    Are you serious??

    Teens minds are more developed than say an 8 year olds. So they're a little less impressionable. It don't mean there not impressionable, just not to the degree as a young child.

    yes, but then again, there is more than one way to get to a person. I'm not saying they're swayed in the same way by any means, but have you ever seriously looked at some people? It's hard for me to believe some teens are teens by their poor behavior, if you tell some teens that an opinional situation is a fact, or lead them on into thinking what's an opinion is fact, you'd be suprised how gullibule people can be. I've seen people who have changed completely from middle school to high school, you can't say that's not a factor. You can't forget the power of peer pressure.

    Teens can be swayed but they have the mental strength to control thier own minds, so if they are swayed, it's their own fault.

    I have this bad habit. When people make broad, age based assumptions, I look at their public profile to see how old they are. So here's the deal. Let's not look at 'other people' for this right now. We don't need to. Think about the influences in your life so far, the big ones. Chances are, TV and video games rank pretty low on that list. That is what this thread is about, isn't it? I pose these questions to you, using our mutual media of choice: anime.

    Since you started watching anime, have you suddenly started taking karate/kung fu lessons because you want to be like your favorite character? Have you started massive adventure-sagas to right a grevious wrong simply because you enjoy your TV show? Have you jumped down a well recently? Do you randomly wail on people under the pretense of 'a challenge'?

    Obviously, that's all a little over the top. However, 'over the top', or, more aptly, 'over the edge' is what we're talking about. Does it sound normal to you? Of course it doesn't, because it's not. Does it happen? Yes. Is it normal? No. Is this redundant? Yes.

    Furthermore, I believe a study of current inmates would prove rather empiracly that most violent criminals have never touched a video game in their life, nor were they particularly devout followers of TV, because they were out committing crime during prime time. I find it suprising, that in a time of such controversy, that I haven't heard of a study on convicted criminals as a whole.

    Now, I'm not saying that children and adolescents are not impressionable. Quite the opposite, really. There are limits on what children should watch out of simple decency. However, it takes really, really bad influences to make a murderer, especially at a younger age. Take Devon Moore, the young black man in Alabama that shot a few police officers and stole a police car. He played a lot of GTA: San Andreas. What the news didn't tell you was his foster home situation, going from bad home to bad home. Boohoohoo, you say, we need to focus on the problem. Well, I just told you what the problem was. Fixing the media is the quick fix, something we can always fall back on when the ---- hits the fan, acknowledging that it was the fault of people locally possibly a failure of people in the local government itself, why, heaven forbid. They're perfect!

    You're right.


    and I second that the papers and reporters tend to leave out the home lives of these people. I never even heard about his foster home sitch, all I heard was how he played Grand Theft.

    teens today should be more open minded. they should be aware that not all the media's shows are good. they sould consider things that would evaluate whether the program is good or bad. nevertheless, parents sould always guide their children upon watching tv shows to tell tehm what's bad or good.
    beware... you might just loss your breath wothout noticing it...
