Re: Adam Lanzas hard drive

Had to see this coming.

We do know that Lanza played violent video games. And he played them often. However, it's very difficult to say what kind of impact these video games might've had on his violent actions.

Unfortunately, that bolded part of the quote is not true. It'a very easy to say all kinds of things regarding purported impacts of video games on people's actions... but it's scientifically and legitimately proving the impacts that's "very difficult". A lot of easy-to-say things will be said about a lot of things surrounding this tragedy... and are being said even now - especially by a media hungry for face-time ratings.
