Any and every excuse to sling propaganda. The press reported more about the kid in Germany that killed 12 students and then 2 more people in a shootout with police at a Volkswagon dealer before killing himself. The press said two things that annoy me:
A teenage gunman who killed himself and 15 people on Wednesday in a rampage that began at his former school had apparently signaled his plans on an Internet chat room hours before embarking on the murderous spree, German officials said Thursday, as a portrait of a troubled and depressed youth began to emerge.
Mr. Rech said Mr. Kretschmer had been treated for depression but had broken off his therapy. The Stuttgart chief prosecutor, Siegfried Mahler, said Mr. Kretschmer’s personal computer contained pornographic images. The teenager had also spent time playing violent computer games.
Regarding the first quote. He revealed his intentions in an Internet chat room. OOOOOOOh, he talked about it in a chat room. People talk about crazy stuff all the time, even in chat rooms. If you hunted down every single person that acted weird, crazy, suicidal or violent in public or on the Internet, 89% of the world would be arrested. Come on now people, the world is crazy, people are crazy, you’re crazy. There was no way to stop this kid ahead of time and saying that if our civil liberties were violated by the government tracking our Internet usage is pure propaganda. Fuck that. Better parenting will prevent murderous rampages from happening, not invasion of our privacy.
I don’t have much to say about the second paragraph than this. Every single kid out there that is 12 years old with a computer has seen a naked girl on it (porn) and every kid has blown some shit sky high playing Halo. The way the article above is written, it is setting you up for the governments final blow on your civil liberties. I can hear it now: You support the murder of young women, like in Germany, if you don’t vote to make violent video games and pornography illegal.
