What Video game do you KILL CHILDREN??
I missed that?
I think Mary Ellen O'Toole, who worked for 15 years in the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit where she studied psychopaths and helped capture killers said it best and is right on target when she said
"O'Toole said people with Asperger's aren't known to commit such violence and that too much is being made about Lanza's mental health.
"It's time we stop putting out the mental health issue as an excuse that he didn't know what he was doing," she said.
I agree with her...There are so many people who are or could be classified as mentally ill who have zero in common with this "bad guy" So much focus is being put into understanding the hows and why's "he was mentally ill..His mother left guns around a mentally unstable young adult"
So much so it is taking the focus off the fact he made a choice..The reality is there are people on this earth who's one goal in life is to hurt others. Like people who use airplanes as missles to kill innocent people. These are "bad guys"
At its core this was a mass murder suicide that had a great deal of thought and planning to it..He didn't snap..It was designed to inflict maximum damage and allow for him to feel a sense of supreme power. Rather than go out a miserable nobody this "bad guy" wanted to go out securing his legacy as one of the worst monsters the world has ever known.
Give all school children UZIs (that would stop it). LOL :)
proud of yourself , idiot. You think this is funny you twisted piece of garbage?
You may think that personally, and thats okay by me if you don't want to watch stuff with over the top violence, but to suggest that watching it is what turns people violent... nah. I'd say our culture is what does that and these games and movies are a reflection of our culture.
Now specifically talking about really serious mental cases, I'd say their condition is the main factor in allowing such heinous acts.
I know that Hitler was a BOSS in Call of Duty. Napolean pwnd all the fools in Gears of War.
This whole blaming VGs is nonsense. I play a ton of video games and I've never picked up a weapon in anger.
I wasn't referring to his diagnosed sickness. I was talking about living a life where you stand out, for what is perceived as, all the wrong reasons. I didn't even know he had a "mental issue" until after I posted what I did.
Life like that can get to anyone, do you think he never heard his own mother say don't turn your back on him, etc.?
This is just the tip of the iceberg, that I would feel safe betting on, of a life full of psychological abuse.
Who knows what scars some, that others can shrug off.
Just my observation, without all the facts.
Well maybe there should be a sanity test before you can buy guns, is it sane to teach a mentally ill person to use guns?. in the article it said she was teaching her son to use the guns (So the Mother herself was insane!).
How about rock music? Did they blame rock music yet? Because that USED to be the cause of all of the bad in the world before video games.
CALL OF DUTY OH NOES!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYONE IS GONNA RUN AROUND SHOOTING UP SCHOOLS NOW BECAUSE BLACK OPS JUST CAME OUT! HIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
