WILLIAM D. CLARK: ACLU, video games to blame for child violence

TO THE EDITOR:

In the wake of the shooting tragedy at Newtown, Conn. the media and pundits are having a field day of trying to find out why this could happen.

It would be very interesting to have them check if this shooter ever heard of the Ten Commandments. I grew up when the schools would recite them at different occasions. The teacher never put forth any religious group. Now, thanks to the ACLU, this has been a thing of the past for a long time.

I remember when a woman forced the schools to ban Grimms Fairy tales because of the ogre that said “fe-fi-fo-fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman.” Now there are video games that are very gory and violent that children can play and kill hundreds.

If you want to place blame, put it where it belongs.

The ACLU and the video game industry.

I believe we as a nation have lost our common sense.

We are now reaping the grim harvest at the cost of our beautiful children.
