What BS, Now its the computers fault !!!

Again I come across a story of a young boy shooting up a mall due to the fact he played an on-line FPS game !!! I am so friggin sick of everyone blaming outside influences: music (remember Elvis) and movies ( OMG Freddie, etc) and now its goddamned video games. Kids will rebel, defy and run away !!! It’s been happening since the beginning of time. And kids long to be part of a group, any group, and if that group is on-line where they can feel like they are part of something then of course they will join. Being an outsider sucks. I for one don’t think gaming clans should allow minors, mine doesn’t, but many do, just to increase their membership, sad really that they consider that a “clan”. These bigger clans don’t even want to know their members real names much less where they live. But also sadly these are the clans that would be good hunting grounds for perverts. Social networks are just as damaging when minors are allowed free use of them. I see 12-year-old girls posing in bikinis and boys with guns….so damned cool,  and the parent are the first to say “I didn’t know anything was wrong” when they show up pregnant or shoot up their schools. Try being involved parents instead of self-indulgent losers and it may make you the most influential person in your child’s life. Instead of an on-line game, social network etc they will garner their self-esteem from knowing who they are in life instead of just on a computer.
As have serial killers, molesters, sickos of every kind actually been around since Adam and Eve, it is just the prevalence of the internet brings it closer to home. Try supervising the kids , watching what they play and/or do on the internet.
Games are games, I remember the same claims touted when dungeons and dragons was popular years ago. Does anyone get upset when our youth spend every waking hour practicing/ playing sports, what a degenerate lot sports creates huh, child molesters, adulterers, wife beaters and murderers, but lets encourage our kids to join their ranks shall we??? Or the Saturday hockey nights where Dad and his buddies get trashed and end up fighting over the “game” ??? These activities do not bring on a claim of creating degenerates simply because they make the almighty dollar!
Kids are impressionable and need supervision and good role models and if you are not being these things they will misguidedly find them elsewhere. PERIOD.
