I don't like the flashy biased title of this Tweet. To suggest that his crime has anything to do with with his stance on violent video games is tabloid journalism and pandering to the emotions of the video gamer audience. I could similarly write a sensationalized tweet for a christian conservative blog stating "pro-life foe rod blagojevich found guilty on 17 of the 20 counts...". To imply that one has anything to do with the other is tabloid bullshit.
