Unfortunately people have become immune to the killing. I blame the video games that are so realistic. In real life there is no reset button.

I also find the violence that seems to be no big deal horrible.

Things are only going to get worse until Jesus comes back.  Then it will get a lot worse. Thankfully we the Christians will not be here to endure that.

It isn't just killing.  It is everything.  People are so mean and evil and vindictive.  People just look for reasons to get somebody else in trouble, keep them from getting a job, or try to get them fired from their job.  I don't like the world we are living in any longer.

It is not the fault of video games.  If your too stupid to not be able to tell the difference in a video game and real life then you need to be locked up so you cannot hurt anyone.

Blaming video games is a cop out.  I do think the games, the movies, and all that has influence.  And then parents who do not teach their child right from wrong.  Everything is okay.  If it feels good do it.  You choose if you want to be a girl or a boy.  NO your chromosomes determine that.  It just goes on and on.

As the word gets worse people are more immune.  There is no shock factor.  Like the first school shooting.  It should not have been broadcast for WEEKS on end.  Just gives others ideas.  I worked with a guy a few years ago, who would never have been accused of being mentally stable, who made the comment IF I ever decide to kill myself I am going to get a gun and take as many people out with me as I can.  I ask him why he would do that. And he said because I want to die famous.  Of course HR says well don't you think he was just kidding? IDK but I hope you are the first one he takes out.  SMH

I agree not the world i grew up in either.  We were never afraid to go to school, play outside, go to church, out to eat, anyplace and we never even thought about getting shot.

Today is an information age where everything is accessible with a few key strokes on your cellular or computer. Morbid curiosity can instantly be satisfied. Humans seem to thrive on any kind of news and have created a need for insanely, sensational stories. This, in turn, creates a spotlight for sick people to get their fifteen seconds of fame. Australia and Sri Lanka handled their tragedies by not releasing the names of the perpetrators which is a step in the right direction. Take away the fame and, perhaps, we will see a reduction in atrocious crimes. Just like sports fans have created the need for athletes to take performance enhancing drugs in order to post super human results. News fills a void in the lives of so many people that have less going on.

I don't recognize this country any more. So much violence, immorality and crime. Sad.

True.  Remember the church shooting in Texas a while back where he basically wiped out most of the congregation?  So much changed after that.  Almost all of the churches in my area now have a security team and security protocol.  I never would have thought I would see a time when you would need this in a church of all places.

I do not agree with people in general having a need to bad news or seeking it out.  But when it is in your face every time you turn around people will usually click the news link.  I do not know what happened in Australia.  I vaguely remember the other place you mentioned being in the news. 

But you are right in a lot of people seem to thrive on it.  There are multiple topics in these threads where people copy and past stories or links to bad things or just start threads wanting to talk about some specific bad thing going on in the world.

A lot of that just gives satanic people ideas of things to do.  School is going to be out I think this week in our area.  So thankful we made it through another year with nothing major happening.  A couple of punks made threats but when the cuffs were slapped on they went out of the school in tears (LOL) saying it was just a joke.

I blame the media a lot, they make  such a do about it and others seem to follow for their 15 minutes of shame, also  some of the video games and shows.  But a lot lays at the parents  feet.  And also a lot is brought on by  racist. Not that  most of us are, but what they see on TV.  When I grew up we never locked our doors in fact slept with them open  for air. No AC back then also all the windows would be open. Now  We sleep with our houses all locked up, never  unlock them except to go out and in from work and. I hate it.
