Bill Gates blamed for Virginia Tech shooting

Filed under
Misc

US morals advocate and publicity hound Jack Thompson has suggested that Bill Gates and Microsoft are responsible for the tragic shootings at Virginia Tech.

According to an early report in the Washington Post, the Virginia Tech shooter, Cho Seung-Hui, was a fan of violent video games, especially Counter-strike, which Microsoft publishes for the Xbox. The reference to Counter-strike and violent video games has now been removed from the report, but that hasn’t stopped Thompson from lashing out at Gates.

In a letter to Gates, which he also sent to Game Almighty, Thompson suggested that Bill Gates had moral duty to “pull the plug” on Counter-strike.

Full Story.
