  •  motive for the Port Arthur Massacre (1+ / 0-)

    as outlined by the killer's lawyer:

    His motivation for the massacre remains a closely guarded secret,[21] known only to his lawyer, who is bound not to reveal confidences without his client's consent. The lawyer later released a book outlining that Bryant was motivated largely by the media surrounding the then recent Dunblane massacre.
    Motivation for the Pt Arthur Massacre

    We should think very carefully about allowing wide exposure to details of mass shootings; since it appears that the notoriety of the shooter and the instant fame he gets from the events is a very powerful motivator; and one begets another, just as Dunblane begat Port Arthur.
