Modernized KKK = Jack Thompson?

As I was talking to a friend today at lunch over the events that happened at Virginia Tech, the topic came up to Jack Thompson. More commonly known as the public enemy of game developers. There is even a wikipedia article on him.
When the event was first reported, Fox News had an interview with him about the event. Fox News dubbed him the "school shootings expert", WTF!. Anyway, here is the video. Also, the interviewer called him a "specialist". COME ON!
In truth, I expected Jack Thompson to make an appearance at some point, but boy was I surprised by the timing. It would seem that he would go to any extend to associate violent games as the cause for the event. How in the world does he associate the event with video games being the cause before the perpetrator is identified?
