Violent video games incite kids to crime

first_imgDaily Telegraph 6 August 2012Knife crime is soaring among youngsters because brutal video games that reward players for murder, rape and theft have made violence seem acceptable, the state’s top cop said yesterday. Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione believes young people are being desensitised by spending hours acting out deadly scenarios on their computer screens. “The thing that’s concerning me is the prevalence of people who are at this stage not just prepared to carry a knife, but prepared to use it,” Mr Scipione said. “That has increased significantly.” He said he had reached the conclusion that there was “nothing more potentially damaging than the sort of violence they’re being exposed to, be it in movies, be it in console games they’re playing.” “How can it not affect you if you’re a young adolescent growing up in an era where to be violent is almost praiseworthy, where you engage in virtual crime on a daily basis and many of these young people (do) for hours and hours on end,” he said. “You get rewarded for killing people, raping women, stealing money from prostitutes, driving cars crashing and killing people. That’s not going to affect the vast majority but it’s only got to affect one or two and what have you got? You’ve got some potentially really disturbed young person out there who’s got access to weapons like knives or is good with the fist, can go out there and almost live that life now in the streets of modern Australia. That’s concerning.”http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/sydney-news/violent-video-games-incite-kids-to-crime-says-scipione/story-fn7y9brv-1226443402160Nonviolent videos better for preschoolers’ sleepReuters 6 Aug 2012Preschoolers seemed to sleep better when their parents were encouraged to cut kids’ exposure to violent or age inappropriate videos throughout the day, in a new study. Researchers found that within months after urging parents to switch their children’s viewing to nonviolent and age-appropriate videos, those children were about 20 percent less likely to have a sleep problem than kids whose parents didn’t receive the same advice. “One of the things that’s exciting for me is that if families want to make these changes, it doesn’t require going to the doctor’s office or going to a person’s home,” said Michelle Garrison, the study’s lead author from the Seattle Children’s Research Institute. Previous research has suggested a link between the kinds of media young kids see during the day and sleep problems at night.http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/06/us-nonviolent-videos-idUSBRE87505J20120806last_img read more

Cahill: Drogba is back to his best

first_img He said: “In the last two games he is fully fit now, he’s looking sharp and dangerous – exactly like he was when he went. He was massive for us on Tuesday and he got a vital goal. “Who knows how long he can go on for? That’s for the club and Didier to decide but at this moment we’ve started the season well and he’s been a big part in that. “What a character he is off the pitch. Obviously Diego is playing the majority of the games but Didier is getting back to match sharpness. Loic (Remy) scored but came off so to get them all back fit and scoring goals is vital for us.” Drogba has scored 160 goals in two spells for Chelsea and won the league three times, four FA Cups and the Champions League in 2012 before he left that year. Costa is expected to be fit for Saturday’s Premier League visit of QPR after suffering with a virus and hamstring and groin problems, b ut Cahill insisted the nine-goal hitman is not guaranteed his place back following Drogba’s recent form. The centre-back said: “There are options, not just up front but all over the pitch. “We have turned up on Tuesday with some fresh legs and some of the lads who played (at Manchester United on Sunday) and we knew it was going to be a tough game but we grafted and showed character and got the right result in the end.” Chelsea will move nine points clear of Manchester City with victory against Rangers with third placed City hosting Manchester United at the Etihad on Sunday. The England defender also believes Diego Costa will find it hard to force his way back into Jose Mourinho’s side at Stamford Bridge. Drogba, 36, scored in Chelsea’s narrow 2-1 win at Shrewsbury on Tuesday to fire them into the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup and team-mate Cahill believes the Ivory Coast star is on top form after his summer return following two years away. Gary Cahill has warned Chelsea’s title rivals that Didier Drogba is back to his best after scoring three goals in the last three games for the Barclays Premier League club. But Cahill said the leaders must not take three points for granted against second-bottom QPR. “We have a chance to get the right result and hopefully sit back and enjoy Sunday but it’s never easy, you have to prepare right, rest up and make sure we’re ready,” he said. “The onus is on us to be on the front foot, we need to prepare well and make sure we’re fully focused. “Last season we struggled at times against teams people thought we were going to beat. It’s never as easy as that.” Press Associationlast_img read more
