To my surprise, I was watching the news about a you man who shot up a police station, and several officers while they were booking him, he managed to get loose and get a hold of one of the cops gun, and did the damage from there. After he was caught again and asked why he did what he did, he said it was because of a video game "Grand theft auto" in which a suspect pretty much goes after police officers. This is one in many of instances I have read of, or seen in the news about people blamming a t.v show, or video game for influencing their criminal activities, to make this even more interesting, the cases are actually being taken on by Lawyers who are defending the people who commit the crimes, and trying to sue the video/t.v industries for x amount of dollars. 1: I personally dont by it, if you do the crime, you do the time, PERIOD! where do we draw the line for personal responsibility 2: Is it possible the Violent T.V/Videos really are contributing crime in the U.S? although I dont suport everything that the T.V/Video industry puts out, I still think we should hold each individual responsible, or am I just missing a bigger picture here. 3: Do other countries have this problem?
