Look out! You’re talking with a dangerous video game player! I could snap and shoot you in the face at any second! Never mind that I don’t own a gun and the few times I have handled a real one it was only ever pointed at harmless paper targets. I’m a gamer, that makes me dangerous according to idiot attorney Jack Thompson. Seems some teenager got mad at someone who refused to let him borrow a car so he beat the guy and then shot him in the face. Thompson, always on the lookout for ways to get his name in the media, urged the local police to seize the teen’s video game collection offering up the following bit of nonsense as justification:
“Nobody shoots anybody in the face unless you’re a hit man or a video gamer,” Thompson said, adding that the apparent repeated “pummeling” of the victim is consistent with scenes in violent video games.
I guess that must mean that VP Dick Cheney is either a hit man or a video gamer, eh?
