Spong reports on how Mr Jack Thompson may need to move over, Louisiana State Representative Roy Burrell has upped the ante when it comes to mixing fact and fiction to make political capital.
Burrell says this:
"Psychopathic killers are not born, they are made! Maybe our judge and news editor should tune into the national cable stations and consider using their professional tools to assist in areas that will help stop senseless activities and deaths due to extremely violent information being fed to our children.
This is the Representative that loves the HB 1381 which was made law in Louisiana in June 2006, and over-turned as unconstitutional in November the same year. This law would have enabled judges to rule on whether a video game was too violent to sell to children.
Burrell will not let it lie and tells The Shreveport Times readers the following today: "The unsuspected cost of $100,000 to taxpayers for legal fees (to get HB1381 reinstated) is but a small price paid to save the life of just one child, given the many killed or maimed, linked to the mind-altering harmful ultra-violent video games.
