How to motivate a psychopath

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We’ll probably never know what combination of mental illness, parental neglect, substance abuse, etc, etc, motivated that wretched loser to mow down a couple of dozen pedestrians in Toronto last month. We can only speculate.

And that’s what the Sunday Star did this week. He got his name splashed all over the front page by feature writer Amy Dempsey, and then got two more pages inside the first section.

Yup, whatever else he may be, he’s not a nobody anymore. Canada’s most popular Sunday paper made sure of that!

News value? Zilch.

Message to other budding mass murderers seething with resentment against everything and everybody? Just do it; uncork your wildest murderous fantasies and we’ll do our level best to make you famous. We’ll track down every friend and relative and former classmate and get them to talk talk talk, and it’ll be all about you you you. Sure, you’ll spend the rest of your life in jail, but your name will be a household word!

That may not be responsible journalism, but at least it’ll give the circulation numbers a brief boost.
