July 20, 2012 Aurora, Colorado shooting: A mass shooting leaves 12 people dead, and another 58 injured at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. The mass shooting occurred during a midnight screening of the film The Dark Knight Rises. A gunman, dressed in tactical clothing, set off tear gas grenades and shot into the audience with multiple firearms, killing 12 people and injuring 58 others. The sole suspect is James Eagan Holmes, who was arrested outside the cinema minutes later.
A screenshot of an article by Dr. Aric Sigman where he proves that violent movies have an influence on children. This article was published 4 years before the 2012 Aurora Shooting had occurred. Here he explains that "new neurological evidence shows that children are unable to distinguish between fictional and actual violence" A very very interesting read!

"While the govt doles out billions of SS reserve funding to collect child support along with court action, children are denied their fathers either through minuscule visitation or no visitation. I was the daughter of one such arrangement and didn't have much of a relationship with my father until I got much older. Not happy about it then, not happy about it now." Jan Smith Olympia, WA
