They usually make more of an impact on the media when someone gets killed.

For some reason, such news reports tend to be rather ephemeral in the local media.

Yeah, but which media? If you look carefully most (like 97%) of (such) news are brought up here via media from "back home" (wherever that is) which Efers check out every single day...Now, nothing wrong with that as far as I'm concerned, as it's normal that our view on world is somehow shaped or influenced by what's happening there, but sometimes it's hilarious to see they extrapolate everything to CH.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

According to today's papers, 500 people turned up at the killers funeral. What conclusion should we draw from this.

No good football on, professional mourners, and the curious.

Contrast with the funeral of the French brothers where very few attended.

From "The Times of Israel":


A spokesman for the Danish Islamic Burial Fund objected to El-Hussein being buried at a cemetery run by his group. “My concern is over extremist attitudes and actions on both sides,” Ahmet Deniz told the Jyllands Posten newspaper ahead of the burial


The funeral organizer, Kasem Said Ahmad, also from the Islamic Burial Fund, rejected claims that large numbers attending the funeral could be interpreted as support for the alleged gunman. “It is a support for the family, not for him,” he told Jyllands Posten.

Depends if you're the woman or the teens really. Good for her but not quite so good for them.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Boy in Florida, 13, shoots his two brothers (one dead) as they ate the last slice of pizza. He then shoots himself.

Here

Wasn't he taught that it's bad manners to bring your guns to the dinner table?

Awaiting LiB's response post stating that, in Switzerland, a Kosovan drug dealer shot a rival in the arm, scratching it slightly.

Within the las few months, there were ample shootings in Switzerland but out of respect for the victims and their families and loved ones, I refrain from posting them just for a silly, useless cause.
