one of the reasons I got rid of cable TV (along with the fact that there is absolutely nothing good on anymore) is the nonstop parade of violence. i don't want my kids growing up thinking it's normal for people to run around with guns killing everyone in sight or raping every girl that comes along. that's just one aspect that affects the developing minds of kids and teenagers, and based on how many hours the average teen spends in front of the tube or video game/computer, it would seem to be a big one. remember when we were kids - video games consisted of PacMan and Frogger. PacMan never had the option of pulling over to pick up a hooker and 'do it' in the back of a car. Or kill a cop. The absence of proper families and parenting leads kids to find their own way these days. As we all know, kids have a tough time separating fiction from reality. It's one of the gripes against the corporate advertising industry which constantly bombards kids to buy their product no matter how horrible or unhealthy that product might be. Money is the new god and the toll in human health or lives doesn't really matter. Sadly, shootings like this will continue to increase and become more common, not less.
