    Media violence has always been a red herring of the politically useless
    liberal set and the intellectually challenged social science set and
    always will be.

    The people living amidst violence smell real blood and see real bullets.
    They answer in kind, or they answer in flight, or they answer in fear,
    because they are human and they feel.

    There is no preparation for violent motive or action from media images
    and never has been, nor has there ever been any needed for man to kill
    his neighbor or his kin or his enemy.

    Pushing off the relentless capacity for evil upon an image is sheer
