They could release the name when they release the shooter, or not release the shooter at all.

Usually, they are killed or commit suicide after the attack.
I've heard it stated but am not convinced hence I asked the question to get other people's opinions on the issue.
It could be tried
Maybe some do it for some fame but most terrorist do not do it for personal fame. If you look at the majority of terrorist attacks they actually do it for a very collectivist , non individualistic causes. (religion , nationalism , ethnicity) The theme of not naming the perpetrators and giving the details was pushed because IT would point out the statistics of who usually does most attacks.
Because some shooters are motived to do it for the fame. The idea is if you eliminate that "benefit" then some wouldn't go through with it.
So asking for people's opinion on whether or not viewers (the customers of the media) should support a practice by the media by watching their shows and giving them ratings now means that I hate freedom of speech huh? For crying out loud I wasn't even asking if they should face criminal charges for doing that. I guess if you tried to organize a boycott of a business because the owner said he thinks black people should be lynched and Jews should be gassed is also violating "his freedom of speech". But way to show that the conservative anti liberal free speech cause is nothing but a load of fear mongering garbage.
No you liberals want to have total control of freedom of speech... like when Kathy Griffin held a severed of the president. You liberals defended her freedom of speech. The only free speech you want is yours.
Right, because liberals are the ones who actually introduced bills and passed laws that restricted the freedom of speech like the flag desecration amendment and patriot act and were behind 71% of all politically motivated murders in the last two decades. Oh no wait, that was conservatives.
@Thatsamazing no but you ate and blocked
@Thatsamazing if you are going to be that nasty. Which what a lot of liberals are... I don’t want to interact with you.
How many times have liberals shut down conservative speakers? You know I’m correct on this. They get violent and nasty. Liberals want to dictate freedom of speech.
How many times did conservatives kill someone for disagreeing with them? Between 23 and 24 times as many that have been killed by liberals. When you shut down a speaking event you silence the person for a night; when you kill them you silence them forever. I think that's a lot more nasty and violent.
Come on. Liberals burn cars and beat people up all the time. And don’t even go there when the Chicago streets are full of liberals killing people.
It may seem like all the time to you because you have your faced buried in Blaze TV but in 2017 there were 11 terrorist attacks by left wing groups and 37 by right wing groups. If you're going to make a case, use statistics, not individual cases.
Well I’m afraid to where my trump hat. Why? Because I know a crazy ass liberal will be beat me up. And if that would happen... you liberals would say he was justified.
I don't think that would be justified and I've seen people on my UNIVERSITY CAMPUS walk around with one on without getting assaulted. Again, the Blaze just made you paranoid.
You know people who wear a trump hat are going get assaulted either verbally or physically.
I've never seen people wearing a trump hat receive either kind of assault (not saying it doesn't happen, I'm just saying I've seen people go around with a hat without that happening to them). But now you're just cherry picking individual cases; do you have statistics that shows that the left is more violent than the right?
If you don’t agree with me you claim I’m cherry picking
No, I'm pointing out that using anecdotal claims isn't a very useful way to show that one side of the political spectrum is more violent than the other; statistics is.
And you are helping Trump in the process. Liberals are their own worse enemy
By showing that records show that violent acts are committed by conservatives with greater frequency and severity than by liberals, I'm helping Trump win. Wow, I didn't know Trump was a liberal.
No stupid with your rhetoric. If liberals keep up with this crazy bull shit... democrats will never take the White House again
What kind of rhetoric? You mean things you just don't agree with?
Also, if you're going to come on a question about a non-partisan issue to argue about politics, it's pretty hypocritical for you to accuse me of complaining about political issues.
*whining about political issues.
And on the issue of rhetoric, where have you heard the "I'm sick of your views so shut up" rhetoric before?
It’s called freedom of speech. I can say what I want
Of course you can, just like SJWs can claim that they're "offended" by other people's political views. But if you use that as a talking point don't be surprised if no one takes you seriously.
No one takes you seriously because you are a hypocrite
Oh really, this coming from someone who complains about the left trying to use political correctness to silence dissent but is all to happy to use patriotic correctness to achieve the same ends.
You are nuts
Oh now you're throwing out ad hominem attacks; not SJW-like at all LMAO.
Tell me are a whiney butt today because they found no Russian collusion?
