An interesting thing happened at the school campus Clements Fort Bent (U.S.). One of the students of the school was arrested after parents of other students have filed a complaint on him in connection with the creation of Counter-Strike maps, which repeats the territory of the school. The arrested student was 17-year old fan of Counter-Strike from China, which distributed a map for free download to all students through the school network.

Local police arrested a student on the pretext that he was carrying terrorist threat, however, because of the lack of clear evidence and the evidence, charges were dropped to the dismay of the complainants students' parents. And although no legal action against the student was not accepted, the school administration decided to delete it and move to another. One reason for this unusual arrest was shooting at a technical college in Virginia, where just two weeks ago, Cho Seung-Hui killed 32 people, including myself.
After the incident one of the prominent workers of American Media – Jack Thompson lashed out against video games, unnecessarily as he said the killer was playing in a Counter-Strike. Sam case caused much debate in the Chinese community Fort Bent. Some people, including whose mother, a student claimed that he did anything wrong, so he was arrested and expelled from school. At the same time, many believe that the decision to expel the student was correct, unnecessarily violent computer games can easily be projected onto reality.
