Just a game................



You jump from behind the door, aiming towards your enemy you fire your weapon, one shot, two shots, three shots, blood spatters all over the wall behind him, he falls backwards to the floor.

You run, towards the stairs, fast, very swiftly you reload your weapon, ready for the next enemy who lies in wait, you perform a forward roll, and slow motion takes place, you aim for his head, and one, two, three shots, propels him backwards, blood flying from his head, he screams in agony.

You dash, trying to beat the clock, the hostage is still a captor, you have to make it, one, two, three, four shots to the next offender, he takes a little more time to kill than the others had, but round the next corner you come face to face with the hostage taker, he's using this little girl as a human shield.

You have to do something, you can't just stand there and watch, that's not why you are there. You take hold of your sniper rifle and aim using the scope, his head in your sights, you take the shot, a bang rings out, his head explodes with a red mist, he falls to the ground.

Something flashes up in front of you:

OBJECTIVE COMPLETE.

To a young Police Officer like you, computer games are just that, games. They are not reality, and the actions that you perform on screen, you would never attempt to duplicate out in the real world.

But Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold thought differently, they killed twelve of their fellow students, one teacher and wounded twenty four others. To them, it wasn't just a game.
