Do Video Games Make Kids Violent?

Do Video Games Make Kids Violent? | violent video game | Scoop.it
"The question as to whether video games ( or computers, or televisions, or what have you ) are good for you or bad for you all by themselves is actually meaningless. Technologies have effects, and different ones, only as they are situated within specific contexts. So we always have to ask how the technology was used and in what context it was being used."

This post looks at current research on this topic, discussing the state of the research as well as emerging truths. The truths: "at-risk groups are vulnerable to violent stimuli, video game violence is not a significant danger to the general population, fantasy violence is less dangerous, violent games do increase simulation, and content ratings matter."

Each of these is discussed in some detail and resources are provided in the post.

New research suggests violent games can stir hostile urges and aggressive behavior in the short term, but it is not clear whether the habit increases the likelihood of committing a violent crime.

Ali Syed-Another Madman With A Gun Who Played Violent Video Games Kills Three Then Himself

Ali Syed-Another Madman With A Gun Who Played Violent Video Games Kills Three Then Himself | violent video game | Scoop.it

TUSTIN, Calif. (AP) — A woman who was the first of three people killed in a gunman’s rampage has been identified, but her relationship to the shooter — a videogame-playing loner — remained unknown Wednesday, authorities said.

Courtney Aoki, 20, of Buena Park was shot multiple times early Tuesday in the home that gunman Ali Syed, 20, shared with his parents, said Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino.

But beyond that, authorities know little about her, including how she got there, her occupation, and how she knew Syed, Amormino said.

Syed, a part-time community college student who ultimately committed suicide, was a loner and a “gamer,” Amormino said.

“He spent a lot of time alone in his room playing video games,” he said.

A 12-gauge shotgun used in the killings belonged to Syed and was purchased by his father, he said.

The rampage began before dawn Tuesday at the home inLadera Ranch and ended 25 miles to the north during the early morning rush hour, police said.

Syed killed two more people during carjackings, injured at least three more, and shot up cars zooming down a busy freeway interchange before committing suicide with his shotgun as police closed in, authorities said.

The shooter forced one commuter stopped at a stop sign out of his BMW, marched him to a curb and shot him three times from behind as shocked witnesses looked on,Tustin police Chief Scott Jordan said.

The motive for the shootings remained unclear.

Syed had no criminal history and no history of mental illness or mental disability, said Lt. Paul Garaven, a Tustin police spokesman.

How will we spin this to become the fault of the gun and the killer a victim....?

I think it is related to Islam....but the media will never say it and police will likely avoid that connection

I received the same info...possibly an "honor" killing at first...the girl who nobody seems to know...that was at his house when he killed her...for what..? After tha...he was probably just running and killing anyone who got in his way....
