Jack Thompson Blames Gaming For Connecticut School Shooting
Posted on Friday, December 14 @ 13:15:58 PST by Jonathan_Leack
Jack Thompson is back, unfortunately.
Dozens are injured and nearly 30 people are dead after a violent shooting in a Connecticut Elementary School. Jack Thompson, America's most anti-gaming activist, was quick to send an e-mail to Joystiq saying the following:
So apparently the same thing that has educated millions and entertained even more is responsible for motivating a mentally unstable adult to open fire at innocent bystanders and family. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.
The full e-mail hasn't been shared, and it's unknown how many it was sent to, but the point remains: this man is insane. How in the world is a gaming publication responsible, and more importantly, why would you send something so hurtful to other people? I guess Jack's Mother never taught him that if you don't have something nice to say, you shouldn't say anything at all.
RIdiculous comment aside, our hearts here at GameRevolution go to all affected by this tragedy.
