The magazine reports the following:</p><p>"The electronic age is changing our brains, but are we getting smarter, or dumb and dangerous? New Scientist investigates Devin Moore, who was just 18 when he was taken to an Alabama police station for questioning about a stolen car. He was initially cooperative, but then lunged for his captor's gun. He shot the man twice and ran out into the hallway where he shot a second policeman three times. He let off five shots at a third man before making his escape in a police car. All three men died from shots to the head. When Moore was finally captured, he is reported to have said, "Life is like a video game. You have to die sometime. Two years on, he sits on death row."</p><p>Two years ago attorney Jack Thompson, representing the victims' families, filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Take-Two Interactive, publisher of the Grand Theft Auto game series; the Walmart and GameStop stores for allegedly selling the games to Devin. In Grand Theft Auto the player decapitates police officers, kills them with a sniper rifle, massacres them with a chainsaw, and sets them on fire. The game has sold more than 35 million copies, with worldwide sales approaching $2 billion.</p></div></body>
