News Outlets Should Never Show The Face of Mass Murderers.

I feel the media glorifies the bad guy.  Recently in mass violence situations, the media makes a big deal out of who the bad guy is.  Think Las Vegas, Sandy Hook, and Boston Bombings.  They show tons of pictures of the bad guy from all ages, his house, his family his job, everything about him.  I can't help but wonder if we as a country aren't putting it into the minds of individuals, particularly those that may need mental help, that mass violence is a great way to go out of this world and be famous doing it.
I call upon news outlets to only focus on the victims, their families their jobs their stories, hopes and dreams, and leave the bad guy anonymous and alone.
