The Columbine High School massacre of April 19 comes on the heels of the announcement on April 16 of a $130 million lawsuit by the parents of three girls killed, December 1, 1997, by 14-year-old Michael Carneal at Heath High School, in Paducah, Ky. The girls were kneeling in prayer just before school opened when they were gunned down. Their anguished parents contend the boy killer (not a “shooter” as defined by the neutral press) was inspired, aided and abetted by glamorized images of murder and mayhem he saw in mainstream media, as well as by the widely available pornographic images the boy consumed from the Internet.
