Thanks to an anonymous reader for pointing to a Philadelphia Inquirer article linking videogames to an alleged spree killing attempt.
According to the article, "Investigators suspect the three teens arrested.. as they allegedly were about to launch a killing rampage in the small town, found inspiration in violent computer games.. [police] learned that the name the three reportedly had given themselves - Warriors of Freedom - is also an Internet-based combat game."
But only a few media reports mention that the violent game connection was made by Jack Thompson, a Miami lawyer and outspoken critic
of violent video
and computer games
- is this a case of shameless Googling
to find any obscure game
with a similar name and make a connection, or is there genuine evidence here?
