Connecticut Town Inviting Residents to Destroy Their Violent Video Games
On January 12th, at a drive-in theater off of the Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike between 9 A.M. and 12 P.M., a Southington, Connecticut awareness group will be hosting the video game equivalent of a book burning.
Each resident that brings in games depicting violence will have their act of “responsible citizenship” rewarded with a gift certificate worth $25 in value, donated on behalf of a member of the town’s very own Chamber of Commerce. On location will be a dumpster meant not only for the collection of violent video games but, SouthingtonSOS, the community group sponsoring the event, invites their neighbors to dispose of any other media that challenges citizen’s moral perceptions, including CD’s and DVD’s. Collected media will be destroyed and then thrown into the town’s dumpster for “appropriate permanent disposal,” according to SouthintonSOS.
I couldn’t have said it better myself. Bravo sir, bravo.
