Basically, Indianapolis tried to pass a law demanding that kids prove parental consent to play violent games in arcades because they cause kids to go bad and the government is a better/wiser parent than parents are. Of course the city lost and has to pay all the game industry legal fees and other costs for fighting it. [url]www.starnews.com/article.php?legalfees04.html,news[/url] Goes with the "blame the tools, not the individuals" crap. Kind of like the same arguments about suing gun manufacturers. Personally, I wouldn't want my kids to play violent games, but I figure that's my job as a parent to teach them the difference between games and reality, and my right to let them decide when I think they are smart enough to know the difference. Gub'ment can keep there parenting to themselves.

Yeah, that's been the worst thing to come from Indy in quite a while. No one wants to place blame on the parents these days. If parents would be parents and not babysitters, we wouldn't have the problems like we do now.
