    Link: Dissecting Jack Thompson`s Anti-Gaming Rant - A blogger broke down Jack Thompson`s Fox News rant about how video games caused the NIU shootings. Lots of inaccuracies.

    I say we get someone to kill Jack Thompson and right before this person shoots him, tell him that video games were not the cause of the shooting

    FACT: 100% of the school shootings in the last ten years were carried out by kids who played video games or saw movies at some point in their lives.

    FACT: 100% of kids who have lived in the last year have played video games of seen movies at some point in their lives.

    FACT: School shootings and other types of mass murders have been happening for longer than video games have been around.

    FACT: Kumquat is a funny word.

    neilyo, the absolutely worst thing that can happen to Jack F*cking Thompson is him being shot to death. If that happens that means he won. It will be like a hydra; kill of one head another 2 will pop up.

    So no, the best way for him to die is in a forgotten corner of the world, being ignored by everyone.

    So if he is right, I should be thinking about murdering him right now to stop him from harassing video games.

    Proves he is wrong.

    If anyone has played the (original games of the) Doom series, they will know how idiotic it is to think that it could be a `murder simulator`

    oh, and i jut love the last bit:
    5: I lost my train of thought. I wrote a book...
    Verdict: True
    Evidence: Jack did indeed write a book, and I think he lost his train of thought about two decades ago.

    I`m waiting for Jack to die from falling down stairs so I can rally and somehow blame God and say religion needs banned.

    Or how about he dies of a heart attack and I can blame fast food.

    If he can get popular so can I!

    Hey, you can get pretty mad at video games sometimes.... especially that one carnival level in Sonic 3 where the barrel is harder than heck to get past, I mean it`s OBVIOUS that that`s what caused this whole situation.

    This is exactly like the reason why my Grandma refuses to let me read Harry Potter. She`s afraid I`ll learn witch craft and join an evil witch cult or some crazy crap like that by reading it. It`s all complete BS.

    Hey putzpie, the barrel things in the carnival level in sonic 3 can be moved up and down by pushing the corresponding buttons while sonic`s standing on them.

    Come talk to me next time you need sonic advice

    I was playing Counterstrike when I was in high school, and I never went on a shooting spree.

    I guess I must be retarded or something.

    "I`m waiting for Jack to die from falling down stairs so I can rally and somehow blame God and say religion needs banned."

    Woah, wait... what? I can see a connection between heart attack and fast food, but damn. How does that even work? "I fell down the stairs because the Bible said so" or "God told me to throw myself down the stairwell" or "Satan possessed the stairs and assaulted me" or what?

    Jack Thompson may just be the biggest jackass since Ted Stevens gave his keynote "Series of Tubes" speech. And I think Sen. Stevens made a better point.

    I hate how as soon as these shootings happen, everyone goes crazy trying to psycho-analyze the shooter. It doesn`t help anyone, and it makes stupid people paranoid about everything (like video games). Stick with the obvious- he (the shooter) was unstable and off his meds. Why do we need to make up more reasons? Jack Thompson takes it too far, acting like such a know-it-all.

    violence in video games does conform us to violence. it does all that stuff but does it really "cause" violence. thats the question.

    Yep, B-Hazard seaks the truth. After playing Viva Pinata I always seem to plant seeds and expect them to be fully grown in about 10 minutes. And a desire to beat animals with a shovel, because no matter how much candy I feed them, the hearts never appear over their heads.
