The purpose of Wikipedia is to report facts, not to change the world. The page contains a long life story about the guy.

This article is getting his message out. The lives of the people who died are not being read about.

A discussion on the importance of motivation

We are not being affected by the messages of their life stories. The article is promoting the attacker and encouraging a repeat to occur. It is almost glamorizing his life choices. Many people will want to emulate him because of it. I know this view won't win but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway.

It is not just here to report facts. Otherwise we would let the families of the victims add facts about the lives of the victims to the article too. However, doing this would be flagged as 'not notable'. The status quo is to say that only the life of the attacker is notable.

Researchers have identified a number of factors important to reading motivation including self-concept and value of reading, choice; time spent talking about books, types of text available, and the use of incentives. Alongside our responsibility to equip our students with the academic skills to ace tests, utilize technology, and comprehend curriculum, we need to consider how we can formulate our teaching strategies to undergird character to become the most well-rounded and complete individual as they progress through their educational career.
