    but I think it is all inter-related. Without having a sociological  discussion, I do think the systematic desensitization  of violence is key... it spurs what you have termed as juvenile behavior, but I also believe that there is an element of depressed ethics/morality as well, whereby violence and criminality is valorized, as we see in all these examples.  One need only look to Sarah Palin's crosshairs to see a similar trend whereby violent imagery becomes normalized (for some), the deleterious effects notwithstanding.
