On This Day: Trolley Square shooting

On February 12, 2007, Sulejman Talović killed five bystanders and wounded four others before being shot dead by police at Trolley Square Mall in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States.

This massacre was mentioned recently in a research article published by Texas A&M International University assistant professor Christopher Ferguson, that states that scientific literature has found no significant relationship between violent video game exposure and school shooting incidents.

Thank you.
If violent video games / music / films caused mass murder, we'd all be dead :-)

Thanks Riot-Grrrl.

I agree that there would definitely be more than just a few cases if it were true.

I think that people ignore the real causes- issues like bullying and social isolation, and just blame it on media, because it's easier.

Must be a coincidence then that these young mass murderers were all violent video game junkies and also mentally unstable. Sounds to me like a deadly mix and it's happening more and more.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
