School shootings and game violence. An open letter to video game journalists.

   0
After reading '10 years later, The Real Story Behind Columbine', I want to bring to the attention of game journalists, that covering a story where game violence gets blamed for the behaviour of criminals (even in a defensive manner), tends to fan the flames. Now that conclusive evidence has been brought forward that clears the name for video game violence, this is the time to take up the torch and make people aware of the fact. In time, I'm sure many of the perpetrators these school shootings and other violent acts will be exposed for what their real state of mind and motivation was. By that time the sensationalism in the coverage of the events have died down, but this should not go by unnoticed. You are in a position to raise awareness. You are the ones are heard. Instead of a whiny or sarcastic and unsubstantiated post in the defence of video games and the violence therein, take some time and and bring the real story to the attention of your readers so they can be armed against the accusations that go wildly flying whenever an event such as this occurs.
I have only read this one article and I don't claim that I know the real story behind these events. If you want to call yourself a journalist as opposed to a blogger, do some digging and bring us the truth.

I'll get off my soap box now.
