CBSNews:Officials have not publicly revealed what led them to the motive, but sources say investigators have found evidence Lanza was obsessed with Breivik. They’ve also recovered what they called a “trove” of video games from the basement of Lanza’s home. Sources say Lanza spent countless hours there alone, in a private gaming room with the windows blacked out, honing his computer shooting skills. Lanza also made multiple visits to nearby gun ranges with his mother, Nancy Lanza, where they practiced together with actual weapons. Three guns, all registered to Nancy Lanza, were used in the Sandy Hook massacre. Lanza used a fourth weapon to kill his mother before his attack on the school.
Yes, because obviously, playing video games where you hone your “computer shooting skills” is so much more effective than going to a fucking gun range with real weapons where you are getting Mommy’s approval. Does this mean that if I play Forza for countless hours in a private gaming room with blacked out windows that I will drive a stock car at Daytona better than the people that practice with real cars?
And if I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: the media needs to take some responsibility in this because they give stardom to criminals by never letting a topic die which feeds attention seeking psychos a road map to immortality.
Funny how CBS write the article that a) points out that the Newtown fuck up was trying to out kill an internationally renowned murderer that b) the press still talks about and puts in the limelight yet c) doesn’t take any responsibility for helping to give either whack job attention or d) is encouraging copy cat criminals to follow the same path and e) shirks any blame on itself by blaming gaming again.
Pulitzer material, to be sure – at least it sells well.
