Video Game About Bullying Comes Under Fire

A new video game released Tuesday is under fire. Some worry it encourages school violence.
The game is called "Bully" and can be played on Playstation 2. It centers around a high school student who is bullied. The student gets back at those who bully him througout the game by using violence.
The most violent weapons in the game are baseball bats and slingshots. No guns are used.
Fayette County School Safety officials worry that this game will encourage students to use violence when bullied. That is exactly what they are trying to teach students 'not' to do.
Some gamers say school officials and others are over-reacting. They say games should not be blamed for teens' violence.
