‘School Shooter’ Video Riles Adults

A video game that hasn’t even hit store shelves yet has educators and parents in an uproar. The troubling game is called “School Shooter: North American Tour 2012”.  The premise of the game is so disturbing it has been pulled from its host site data base. The object of “School Shooter” is to murder as many defenseless students, teachers and staff as possible.  To do so the player uses weapons modeled after the ones used in the school shootings at Columbine High School and Virginia Tech/Othello Richards, KREM. More here.

Question: What does it say about our culture that such a video game as 'School Shooter' is even being considered?
