The Copycat Effect
School shootings and other violent incidents that receive intense media attention can
generate threats or copycat violence elsewhere. Copycat behavior is very common, in fact.
Anecdotal evidence strongly indicates that threats increase in schools nationwide after a shooting
has occurred anywhere in the United States. Students, teachers, school administrators and law
enforcement officials should be more vigilant in noting disturbing student behavior in the days and
weeks or even several months following a heavily publicized incident elsewhere in the country.
How about banning the media or media control. LOL! The outrage we'd hear over that!
Before you read the “Outside The Lines” report, consider this:
Taping the opposing team’s sideline still isn’t banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasn’t banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
