13-year old kid attempts to rape mother & ends up killing her for taking away Call of Duty
What is the world coming to? ;)
this is insanity, human being has no more morality
What the hell.... Why would you give a kid a gun.... Sigh. Why was CoD brought into this?
What the actual f*ck?
things like this have always happened. Internet spreads news more easily and quickly though. Just look up what happened 200 years ago, its rather shocking.
Nothing. Just another psychopath. They always were a tiny part of the society we live in. Don't advertise this case as a sensation.
I'm pretty sure this has zero to do with COD and 100% a clear case of a sick disturbed bastard who has no ability to control himself. Either way, this is disturbing and sad
mistake number 1 give child gun.
@NukaCola - "100% a clear case of a sick disturbed bastard who has no ability to control himself." It's a 13-year old kid. He might have been born "evil" as you suggest, although that's the easiest and simplest conclusion to jump to. I find it more likely that he either was shaped this way while growing up (the article mentions nothing about his background, personal life or family relations), or that he suffered from an illness (ADD etc) and was not given any treatment.
1. Do not give a kid a gun. 2. Do not let kids play a mature rated games. I bet if I gave my 7yo boy a gun he would friggen shoot me the next time I tell him to clean his room. Kids do not have the kind of understanding a gun requires. I'm not even sure if I feel that sorry for the woman. She gave the boy a gun and let him play mature games for years presumably since the boy wouldn't be THAT hooked to it otherwise. How effing completely STUPID can you be? A 13yo is not old enough to be the one to blame for this. This idiot of a woman got what she asked for and she ruined her entire family's lives in the process. Slow clap. What an effing waste.
IT'S VIOLENT GAMES PEOPLE! Humans have NEVER been violent before the creation of video games! NEVER! /s It's asinine incidents like this that give some opportunistic Ahole politician a way to score political points and take the focus off the real problem. A 13 year old with access to a gun. Let alone an M (17+) Rated game. Gee I wonder how he got that? But to be honest I don't believe the rhetoric that games cause people to act out in any way. We are aggressive by nature and if not games it would be sports, politics, religion, money, health, relationships, etc and so on. Why is it that certain outlets (mostly politicians and some whack head doctors) try to link video games to violence? Oh that's right. I already answered it. Because they want to do the whole, "NOT ME, LOOK OVER THERE. That's the real problem." *SIGH* Sorry but one more point. I get a little sick of hearing people saying what a good boy, no known problems, never acted out, nothing medically wrong. Yet he tried to RAPE his own mother before killing her? Seriously. I am a father of 3, all grown, and even I don't kid myself thinking I know everything about my kids. Humans are animals by nature. We may "think" know what we are truly capable of most of the time, but sometimes we do things we really wish we could take back or do things we didn't really think we were capable of until it happens.
The world isn't coming to anything. YOu think the world is bad now? Ever been drawn and quartered before? Then ask what is the world coming to.
@abzdine I seriously dislike your point of view on this. One psychotic child is given a gun and he shoots his mother. Firstly he wouldn't have done it if he wasn't given a gun. It was a heat of the moment thing where his mental problems all fired up. Secondly the world is improving. 60 years ago people in Germany were using human soap bars. 100 years ago the Ottoman empire was still sentencing people to death by making them sit on a long sharp metal pole till it reached their neck (through their a**) and killed them. In ancient Rome it was entertaining to round up slaves and Christians and feed them to lions every weekend. When did we ever have more morality in the first world then we do now in the 21st century? 1 kid with a mental illness and a gun in his hand just says we have insane parents who actually think their kids would be safer with a weapon that can take lives with just one click.
Miss me with all the gun control crap. This boy tried to rape his own mother. Let me write that again, RAPE HIS OWN MOTHER. He had deep issues that go beyond simply having access to a gun, or simply having a video game.
This just in, the NRA has an announcement: That mother should have shot back with her own gun! The answer is never less guns, or background checks, or sanity checks, the answer is crossfire with the kids! Unbelievable. Gun manufacturers have politicians in the back pocket. Any legislation that would limit the sale of guns, even to crazy people or criminals is voted down by American politicians who are completely bought and paid off by the NRA. Gun manufacturers make money by selling more guns, so they don't want crazy people and criminals to not have guns because that hurts sales. It also means sane people will be scared to walk the streets unarmed, so they'll be fear-mongered into buying more guns, thus more profits for gun manufacturers. Given that every country in the world with 40 gun deaths a year compared 40,000 in the US thinks the US is absolutely bat shit crazy with its archaic insane thinking, it is clear nothing will ever get done so long as the NRA keeps buying politicians.
I find it ironic that people say "don't blame CoD, blame the gun," which is just people targeting another scapegoat. Double standards much? The kid tried to rape her corpse. What part of that sentence makes you think that he wouldn't have been just as likely to grab a knife and stab her twenty times? Use some sense people, and follow your own rules, too.
