I'm not saying banning computer games will solve anything, in fact I am saying the opposite. My main point was that Cho is a product of society.
Maybe he could have been helped, maybe he couldn't. Its the manner that everyone is laying into him now... makes me think what they were like to him
I don't think identifying faults in people (Bullying also) and rejecting them as people is the way forward... getting people help, being more open
to mental illness and accepting people for what they are could help society not produce Freaks as in this incident.
And I am not targeting American society only, because this happens all around the Western world but more frequently ends in suicide rather than
But at the end of the day this is the reason this occured, it didn't occur because of a computer game, because Guns are available for purchase. As
soon as people realise that the way in which societies are structured can produce this kind of individual, steps can be taken in preventing future
Pointing the finger and slating people (Bullying) is not the answer and will undoubtly make fragile minds think more irratic.
