Jack T. to Bill Gates: It’s On, Bitch.

20 04 2007

/sigh

Not content with the fact that the VT shooter didnt play games during college, nor that when they searched his room, “Moral Guardian” (Read: Complete Asshat) Jack Thompson decided to take it upon himself to personally blame Bill Gates, head of Microsoft Corp., who published the game some years ago, for the VT Tech massacre.

The Letter via GameAlmighty:

Several Korean youths who knew Cho Seung Hui from his high school days said he was a fan of violent video games, particularly Counterstrike, a hugely popular online game published by Microsoft, in which players join terrorism or counterterrorism groups and try to shoot each other using all types of guns.’”

Mr. Gates, your company is potentially legally liable the harm done at Virginia Tech. Your game, a killing simulator, according to the news that used to be in the Post, trained him to enjoy killing and how to kill. You knew five years ago that your on-line game, Counterstrike, so clearly figured in the massacre by a student in Erfurt that the event and the game impacted the race for Chancellor in Germany at the time!

Yet, here you are, five years after “Erfurt,” still marketing Counterstrike. having done nothing to disable the server(s) for this mass murder simulator, and it looks like “Virginia Tech” is a consequence. There’s more going on in the world than Vista. Just ask the bereaved Virginia Tech families.

Mr. Gates, pull the plug on Counterstrike today, or do we need more dead to convince you? “Virginia Tech” was the 9-11 of school shootings, and it appears Microsoft is in the middle of it, in more ways than one.

If this isnt more proof that Jack is Batshit insane, I dont know what is. Bill is known to sand up for his good name. I wouldnt be surprised if we saw either a formal apology from JT (Unlikely) or a court case in a couple of days.

As My CoWorker so elequently stated: This would be like me going around the Dagobah system, mocking Stormtroopers, and then wtiting a letter to the Emperor himself. That would be crazy.
