to mention that white on white crime is four times as much as black on black crime.https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2017/10/23/white-supremacists-favorite-myths-about-black-crime-rates-take-another-hit-bjs-study.

Hidden under trench coat? So....the salsa with two simple words. METAL DETECTOR!!
Always White, cause they ain't right, never Black, cause they know we hit back!
And people still wanting to go to live to that country. Racism, hatred, shootings. Thats the US culture now
whoo else
Its never gonna change until white folks acknowledge the fact that their kids are the main ones doing stuff like this.
Bumpier bag
Nazi and communist Russia images is a sign btw... makes me laugh so hard
Stop giving his face air time. Popularizing his image does nothing productive and provides the recognition he was looking for.
The problem isn’t with guns, it’s with the people.
Alexander Cooney
i was in 6th grade during colombine.. Its happening every week it seems now.. that kid doesnt even have the crazy eyes. i think people are going down some weird rabbit holes on the internet and just becoming wild extremists. I think social media accounts for a large part of this stuff, kids probably feel theyll never get away from their embarressing high school self.. sorry about all the grammer spelling/ got anasthesia at the dr. today and im couch locked.

Seriously that idiotic look on his face alone wasn't a fucking clue. Now I know Its "profiling" but really was not one kid in that school suspicious even a little?
sToP pOsTiNG tHE sHoOTeR fAcE. Wow the absolute hypocrisy is mad, if this was someone with brown skin and was Muslim, Mann you would have called him every name under the sun, asking for deportation and all sorts but because it’s a white man, don’t show his face we don’t want people to think we commit horrible crimes. Don’t expose our evil shh.