I don't know, are you pissy because Trump couldn't get the funds for the border wall, or is it because you can't handle political views contradictory to your own?
See, when you throw out ad hominem attacks, it just makes your stance seem weaker and weaker.
I’m not pissy. I’m not the one who has tried to come up with every reason why Hillary wasn’t elected. Trump is going to get re-elected and it will be you liberals that get him there.
There are any number of reasons people get elected but the main reason trump was elected was because the electoral college went against the popular vote; not because the majority people disagreed with liberal politics (if it was because of that then he would have gotten the popular vote).
But it was his policies that gave the democrats house control.
No it was pure hatred
Democrats have no message for the people... just “we hate Trump” they prove that every day
If it was hatred more people would have voted for Trump than Hillary; but that's not what happened and they have a set of policies that they push for like single payer healthcare which is supported by 70% of the US population. What support Trump has is pretty much based on fear mongering which is why he's been trying to claim that the wall issue is a "national emergency" even though the US had a similar number of illegal immigrants relative to its population for the past 20+ years and it wasn't an emergency then.
You know that's true when he has to resort to such PC tactics as claiming that people oppose him because they "hate America".
They do hate America that pretty well known
And how do you "know" that? Do you have any polling data that supports that claim? Really, you sound like an SJW trigglypuff who claims that people support Trump because they're "racist". But as for the liberal side being based on hate, is that why hate crimes against minority groups committed by far right groups spiked in occurrence when Trump took office? And no, I'm not saying that Trumps support is based entirely on hatred/racism, I'm saying that the data shows that it's responsible a larger portion of his support than it is for those on the left.
Oh please I’ll feel sorry for minorities when they stop killing each other.
They're "killing each other" because poverty rates in minority communities is higher which are correlated with high crime rates and not caring about a hate crime committed against someone because they happen to be born into an ethnic group with a high poverty rate is a pretty lousy justification for apathy. But at least now we have it on record that you're OK with racially motivated crimes against certain groups of people. Thanks for reinforcing my point.
Oh please stop excusing criminals
They kill each other over michael Jordan shoes
OK this is really getting pathetic. Stating that a minority group has higher crime rate because poverty rates within its' communities isn't "excusing criminals" (ignoring the fact that I never stated that said crimes should be pardoned) it's stating that it doesn't make it OK for someone to attack a member of that group because their communities have high crime rates. Using black on black crime as a justification for apathy towards hate crimes committed against black people; now that's "excusing criminals".
You expressed indifference toward a criminal act.I explained why a racial group can't be held collectively responsible for the high crime rate in their communities.Yet you claim that I'm excusing criminals and have the nerve to call me a hypocrite. This is the kettle calling the silverware "black".
But this brings up another issue: you clearly believe in collective responsibility based on race but you're against black people receiving reparations for slavery. Does collective responsibility only apply to races other than your own. Now I don't believe in collective responsibility based on race nor am I fan of identity politics (unlike you apparently); I believe in the responsibility of a government to individuals that it wrongly discriminated against. But do you think that collective responsibility only applies to certain races but not others?
I’m not giving anyone any reparations. What is it with you liberals always trying to steal other people’s money. Give them your paycheck
There you go calling tax dollars "your" money. Got news for you: it's our money because we both live in a society; a society that without which we could never enjoy the standard of living that we have today. But certain individuals were unjustly denied their fare share of said benefits that society has allowed us to have because of discriminatory policies. But as for the border wall, if someone doesn't want to pay for it would using their tax dollars to build it "stealing" from them? Are you practicing what you preach and giving your paycheck to the white house to pay for it?
Again, calling a tax policy that you don't agree stealing from you is just as ridiculous as saying that trying to pass a law that you don't agree with is saying you want me kidnapped for doing something that you don't approve of.
I pay taxes, so do you and we both have a say as to how that money should be spent. We may have disagreements about what it should be spent on but calling said disagreements trying to steal from each other is simply ludicrous.
I’m not the one wanting to give other people’s money away... you are. And I don’t know if you have a kidnap fetish or what. You constantly bringing up being kidnapped is just stupid.
