Increase in violence predicted from next-generation video games: You thought it was bad now with Grand Theft Auto? Just wait.

Jury: Dad Killed Baby Over Broken Xbox

Quote:

(AP) PHILADELPHIA - A man who spent long hours each day playing video games was convicted Tuesday of killing his 17-month-old daughter when she pulled down his Xbox console. Prosecutors believe Tyrone Spellman pummeled Alayiah Turman, cracking her skull several times, while her pregnant mother napped in another room in September 2006.

Jurors rejected arguments that Spellman confessed to protect the mother and convicted him of third-degree murder and child endangerment. He was acquitted of first-degree murder. He could be sentenced to about 23 to 47 years in prison. Spellman fled the house after the beating, and the mother, Mia Turman, had no reason to go in the bedroom where the baby was found, prosecutors said. "He (Spellman) spent six to seven hours a day in there playing Xbox," Assistant District Attorney James Berardinelli said.

Spellman, 27, of Philadelphia, confessed to police the next day, but defense lawyer Bobby Hoof noted that his statement came after 24 hours in custody. "That game controlled me."

An autopsy showed that Alayiah had suffered a broken arm about two weeks before she died _ an injury that city social workers did not see on two visits to the house in late August, when they found the baby well. The city took custody of the couple’s second daughter, born after Alayiah’s death.
This study shows why this happens:

VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES CAN INCREASE AGGRESSION

May Be More Harmful Than Violent Television and Movies Because of the Interactive Nature of the Games

WASHINGTON - Playing violent video games like Doom, Wolfenstein 3D, Mortal Kombat or Halo can increase a person's aggressive thoughts, feelings and behavior both in laboratory settings and in actual life, according to two studies appearing in the April issue of the American Psychological Association's (APA) Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Furthermore, violent video games may be more harmful than violent television and movies because they are interactive, very engrossing and require the player to identify with the aggressor, say the researchers.

"One study reveals that young men who are habitually aggressive may be especially vulnerable to the aggression-enhancing effects of repeated exposure to violent games," said psychologists Craig A. Anderson, Ph.D., and Karen E. Dill, Ph.D. "The other study reveals that even a brief exposure to violent video games can temporarily increase aggressive behavior in all types of participants."

The first study involved 227 college students who completed a measure of trait aggressiveness and reported their actual aggressive behaviors (delinquency) in the recent past. They also reported their video game playing habits. "We found that students who reported playing more violent video games in junior and high school engaged in more aggressive behavior," said lead author Anderson, of Iowa State University. "We also found that amount of time spent playing video games in the past was associated with lower academic grades in college."

In the second study, 210 college students played either a violent (Wolfenstein 3D) or nonviolent video game (Myst). A short time later, the students who played the violent video game punished an opponent (received a noise blast with varying intensity) for a longer period of time than did students who had played the nonviolent video game.

"Violent video games provide a forum for learning and practicing aggressive solutions to conflict situations," said Dr. Anderson. "In the short run, playing a violent video game appears to affect aggression by priming aggressive thoughts. Longer-term effects are likely to be longer lasting as well, as the player learns and practices new aggression-related scripts that can become more and more accessible for use when real-life conflict situations arise."

"One major concern is the active nature of the learning environment of the video game," say the authors. "This medium is potentially more dangerous than exposure to violent television and movies, which are known to have substantial effects on aggression and violence."
Let's say that I'm not surprised that this is happening. How long will it be until the next video game related killing? How many people will have to die then?

Hopefully next year's video game burning will have an even greater amount of contributions. The folks at Landover are truly doing the Lord's work by protecting the youth of America from this aweful temptation.

Praise!!

Goodness, Brother Nobar, that man was only 27 years old?

The horrible things that crack, meth, and XBox can do to a man! Why, he's only one year my senior!

And these "gamerz" claim that their videogames are harmless, indeed!

Terrifying. If playing violent video games can lead people to kill babies, how long can it be before fans of Super Mario Gaylaxatives start buggering each other senseless in imitation of the game? Not long, that's for sure.


O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it--for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.


God being truth, justice, goodness, beauty, power, and life, man is falsehood, iniquity, evil, ugliness, impotence, and death. God being master, man is the slave. Incapable of finding justice, truth, and eternal life by his own effort, he can attain them only through a divine revelation... he who desires to worship God must harbor no childish illusions about the matter, but bravely renounce his liberty and humanity.

Another video game killing:
Quote:
Girl dies after being beaten with video game controller

YORK, Pennsylvania (AP) -- A 2-year-old girl died after being beaten with a video game controller by her mother's boyfriend, police said Tuesday.

Darisabel Baez died Monday. Her mother's boyfriend said he beat the 2-year-old but didn't explain why, police said.

Darisabel Baez's mother overheard the beating Sunday but did nothing until she realized the girl was unconscious, police said. The girl was pronounced dead late Monday at Hershey Medical Center, police Lt. Ron Camacho said. Homicide was added to the list of charges against Harve L. Johnson on Tuesday; he was already in jail on counts including aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.

The girl's mother, Neida E. Baez, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. It was clear from the bruises and other injuries on the little girl's body that Sunday was not the first time she had been abused, Dauphin County coroner Graham Hetrick told WGAL-TV. He said it was one of the worst cases of child abuse he has ever seen.

Baez, 19, called for an ambulance Sunday and said Johnson had brought the unconscious child to her, limp and wet from an attempt to revive her in a bathtub, a police affidavit said.

