After watching LOST tonight we stuck around and watched the local news discuss a new program to rate Day Care facilities here in Louisiana. I could not have prepared myself for the debauchery that the following story would tell. Some douche in Australia has created a flash video game in which you get to reenact the Virginia Tech massacre. They interview this prick and he smirks as he tells the camera that he created it for others who find amusement in things the same way he does. Of course there’s outrage across the media and internet and I wished I hadn’t but I did…I dug around for more info online. I didn’t even spend 5 minutes and I felt so sick I wanted to vomit.
Apparently the creator of a game where you get to reenact the Columbine massacre is even criticizing this guy’s intentions and morality of his game…I’m sorry, I began describing this and I can’t even do that. This just disgusts me and I have no idea what to do about it. I process things by talking about them and venting here has calmed me down a bit. I just can’t begin to imagine how a person finds joy in creating, producing, and distributing this filth. His callousness was deepened by this shallow challenge that with enough money he would take his game off the internet. For $3000 he would issue an apology for creating the game. I’m simply dumbfounded on how to respond to that.
