Blaming games is foolish.
Really? The latest news outlet to report that this mentally disturbed guy watched a LOT of violent video games, is the LA Times, tonight: http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-shooter-profile-20121218,0,7751800.story
Now, his killing spree at the elementary school was like a real-life violent video game. To rule out, categorically , any connection between the two — THAT’S foolish.
Watched video games, or played video games? Kind of a loose statement there.
Establishing a connection without providing a factual basis to back that connection is idle speculation with nothing to stand on.
Again, violent movies coming out of Hollywood are much more likely to influence such an individual, IMO, due to the realism factor. Why has that not been pointed at as a possible “connection”?
And other killers (maybe him too?) no doubt watched a lot of movies, watched a lot of porn, watched a lot of sports, watched a lot of news/politics...
You can’t make a case for cause and effect based on that.
But really the point is that a nutcase can start killing because of song lyrics, books, his neighbour’s dog or any other insane reason. We can’t put the blame on whatever hobby/interests the killers have and start trying to adjust society to fit crazy people.
If you want to blame anything medication seems a more likely culprit. Asperger’s doesn’t need medicine.
