In general, I don't need to know anything about the guy enough to necessitate him being plastered all over the news. The story is always the same. In this case, he murdered kids and shot himself after; some guy who had repressed anger he needed to get out, or some other stupid emotion, because he felt like he had no control in real life, and then killed himself afterwards so the police/society could not take control back from him. Power fantasies by the inept and disconnected. it's an old story, and it is a pathetic story. I mean, really? Shooting children, because you feel like you're so pathetic and weak you can't even attack other adults?
That's all I need to know about him -- that and how he hurt all these families. He doesn't deserve national attention; the investigators can worry about all the details.
