As a parent, I have to agree.

: I personally blame their parents. Not violence on TV and in video games, not rap music or peer pressure - it's the parents that are to blame.

In my opinion, TV and video games are to fault, but *only* to the extent that it's the parents who let the TV and the video games babysit and/or raise their children. Don't get me wrong; my son watches TV and has a gamecube, but I allow neither to run his life. As a parent, you have to be responsible enough to set limits, and to follow through when expectations or responsibilities aren't being met.

Some people want to have kids, but they don't want those kids to cause any disruption of any kind to their lives as they knew them prior to said kids. It's pathetic. And these kids are generally the ones who are lacking in the attention and guidance that it takes to not stab other children with pencils or step on principals' toes.
