In West Haverstraw, New York, a father and son were arraigned Tuesday morning on felony charges for assaulting another father and son with a baseball bat during an argument over the ownership of an Xbox video game.
there are crazy people all over the world but seems big % is in US xD also those bails and jail systems support USA's economy BIG time. its like 25-50% world prisoners are located in US.
way to pull statistics out of you ass..
lol for real. go away dude.
"like 25-50% world prisoners are located in US" Where'd you find that rousing statistic? I mean, I'm sure you didn't make that up, of course not, that would be silly. Behold! The Jack Thompson reasoning method in action!
It's a statistic from 2006, and it's 25%. The United States has 5% of the world's population, but 25% of the world's prisoners, which ranks us as 1st for imprisoning our own people. 2nd is China, 3rd is Russia. Blame drug laws, they crowd the prisons more than anything else, by quite a substantial margin. I do get sick of internet people throwing around the blind idea that crime and violence only happen in America. There are stupid, violent people all over the world.
games r that important
of your typical xbox fanboy act first think later be angry threaten everyone . makes u wonder
F*ck those thieves. Same thing happened to a friend of mine. His father had a friend over and brought his kids, when they left his Halo 2 was missing from the disc tray. Their father refused to believe his kids stole it.
srsly... bring ur dad to a fight? dont get me wrong... fight is bad! but c'mon mang~ bring ur dad to fight ur friend? u would think 18/45 years old will act more mature than this... sigh
People, why fight? Anyways,if it was my dad and me, man,there'd need alittle more than a baseball bat lol. Jus lemme get my boxing wraps on... Lmao
You see people beating and killing each other EVERYDAY for this game systems. Some kid stole $10,000 for a wii. Two teenagers beat a kid to death after a botched stealing of a psp. Ps3 shipments get jacked. And now you have famlies batting each other for 360 This goes to show you easily videogames influence people now. And no, it's not the game or the developers fault. It's just the fact that people have no self control Edit- Inyourmom, I MEANT TO SAY " you SEE people" Come on man, use common sense. Even though it was a typo, it was easy to recognize the mistake. sheesh
What do you mean by "you people"?
You are people too correct?
There is no excuse for this, but violence crosses country, console, race and religious boundaries. There are stupid violent people everywhere you go.
It's a human condition and not isolated to "you people".
Ever heard of a typo??
I caught the typo. But yeah, people are f'n crazy these days. The worst was last month when that kid threatened to commit suicide when his mom threw his ps3 in the tub for not doing his homework
people like this make me sick to my stomach....hope the assailant gets the punishment he deserves
I bet it was "Drake of the 99 Dragons"..lol
What the f=== is going on here? These people must be naturally crazy or the cause might be the xbox all together. Every time i hear one of these ridiculous stories of something that should never happen it always has something to do with an xbox, and i know for a fact the system is not really good enough to goto jail over.
Surely you are not suggesting that ANY system is worth going to jail for, are you?
i cant believe people this stupid are allowed to walk on the streets or even live in our neighborhood...what scum!
This stuff is down right terrifying. And the worst part is you see these stories more and more.
This had nothing to do with video games. This was about theft. It just happened to be a video game that was stolen, but watch people jump all over this anyways. If something else was stolen, do you think anyone would care? Wake up, people! Stop focusing words like "Xbox" and "Video Games" and focus on the whole story. (Not necessarily suggesting people here, but the public in general)
I guess Jack Thompson or wathever is his name is rigth!
It usually happen with the Bases Loaded & the Man made Two Outs! Swinging his Grand Slam! Sorry no~puns intended!
That's 1-A Parent, 2- A Son, 3-Strikes Hes Out! "Now hes going to Jail with Buff Guy like this to Examine his Dugout!"
1-800-4MY-XBOX for all your coffin needs.
And video games have nothing to do with it. Quit posting this trash; you're only feeding the fire.
Violence is more comment in USA than most countries...watch Bowling for Columbine...
