Study: Children Exposed To Violent Video Games Retain Aggressive Behavior, Thoughts - CBS Detroit

Study: Children Exposed To Violent Video Games Retain Aggressive Behavior, Thoughts - CBS Detroit | Deviant Behavior | Scoop.it
Pediatrician Dr. Kim Guiliano at the Cleveland Clinic Children's Medical Center says parents are still the first line of defense.
Amanda Lynn Nawrocki's insight:

I think that this article has to go back to where we learn our behaviors from. The games in this case are the starting point and they are said to cause aggressive behavior. I do agree with this but of course I know there are exceptions. In my personal opinion, I hate it that parents let their kids play these kinds of games. When they are older, it's cool, but not when they are in their teens. Teens are at that age where they just want to try everything and it's when the worst habits can set in, whether it's alcohol, drugs, sex, or video games.

Naked truth: Hats off — and everything else — as nudist resort celebrates milestone

Amanda Lynn Nawrocki's insight:

I was on a trip over break and I saw this article in the local newspaper, and I thought it was incredibly fitting for this class on what is accepted as "deviant" and what is not. Us normal people say that if you walk around the streets naked, it's highly deviant. But at this resort, people who walk around clothed are deviant. I thought it was entertaining. As an outsider, I would avoid this resort at all costs, but to someone who lives in the area or goes to the resort, it's normal and "natural".

Amanda Lynn Nawrocki's insight:

This is another one of those things where it's a question of whether it's deviant or not. Obviously, this woman doesn't feel she's being deviant because clearly she's strutting her stuff. Unless of course, she's fully aware of what she's showing off and she doesn't care. Like the writer said, this could be a grab for attention. I'm not sure if the article is a news article. It looked like a personal page and if that's the case, my bad. It came up as a google news search. Anyhow, personally, I hate it when I see women and men showing off everything because they think it's cool. I agree with the writer and it's gross. In my opinion, it makes this woman looks like she has no class whatsoever.

This is all over the gossip sites. The thing about it is that its NEW YORK FASION WEEK! There have been many other shocking runway antics. Oh and not to mention shes part of the kardshian clan for crying outloud. She could be doing worse. Every other girl in that show is showing just as much if not more but because shes already in the public eye shes more harsly looked down upon. I say "if you got it, flant it" and really she totally has it.

Amanda, good comments. Don;t worry, the blog you linked to here is a feminist blog and is perfectly fine to use for the course. Connect here to what we talked about on thursday. Specifically, how does gender affect how deviant Kendall Jenner's actions are judged? Also, like constructionists say, context matters here! This is not necessarily deviant in the fashion world. But clearly, if Kendall walked into a CNM building or down the street in ALbuquerque flashing her "stuff", reactions would be very different. What's deviant in one context may not be deviant in others.

Suspect accused of raping, beating 4-month-old child makes court appearance

Suspect accused of raping, beating 4-month-old child makes court appearance | Deviant Behavior | Scoop.it
Albuquerque police said a 4-month-old girl who was beaten and raped may not survive.
Amanda Lynn Nawrocki's insight:

This article absolutely appalled me. I really don't know what to say about it, but it's a bit beyond deviant behavior. It reminded me of the clip from Dark Knight that we watched in class because it's a male acting out to the point where he's a danger to those around him. The little girl wasn't even old enough to know that she did something wrong or deserved what happened, so really, she didn't deserve it. Any of it. And her mom's boyfriend did cruel things to her and his excuse is that he was stressed about money and upset because a crying baby woke him up. This seems like there's something really wrong with him, whether it's anxiety issues or just simply he doesn't know how to control his impulses. Again, I am completely appalled at this article.

This is outrageous. Personally I do not have any children yet, so I do not know how the family of this little girl is feeling. One thing that upsets me is the fact that they have not made themselves easily accessible considering the situation. Stress is not an excusable defense for the abuse and rape of this young child. In my opinion, this man should be given indefinite jail time, sexual predator registration, and a large fine. From the perspective of a future law enforcement officer, I believe our punishments are not strict enough.
Melissa Denetdale's curator insight, February 11, 2014 11:22 PM

This is by far one of the most nationally recognized act of deviant behavior. Any violent act against a child, especially a baby, automatically labels the offender as a person that needs to be punished to the full extent. Incidents like these are shocking and society always poses the question, "Why would that person do that? Who could do such a thing?" Violence will and always be dubbed a deviant act and in this case there is no sympathy towards the offender. When it comes time for the offender to spend their time in prison, that offender will even be an outsider among other offenders in prisons due to the offender's extreme deviant act.

