Is reason Doomed?

Two weeks ago I both blogged and wrote an article concerning the dubious claims made about the role of a video game in a recent teenage murder. For further info I linked to several BBC webpages. While the Beeb did not say 'ban these evil games', it did promote endless speculation on Radio 5 Live about whether the game Manhunt was partly to blame for the horrific attack.

Now, buried in an article about the impending launch of Doom 3, it is noted the "Detectives investigating the murder rejected any link with the game, saying the motive was robbery."

Where were these detectives a fortnight ago?
(Usually I would end with the rhetorical question 'And where can I get a copy of Doom 3', but the answer is here.)
