Everyone on this site should read this. Basically ever since the PS1 came out violent crimes have gone down. Not only this, but violent crimes among youth has gone down as well. It actually shows a correlation between violent video games and the 'decrease' of violent crime. Hmmm...

Very good read, really interesting how the charts and playstation era match so flawlessly with one an other, gotta wonder what Jack Thompson would find to say about this -_-

What a great article. It just goes to show just how much media hype gets swallowed up in our culture despite plain facts that disprove it..

I remember reading this article about a year ago. I forwarded it to Jack"videogamesrbadmmkay& quot;Thompson, and many other news sites. I never heard back from ANY of them, surprise surprise, especially Jack. I encourage everyone of you to forward this article to news stations, your politicians, EVERYONE. The time to expose the blatant lies about videogames is at hand. We have to do something now, b4 it is too late.

Send them emails every single FRACKING day, do not give up, just like Andy never gave up in sending out letters in Shawshank Redemption.

The media does NOT want this to get out, as this will immediately discredit the YEARS of bullchit they have been feeding the lemmings (general population)

Please, please, please.....continue to forward this article on a DAILY basis to the media and politicians.
