The article “Do Video Games Kill” written by Karen Sternheimer responds to one of the most sought-after question; are video games the cause for “young killers”? (220) Sternheimer believes the influence of video games on today’s youth maybe spiraling out of control. She focuses most of the blame on the media, politicians and the Juvenile Justice System. Sternheimer suggests that there are other factors to blame for violent behavior: poverty, the neighborhood, unemployment, family violence, divorced parents and mental illness (218). While juvenile crimes have declined, and personal backgrounds effect actions, it cannot be proven that video game violence has no to little effect on America’s youth.
The 2nd point is there is no evidence to support that video games are pressuring kids to be hostile to others. Finally, video games are keeping kids off the streets and inside where they are not in trouble but rather playing video
Its been fought over for many years that violent video games should not be given to minors, but teens and minors reply in a different way that of to adults and physiologists. But what does the Supreme Court have to say? One child psychologist claims to believe “violent video—games—which have become increasingly interactive and realistic—could lead minors to commit real-life acts of aggression, and that such games are psychologically damaging to them”(Yee 17). In order to understand the Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association, one must know that a psychologist believed that violent video games for children lead to aggression later on in life, Each side presented its own view on the case, The impact on this case has changed Americas view on video game distribution to minors.
AoW #5 A large controversial subject in America is about gun control. Should guns be banned or not? In my opinion I believe guns should not be taken away from American citizens, here are some of my reasonings. Public shootings are caused by the shooter, not the gun. Also, video games and movies have a large impact on children’s minds at an early age.
This approach requires us to compare the risks and the benefits that arise from the violent videogames. Because there is no evidence that proves violent videos games causes an increased risk in society, it would be wrong to consider these games
Many people think that these games will not have a major impact in a student or teens life that teens will be more prepared to face the real world an all its dangerous. But I say that yes these games might teach kids that the real world isn 't always that safe but I believe that these games show kids to be violent and reckless. To conclude this is why many parents and government officials believe that kids should not be allowed to play violent role playing games. By not letting kids play these games we can prevent more horrible and tragic shooting involving
Miranda cautions are a high point of dispute in the law enforcement scene. There are many misunderstandings as to when "Miranda" applies. First, I explain about Miranda rights to their family because it’s important to know these basics. If we aren’t in police care then we don’t have to give them Miranda warnings. We mention all the matter in front of boy’s family and asked the officer that when police officers question a suspect in custody without first giving the Miranda warning, any statement or confession made is supposed to be instinctive, and cannot be used against the suspicious in any criminal case.
In contrast to the ethos of the Chevrolet advertisement, Henry Jenkins masterfully employs logos to deconstruct myths centered around the idea that videogames are dangerous and are connected to youth violence. Jenkins says that there is a large gap, “between the public's perception of video games and what the research actually shows,” and many of those perceptions are based on an emotional response and the facts are meant to counter that. The audience of Jenkins’s endeavor would fall on the neutral side of things because they would be the ones who don’t necessarily have an already formed opinion on the subject and would be most willing to listen and allow themselves to be persuaded by statistics and information backed up by research.

Violent Video Games: Does It Cause Violence? Devin L. Naseer Youngstown State University Abstract The purpose of this paper is to create an argument with reasoning and research as to why violent video games do not cause violence.
Kara’s strongest argument was that adopting the resolution is a violation of the 1st Amendment, freedom of speech etc. She justified her argument by providing evidence that adopting the resolution is unconstitutional because it has not made it through the US Supreme Court, thus the government has little control on media violence. This went against Corissa’s argument that if the government can have control over children watching pornography then the same control should be implemented for children watching media violence. This is an example of an argument from principle because it appeals to values such as justice or equality (Herrick). Furthermore, I believe Corissa won the debate.
(Paragraph 8). With bullies i the real world we can stop them because we see who it is. With bullies at school o another physical place they can or will physically harm the child, but mental trauma from cyberbullies is even harder to cope with. We need a law against the cruelty towards others in all states if it 's for children or adults.

I feel that banning violent television shows goes a little overboard and what about the people who enjoy these types of movies. (2) How can ecological differences in violence rates be explained since everyone has access to media violence no matter where they live? In other words, how would differences in violence rates in cities and rural communities be explained if the media was a cause of violence? (B) I really do not believe that media is a cause of violence in either community. I believe it is just the individual and the environment that they are in.
Also, media coverage on the news can show some very gruesome violence that occurs across the globe. This kind of brutality can give people bad ideas. "Although the video game industry and any of its fans maintain otherwise, studies suggest that, as with violent movies and television programs, a connection likely exists between brutality in games and real-life aggression", according to Paul Keegan from the New York Times. With video games becoming super popular, many experts think that the most realistic video games are getting the most violent students are becoming. Violence in the media can cause copycat crimes.
