    xD Justin Timberlake...

    Anyway...

    I did this as a project in my ICT class, of all the research there's absolutely no relationship that wasn't a petty crime. There are no full blown murders that can be proven by videogames. I did find out that adults aren't easily manipulated as children, because they're subconscious. Children are more likely to do something idiotic, fact.

    It's adults fault for letting children play those games though and leave their kids alone, take Charley and his freaking huge domestic cat for example.
    I love you, Adam.

    The evidence says that the person that did the shootings was mentally unstable.
    It was the state of his English essays that showed that he was becoming mentally unstable
    Also he went to counseling
    So there for you cant link it to Video games
    As a fervor point I have been playing said violent games all my life and im ok no killing sprees from me

    Anybody living in NYC might want to take part in an event aimed at fighting back against Jack Thompsons propoganda.

    “This demonstration is to show that gamers will not take the blame of this tragic matter but we will do what we can to help put an end to terrible events like this. We reiterate and urge that all leaders of gaming communities, organizations down to the last gamer to set aside 10 hours of this day to pay respect and come together not just as gamers but as HUMAN BEINGS for peace.”
    Fellowship of the Gamers will take place on May 5th, 2007 in New York City at Bryan Park. The event starts at 1pm EST.

    If anyone's gonna head down and wants to represent Wii Chat let me know and i'll see if i can sort some stuff out for you

    exactly, the problem here is the Buckley Act.
    "(d) Students' rather than parents' permission or consent. For the purposes of this section, whenever a student has attained eighteen years of age, or is attending an institution of postsecondary education the permission or consent required of and the rights accorded to the parents of the student shall thereafter only be required of and accorded to the student" ( http://www.epic.org/privacy/education/ferpa.html).

    This clause (in context with the rest of the bill) says that once you're 18, your university does not have the right to release information about your academics to your parents, legal guardians, or ANYONE.

    So yes, Prinny, it was obvious, through his work, that he was becoming a harm to himself, and his community. But the sad, sad thing is; Legally, there was nothing they could do about it.




    And the never of jack Thompson to come out the day of the shooting blaming it on video games! What an ass! He didn't even give family and friends time to grieve before he jumped into his bullshit.

    Woahh Man wish I lived in NYC, I would represent Wiichat

    It was absolutely disgusting that on the tragic day he was pinning the blame on video games. It should have been a day for mourning, and to respect the people who died and their families, not go around blaming things you have no proof of.

    We were discussing this in Media yesterday, now think of this, us in the UK play exactly the same games and watch exactly the same movies as people in the U.S.A, yet there's been nothing at all like this in Britain.

    Now I'm not blaming it on the U.S but was discussed in the class that social groups out in the US are TOTALLY different to what we got over here. I mean the way we see it (sorry if this is incorrect) is that if you're like a goth like.. really hardcore and stuff then you're a full on outsider over in the US, while over here their not seen as 'outsiders' and 'freaks' we just accept them for who they are.

    So like the Columbine shooting the guys we're in trench coats and stuff and we're 'outsiders' and I dunno there was stuff to do with the whole 'outsider' stuff I do believe. And all this puts a hell of a lot of preasure on them because it's totally different to what we got in the UK.

    So my point is, how can video games be blamed when we in the UK play exactly the same games and stuff like that don't happen over here?

    I think Jack Thompson seriously needs to be stopped.

    Thanks for reading if you did guys.

    Bare in mind that she's a cop, I mean sure someone will kick up a fuss if a cop goes there protesting about something...

    Or they might not want her to go?

    But we'll just have to see

    Corey Brotherson had mentioned JT in a previous article of his and the resulting discourse was very similar to what has been posted herein - I personally don't subscribe that the issue is the recent appalling shootings per se - although sad as they are, but believe that the real problem [relating to this thread] is that JT is allowed by the media to spout; what is extensively; propaganda for his cause without any real common sense being pulled out of the bag by anyone but gamers themselves.

    We could all say, for example; "...a child was killed crossing the road yesterday, seemingly in an attempt to emulate his favourite video game - Frogger - which was found in his collection...video games of this ilk should be banned etc.etc"

    This is the type of example that media types can turn into mom and pop opinions without any basis whatsoever of course.

    From what I have read, JT is; as is usual with dictator types; only preaching to the converted who listen but rarely take any significant action against the video game industry - if you read his website he sends out letters, 100's of them [mainly to Bill Gates!! - yeah! like he reads his own mail ] - and whips up a storm in the proverbial tea-cup of course - after all Killer7 is still on the shelves!!

    If you have an opinion voice it, it's your right - if you take that opinion into the public domain - at least back it up with tangible facts to support that theory please...I own and play Killer7 and I aint killed anyone...yet (do do dooo)

    Nuff said!

    So this is how it's going to end?

    Goodbye world.
