Halo 3 rules!!
"Sorry you are too stupid to play this and distinguish between real life and reality. Please read a book and try again later"
maybe being forced to play, locked in a room for days on end would make me go crazy, but still wouldnt be the games fault...
He`s probably stupid enough to believe there`s an after-life.
That`s what I got out of this.
I bet he felt stupid when found out life has no respawns...
man im a nerd...
I LIKE CAPS LOCK TOO!
I think this pretty much sums it up though.
We`re not allowed, we`re ordered to. And there`s a strong movement to get all the guns out of the houses and into an armory. That`s mainly beacause we have one of the world`s highest suicide rates and many of those are commited with one of those guns.
So I still think having guns around is a risk and not having them would save lives. And I don`t believe a game could influence someone that much, they must have had other, more serious problems in that family...
What, like in Switzerland, douuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuche?
This is what happens when every family is legally allowed to own a gun.
Au contraire, he set it up fully.Not only was it premeditated, but afterward he had the foresight to try and make it look like a drating murder suicide. The kid knew what he was doing, throw the book at the sonofabitch.
Stop blaming games, take action for your dratups.Nation`s turned into a melting pot of pussies & retards.
i hate this
EXACTLY. Thank you.
But ya this is horrible, people like these give video games a bad rep.
I call it the PK (preacher`s kid) effect. We grow up in not only a very black and white world, but also a very sheltered one. After a while you get sick of all your sins being forgiven and start rebelling and all that Jesus loves you stuff. Still no reason to kill your parents though, specially not over a lousy video game.
That`s just from my experience as a preacher`s daughter and from having known other kids like me.
The only way this could have happened is if they would have left the video games educate their son since birth.
Another explination, a more logical one, is that the guy was a psycho and he just use video games reference to protect himself.
I sure hope it was not a plot just to make video games look bad.
Father "Honey, I got a good news and a bad news. Good news; we got a plan to force game makers to stop creating violent video games."
Mother "What`s the bad news?"
Father "We need you dead. We`re going to frame video game violence for your murder by the hands of our son. That`s going to teach them."
Its so true, video games warp the reality of young minds, i played Final fantasy for a few hours yesterday, today i got into i fight, I thought i was playing final fantasy! so i waited my turn before i attacked him.... it got my ass kicked.
Also, apparently from what I heard they had taken away his copy of Halo 3 and hidden the disk in the safest place they could think of: the locked safe where the father kept his 9mm.
when I spent the night in jail for driving without a license (yes lame reason to spend a night in jail), half of the people in there were white people with possession charges. a handful of them were college kids. its not that the courts are more lenient to whites than blacks, its the statistic that blacks are typically more involved than whites...
the judge couldn`t NOT decide, its not his place to. he will be put through a jury trial in which THEY will decide. his parents are ridiculous, well his dad anyways. If my kid did that, there would be no forgiveness....you teach them life is precious and if they can`t appreciate it, you disown them, or at least not forgive them like the next day...
We just get an older person or our parents to rent/purchase it.
^^ This :)I`ve played violent games since I was like 8, and I`m not in jail yet..
-high fives everyone-
but, this is a very tragic event otherwise
Oh and I believe child welfare should only punish those parent who really are douche bags, I`m just saying that the Gov`t has put too many restrictions on parents now, that is all. Flame away.
Its always like that for every story.
When are we going to stop blaming other people for our own mistakes? That kid knew exactly what he was doing at all times. I think there is more to this story we don`t know. Like maybe he had some crappy parents who didn`t know what real good sense and discipline when it comes to parenting is.
poo like this makes me sick.
...Guess people interpret things differently...o_o
The criminal justice system in the United States is unfair. African-Americans are 10 times more likely to be imprisoned for drug offenses than white people in the United States. In addition, the institute noted that federal mandatory minimum sentencing rules hit blacks harder, with the same jail term being given out for possessing five grams of crack (which is disproportionately used by blacks) as 500 grams of cocaine (disproportionately used by whites).
Uh, please give us an example.
but seriously, he does need help cos hes messed up
Meh, I say there needs to be a larger emphasis on studying. The US isn`t like 40th in developed countries for nothing. Yes, I know, irrelevant.
I think this kid`s lawyers should be pretty ashamed of themselves, although maybe he had gone a bit loopy from it, temporary insanity or whatever - maybe.
What are you talking about? his dad is a minister! He actually forgave him! If you`re lost, youtube`s the other way. Now get out of here.
Physical drugs are different than addictive activities. poo like gambling and video games are addictive because they are fun and the brain likes fun. Drugs Physically re-arrange your brain so that you have to have that drug again.
Generally, an intelligent person who has been taught to understand reason, isn`t gonna have a problem with gambling or video games.
The kid a an ignorant piece of poo and his parents made him that way. End of story.
Complete bullpoo. The kid is 17 years old. I`m sure he has seen a movie where someone gets shot and dies. And it`s stupid of the father to forgive him and try and bring him home like nothing ever happened. How is the kid gonna learn?
