Of all the things I have learned by reading news; parents don't want to parent
the government takes it upon themselves to parent
both blame anyone and anything but themselves when someting goes wrong with a child
This case shouldn't win, but it is stronger for a few reasons. Often the connection between the act and the game itself is simply that of violence. However, the parallels between their crime and GTA are very similar. And usually, as mentioned above, the parents/government are the ones singing the tune of blaming the video game, not the actual minors involved.
Don't mistake this for me agreeing with any of it. I also agree its on the fault of the kids themselves and the parents.
