7-24 Scoot Show 9p, Being Numb to Violence
Gallup Poll shows that 22% of Americans believe the best way to fix Congress is the fire everyone. Do you agree? If every incumbent across the country was voted out of office - do you think that would be a step toward convincing politicians that "we" are demanding action? AND: A young boy is told he is not allowed in a donut shop after asking a women in the shop if she "had a baby in her belly." The woman was not pregnant. When the child returned with his parents - the manager told him he was not allowed. Overreaction? Have we been desensitized by graphic violence from Hollywood? We are compelled to watch real-world violence - even though it is not graphic - because we know it's real. Can you think of a real event that you watched and still think about - even thought the visual of the event is tame compared to the violence you see from Hollywood? The grainy video of the recent Bourbon Street shooting shows very little and nothing graphic - but we watched it over and over because we knew it was real. Does this mean we have not been desensitized to graphic violence from Hollywood?
