Forums - General Discussion - Police Believe Sandy Hook Shooting Was An 'Emulation' Of Video Game Scenario

Adam Lanza is a dirtbag. There's nothing else to it. The guy was a mental case who needed professional help. Or perhaps some real, non-gun toting time with his mother.

While the reason behind the Sandy Hook shooting may never be realized, it's certainly not due to video games. 27 people were killed at his hand and we are still looking into the fact that he owned "thousands of dollars worth" of violent video games.

Now the police are looking into whether Adam Lanza was emulating a video game scenario while he massacred innocent kids. I've never read such bullshit in my life.

Good call police force. It's the video games that caused this. Not the guns within arms' distance, the fact that he used to shoot with his mother, his sensory integration disorder, or his Asperger's syndrome.

Nah, none of those could have been the issue here.

fucking retards

They always blame and hate new things they don't understand. Arrogance by people who think just because they're doctors or judges means they're always right about everything they say. They're not. Gold doesn't flow from their mouths on a daily basis. Hurry up virtual reality, be invented and/or refined so you get blamed.

Why is it retarded to see if there isn't a link between the games he played and the events that played out?

Yes, fits perfectly with the international explosion in school shootings that has occured with the rising popularity of games....

It's not retarded to research if videogames had something to do with it. What is retarded though, is how conclusions like this are being made even before anything has been researched!

Also it seems to me like the same people who support guns are always the ones that are making such 'links' between violence and videogames. Anything to keep the attention away from the real problem.

That's a strawman. Even if that weren't true, the link is trivial to anyone honest about this and not "defensive" about violent games.

Another example is guns. True guns don't kill people, but put them in the wrong hands and it makes for some silly situations.

@Somini, just read your reply. Funny how I mentioned guns in my reply to hsrob :)
