Of course, it's everyone's fault but the shooters. Classic leftie reasoning.

I believe media can influence the subconcious, if you watch or play violent movies/games, although you may never kill anyone, you have that aggressive mindset. I definately think videogames have gone way way overboard.

Anyone seeing really creepy parallels between what happened and the scene in that movie? Almost too close. I'm starting to wonder if this guy had a total reality break and thought he was in Star Wars.

Kids sit and play VIDEO GAMES hours at a time, day after day killing people. Then they can go to the INTERNET and find more vile things than their mind can possibly dream up. Then they can turn on the TELEVISION and see more immorality and extreme violence - wrestlers beating the crap out of each other, shooting, killing, rape, etc. etc. etc. Then they can go see a MOVIE with even "better" violence. Then turn on some MUSIC and listen to some violence.
Then when they actually do kill each other we wonder WHYYYYYY? HOW DID THIS POSSIBBLY HAPPEN???????

Wake up America!!!!!!!!!!

So a baby dies in Pakistan because of the US Govt, and nobody cares, but when a bunch of children are shot up by an insane white male alienated disturbed oppresssed suburbianite, we give a dam? WTF AmeriKKKa? This reminds me of a Stalin quote:

Kill 1 person, it's a tragedy, but kill 1 million, it's a statistic.

Let us care about our human family as well, during this tragedy. Let's stop glorifying the murderers, and start honoring the victims, and their lives, and work to have a better day. We can do better, and we're f-in Americans! Why shouldn't we!?! We get better... that's what we do. We lead the world. We Empire the world, so let's lead them, for how to be civilized. Come on people! Is this the world yall givin us? Come on now!

This is the one statement that you have ever made on topix that has even remotely resembled making sense. What about all the children that Obama has murdered through drone attacks? What isn't this murderee being prosecuted? Or at least banned?

Obama's imperialism pales in comparison to W. Bush's. They are WAR CRIMINALS.
