feel sorry for the baby but...what the heck? 6 Hrs is too much??? I play way more than that and i'm find and dandy. I would have smack the Assistant DA for his dumb remarks.
You play videogames for more than six hours a day?! Don't you have any work to do?
all I can say is you need to be disposed of. any adult that cant put down his controller to deal with an infant without loosing it should know to get help. Anyone adult who injures a baby to the point of death deserves the same. Having been through the baby trip a few times know I can say its no cake walk but thats what family and friends are for. If you really lack the ability to control your anger no way should you have a kid in your care. They cry they whine they drive you nuts from lack of sleep and then theirs the collicy ones. But listen if your a parent reading this dont be scared to ask for help even if you have no family or friends social services can and will help. And no you dont have to give up your kid just trust me its better to get help than have this happen. And for the love of pete dont expect an infant to know what to touch and not to touch keeping the bad stuff away from them is your job. My heart and prayers for that poor child's soul and those left behind in the void.
knowing DAMN well what the other prisoners are going to do to his AS$ once he gets in there for killing a kid........its going to be poetic BOOTY justice for this sad excuse of a man..... ..... ..... ."The JOEY has Spoken"
Yep, Open wide. What What in the butt. http://youtube.com/watch?v=...
(Although I usually do agree with ya joey)Although this guy is going to get his regardless of what I think... I don't know this guy i've never met him and I surely have not walked a day in his shoes. So I find it un-fair to say I hope he dies, sure he did something terrible and sure he deserves a long sentence but i think just because he didn't put into thought the value of life before he took it doesn't mean it is ok for us skip over that thought and wish death or worse rape on this dude if anything the only thing i wish on this guy is for him to feel a immense amount of guilt for what he has done and to really re-evaluate his life and maybe even change.
(edit)I don't mind the disagree but feel free to discuss :)
Also I can't help it If i feel for this guy I have a close friend in prison whom I know has a long back story leading up to what he did(although he didn't kill someone he sure tried and thank God it didn't happen) So I to try and think beyond just what im told in these articles because a lot of times these people have had a pretty tragic past
........hmmmmmm, i gave you an Agree and you do make a very valid point in that there are no true words than "innocent until proven guilty" or "Judge not lest ye be judged" but i guess I was more brought up on the premise of an eye for an eye, and especially when it involves an innocent child there are no excuses that this man can come up for what he did .... ..... .. ."The JOEY has Spoken"
It takes a lot to re-evaluate a situation so insane as this and that is why I don't expect a lot of people to agree with me on it.
But I gotta toss you some bubbles on this one Joey and I can totally see this from your point of view as well.
Just another phuck head going to prison and wasting more tax dollars. Kill them all I say. Problem solved.
If you disagree with my point that this story is sad, I would sure like to hear your reasoning!
This guy had way more issues than being addicted to a game what ever punishment he gets wont be enough.
this is upsetting and i hope he rots in prison forever
Im not a parent but agree.
damn 6 hours, i play maybe that much a week, i do have a life, but any way any crazy people kill people not video games
that guy is just your halo and world of warcraft fan why are people surprised he killed someone, yall all insane like that.
People get obsessed with lots of things. He killed his daughter because he couldn't control his anger.
I tell you Zhuk tell your dad to lay off the XboX, although it might do something good for society......
This is just sad man, damn, i cant think what i'd do if something happens to my son, it really bothers me that people can do this kind of things to children, i just wanna know WTF goes through their minds, and then after cut a hole on the head and scramble the brain with a butter knife, then cut them up in pieces, put some salt and pepper, and feed them to the pigs. f$%^#@$.
Man and take full responsability for your action. is people like u that give good gamers a bad name. I am a old school gamer from the 70's and I play 5 to 7 hrs on weekdays and up to 10 on weekend and I am not a child killer...........ur guilty
Nothing is ever your fault. It's games, or music, or society, or the way your parents treated you, or anything really... Just as long as it's not YOUR fault right? /sarcasm
r.i.p baby gurl......damn.this mothaucka waz on 1 fasho....didnt he know that microsoft gave us 3 more years for issues ...:( ...
ur.hope u get rrod (rape right on death row) child killer
This Story Is Really F'ed Up and That Guy Should Be Locke 4Ever 4real. PS:What Mesh1 Said is True Tho,A Few Weeks ago i heard about that Man Shooting His Son Over a 360 Console and Aint Nobody Posted no picture of him.....
No, it's the fault of those blasted games!!! That's the real problem...
I feel bad for the baby. That shouldn't have happened at all. That guy shouldn't have been around kids if he can't deal with a little pressure.
On another note... Cases like these make Games, and Gamers look bad altogether!
Why is it when someone does something stupid, they have to blame it on Games. Are they that weak minded, that they don't know how to handle different situations?
um no....Idiot parent that should have never had kids is what needs to be blamed I play on average 6-10 hours a day of games inbetween job, and other things and have never had a problem.
ginkcuf piece of sheeit and i dont know what he got but i hope it was the death penalty. NO XBOX IN PRISON BUDDY!!!! and his obsession means nothing other than he probably was one of the yellers on xbox live but a lunatic like him would do the sheeit over something else if it wasnt over the xbox. the realness!
