How many people have died/been killed in the general area as the shooter the last two weeks by: Auto Accidents? Criminal Activity (other than the shooter)? I am just wondering how out of proportion the media is throwing this.

Don’t know – a lot no doubt. Last Friday, the shooting of the guy near Fredericksburg made national news. The same day a van hit a tree in Upper Marlboro MD, killing three people. That barely made the local news. Still, how many people died in the 9/11 attacks compared to automobile accidents that same year? Body count isn’t everything. OBTW: Making no excuses for the press, they’re exploiting this to the fullest. Though what bothers me even more is the absolutely endless stream of misinformation they are putting out. However, make no mistake, this is something the people of this area really do care about and want information on!!
