Murder by kids is a shame
and we all look for something to blame
Let's not get them help.
We'll just scream and yelp
and then put the fault on the games.
Sick people do sick things. Throughout history, mentally disturbed individuals have inflicted their sickness on innocents, leading to many horrific stories. Shifting the blame is stupid. In the 80's, Dungeons & Dragons was seen as the precipice off of which a child would jump to become a truly evil monster. Today it's Modern Warfare and Grand Theft Auto. The same story is being told, with only a slightly different villain.
Should a 12 year old be playing those types of games? I don't think so, and that's why I don't let my 12 year old play those games. But blaming the games for people acting out on their sickness is just stupid.
