Yeah within the media wake of every mass shooting there's always a string of copycats that's set off.
They got it all wrong too, like here recently they're all like, "don't name the mass shooter"... but that just makes it worse. Nothing breeds devotion better than infamy. The thing that they love, both shooter and fan alike is the emotional fallout.
When they start interviewing the family, the relatives, the friends, etc, etc... that's what they want the most, that's what they crave. Inflicting the highest level of emotional response across the widest scope. When the little sociopathic fantards see all that emotional feedback, often over exaggerated to the extreme by the media, they become increasingly addicted to the point of losing themselves in the want to become a weapon of mass emotional destruction.
They don't care about fame, they don't care if people know their name, they don't even care about killing people... all they care about is the emotional devastation, the chance to impact the lives of as many other people as possible, in the shortest amount of time, with the greatest level of damage... and the media, the media ALWAYS delivers.
Yes, erectile dysfunction, that is exactly what I meant.
(not really, but it's funnier that way)
