Add the /s so users know..

... he probably also sometimes ate fastfood, read comicbooks, went to school, maybe he had a pet, perhaps he had a girlfriend who broke up with him...!?

...MAYBE...JUST MAYBE... he did the same things EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD AT THAT AGE DOES!?!?!!?

But hey, I guess the fact that he MIGHT have liked videogames, made him a crazy killing nutjob...(!)

Nice going, CNN. That's really some objective mature realistic journalism you've got going on there...(!)

Apparently, blaming games as the cause of such horrid events is still acceptable. Doesn't society always tell us to take responsibility for our actions? How hypocritical.

jony_dols2306d ago

I believed that he also used to watch a lot of daytime TV. Maybe the cast of The View should be sent to prison?

Seek society does say take responsibility but they always add an /s at the end in their heads.

The worse part of stations saying nonsense like this is that they mention that terrorist represent a small minority of a religion but for games, it seems to be all of us.

Heh, yeah.

And you gotta love the evidence:

“This has been something he has really been into. And now we’re going to find, probably on facebook or anybody who knows him will say, ‘Yeah, he did have a lot of interest in that, He was always playing the video games.”

Because you know...the mentally sound 20-somethings out there are NEVER into video games.

everybody plays video game.. So am I. i am not planing on shooting people though. and trust me if that guy was muslim like me they won't say anything about video games they will say islam did it.

UnSelf2306d ago

and if islam didnt do it, the parents did. Self-responsibility doesnt exist on this planet

Nimblest-Assassin2306d ago

This really pisses me off.... a shooting happens... and they have no proof that video games are the reason this crime occurred... but lets blame them anyways.

If a person is psychotic... they already have the mindset to kill someone... they don't need videogames to inspire someone

People really love to blame video games

Wow its crazy how people predicted that this was going to happen and I really don't think it was video games that made him do that. Blaming things on other seem to be the easy way out. I played lots of shooters and violent games but I don't have thoughts doing anything like that. The guy was already messed up in the head.

They're also going to be trying to make gun laws more strict. Politicians and news sources are going to turn this event into a lot of different controversies.

Why is video gaming even a big thing for investigators? Its way too common now. Playing an app on your android even counts as gaming. Its as common as watching tv now. Do they profile criminals based on if they watch tv or not now?

Dan502306d ago

I heard he drank water....and breathed air....OUTLAW WATER AND AIR!!!!

Bathyj2306d ago

I heard he also wore boxer shorts all the time.
Those things are clearly evil.

jony_dols2306d ago

Boxer shorts only become evil when you wear the same set for 6 months straight.

Bzone242306d ago (Edited 2306d ago )

So Guitar Hero was the cause of this?

Also I don't think she's actually blaming video games. She's blaming psychopaths. Changing up the line from Scream, She's basically saying "Video games don't create psychos. Video games make psychos more creative"

That said, I hope that this doesn't even make it to trial. He'll probably go for the insanity plea. They need to put him in general population and let things play out. Give a prize to who ever gets to him first.

StoutBEER2306d ago

Couldnt agree more. But there are plenty of people in prison who have young children of their own. He wont last a month.

The major cable networks have sunk to a new low when TMZ does a more thorough investigation then CNN.
