Vocal Point-Jack Thompson
Topic: Violent Video Games & the Alleged Parkland Shooter: Is there a link?
Did violent video games play any kind of role in messing up Nicolas Cruz’s sense of right and wrong? Cruz faces trial as of this recording for allegedly shooting up students and others at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL on February 14th, 2018. Jack Thompson once wrote a book called Out of Harm’s Way, which deals with the negative impact of violent video games. Jack, whom Howard Stern once called a “lunatic lawyer,” was a guest twice on 60 Minutes, talking about the negative impact of violent video games. Jack Thompson joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the issue of the potential link between the Parkland shooting and excessive playing of violent video games on the part of Nicolas Cruz. email@example.com
