I agree with you 100%. I understand video / online games are fun. But there are all types of video / online games.From the article:
The eerie videos show 21-year-old Robert Crimo's gaming avatar standing on rooftops and shooting down his opponents in a game of Call of Duty.
n the video game posts, gun shots can be heard ringing out while players are heard laughing, yelling and directing one another. It's unclear which voice is Crimo's.

Very interesting article. Talks about both sides of the argument on gaming and violence and shooters. Of course, studies say there is no effect on boys/teems and increased violence and these video games.
You all know how I feel about this. And, when you let common sense in, it is strange that all these shooters have had a history with these very violent video games.
I don't care who does what study - I truly believe that these games play into the psychopathy of these boy/teens that turn into these monster shooters.
It is just my opinion, my belief and is quite obvious to me when discussing all these cases.
oh & ETA
LE has said that he planned this attack for weeks - well, seems he also had a stage to practice on too. What better way to plan a mass shooting than to "practice one in an online simulation"?
Why do parents allow these violent games with such horrible images to be available to their children's developing teens minds. There are so many other things for teens to do and experience that will help them mature into well rounded adults. Isn't it our job as parents to "raise up a child in the way that they should go?" I just don't get it.
