It’s time for a book video game/CD burning!

The Daily Press:

The 42-year-old pastor of Abyssinia Baptist Church, at 3001 Wickham Ave., in the heart of the troubled Southeast Community, met last year’s surge in shootings with prayer marches, anti-violence rallies and alternative programs to help young people find jobs.

But he believes there is a place for burning, too, especially if the targets are violent games and CDs that he believes turn killing into a game for bored kids.

“We are considering having something similar to a rally where parents and children can bring CDs and video games that they consider are destructive to the mind set of our youth and have a burning, just like they had a gun buyback last year.”
