Not Liking Violence 

After the on air fatal shooting of two Virginia TV news staff was captured on tape and posted on the internet by the alleged killer, viewers appealed to social media outlets to take down the gut-wrenching video. Not only did they not “Like” it, they wanted it gone. In a July 2015 Huffington Post article about the Charleston church mass murders, “if you're sharing or "liking" stories about these crimes on Facebook, you may be inadvertently helping perpetuate the violence - and new research suggests that kids, in particular, can be led astray by that attention."  Read more about the effect on kids when violence is approved from Psychology professor Dr. Tom Dishion.(posted 9/1/15).
