In an interview on MSNBC's Hardball programme, Thompson came out and said he believed Seung-Hui's habit of playing Counter Strike played a key roll in how he managed to go around the campus and kill over 30 people.
if it turns out that Jack Thompson is a hardcore gamer in some sort of secret life. Kinda like that preacher that bashed homosexuality but turned out to be gay.
noooo not counterstrike.. i loved counterstrike.. see it was the strafing that allowed him to aim well.. with minimal mouse movement.. stupid thompson
I was looking at the article on the linked site and it referenced the show but I didn't see any link to video. It's not that I really want to hear JT, but I wouldn't mind hearing the context of his argument. It's always wise to know thy enemy.
@SmokeyMcBearc..first off...love you tag pics...a new one almost every day..and from what I can tell the same gal so i will say lucky you assuming its your gal. Secondly.....it was not just the strafing but it was the circle strafing that really led to it all. ....agreed, stupid thompson!
i wish man.. i wish, but no its not the same, my chicks got big boobs but no butt.. i guess there has to be a trade off somewhere, haha.
heres the video
ill add it to the article later
his suitemate said he never saw the kid play any sort of video game, i love how that's left out.
is an idiot. Actually, no, he's not an idiot, he's an evil, lying, attention whore. He is very smart when it comes to dodging questions that would make him look like an ass. He knows how to twist facts, and make him look like the messiah. He's loving the attention, and the money he gets from taking so many different people to court.
all I want to know is did this giy who did this actually play "Counter-Strike"
and even if he did, in counter strike is their a part in the game where you have to find a way to get a gun somwhere, buy the ammo and learn to get into a school carrying a weapon undectected and then killing over 30 ppl???
Was that the PREVIOUS mass killing spree was at the hands of a guy who played Counter Strike. Jack doesn't know the habits of Cho he was just saying something game related for that's all he has for vocabulary.
Just read on Fox News that someone linked a pic that looked somewhat similar to a movie released in South Korea. Now in no way can it be connected to that movie for all the stuff he mailed to NBC had nothing about the movie let alone video games.
Cho was an English Major who spent time writing bad plays with foul language about abusive step parents and corrupt teachers he want's to kill. Along with spending time making a documentary about how he's going to kill all these people.
Jack's credibility is down to the masses now. For they can see he's just talking hot air. Cho was never know to play video games he was know for being by himself and writting.
Wow, it incredible how he uses the word, "Trained" when refering to playing. So, now that Thompson has proven that games train people to be effective killers now tax payer's money don't have to be spent in academies to train solders or law enforcement agents. Give them a PC, PS3 or 360 and a few shooting games and they are ready to go to Iraq or fight crime in the street! wow Genious!
