Anti-Video Games Senator Yee Arrested for Corruption
Filed under: POLITICS

Leland Yee, California State Senator, was arrested today for bribery and corruption. You may remember Senator Yee from such legislation as the violent games bill AB-1179, which attempted to ban all sales of "violent" video games to minors. The Supreme Court struck down the bill as violating First Amendment rights.

The FBI raided San Francisco's Chinatown district, which included the detainment of "computers and other documents" from Yee's office in the state capitol.

So how interesting is it that someone who proclaimed so vehemently that video games were damaging to psyches and to "the safety of our community" was arrested for corruption? Maybe it was Yee putting corporate America ahead on his agenda instead of the Supreme Court, as he once claimed when the Court struck down his bill.

This article fails to mention that Yee was against guns, as well as games. He was arrested for corruption and gun trafficking. Baptists and bootleggers.

Because violent games have caused a decrease in gun crime across american youth, so games are EVIL...
get it, for his gun sales profit...
