Where Is Rosie O'Donnell To Point Out The Link Between Violent Movies And Violence?

Or as one of my favorite headlines might read, "Ban The Assault Movies."

Sadly, there is a story out of the Milwaukee area, where an 18-year-old man has strangled his 18-year-old girlfriend. Whether there is a tie-in remains to be seen, but local media is harping endlessly about how the alleged killer watched the film "Natural Born Killers" 10-20 times.

Police say the accused has stated he and his girlfriend watched the movie that night. He told police that night that he "did it."

I can't bring myself to say ban movies, for the children. Because we all know it is not the film that makes someone kill, any more than it is a firearm that makes someone kill, or a spoon that continues to keep Rosie O'Donnell on the hefty side.
