Un-explainable, like two planes colliding w/ three towers (9/11)

Sure, it was problematic an eight year old was playing GTA IV. But this obviously begs the question: why was he permitted to play it? I don't think anyone is clammoring for a ban or anything, but just some responsibility. An 8 year old shouldn't be playing this.

Agreed. An 8 year old, even a right-minded one, doesn't have much of a filter or a firm grip on reality. There's a reason we don't prosecute children.

Played turok, resident evil 2, conkers bad furday when I was around 8. They should be able to play these games. I see no problem with it.

And I played Tekken 3 when I was 8 but you didn't see me go around trying to kick people in the face.

You were fine. So was I. But for many kids, it does have a negative effect (i.e, tendency to induce violent behavior).

And I watched all kinds of horror movies when I was that age, didn't do me any harm either, but not every kid is the same. Best person to judge is the parent. My cousin tried to swing from a curtain rod like Tarzan after watching a movie. He's an idiot to this day.

You know. These stories always fail to dig deeper then ''Oh! He was playing GTA IV minutes before the killing took place''. Where did he get the gun? Why was the gun in an 8yr old's reach? And more importantly, what events lead up to him snapping like that? Stuff we may never know, but may get over looked.

I bet if Scarface was being watched minutes before the killing it wouldn't of even been included in the article.

Not to sound heartless, as this is obviously a terrible tragedy . . . but the lion's share of the blame for what happened belongs to the grandmother, not the kid.

She was his primary care giver . . . yet he had access to violent media and a fire arm. If this kid had shot the mailman, the grandmother would have likey been held responsible.

This was a preventable tragedy and, as unsympathetic as it may sound, the person who should viewed as the most culpable for what happened (imo) is the deceased.
