Well I think you've just pointed to the date when things started going really bad. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 is when the FCC started the cell tower construction to explode! I think the microwave soup does have an effect on the population.
As for the new technology, namely cell phones with cameras. This causes a lot of problems with kids and bullying. They all want to record their evil doings and rush home and put it on Facebook or Youtube. In my state a young girl was lured to her death through Facebook by some neighborhood boys, raped, killed, and dumped in a recycling bin at their next door neighbors house. She was missing for days until the boys mother discovered her son's Facebook conversation. She turned them in.
So it could be too much technology, too much violent video games, too much SSRI drugs, too many violent movies.
I also just had to add, that were I live Central America in the state with a chimney, there has been a huge uptick in crime/violence in very secluded, forestry area's. Places that are just getting cell phone towers at that too. You have started to make me think even more than before about your theory.
Video shows last moments of cop-killers’ lives
Metro confirms officer’s shot killed Jerad Miller
Gunman killed, Henderson Police officer wounded in shootout
Officials: No connection to Sunday shooting of Metro Police officers
• Among the weapons in the killers' possession was a .38-caliber Ruger. Amanda Miller bought the revolver in Lafayette, Ind. It was not registered and not stolen. Metro is not releasing information about how it was purchased, because the incident is under investigation. • A Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm handgun was found on the Millers at Wal-Mart. It also was neither registered nor stolen. How it came into the Millers’ hands is also under investigation. • A Winchester 12-gauge, pump-action shotgun with a pistol grip was found on the Millers at Wal-Mart, and its origin also is being investigated. • Metro had doubled up its officers on patrol right after the shooting. They went back to single officers as of 6 a.m. today. • McMahill said video evidence from the shootings is lengthy, and investigators have not gotten through it all yet. What it shows so far, he added, "is exactly how ruthless and cold-blooded these murderers are."
Jared Michael Padgett was a straight-arrow kid who had a fascination with guns, planned a career in the military and was deeply devoted to his Mormon faith, those who knew him say.
