Video Games and shootings

So the great Jack Thompson has come out again and said that the NIU shooting was about video games.

That’s right.

Not about the asshole being off of his meds. Not that he might have needed psychiatric help. Video Games.

As if counterstrike was set in a classroom. Perhaps if he played Guitar Hero instead he would come in and try to jam away at DragonForce and wow everyone with an awesome solo.

It’s comments like this that make me sad to be a human. Instead of recognizing a problem and working on fixing said cause, people jump to some innocuous scapegoat to fixiate their blame. Good job people. Perhaps next time we can sue McDonalds for making us fat…

Oh wait… that’s been done?


Meh, I’m going to go play some Theme Hospital so I can help people with their appendicitis.
