Maybe the media could actually do their job? People are able to work. Not everyone can afford to buy crap they shouldn't need.

And it took all night before it gets posted to Facebook? Good crumbling police skulls! I've got a friend that went through that area this morning and he went through there not even knowing a shooter was on the lose. That's pathetic.
