According to this, anti-games campaigner Jack Thompson appeared on Fox News this morning to blame yesterday’s Illinois University shooting on games such as Counter-Strike.

As far as we’re aware, no evidence has linked anything that happened during the shooting with gaming in any way.

Stephen Kazmierczak opened fire on a class at the university yesterday, killing five and injuring 15 before killing himself.

    I knew this would happen I was watching the news about this shooting and just knew some twat like thompson would blame either games or music for this.

    Fairly funny though as the report said why does this keep happening. Hmmmm I don’t know maybe its to do with the easy access to guns and the tendency for most americans to be off there rocker.
