    We have become such a violent society. Violence everywhere, TV, movie, video games, music…people feel it is the way to deal with any confrontation.

      Humans have always been and will always be a very violent race. The only difference is today, the world is becoming overpopulated and there are many tools of the trade readily available to carry out these aggressive acts.

      And look how you make the same ignorant biased mistake that all those childish people do. Well played in being just like them in every way and being just as at fault for the blame as they.
