Playing video games does not make you a mass shooter, expert says
During a speech on Monday addressing the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, President Trump call for an end to — or substantial reduction of — the "glorification" of violence in "gruesome and grisly" video game culture. While some are quick to blame video games for real-life acts of violence, experts say there is no such link.
"When it comes to actual serious criminal violence, there's virtually no evidence that video games matter," James Ivory, professor and research director at Virginia Tech, told CBS News.
Ivory has researched the social and psychological dimensions of media, particularly the content and effects of video games. He says he's determined that a lot of things influence violent crime — but the media we consume is not one of them.
These countries have a warning for travelers: Rethink your U.S. vacation
If you’re an American whose vacation plans include, say, Ecuador or Beirut instead of Disney World, there’s a good chance some concerned fellow citizen will grasp their pearls and ask, “Isn’t it dangerous there?” Sadly, as a plague of gun violence continues, mass shootings go unanswered by the government, and gun sales continue unabated, people in other countries may be feeling the same way about the United States.
Now, in the wake of two mass shootings that killed 31 people, foreign nations are warning their citizens about traveling to the U.S. due to unchecked gun violence.
After the Dayton shooting early Sunday, the Japanese consulate in Detroit warned Japanese residents to “be aware of the potential for gunfire incidents everywhere in the United States, a gun society,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

San Francisco’s Humane Policy of Hospitalizing the Homeless and Mentally Ill
They’re a vast improvement over California’s incoherent commitment policy.
The rapid decline of San Francisco is emblematic of the corrosion now typical in California’s once-glorious cities.
Needles, human waste, and litter are ubiquitous on the city’s streets. San Francisco’s homeless population has exploded; some estimate that as many as 10,000 people live on the street, a census larger than the entire population of almost 85 percent of American townships. City residents have been disturbed by the size and behavior of the homeless population, some of whom, according to the Associated Press, have made a habit of “dashing into traffic or screaming at strangers.”

Mental Illness and Violence: A Primer
There was a shooting at my alma mater, Central Michigan University, last week.
A 19-year-old student shot and killed his parents in his dorm room. His dad was a part-time police officer in the Chicago area. His mother worked at American Airlines.
His roommate was there at the time and saw the whole thing.
The student then ran and spent the day eluding over 100 peace officers. They found him later that night, about half a mile away along some railroad tracks.
In 2008, the FBI narrowed its definition of “mass shootings” to where four or more people are killed, typically in the same location. But in 2013, they widened it to a much more general definition: “an ‘active shooter’ is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.” (Read more here.) It was the twelfth school shooting this year. And we’re only nine weeks into the year.

India's Monkeys Keep Killing People, so Scientists Are Trying Radical New Sterilization Strategies
One evening last November, a young woman named Neha was feeding her infant son inside their house in Runkata, a small town in the outskirts of Agra, India. Suddenly, a monkey broke into the house, snatched the baby boy from her arms, and made away with him. Neighbors chased the unexpected kidnapper with stones, but to their horror, the baby was soon found lying blood-soaked on a nearby terrace. Despite being rushed to the hospital, Arush, who was just 12 days old, did not survive. Perhaps this sounds like a freak tragedy, a rare case of a wild animal behaving outside its natural order, but truthfully, there was nothing especially rare about this incident.
