Sign the Petition to

Untied States Congress

Please sign this if you agree a law should be passed to suppress the names and pictures of the crazy people committing these God awful crimes. With all the recent shootings, who agrees that there should be a law created to stop the media from plastering the shooters name and picture all over the news. I feel this make crazy people who want to kill themselves see a way to go out like a celebrity. Who can top the last story? They want their name to be the one the entire world talks about in history books. Maybe they are not that popular and this gives them a way to be heard before they end their lives. Maybe our country is so focused and obsessed with celebrities that these psychos want that for themselves and this is the ONLY way they could ever get it.

I feel that if there was a law that stopped media from naming the shooter and just referred to them as "the shooter" or the "bomber" or "killer" this would stop some, not all, but some sickos from thinking they could get recognized and maybe just maybe they will kill themselves ALONE next time! I don't expect the media to not report the story because freedom of speech and what not, but they shouldn't name these sick loner freaks!

Please sign and pass along to get this law started!

Signed,

Teddy Slack
