8 year old kills Grandmother after playing GTA IV

#121TaikutsunaPosted 8/25/2013 7:13:12 AM
"Parents of 8 year old Euthanize invalid 88 year old grandmother they couldn't afford to care for and blame Video games... Stating 'Cha-Ching we be sueing we be sueing'"

See, I can jump to conclusions just as well as the media. Only, I don't stand to gain anything from blaming Video Games.

More people are killed because of Money, Religion or Politics, then will ever be killed by People who have played a Video game. Get serious people.

1. Age restriction on the game, shouldn't have been playing, parents fault.
2. Stupid America and they're lust for shooting things, get rid of your damn guns or make it illegal to own them.

Why did the parents let their 8 year old play a game with a mature rating?
Why was there a gun in reach of an 8 year old?

Gun should have been locked away or put where the child couldn't reach or find it even if they tried.

Why did the parents leave a child in the care of an 88 year old who has a gun around the house? and why do they let him play the game at that age? Fair enough some young children are not affected by violent games but if you let them play the games then its you as the parent/guardians responsibility.

Are you crazy man! There are 8 year old hitmen out there packing massive firepower. I ain't giving up my gun, they may get organized and try to take over.

Besides, guns are the only thing keeping the Canadians from global conquest. You should be thanking Americans that you aren't speaking Canadian today... Ayyyy.

So we can have our crime rates skyrocket like every other country that's banned civilian ownership of guns?

Bans don't work, they never have. They only make things worse.

If you think they do somehow work, explain all the bans on drugs failing miserably WORLD WIDE.

^ Precisely, banning opens up new stalls on the black market.

Clearly it's the fault of video games. There can be no other explanation. It's surely not a combination of bad parenting and the fact that children have easy access to instruments of death.


Wrong.

It's guns, which comes down to bad parenting. Only difference between Switzerland's guns and 'Murica's is that Swiss guns must be kept in a locker for guns in the house.

Can I get an "E"?

Can I get a "S"?

Can I get a "R"?

Can I get a "B"?

What does that spell!?

</morose humor> My sympathies for the family as any death is tragic, regardless of circumstances ... but Rockstar isn't at fault here. The ESRB exists for to prevent situations like this, but isn't mentioned anywhere in the article.
