Five students were wounded when a gunman opened fire in the cafeteria of a suburban Cleveland high school just as the school day was beginning Monday, law enforcement officials said.
The suspected Chardon High School shooter -- believed to be a student, according to a school official -- was in custody, FBI Special Agent Scott Wilson told reporters.

no one was ever killed by a video-game-toting assailant

I know this is a video game forum and all, but I wish we wouldn't be so on the defensive about that, especially post-Jack Thompson. Does that angle even get much play these days? (Fox doesn't count.)

Nice that no one else was killed this time, anyway.

I've never seen Fox go anti video game. However, strange enough, I've notice them drop references to EA games (IE Modern Warfare, etc) in a positive light as if EA Games and News Corp have some sort of shady deal going on. Haha.

Chardon is way the hell over there, it's not even near Cleveland. Like an hour away and surrounded by forests.

As an Ohioan I have nothing else to say about this.

I just deleted the message before my parents got home so they wouldn't have to live with two seconds of fear before the jackass on the answering machine announces it's a school nowhere even near my little brother's school.
Dumbass people WE MUST CAUSE PANIC

Good to hear no-ones dead though.

I can think of a few instances off the top of my head, and that's just stuff that went viral since I don't watch Fox (I fully acknowledge that they probably have some decent programming in there, I just take issue with their more ridiculous and opportunist stuff). They propogated the whole Mass Effect sex scandal, for one. Also there was that time they ambushed some indie developer about video game violence by putting him opposite some anti-games mouthpiece who was obviously just rattling off a pre-planned statement and had no interest in engaging in a dialog but instead just filling the timeslot with as much hyperbole and unfounded bullshit as possible oh wait that's pretty much a given. Last one that comes to mind is a slot where they criticized Sim City or something for encouraging eco-friendly measures as being LIBERAL GREEN AGENDA PROPAGANDA or whatever.

And now I've done the thing I just discouraged earlier in the thread. :v

This made me guffaw. I don't typically guffaw either, so it startled me. **** you for startling me.

I guffawed at your post also. This would become some kind of unstoppable chain of guffawing if I said something funny here but I didn't.

I think another person died in the hospital a couple of hours ago.

Chardon is fairly close to my highschool, so rumors about the shooting spread like crazy at the beginning of the day.
