He was a 12 year old big boned toddler with a heart of gold, he had a bright future ahead of him. He wouldn't hurt a fly. He was a founding member for the Institute For Kids Who Can't Read Good and Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too.

Until the evil racist white man shot him in the back for jaywalking.


that center is a scam, the kids cant even fit in there.

This letter is getting signatures from all sorts of developers... And while I'm not advocating harassment and threats, the internet is an open forum-you're going to have to learn to take the good with the bad.

This seems to be about silencing criticism as much as anything else, and Anita, Phil, and Zoe certainly deserve criticism for their actions... Lying, manipulating, filing false DMCAs, mis-representing gaming and demonizing gamers... And of course, further eroding the integrity of gaming journalism.

The fact that every gaming site and so many developers seem to be siding with these people is worrisome, to say the least.

And on the other side of the coin, you get these fine gentlemen from 4chan:

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/08/gofundme-campaign-for-ferguson-shooter-drowns-under-racist-commentary/

To act as if everything is the fault of the trio/SJWs while continuing to ignore the elephant in the room, the toxic behavior of the gaming community, where it's everyone else's fault but their's, is equally hypocritical.


(1) 4chan is not the "gaming community", (2) raising money for a hero is not "toxic behavior".


How is the guy a hero?


He killed a violent criminal before he could victimize again, and was injured in the process. He deserves a medal.


Doesn't matter, hands up means don't shoot.

That's interesting how he managed to injure a police officer with his hands up. Face it, the guy was a thug who got what he deserved.

Hard to have your hands up when you're busy trying to grab the cop's gun.

Of course, that totally warrants emptying an entire clip at a distance upon a fleeing person right?

The whole thing is just childish at this point, the whole picking a side thing is something that happens on playgrounds . extremists on both sides. Its just like console fanboys throwing **** at eachother. No one is really going to listen to anyone


This is likely the most sensible thing that has been posted on these forums in a while, which means it will probably be ignored as rationality seems to be a foreign concept around here.

However, law enforcement officials say witnesses and forensic analysis have shown that Officer Wilson did sustain an injury during the struggle in the car.

Police shoot to kill. He aimed at center mass and kept firing until the target was down, just like he was trained to do.

Nice attempt at trying to cover for this savage thug.

When did the video game industry get infected with drama? Was it always here and I just missed it?


No, it wasn't always there.

Once, long ago, the industry was populated at it's forefront with people who cared about making great games.

Sounds crazy, I know.

You aren't even really reading my posts; you're just staring at your e-mail client and fondly reminiscing about that hobo you stabbed to death. :P
