I read the reports coming from the interview/interrigation of Nehemiah Griego and it was just sad and pathetic.
Since these incidents usually end in the suspects death (which was apparently Nehemiah's original goal) I'm actually both interested and wary of seeing how the next steps play out. The media is already deeply focusing on his "gushing" over violent video games, and I'm wondering if that is where the focus will stop on the issue.
I'll state that I do believe violent video games to have the potential to influence someone to violence, but I also believe that those individuals who would be influenced are not only abnormal but most likely individuals who would just as easily find the inspiration from other sources once encountered.
The discussion that potentially holds the million dollar answer is if in this case we might get any credible data to help identify such individuals or if it is even possible to do so. Though that's a huge hope and an unlikely one.
I pose the question to those of the community as it whether or not they feel such investigation will be made or if it will simply be left to mainstream assumption and bias kin to "He played violent video games and that's all we need to know."
