    Why does everyone think all parents are parental?

    We need to put the focus more on school bullying. Violent entertainment can feed a psychosis - but it doesn't cause them. Long term abuse or mental anguish however can. It's already been proven that high degrees of prolonged stress can cause someone to go nuts.
    Before worrying any more about bullying than we already do I'd make it illegal to plaster the photograph and name of the latest school shooter all over the screen 24/7.

    From what I've read, violent video games do increase one's violent tendencies if one already has proclivities towards violent behavior.

    Seems like common sense.

    It's possible the infamy appeals to copy cats. I can't disagree with you there. But I don't see how you can make something like that illegal in a country where you have a free press and free speech. One of the sacrifices we are going to have to make for living in a free society.

    And bullying still isn't really taken seriously by our public schools to be honest. According to my information, 1 in 4 teachers don't even see it as a problem - yet 1 in 20 students drop out of school because of it. And there is really no excuse for that - especially considering the mountains of scientific evidence available that proves bullying causes all kinds of severe mental health problems.

    Kind of reminds me of rapists: they have little interest in porn. Doesn't give them what they want.

    Not according to my information.

    My information is that serial rapists often have pornography addictions or unusually high interests in pornography. Ted Bundy himself admitted as much.

    “I’ve lived in prison for a long time now and I’ve met a lot of men who were motivated to commit violence just like me and without exception, every one of them was deeply involved with pornography. Without question, without exception, deeply influenced and consumed by addiction to pornography.”

    There is no doubt in my mind that mentally disturbed individuals looking to commit violence will feed off violent entertainment and be inspired by them. That is common sense as Pragmatic noted. So I don't really see why we need to spend millions of dollars on some study to prove the obvious.

    But what mentally disturbed individuals use to gain inspiration from shouldn't be our concern. What actually causes the mental disturbance in the first place is where the focus needs to be.

    Bundy was a psycopathic serial killer and can't be categorized as simply a rapist. There's a lot more evidence out there that porn is an outlet and not a motivator.

    And I wouldn't take anything Bundy said to the bank. He was a great liar.

    Then we run into freedom of the press issues linked to the first amendment.
