Their Winda Benedetti wrote yesterday: "Meanwhile, in the aftermath of the school shootings and the finger-pointing that followed, game players and industry advocates say they're outraged that the brutal acts of a deeply disturbed and depressed loner with a history of mental illness would be blamed so quickly on video and computer games. They say this is perhaps the most flagrant case of anti-game crusaders using a tragedy to promote their own personal causes."</p><p>MSNBC then quotes Jason Della Rocca, executive director of the International Game Developers Association, on attorney Jack Thompson. "It's so sad. These massacre chasers -- they're worse than ambulance chasers -- they're waiting for these things to happen so they can jump on their soapbox."</p></div></body>
