Well, I've taken my head out of the sand and what do I see? Thirty or more reasons to put it back in.
Why are terrorist groups so good at recruiting people to commit murder and often murder themselves? Is it really that these folks need a religion that can be twisted to hate all, including their own families?
Or are they looking for something else? Are they in love with notoriety and martyrdom?
What would happen to their recruiting efforts if we (society, news media) simply reported it happened, but no pictures of the carnage or suspects, no mention of their name or group?
Law enforcement has the information and if they need to share it to capture the guilty, then so be it, but otherwise silence................
The "glory" and notoriety is gone unless the group publishes it, but if no news media picks it up and uses it the news would quickly fade.
The persons just disappear, even from themselves. No one knows for sure except a select few. We don't need to announce their death (to them martyrdom) They just cease to exist for others to wonder.
Where is the excitement to enlist more in the cause?
Websites? Blogs? Sure, but if you go searching these out, you leave a trail and one that law enforcement can usually follow and should.
Why are WE (society) & the MEDIA doing their job for them?
