They will end when people stop sensationalizing these senseless acts , by attempting to draw attention to themselves and their ability to repeat news , readily available on known media sites.
Seems the less interesting someone is, the more they tend to focus on things that have nothing to do with them and are easily copied and pasted to share.
In fact they become part of the media propaganda machine. Peter Pan syndrome at work
Well, I see the present development in racial tensions in America escalating partly because of the fear among all segments of society that resulted from the rampant escalation of the ownership and frequent use of guns and firearms in the country, whether legal or illegal. This fear has now morphed into a mentality of "shoot first, think later" among the people. If I were living in America today, I would feel the same way. But of course the U.S. Constitution at present guarantees the freedom to own guns and firearms, and this is truly and totally wrong. But politicians in the country are so corrupt they they just turn the other way when so many incidents have already happened, and they continue to refuse to face reality and correct the situation. I am glad that there is strict control on gun ownership in Canada today, but who know what will happen in the future!
"This fear has now morphed into a mentality of "shoot first, think later" among the people. If I were living in America today, I would feel the same way."
And I believe someone like Ppan would feel that way. Fortunately, the vast majority of Americans don't think like this.
As a 52-year-old American, the only person I've known to have been murdered was a dear friend of my family. His name was Ambrose Akiwenzie. He is pictured below, standing fifth from the left, holding a trumpet. The picture was probably taken before I was born, but I was in my late teens when he was killed. He and his killer were Canadians, and it happened in Ontario.

No, they maybe giggle but what really gets their jollies off is sending their arms shipments to other countries to fight wars. You know, bulk orders.
Canada does it too: http://thetyee.ca/Opinion/2015/01/23/Canada-Saudi-Arabia-Weapons-Deal/
