Westword, I think that in light of the recent killings and other terrible crimes that have happened in Colorado, whoever keeps writing about the criminals, the motives, the attacks, the morbid details, etc. should be ashamed. We should be focusing on the victims of the crimes, or how Colorado or the U.S. in general can mitigate these crimes. Every other link from you has another mug shot, another name of a criminal. You are nothing but a machine churning out harmful information to make the wheels go round until another killer makes his "mark" so you can make another $1. I used to be a fan of your magazine for the music and arts content, but your Facebook feed is socially irresponsible and repulsive. I, like a lot of other people, judging from previous comments on posts about James Holmes, have had enough, and won't continue to follow you on Facebook.

Until we as a nation start to talk about Mental Health and Gun Control there is just going to be more brutality next year.

The constant barrage of images of these assclowns makes it more difficult. How about posting pics of victims - we would much rather remember them.
