Copycat Crimes: We see so many of the same crimes each day/week. Does that make them copycat crimes?

There was a time when the crimes we see today were not so prevalent years ago. Now, it is all the time. In the 50's and 60's, how often did you read about someone going into a school or fast food place and just start shooting? When did you read that a person drove into a crowd and killed nine people? Now, it is all the time. It makes me feel that these are copycat crimes. Do they do it for attention or some other reason?

I do think some do it for attention or for some other insane purpose. Crimes occurred back in the day, but we were not bombarded with those crimes day in and day out. Technology gives too many people who are not quite sane too many harmful ideas.
