foiled the school shooting plot of five Riverton, Kansas youths yesterday after being tipped off to their plans via
MySpace. Yesterday's date was significant in that it marked the anniversary of the Columbine high school shooting in
Colorado in 1999 and was also Adolf Hitler's birthday. So we're talking about five psychologically disturbed teenage
boys who decided to solve their problems with guns.
Cue the video games made them do it explanation! CNN
reports that "investigators had learned the suspects were computer buffs who liked violent video games." Now
understand, about 110% of male teenagers in America play "violent" video games, so what's the real
connection? I would be far more concerned with the "documents about firearms and references to Armageddon in two
suspects' school lockers" than I would be about them shooting Strogg on the planet Stroggos.
