Minister Orbach: Avoid Bank Shooter Motive Speculation

Senior Citizens' Affairs Minister Uri Orbach posted to Facebook, "The media must avoid publicizing any opinions speculating the motive of the bank shooter was due to dire financial straits, as this could effectively legitimize the crime for others, with media approbation. The same goes for empathic interviews with his family members. Media should only focus on condemnation of the shooting, and empathize only with the families of the victims."
