    I favor holding people responsible for their selves and their actions.

    I'm not about to run out and kill someone because I watched Thor (a lot).

    Definitely. The problem is that some people with already strange set of mind may be encouraged by these movies.

    So you're still wanting to blame the movies for people's actions.

    Or a book, or a picture, or a story. Should we ban everything because it MIGHT give someone an idea? That is silly. You know that SOMEONE came up with the idea for the movie anyways. I suppose THAT person must be a serial killer in your mind.

    out of 350 million people you are going to have some that are not playing with a full deck....and a movie is not going to have anything to do with it... i think bullies are worse to make a person kill

    What about history? I guess we should censor history. Some people have done some terrible things, and it MIGHT give someone an idea.

    Those individuals - since they have the problems - need to learn how to cope. If a movie is going to push them over the edge then what else would be a factor? For my son it was just a boiling over of the pot, no TV influence needed.

    I'm not aware that a connection has been proven in entertainment leading to violence, although such claims have been made on the flimsiest grounds frequently.