The fault here lies totally with the parents for giving this little psycho a rifle at the age of 11 for fack's sake. "Noah Crooks’ attorney is not denying that his client killed his mother, but claims the boy suffered what he referred to as a “tumor of rage”. a child psychiatrist will testify Crooks suffers from ‘intermittent explosive disorder’ – a mental illness marked by repeated episodes of impulsive, aggressive or violent behavior."
Giving a child a gun causes less problems than keeping gun safety from them. I grew up with guns like a lot of kids from the south like me. The only kids that shoot themselves accidently with guns are the ones that know nothing about them. Thats why for the last say 200 years my family has always taught our kids about guns and like his father and his father before him i got my first gun at like age 10. It's been a long tradition in states that actually hunt forever. I knew from a early age that guns kill and was taught to respect them. When you grow up on a farm and you have to kill, cows, chickens, and Hogs all the time you know what death is and you learn to fear it. City boys maybe think they are immortal when they are young but us country folks know better. This kid was screwed up in the head from the start and blaming guns isnt going to fix the mental health problem in the U.S at all. I see sick people walking the street everyday, everyone in town knows they are totally nuts but we cant lock them up untill they do something stupid.Its against their civil rights to lock them up before hand against their will. @DragonKnight You're probably from a stupid state like New york that have no gun rights anyway so you have no problem taking away rights you dont have in the first place. I can't stand people who dont own guns, never shot guns, don't know anything about guns, trying to tell me what i can and can't do with my guns. Kids have been going on their first deer hunts at 8 years old forever so why is it a problem now. Because pansy people like you keep making excuses for their bad behavior. This kid was just sick that's it there will always be one a-hole out of 1000 that will do something stupid We cant stop it that's human nature. But im not going to punish the 99 percent of people for the 1 percent of idiots out there. If we did that non of us could ever leave the house.
Why in the actual f*** would anyone give a kid a REAL GUN?! See, that's the REAL problem these days. Terrible parents. You give a kid a gun, you let him play a game whose primary objective is killing an enemy with guns, you obviously place no restrictions and make the child spoiled, and then you wonder why s*** like this happens. I swear, it should be mandatory that every new parent be required to take parenting classes whenever they have a baby and take refresher courses at the necessary stages of development. Either that, or someone invent common sense classes and require that of parents. I mean even if this kid had a mental disorder, which isn't even mentioned as being a possibility, it's still up to the parents to create structure and discipline. Any of his deficiencies are due to them not doing right by their child.
@Gumtrol, Human tallow makes for terrible soap. Nazi soap is just war folklore.
AND ONCE AGAIN IM BLAMING PARENTING !! WHY THE FUCK IS A 13 YR OLD PLAYING 18+ GAMES !! THERES A REASON WHY THERES A HUGE FUCKING STICKER ON THE SIDE READING 18+ !! oh btw notice how its from america lol
gave a child a gun let child play a shooting game for mature audiences. Another case of bad parenting reaching a peak. @awi5951 Are you serious?Like really are you serious? Your saying the only kids that shoot themselves dont know nothing about guns?First off KID SHOULDNT HAVE GUNS PERIOD! I have a friend in the army that probably has 100x more knowledge of guns then you ever will and he still managed to shoot his self in the foot. I cant even comprehend what you typed.Like its impossible for me to put myself in your shoes and say what you said and actually think it makes sense. I agree blaming guns is very stupid.But saying giving kids guns and teaching them about them would be safer because YOU and people YOU KNOW just happen to not have had an accident yet is probably stupider.
@awi5951 Don't be ignorant, a kid having a gun in his possession with ammunition is grade A stupid. I'm all for gun education and for people of all ages to learn how to shoot, but don't be daft. Is it really so wrong for it to be locked up at all times when not supervised? Or does that not jive with your infallible down south wisdom? Like the kid lived in a rural area, not a farm.
Stupid parents who give teenagers a gun. Dont they remember how being a teenager was?
Actually this kind of stuff has been going on since the dawn of time (in low percentages, thankfully). It's only thru all the media we have out now, that we hear about it. If anyone bothers to read about human history, we are living in the most peaceful time ever (relatively speaking) by far.
@awi, you are a very special kind of stupid. Justifying kids with guns! Really?
Please, Gaming101. If you think that the firearm is to blame in this situation, you're incorrect. Brb, I've gotta get ready for my hunting trip tomorrow - me and my buddies are bringing a few rifles and we're going to have a perfectly safe and responsible time. The kid is to blame, and the mother for providing the gun and allowing her child to play an M-rated game at the age of 13/14. GG.
