Re: America is going to Hell

increase in murder rates:

violent movies, violent television, violent video games

as a man thinks in his heart, so is he Proverbs 23:7

murder begins in the heart Matthew 5:21-30

Re: America is going to Hell


Is there an increase in murder rates? Or is it over reported?

Its seems to be even more.

But the main thrust of the video is that Fortnight, Grand Theft Auto are training teenage assassins

I played GTA. I didnít shoot anyone. My theory has been that kids become the video game character and act it out. *shrugs*

I just turned on the video, Btw. Hopefully I can listen without distracting myself.

I thought violent crime has been going down for years which is weird cause if that's the case...why in the world are the police becoming more and more militarized?


I also thought that the video game/violence connection was debunked back in the day. Back then it was Wolfenstein and Doom that were gonna turn us all into racing murderous lunatics.

https://www.statista.com/statistics/...sa-since-1990/


Looks to halved since 1990...violent crime in the U.S. that is.


On the video games causing violence...quick scan revealed that little to no connection to violence and the one study I DID see headlines saying it caused violence...well...they did a study with I think 40,000+ "adolescents" aged 9-17?


Well folks...are they half female and half male in this study? It doesnt say but I imagine if that is skewed male and at that age range *puberty* they will CERTAINLY show more aggression with video games not even being involved and that's not even taking into account family life.

Lt Col David Grossman explains that all in detail. I knew a woman whose child was addicted to Twisted Metal. Favorite character was Needles Kane, also known as Sweet Tooth. Seems the back story of the character is that he kills his entire family. She ended up putting the kid on meds because he was extremely violent. Must of been all the sugar. But Lt Col David Grossman also speaks about sleep deprivation. He has a video Dave Grossman: "Bulletproof Mind" at the Cannon Air Force Base 3:20:57 is the amount of time.

Interesting what he says about PTSD. Nice to hear someone who agrees with my view.

Pretty much all the characters in Twisted Metal are bad people. I'd estimate millions of people have played that game. No issues with vast majority. The game doesn't have a lot to do with the characters. It's more of a cars with guns shooting at other cars with guns kinda game.

So my take is that if he latched on that much to the story character in the game then he already had issues. Perhaps instead of demonizing such games, kids behavior with them could be useful diagnostic tools for evaluating their mental health. I say that because his reaction was truly outside the normal range.