Erin Madden's comment, February 12, 2014 11:06 AM
It's interesting to compare this article and the article posted by Ryley. This article has no mention of the agents of social control (police and child services) dragging their feet on this case. But Ryley's article discusses how CYFD visited multiple times, yet the child still continued to face abuse and neglect. This article even has a quote about how great the agents of social control are, "Simon Drobik of the Albuquerque Police Department. "Calls like this always effect officers and the unsung heroes of this department are the Crimes Against Children Unit. They see this all the time, day in, day out."" Interesting how different media sites take very different perspectives on the capability of the agents of social control in this case.

Parents of toddler cut by razor blades in park say culprit "sick" and "psychotic"

Parents of toddler cut by razor blades in park say culprit "sick" and "psychotic" | Deviant Behavior | Scoop.it
The Illinois toddler cut in a playground booby-trapped with straight-edged razors glued to monkey bars and slides says it felt like someone "cracked open" his finger.
Amanda Lynn Nawrocki's insight:

Being a mom, this absolutely APPALLED me. It's another one of those examples where guys usually show their emotions on the outside where as women usually keep their mental instability contained. I am not pointing fingers, but really anyone who does something like this has a huge mental issue. It's sick and incredibly violent.

Wow! This makes me very sick! I have a 4 year old nephew and I can't imagine who would want to hurt anyone especially an innocent child on purpose. Whoever planned this act is sick in the head and needs punished and needs major help.

And what connection can you make to course concepts here? Informal social control? learning theory?

Analysis: NCAA needs to address the epidemic of idiot fan behavior

Analysis: NCAA needs to address the epidemic of idiot fan behavior | Deviant Behavior | Scoop.it
The NCAA and its schools need to buckle down on courtside security and work to tone down the nasty behavior in the stands before something really bad happens. NCAA needs to address the epidemic of idiot fan behavior The incident was shocking, even given all the ugly behavior at college basketball arenas this season: a fan brazenly storming onto the court to confront ...
Amanda Lynn Nawrocki's insight:

First of all, I love the headline. "Epidemic of idiot fan behavior".... I mean how perfect is that? I think that this is pretty entertaining that college students actually got into a fight in the middle of the game with the coach. Of course it's dangerous. And I'm sure that they probably need to do something about courtside security or put a fence up (which should be absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary, but obviously it is necessary.) This is a perfect example of how men react more outgoing than women do. These men jumped out on a court in the middle of the game without any concerns or anything. If it was women.... well the whole thing never would have happened.

Good ideas about hwo to change social control at sports games! At the University of Wisconsin we had some very very rowdy fans that were obviously drunk. the university decided to give all people entering the stadium breathalizer tests before entering in order to deal with this problem. perhaps just having better security, as you suggest, may have been a better way to deal with rowdy disruptive fans.

Cell Phone Video Contradicts Sheriff's Version of Deputy-Involved Killing - Photography is Not a Crime: PINAC

Cell Phone Video Contradicts Sheriff's Version of Deputy-Involved Killing - Photography is Not a Crime: PINAC | Deviant Behavior | Scoop.it

Amanda Lynn Nawrocki's insight:

This article hit pretty hard at home for me. I had an uncle who was a deputy and was shot at a routine traffic stop. When I found this article, it automatically caught my attention. I feel that the officer used determinism to make his choice to use deadly force on the man. The officer was white and the man was Hispanic. He was the only officer who chose to use deadly force however. All the other officers were aware of the possibility of the man having a weapon but no other officer fired live shots at the suspect. The man was giving them a hard time. He was the cause of a high speed chase and he didn’t comply with the use of the bean bag rounds or the tazers, but no other officer attempted to use deadly force. At the end of the clip, I feel that Social Control Theory is in play because the man lifted his hands in a sign of surrender and stopped. I obviously don’t know for sure why the man stopped but my guess is he was showing, in a sense, his defeat. He stopped running or defending himself completely. He let his guard down 100% and this is when the officer fired the two deadly shots. Of course, the officer’s statement doesn’t match what is found on the video. He probably is trying to cover himself up because to anyone looking at the video, what is shown is cold-blooded murder. The man may have surrendered because he thought about his family, or he found some reason to stop, whatever it may be. He gave up.

(I did try to post earlier and my previous attempt was much clearer, but my internet decided that it didn’t like it, so the connection died and I had to rewrite the entire passage.)
