I do wish the media would not even print the names of the perpetrators in these cases, since a large part of the motivation is to go out in a blaze of "glory" and be famous.
I could not agree more. Let him be mourned by his close ones, but let us remember only the victims and not the perpetrator. The media attention these types get fuels copy cat crimes of similar nature. This was very obviously a case of someone wanting attention, if he couldn't get positive attention he would go for negative attention. He was someone who adopted extreme viewpoints just so he could revel in the outrage his statements caused in class and on the Internet. He was also completely egoistic, if he wasn't happy, everybody must suffer. And finally he was a coward, for he did not want to face the consequences of his actions, defend his so-called ideals, why his victims did not deserve to live. He was a very disturbed young man of which there are very many in the world today.
I wonder what triggered him. He became a member of a shooting club three weeks ago, apparently only so that he could obtain a gun license and buy a gun, he spent maybe two weeks practising and nobody noticed anything more than that he was withdrawn (which is a trait of all Finns, so hardly something alarming).
Some people who are unhappy in highschool go on to take a modest job and come up with the relativity theory in their spare time, but of course it is a lot easier to gain fame by buying a gun and killing indiscriminately. These people should not be given any media attention.