Johnson, 26, acknowledged beating the girl with a video game controller but did not say why, police said. Baez said that Johnson had abused the girl in the past and that she heard the girl scream after Johnson beat her Sunday,
according to the affidavit.

Detective Dana Ward said Baez was charged because she did not intervene or try to get help for Darisabel. Johnson and Baez remained in custody Tuesday. His bail was set at $200,000; hers was $25,000. Through police, family members declined requests for interviews Tuesday. Court officials said they did not know whether Johnson and Baez had lawyers to speak for them.


May you be a blessing to every life you touch.

I completely agree, I could do a google search for "game causes death" or "video game violence," and post it here and make all kinds of claims that violent video games inspire violence in *all* people who play them, but then I'd be a hypocrite. You know why? Because I've played violent video games, GTA ( 3 and 4 ) Doom series ( 1 and 3 ) Quake 4, many first person shooters, Hellgate: London, Mafia, Crysis, The Witcher, Diablo (all), F.E.A.R., just to name a few. And hey, I'm not a violent person.

So quit making the assumptions that violent video games are horrible tools of destruction. Who do you think you are? Jack Thompson? Don't you know a judge disbarred him from a court in Florida for his lunacy?

It's really just because of your generation's views on anything technological or seemingly mind altering.

I was wondering exactly the same thing, Undecided.

What a decidedly anti-Christian rant! Perhaps the violence of the games he's played is showing itself!

Perhaps my previous post did come off a bit aggressive, but it was because of the ignorance people display toward games that display gratuitous amounts of violence. Do I believe that little 12 year old Johny should be running down civilians in games like GTA? No, that's what the ESRB is for, a guideline for parents. Unfortunately, some parents aren't smart enough or are just negligent toward their child. But this is irrelevant to the game itself and the developers.

I just get disappointed when people immediately deem anyone who plays/has played a violent video game as a psychotic rampaging misanthropic serial killer.

And to Undecided, I didn't ask to be a TC, I believe it was Billy-Rueban(sp?) that granted me such a title. Either way, I'm not going to put bias into my posts to reflect my "title."

This also brings to light the fact that there are what? At least some 80 million people playing violent video game? (This statistic is grossly under-rated considering that some mmorpgs have 5 million subscribers alone).

Just because a couple unbalanced retards do something unchristianlike and against moral fibers, doesn't mean that the whole lot is bad. Just because someone gets food poisoning from eating an undercooked steak doesn't mean that cows are out to get us.

Just because one religious fanatic decides that someone did something wrong and deserves to be killed doesn't mean the religion is wrong. (IE, someone decides that Baptism is wrong because one Baptist doesn't think that you should put women on their time of the month into a tent isolated for a week; doesn't mean that Baptism is wrong.)

Just because one gamer does something atrocious doesn't necessarily mean that games turned him that way. Maybe he was naturally drawn to violent games because he was violent in nature to begin with.

Peace from Christ,
Shalifi

And just because you like to ramble on in a pseudo-intelligent manner doesn't mean that we should pay any attention to you. Unless you choose to include Scripture to back your statements, but I don't see that happening any time soon.

P.S.
Thank you Jenny.

P.P.S
Seems like Pastor Billy ought to have thought a bit harder before making that move. It looks like TC status is just being handed out these days.

Because we just through common sense out the window then, right? How about you suck up a little bit more to get the ever esteemed title. Your inane reply just shows what little common sense you have.

You think I really even care about what mine is? It's not like this website will even be here in 20 years.

P.S. Good post Shalifi, but prepare to get flamed and called anything from a "nigra, homer, jew, catlick, fag, ect," before anyone even bothers reading your post. Because you have to look beyond what the title is and instead at the post someone makes. But it'll be a while before that happens. ( if ever, and yes, I'm eyeballing you, Ezekiel ).

If they were playing a Godly game of tactical paintball instead of the video games, we wouldn't have this problem now would we? What will these kids come up with next? We've already got them negroe "gangstas" wth all their problems. What with the "playa-hatin" and "ho dissin" they've got enough to worry about without any encouragement from the Grand Theft Auto. Can I get an Amen?

P.S. When did you decided to leave your shrubs and find a computer, Undecided?

Gangsta's came before the game. So it doesn't matter whether or not they picked up a game like GTA or some other gangsta type game or not, since they were already set in their ways long before the advent of computer games.

Games like GTA were marketed in such a manner that would make them appeal to the younger crowds ( 12-20 year old teenagers) Because they knew the market for this generation was lucrative and games like that would sell on all platforms ( consoles and PC's ).

This seems like as good a time as any to remind users of the evils of apostrophe abuse.


May you be a blessing to every life you touch.

Here's the latest video game related killing:
Quote:
Man kills neighbor over missing PS3

by Joshua Fruhlinger, posted May 9th 2008



Being a protective console owner is one thing, but taking obsessive love for one's system to violent ends is a whole other ballpark. Take the story of Edward Keith Stoddard Jr. who was arrested last night in Dade City for murdering his neighbor over a missing PlayStation 3. He's accused of murdering neighbor Douglas F. Abrams when the two were arguing over the PS3 in question on April 24.

It's such a sad thing to hear that someone had to die over something so trivial. Sure, most of us love our systems, but not enough to kill for it. It's not clear whether the PS3 was the only reason for the murder, but even if it wasn't, it wouldn't matter. The story would end the same -- someone's dead, the other's in jail, and the PS3 still missing.
How much do you want to bet that that knuckle dragger quit work early so he could ignore his family and play GTA4 all day long. I don't think they have PS3 in jail, dude.


May you be a blessing to every life you touch.
