Orbach: Media is Making Murder an Option
« on: May 22, 2013, 04:37:05 AM »
Via Arutz Sheva 7:

The Israeli media is unintentionally encouraging murder, Minister for Pensioners Affairs Uri Orbach (Bayit Yehudi) warned Wednesday.

In a post to his Facebook page, Orbach criticized media coverage of the murder of four people in a bank in Be’er Sheva on Monday. The murderer, a disgruntled customer, shot and killed four people and then himself. Some have since suggested that the murderer was motivated by financial distress.

“When citizens, politicians and journalists say that the murderer in Be’er Sheva did it because of the ‘financial situation’ in the country, they are flat-out encouraging more murders, albeit unintentionally,” he wrote.

For those who don't know the background, there was a mass shooting/suicide by cop in a bank in Be’er Sheva Monday. Reporting of it was fairly subdued by US standards.
Before you bitch about the youth of today ... think about who raised them.
