Do you think it was appropriate for NBC to broadcast the Virginia Tech gunman’s video?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on April 20, 2007
“No. They shouldn’t have shown it out of respect for the families who are in mourning. They should have censored it. I wouldn’t want to see that on TV if I knew someone who was involved.”
“No. I think it should have been discussed with the families first. It would have been better if they had held it until they had gotten hold of them.”
“No. I hate that he has gotten any notoriety for what he did. I think it encourages people like him to become recognized for that kind of behavior.”
“No. I don’t think it was. It was too soon. They should have waited. The police receive the same type of evidence in high-profile cases and they will usually withhold it from the public.”
