I'm a journalist and, of course, I believe in free speech. However, certain lines are drawn all the time. For example, I don't know of a video game or telephone app that teaches players how to abuse children.
However, there's now what I believe to be a comparable app through which participants can learn to "train" dogs to fight one another. The goal is for the winner to rip the other dog to shreds. The tagline on the "game," called "KG Dogfighting," is "Raise your dog to be the best."
Kage Games first released a similar dogfighting app in April. I was among the first who blogged about it and word spread quickly through social media. Soon, national animal welfare organizations spoke out and local police superintendents and public officials expressed their horror.
Radio talk show hosts discussed the topic, asking experts, such as child psychiatrists, to comment. Even NFL star Michael Vick — the most celebrated convicted dogfighter — weighed in.
