A 17-year-old boy who shot his sister and mother said that watching horror movie Halloween gave him the idea because he was ´amazed at how at ease the boy was during the murders and how little remorse he had´. Jake Evans´ disturbing four-page confession was released yesterday during his trial for the October 3 shooting deaths of his sister Mallory and mother Jami in their upscale home in a gated community of Aledo, Texas. The chilling confession spells out in intricate, matter-of-fact detail the thoughts and actions of the 17-year-old in the hours leading up to and during the inexplicable

I´ve never watched the ´Halloween´ genre of movies. Seen a few scenes, though. Too disturbing, too graphic. They take your mind to the dark places that should be avoided.

Friday The 13th Pt 2 had the ever so stunning Amy Steel in it. That made the whole movie worthwhile.
The genre itself is pretty dopey though. The shock wears off quick and then it becomes a yawn.
With evil working as hard as it is lately, the weak will always be the first to fall for it. Expect more. Stay armed.

I´ve seen Halloween and plenty of other horror flicks and have never felt the slightest urge to visit violence on others.

It isn´t the gun. It isn´t the movie.

It´s the person. (And it wouldn´t surprise me if this kid is or was on meds. Many crazies are, and they may well play a role in behavior.)

Unless and until all of us can get past blaming whatever the bad guy says motivated him or blaming the tool the bad guy use, and instead blame the bad guy directly, we won´t get anywhere.

Sad fact of life (and death):
Some few people are born with genetic, gestational or other developmental deficiencies. Some of these deficiencies are further exacerbated by ignorance or incompetence by parents, teachers, pastors, counselors, etc. Like a mudslide killing a family or an entire community, it cannot totally be predicted or avoided. Like I said, sad fact of life.

The other sad fact of life is that collectivists will latch onto any plausible scapegoat. Some collectivist movements will demonize the free speech and criminalize the entertainment industry. Ours favors them and demonizes the gun owners instead.

We should call for calm, avoiding overreaction, and avoiding governmental restraints on the freedoms of sane, responsible people. Penalties ought to come only on those who have intentionally harmed the innocent, and on those "caught in the act," i.e., absolutely imminent threats.

#9: In the simplest terms possible you are right: it isn´t the guns or the movies that kill people. It´s people that kill people.

I was making a sarcastic point by suggesting that liberals ought to be consistant and if they blame one object (guns) for loss of life, they should , under the same principle blame the movies also. But we all know they will not because, in the end, they are not really concerned with violence and death, they just want to take our guns away.

However, I do believe that there is a measurable cumulative effect on individuals and society overall due to the coarsening of our culture by the purveyors of the type of gaabage that comes out of hollywood, the so called music industry, television, and video game publishers. One can reasonably deduce that the more feable minds among the population can be tipped over the edge by this never eanding and cumulative coarsening process whereas they would most times stay within the bounds of civilized beahvior were it not for these stimuli.

No, it isn´t the movie alone...but the constant barrage of violence, gore, and the glorification of evil in movies is a CONTRIBUTING FACTOR. And if we went back to having some level of self-imposed standards, there will be no violation of the First Amendment. Besides, the First Amendment protects one´s speech. Anyone can say what they want -- and as long as it doesn´t infringe upon other people´s rights (e.g. cause harm to others), there should be no repercussions for that speech. However, while we are all granted the right to free speech, we are not guaranteed any specific forum for it. This means that there is no guaranteed right to broadcast said gratuitous violence and gore on TV or in movie theatres across the country. And remember, if there is cause for harm, one may be held accountable for such speech that created that harm in the first place (e.g. go to jail if you yell "Fire!" in a crowded theatre and people are hurt or killed in stampede as a result).

The idea of killing someone "just to see what it feels like" has been glorified in several movies and songs. It seems that when some people, usually young people, are exposed to that idea they latch onto it and can´t get it out of their heads and so they actually do it. In my little rural part of the state it has happened at least 3 times that I can remember. The most memorable was a 14 year old kid who beat a 12 year old schoolmate he barely knew to death with a baseball bat in the woods behind his house. He didn´t need a gun, just a sick idea implanted into a sick brain.

#11, there is nothing in the article which suggests a developmental disability.

I mentioned "deficiencies" in the factors that developed his character and personality, very carefully including both the genetic and environmental factors, i.e., the entire preparation of his individuality, values and inclinations.

If you feel that someone who commits cold-blooded murder is not a deficient person, then I have no further reasoning that could possibly convince you.

I don´t think this kid watched one movie and snapped suddenly. Maybe his symptoms were ignored. He seemed to have a lot of pent up anger.

For a long time we have realized young women become schizphrenic by a certain age. I don´t think enough attention is given to young men between 16 and 21 with mental issues who are prone to violence.

MONROE, La. — In a matter of days, Republican Vance McAllister has gone from being the unlikely congressman — a special election winner who trounced his party´s establishment candidate — to the "kissing congressman," a faith-and-family politician caught on video embracing an aide married to one of his friends. Amid some calls for his resignation, he has said he will respect the verdict of his constituents this fall.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A serial killer was put to death Thursday in Texas after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected his lawyers’ demand that the state release information about where it gets its lethal injection drug. Tommy Lynn Sells, 49, was the first inmate to be injected with a dose of newly replenished pentobarbital that Texas prison officials obtained to replace an expired supply of the powerful sedative. Sells declined to give a statement. As the drug began flowing into his arms inside the death chamber in Huntsville, Sells took a few breaths, his eyes closed and he began to snore.

PITTSBURGH – A 5-year-old bows her head at lunch to say Grace before she eats may be considered cute and heartwarming by some. That was not the case for a student in Florida. The young girl was told by a school lunchroom supervisor that her actions were wrong. The girl’s father, Marcos Perez, is outraged to the point where he is considering homeschooling his child. Today, the Liberty Institute sent a letter to the school administrators demanding they stop allowing religious discrimination, which is in violation of not only state, but federal law.

General Motors knew about a defect in its ignition switches eight years ago and changed the design of an internal part, but never told federal regulators or the drivers of its cars, according to evidence from a recent lawsuit filed by a Georgia woman who died in a 2010 GM car crash. In February the automaker recalled 1.6 million vehicles, saying their ignition switches could be accidentally turned from “run” to the “accessory” position while the car is being driven, shutting down the car’s power brakes, power steering and airbags.

Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public
