I was listening to Disc 2 of La La Land's Friday the 13th box set in the car today, and realised that as much as I love it, most people would find it odd that I listen to this sort of stuff. It got me thinking. You know when someone commits a henious crime and the police look into his or her background. They say things like...he had violent DVDs, he collected weapons etc.

Well I hope I never get accused of something, because if they fish through my music collection, I can't help but think my purely innocent hobby might be a signal of some sort of deranged mind!

Thoughts?

Don't confuse media editorial commentary with policework.

When "they" or "people" talk about violence in media owned by a violent criminal, it is simply people trying to retroactively make sense of what is essentially a senseless act.

The Police, FBI etc. don't look for these things. Instead, they look for more express things, like a verbalized threat, or the purchase of large amounts of fertilizer.

They look for a genuinely troubled upbringing, or a past propensity for excessive violence.

They look at what they see at a crime scene, and figure out who was there.

This is evidenced by the fact that most people see and enjoy violent films, with an incredibly small number of them even noticed in any way by any law enforcement.

So the answer is simply: NO.

Can we have expedited long setences for anybody they find with a "Man of Steel" or "300"?

"He listened to this devil worship music called 'Ave Satani', guv."

Only dumbwits would take a passion for movies and movie music as a sign of something wrong.

I think law enforcement has bigger things to worry about than what's playing in your car or DVD player.

Let's see, equating the collecting of soundtracks, or DVDs, with potential future problems with law enforcement.

Wasting time....much?

I recall that immediately after hearing the mess Intrada made of one particular release, I was driven to frightful thoughts of strangulation and head-lopping. So for sure, the soundtracks one listens to can be a decisive factor.

It's usually the people with zero 'flags' nor interests who flip out and go on a killing spree, hence the neighbor who will comment afterwards 'he was such a nice fellow, who'd have thought he could be capable of such acts?". Therefore, I think you are safe. Just stay away from people who listen to Celine Dion and Cher! wink

In jail, not.

Maybe.

Shoot, from the thread title I thought maybe the OP was referring to boots, grey-markets, and illegal downloads!

OK, guess I won't have to plead the fifth...

I made the same assumption. (I'm listening to LLL's The Fury right now. OMG, what a fantastic score!)
