    These kids, and any kid who commits violence, does so with full knowledge they are going to cause some trouble. Hell they wouldn't be doing it otherwise, because their motivation is the twisted pleasure of violence and control. When they get caught they realize “holy sheet” it's time to pay the piper and now start blaming it on anyone else who could possibly take the guilt and repercussion off of them. They are evil little kids who knew exactly what they were doing.

    Now if you DO think that they should have all responsibility washed off of them, then I could place some blame on the parents since the game is rated Mature for strong violence and blood. If it's possible to blame someone else I vote mom and dad since they let their kids play the game. And even though these kids commit atrocities, mom and dad are there to nullify what they did and re-enforce evil behaviors as being OK!

    Right and wrong, evil and good does not boil down to a video game. Or come to think of it, a book or a movie or a television show or a song lyric. Especially when several times in the past history of this country legal shenanigans of this nature have been tried as a means for guilty parties to escape reality.

    I know allot of you agree with me, just posting my own take.

    doesn't it all boil down to people who dont want to take responsibility for their own actions? it is more convenient to blame something or someone else. this is very similar to the murders over a live action d&d game down in some tunnels under a college campus.

    whatever you call it - twinkie defense, mickey d's, media, etc - it's all the same thing and the legal defense system (and more over the entire legal system) is allowing that kind of crap to be used as a "temporary insanity by means of..." plea.

    Memory : I would argue that someone who is going t ogo nuts and kill a bunch of people will do so with or without the influence of outside forces (such as video games). The games may add a bit of flavor or style to the killings, but they do not turn some one into a killer.

    i play gta vice city constantly and not one time was i ever inspired to go out and replicate actions in the game.

    the game carries a rating of M for mature. they should change it to M & NR => mature & not for retards

    Hey, this is crap!!! If every kid was inspired by the games he/she played then we would all be killing each other. Ive got two words for these stupid sh**s. "Mother F***er" These kids are just insane and should be locked away forever. Put the key in a key grinder and grind down the pins, melt it down and throw it out. Then pour cement into the lock of their cell. Bye-Bye boys!
