Disturbing trend

January 2, 2013 - Karin Elton
I was reading about the Hatfield-McCoy archaeological dig which turned up bullets and charred bits of the house where the feuding families had their final standoff.

Now the descendants are going to create a theme park on the land where the Hatfield house once stood. It’s great to have curiosity about an event in history, but I wish people weren’t so fascinated with violence.

There is going to be a new show on TV that I hope won’t do well in the ratings. I think Kevin Bacon is a great actor, so I would love to watch a TV show with him as the star. But the program is about serial killers and sounds pretty gruesome. I haven’t watched a full episode of the show, “Criminal Minds,” but what I did see was frightening and depressing.

Why shows like this are entertaining, or movies such as “Saw” or “Hostel” are popular, I don’t know. I wish people wouldn’t put their attention on this extreme negative behavior.

I pesonally think all the violent vidieo games and shows of killings raping should be bared as only installs violence in the already disterbed minds It's not the guns that show how to kill it's the TELEVISION lets monitor what is watched. sterbed minds.
