I keep reading this article about Justin Bieber's little fans making death threats to the likes of Kim Kardashian, because they joked about her being his "girlfriend" and such... I mean, I had a SUPER crush on George Michael (yeah yeah) when I was a kid, I was a member of his fan club, had my room plastered with his posters and all that jazz, but I certainly never felt the need to kill anybody he was supposedly "dating"...
And while I'm at it, Justin Bieber, really??? I mean, he sounds like a girl, and he kinda looks like one too, what's the appeal?

Of course they are. They've all (well NOT all) become desensitized.
Kids kill and act aggressively on a regular basis through video games and watch killing take place on things like Family Guy, Simpsons, CSI, Cold Case not to mention all the random stupidity on shows like Jack-Ass and the like.
Murder and violence (even violent threats) have become part of our everyday American lexicon and the viewing norm.
Threats and aggression are thrown around all the time on kids cartoons. Even the tamer ones.
Is it any wonder why the aggression rate has become higher and at a younger age given these factors??
I've even heard of Toddlers getting expelled from preschool due to violence! Toddlers!
It's a shame what the media, pop-culture and of course certain parents' lack of monitoring (ie; parenting) has done to our children.
