Jack Thompson Is Back
I somehow knew that Jack Thompson would eventually surface to blame video games for the terrible shooting at Northern Illinois University. He did the same thing last April with the Virginia Tech shooting when it turns out the killer there only played Sonic The Hedgehog. It’s a real shame that Fox News continues to spread false ideas about gaming on their broadcasts. They really need to be more careful when choosing people for their interviews. Jack stated that he wishes he wasn’t there at the beginning of the interview. I also wish he wasn’t there.
My heart goes out to the people of NIU as I was present for the shooting at Virginia Tech and certainly know what it’s like to go through something like this. It’s unfortunate that the press and various individuals will use what happened in both places for their special interest agendas.
