    Im not sure other cultures have the amount of violence in their music or media as we do. There have been studies linking behavior with violent music. Not as much with video games. Here is one such study, although it deals with music videos. http://library.wcsu.edu/dspace/bitstream/0/35/1/tropeano.pdf

    I was answering the question of why things have changed since the 1950s in America. But to answer your question. Some people are more prone to violence than others. That is evident throughout human history. I do think that music/media enhances those thoughts and behaviors or worse condones them. So while violence has always been a part of humanity, in today's culture, we have many things that influence violent behavior.

    In my opinion, culture itself changed, and that in part has to do with the media. I know it has been talked about relentlessly, and some people just plain refute it, but television, movies, gaming, and music all contribute to the culture change. However, I think movies and music has more to do with it than gaming.

    I was at a concert in Memphis and the man 2 up from us in line had a small knife he said he forgot he brought it. They made him give it up. It worked there. I think detectors will work, but I agree with you that they need to be used correctly. A fear I do have with them is that schools will use them for 2 or 3 years, and then slowly stop using them. Huge expense for schools to do that or for them not to use them correctly.

    The cost to put metal detectors is expensive. To do it right away some areas will have to give up money. And that is going to cause HUGE issues, because people hate giving up money, even if it is for something more important. If each of the 99,000 public schools in the US install 2 metal detectors at a minimum $4,000 each, that is 800 million dollars. That doesn't count installation and training on those metal detectors. I am all for...

    In Las Vegas, many elementary schools go year round. They go for roughly 9 weeks, then 2 weeks off, then 9,2, 2 weeks for Christmas, 9,2,9,6 weeks off for summer. It was actually pretty nice.

    A soccer league in New York has already put something like this into place. If a parent/spectator who has been asked to leave refuses. The referee can abandon the game and that team will forfeit. More leagues need to install this type of mindset. Zero Tolerance Policy For Abusive Behavior, Language And Intent

    If you notice, the high murder rate happens in larger cities, and within those cities, in low income areas. If you look worldwide, the most violent countries are those countries that are poor. Violent crime is a mindset, whether that mindset is survival, territorial, or just plain evil, it is still a mindset. If you take away guns, they kill with knives, if you take away knives, they will kill with a bat, etc... Not sure the answer,...

    As mentioned before from Guru, From 2009-2015, the US wasn't in the top 10 of advanced countries with mass shootings per capita. Norway, Serbia, Finland, Belgium, France, Macedonia, Albania, Slovaki, and Czech Republic all were ahead of the US. Nothing to be proud of, just making note. It would be a interesting study to find out why countries with low rates do not have this problem.

    I think it is a great idea. I am all for this. I am disgusted at listening to parents at games. Parents wishing players on the other team will get hurt, or worse encouraging their team to hurt other players. Yelling obscenities at referees for tough to make calls, or even correct calls. I even heard a parent yell "I hope you and your family die in a car accident on your way home." I umpired baseball and ref'd basketball for a...

    Haworth is a good coach who loves his players. It will be interesting to see how he does going against 7th region schools on a regular basis versus 2nd region schools. There is far more depth in the 7th. I hope he will rise to the challenge.
