3. I wonder what impact online games are having on kids.

This came to mind recently when I was playing online solitaire and an ad for some reality game came on. I was just waiting until I could click the Skip ad button when a guy in combat gear came out, was met by a women (an enemy I assume) and he punched her right in the face, then moved on to the next victim. Iím horrified by the violence in these games. Is that violence desensitizing kids (and adults) to real violence?

A few years ago, there was also a site for girls. I think it was Slender Man or something close to that. Two middle school girls attacked a third, who was supposedly their friend, and left her to die because they believed that Slender Man told them to do it. Thatís some crazy crap going on.

9. As I recall

The two girls did that because they wanted to get Slenderman's attention, and they felt this would get him to come to them. Very sad and yet another example of a complete lack of parental presence. Video games will have little effect on a child unless the child has no other input. Which is usually the case in these incidents. What really amazes me is that it is obvious that the lack of parental attention happens more often with 'middle class and up' families, yet the common dialogue would have us believe that these incidents are from 'broken, poor families'. It is yet another example of how much reality differs from the steady stream of propaganda we are fed. And, it also makes me wonder, yet again, why the call is for a 'return' to anything. So much for progress...

7. If we started charging parents of shooters with...

...providing access to guns, maybe we could at least cut into this crap.

8. When a 14 yo started shooting at my local High School, the girl's coach disarmed him.

Somebody made fun of the way the kid was dressed, so (naturally) he went home, got his Daddy's gun, and took it to school.

He hid the gun until lunch break, took it into the cafeteria, and pointed it in the face of the student who dissed him.

The gunboy's best buddy intervened, stepped in between them, and tried to talk his friend down. He got shot for his troubles.

Another girl was hit from a ricochet that bounced off the wall.

The coach came up behind the kid and snatched the gun away from him before he got off another shot.

The samaritan friend who was shot recovered, and the girl was treated and released from the hospital with a minor wound.

The student who made fun of the kid's clothes was not hurt.
