I am sure that the perp in this travesty had many grievances against the police. Some of them may even have been legit.
After all, policing in general has been on a steady downhill slide since those far-away days when the local cop was somebody you knew by name when you ran into him at the donut shop.
It's a different world today.
Cops are an easy target for any unhinged psychopath. Any suicidal youth who wants to go out in a blaze of glory can choose the "death by cop" option and rest assured that the media will honour him with posthumous notoriety.
That's why I think it would be a good idea if the news business kept the names of these mass killers out of the media.
It will rob the aspiring psychopaths of their last chance at fame.
Knowing they won't be famous in death could be enough to deter at least some of them from their grotesque ambitions.
