Trial by Media

The effort to get Madeleine returned safely has gone to the top with Brown offering his help. Already we have the well established trial by media underway with the arrest of Robert Murat anyone who knows me will I hope agree when I suggest that this person is hanged instantly. The whole affair is starting to resemble an episode of Brass Eye with yellow ribbons now being touted by MP’s eager to show they are involved in catching Madeleine’s abductees.Of course this is a horrible thing to have happened and I don’t want to detract from that, but has anyone ever considered that the media hype & attention may actually encourage people to commit these hideous acts? Take for instance the growing trend of school shootings in
America, Cho Seung-hui actually recorded his own twisted press release for the hungry media. I’m not sure what we could do to prevent this, perhaps the identities of killers could be made confidential.
