Guess who is against gun violence? The Son of Sam
One thing I hope for but seems unrealistic is for the media to let the Dark Knight shooter just fade away in to nothingness. I don’t want him interviewed 35 years later and have to listen to him talk about how that was a different person and he preys for forgiveness from victims families.
You will not see me say his name or even call him the Batman villain the media loves to call him. We have enough nuts on hand to interview, write books about and film 100s of documentaries on. We don’t need another one.

David Berkowitz speaks to the Daily News, decries violence as ‘senseless’ and prays for his victims in notorious 1976-77 killing spree
He is one of New York’s most notorious serial killers.
He shot 13 people in cold blood, killing six.

“It’s all senseless,” he said from the maximum security Sullivan County Correctional Facility in upstate New York, where he is serving six consecutive 25 years-to-life sentences.
“I’m looking beyond gun control. That’s for the legislators to wrangle with,” he said. “My hope is just that young people would understand just how terrible this violence is. When they use a gun against someone else, they ruin their lives too,” he said. “It’s not worth it.”
