    Really, Eeth? Are you competing for a spot in the thread?

    Morbid curiosity led me to search for and play this game. It's obvious that the game was not created as some thrill kill fantasy thing. It's dark satire intended to advocate for stricter gun control. The developer wasn't glorifying the shooter or making light of those who died at his hands. It's a piece of art with a strong and uncomfortable message. People are too quick to call him sick. Here's some info on the developer.

    [G]uns dont kill people, people kill people. (but people who kill people with guns have a higher kill ratio than the alternatives),” Lambourn, 27, tweetedearlier today.

    Developer Danny Ledonne explained the game wasn't intended to make light of the tragedy. “"All forms of art can be valid tools for societal exploration (even painful topics like school shootings),” he said at the time.

    Well that's one way to make sure your message isn't ignored.

    I can't really stress this enough, especially given the apparent context. This was a 20 year old doing something incredibly dangerous and irresponsible. Petty law-breaking and unreasonable risk-taking are pretty common in this age group, and so are these sorts of disastrous outcomes. That's exactly why we try to warn people away from it. She did something terrible, for which she will pay a significant price. But there's nothing here to suggest that she was at all especially monstrous. Let alone wishing for the sort of stuff you did (presumably in jest?) even if she had been. There are better ways of expressing outrage than torture fantasies.

    Rape and sodomize her? Does that mean the sodomy would be consensual?

    I'm going to guess that Eeth was being sarcastic and mocking the usual mob cries for torture that is rampant on the internet.

    That strikes me as a fairly stupid target for sarcasm.

    That Texas judge makes the ignorant one that sentenced the teacher to 30 days look pretty stellar.

    The Italians have always had a broadminded approach to "romance."
