Forced to agree with a mass murderer

Post by Ronin »

It really bothers but I agree with the quoted mass murderer's text.

Anders Breivik, the right-wing extremist who has confessed to killing 77 people during a murder spree in Norway last summer, played the violent computer game World of Warcraft nearly seven hours a day for several consecutive months before his attack, prosecutors say.

Breivik, 33, already known to have a long history with the online role-playing game, was particularly absorbed by it between November 2010 and February 2011, when he played for an average of 6 hours and 50 minutes per day, according to prosecutors.

The new evidence in Breivik's ongoing trial was presented in an Oslo court on Wednesday. When asked about his interest in the game by a prosecutor, Breivik angrily dismissed the idea that playing World of Warcraft had any connection to his attacks, according to media reports.

"It is not relevant to this case whatsoever," Breivik said, getting so upset that he threatened to turn off his microphone, according to Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang.
That bolded right there. It's really irrelevant. If he were say a grease monkey who worked on his cars for that amount of time a day, nobody would have even brought it up. Instead, we get this...only will feed the fearmongers who say gamers are bad and games are eeeeeevil. Think of the children...etc.

He killed 77 people in cold blood, but you bring up his video gaming habits and, whoa, that's upsetting.

I wonder if he's starting to worry that maybe they won't let him play WoW in prison.

Nah, Norway is more civilized than that. They wouldn't be so cruel.

I thought WoW turned folks into dead, mindless zombies, not killers.

No, it's Finland that does that. Example: Pillory.
