    • Hi Asher, I agree with you that violent video games are just an easy excuse that people use to avoid talking about the more abundant causes for violence in today’s youth. An idea you had that I thought would help solve this conundrum was that parents should put more effort into controlling what video games and media their children are exposed to. I think this would work because it would remove the scapegoat of video games and let people talk about what other causes there are for people committing crimes.

    • Hi Asher, I thought what you wrote about was really interesting. It’s extremely unfortunate that Richard had to serve time for a crime that he did not commit and I think that the resemblance between the two is shocking. His settlement of 1.1 million for being wrongly imprisoned is really good, but it’s still sad to see that the justice system fails to look at all the evidence being placed in front of them in situations such as this. The only thing that I think would have made what you wrote better would have been if you could find information about the phone and why the stealing of this phone was so important that someone was being jailed for it. Other than that great job and it was super interesting!
