This tragedy is not entertainment.
These are lives that were ended violently and prematurely. We should not be watching this as entertainment. This is not who we are or who we should aim to be as a country.
With the tragedy in Las Vegas resounding throughout the news media today, please be civil with one another. There are conversations that need to be had in light of this mass shooting. Be thoughtful.
It’s an awful tragedy, and we may never know the reason. Don’t share articles from unknown sources and rampant speculation on social media. Whether you realize it or not, you may actually be harming people that have been personally touched by this tragedy by spreading false information. Let law enforcement do their job. The details will come out in time.
Don’t turn on the TV and news unless you need to. There is no need for you to watch or see what they’re showing on TV. The news is showing around the clock coverage on every channel, with relatively no new information. As the investigation is done by law enforcement, information will be provided as it comes and watching the news will do nothing but harm you and cause you anxiety. It’s just as bad as gawking at a traffic accident on the side of the road.