Reparations aren't "giving other people's money away", it's giving people back what was wrongfully taken from them. I don't want to give people's money away any more than you want to take people's money away to the people who want to build the border wall. The tax dollars that are going to fund the wall (in your view) will help the US economy overall. Just like single payer healthcare gives people financial security so they would be more willing to spend their money on goods and services, encouraging the development of new goods and services and helping the US economy overall. If I have a kidnapping fetish you have a thievery fetish. Of course comparing incarceration to kidnapping is stupid. Do you know what's just as stupid: comparing taxation to theft. I've noticed that conservatives always like to call tax dollars going to programs that they don't like taking "their" money. As if you're the only ones paying taxes LMAO. Also you act as being "sick" or "unemployed" are permanent categories that people are stuck in. NOPE a lot of people get unemployed for a while and depend on welfare from tax dollars but before that they paid taxes to support said unemployment benefits. You saying that if I support tax dollars going to X program then I should just give my paycheck to support it is just saying that even though I pay taxes, I shouldn't have to a say in where the tax dollars are spent just because I don't agree with you. Now that's entitlement. Not welfare, not universal higher education, not single payer health care; the idea that only you get to decide what the tax dollars that we all pay into goes to and if someone wants them to go somewhere else, they should just give their paycheck to said program even though they pay taxes themselves.
Why do you write this bull shit I’m not reading it. You say the same shit over and over again. Just give some blacks your paycheck and be done with it. Stop whining
Actually a lot of what I wrote I never said before but you keep repeating this fallacious line that reparations are handouts. BUT if you don't think I should have a say in how the tax dollars I pay into are spent, then it's only fair that I shouldn't have to pay taxes. So tell you what: If you give me your paycheck to reimburse what I pay in taxes then I'll stop advocating for reparations and give blacks my paycheck. That's only fair :)
And until you're willing to do that, quit bitching about how I'm trying to "steal your money".
You are the one bitching and whining like all liberals do.
You throw hissy fits all over my questions and keep telling me to "shut up". Now are you going to argue something substantive or is this just gonna turn into "Yo moma" contest?
Now you’re just being stupid
I know your little feelings are hurt because they found no collusion lol
Yep, you're just trying to turn this into a petty insulting match aren't you -_- Sorry, such things are beneath me.As for me being upset about collusion, can you show any of my posts where I even claimed that there was collusion or are you just talking out of your ass?
You know you were hoping for collusion
I'm hoping for a lot of things; I hope they find a living thylacine somewhere in Australia tomorrow. That doesn't mean I'm expecting them.
That tells me a lot. Liberals rather this country go up in smoke than have Trump make it better. That’s all you all have is your hatred
All that tells you is I don't want him in office. You can claim all we have is hate but so long as Trumps' election coincided with a spike in hate crimes it's just hypocritical drivel.
But tell me, were you hoping that Bernie's wife was found guilty over the college land deal investigation. Because you talked about it a lot more than I talked about the Russian collusion.
I could have cared less. Your queen Hillary and your dnc screwed Bernie out of the nomination so he was never going to run for president. So what his wife did or didn’t do never mattered. Liberals saw to this.
Well it mattered to you a lot more than the Russian collusion allegations mattered to me.
The democrats wasted over 25 million dollars on Russia collusion.
Well at least we didn't waste 3 trillion on the hunch that Iraq had WMDs.
Oh but wait, I Robert Mueller a Democrat or Republican?
It doesn’t matter it was liberals who cooked up this idea of Russian collusion. And you all loved him at first. Who was it that voted for the Iraq war? Oh yeah your queen Hillary
Only liberals "cooked it up," right because no conservatives had a bone to pick with Trump*Cough Bush*Cough McCainHillary's "my Queen" right, that's why I didn't vote for her -_- Not all Republicans supported the Iraq war and not all Democrats opposed it BUT the majority of the support for the war came from the Republicans.
Your straw-mans' too wet to burn
Please do not start with the straw man shit. You liberals use that for everything
If someone tries to pull a straw man argument (which you did so it's kind of silly to say that I'm starting "with the straw man shit") I'm going to call it out. Oh really we pull straw man arguments. Like saying that Social democracy means completely abolishing the free market. Oh no wait, that's you.
Or here's another straw man: Because I think that people should as consumers of their product (information) discourage news outlets from giving the names of mass shooters I'm against the freedom of speech (your opening statement on this thread).
