Wanna-be ninja freaks out and assassinates milkman @ 09:05 am

Oh wow... I'm listening to NPR and they had a segment about John Boyd Malvo (the DC Sniper) and they were saying he was brainwashed by Muhammad and that's why he shot all those people. That I could probably understand but they're claiming that part of the reason he shot those people was because he was forced to watch violent movies and play violent video games.

Albarus was not permitted to talk about Malvo's impressions of the film. But she said she watched the movie and saw Malvo in the role of the hero, Neo, who brings about a massive societal change. Muhammad filled the role of Morpheus, who served as Neo's mentor, Albarus said.

"Neo was going to contribute significantly to change of the system," Albarus said.


Albarus is the social worker assigned to the case. In addition to the Matrix, violent video games, and even the mini-series Roots were sited as potential causes of the shootings.

Read the rest of the article and tell me what you think.

bahahaha, I love it. Exploit every retarded American belief for the best defense ever.

Americans think Islam is the devil right now, and they think violent video games/movies are the cause for all violence in society. Lets combine both of these and claim they're responsible!

i don't give a damn if he watched the matrix ever day since it came out. it was still his CHOICE. for fuck's sake, that's the major point of reloaded even, choice!
humans are responsible for all actions they take. be it becoming a fat fuck at McDs, killing 500 people, or voting for George Bush, it was still their choice to do these things and they must take responsibility for it.

The big problem is NOT that he watched the Matrix or played Grand Theft Auto it's the he lived with a freaking psychopath! I mean come on, the dude was totally and completely nuts. They could have been watching Barney and it would have affected his mind.