Let just say the kid is totally fucked up/mental problem. Gun don't kill people, but stupidity do!
problem is people don't beat their kids no mo. sorry but its true. those little authority challenging people to be need their ass beat every once in a while so they don't get god syndrome. then they wont shoot you cause they know you'll beat their ass. (works in kid logic) teach them right from wrong we wouldn't have this problem. but politically correct America with its lazy ass kids, want everything for free NOW!, or else they will kill you haha fuckin little bitch needs to be taught... family didn't teach it so look what happened. in all seriousness this politically correct bullshit America is pulling is getting 20yrs old I for one am tired of it. mind your own fukn business and beat your kids when they display absolutely unacceptable behavior and life will cruise. I had my ass beat and because of that I didn't think I could kill people without repercussions. hence kids need to be brought up, they don't come pre-programmed to be awesome people. you give them that and later in life they learn to thank you for it. this kid will grow up in prison all because his mom/dad didn't show him who's boss.. cause that would be abuse... HA! facepalm! edit: likely one of you will pull the mentally unstable card. what do you think would've happened if his mom/dad disciplined him in other ways besides "taking away his COD". he would fear them over god. and love them just as much. guns aren't the problem. and if you want an honest debate start here. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
He is a child, he must be in some weird state of mind... this must be parents fault, like in all cases involving children since they must 100% follow and understand theyre child nature, help him and be responsible for everything he does... if parents cant control a kid then I dont want to sound mean.. this is life.. and in life shit happens, we have to understand that human being is only an animal, and if you dont put work into animal it will stay an animal... you have to learn human being how to be a human being.. and I now it sounds weird or crazy for some.. but you cant argue with reality, shit happens if things get out of control!
Clearly the kid was mental. he tried to rape his own mother. WTF, that's sick who hell gave this kid a gun?
@grimmweisse No your a special type of stupid it's called teaching your kids survival skills. You brats today take for granted that you can just go to the store and get something to eat. Im my day if you didnt know how to shoot you and your family starved. And you see all these natural disasters where the power is out for weeks at a time and you see these idiots panic. You people have gotten too soft. I got my first .22 rifle at age 10 from my grandad and i used it to hunt rabbits for food for the family. I used it to kill water moccasins that tried to bite me while i was fishing. I carried my little rifle where ever i went by myself loaded because it was for my protection and helping to feed the family. Thats just how it was done in my day. And it wasnt all these shooting like in these days. This generation is just stupid thats all. Kids had more guns then than they do know and it wasnt anywhere near this amount of violence. When you lived out in the middle of nowhere where i grew up you better have a gun or you didnt survive. Bears,boars,snakes and crazy folks you run into in the woods. You kids better hope none of your countries collapse because you all will be the first to die of starvation or i hope you enjoy eating grass because thats all you be able to catch. Because someone thought it was a good ideas to baby our kids and not teach the survival skill they need just in case you find yourself lost in the woods or a natural disaster actually hit your area. You brats today! Can you make a fire without a lighter or matches? Can you make snares for small game? Do you even know how to find water? Do you know what plants in the woods you can and can't eat? Can you hit the broad side of a barn when hunting? Do you know how to catch a rabbit with just a bare stick? We use to teach our kids these thing now we just sit them in front of the Tv so they will shut up. And thats whats wrong with the country today. You kids better learn how to live without so much tech because one day it may not be there alot can change over your lifetime and nothing is promised.
Well that escalated quickly.
I saw someone insomnium2 say this "A 13yo is not old enough to be the one to blame for this." Well when I was 13 I was already in High School...he was old enough. Now if he had mental issues that's another story altogether.
Obviously a very unpopular point of view, but I was raised the same way @awi was. I've been shooting guns since age 8 and I know what they can do. By being taught about how dangerous they are, using them on a regular basis, and using proper safety techniques, I realized what a gun was, and what shouldn't be done with it. I get the strong feeling that the people crucifying @awi did not grow up in a similar fashion. It's not about "being stupid," as you people are suggesting. It's about having an understanding of a powerful piece of machinery from a young age so as to avoid incidents like this. Long story short - the more I was taught about guns, the less I ever wanted to shoot anybody with one.
@anubusgold You and awi might not realize this but living in the country isnt the only dangerous place in the world.You had to worry about animals,people in cities had to worry about muggers rapist and kidnappers.Hop off your high horse thinking your some how better because you learned "survial skills" at a young age.We ALL learned survival skills at a young age WE DONT NEED a gun to survive.You NEED TO BE SMART to survive.Why the hell would someone who live in a city need to know all of that stuff?If we entered another dark age we would have enough food to survive on in our life time.By the time we die off and if we are still in dark age our kids will learn all that crap you listed.Its unnecessary to know that stuff now, yea it would be cool to know but chances of me needing to know that crap is slim to none. To everyone else.As someone who grew up in the "wilderness" and had to kill rattle snakes and possums on my front porch, everyone from the country isnt a dumb "redneck" like awi and anubusgold.They think that because they didnt have any incidents with guns that, that means teaching kids about guns is the winning solution.That little thing about everybody being different doesnt apply to them for some reason.
for a call of duty game damn, why are these stories only from america? as a member of the UK this is pretty stupid giving kids guns for their birthdays, in the uk guns are very very very hard to come by and knife crime has gone straight down thanks to the new knife crime control acts. it funny how we made the best guns around 100-200 years ago and now there is nobody is allowed to own one
hope they ban guns in USA one day , where on the earth they allow freedom to buy gun like in USA.
They allow civilians to own guns so that we wouldn't be at the mercy of the government should they become tyrannical. Our forefathers gave us a way out. Unfortunately I don't think they foresaw future generations of americans becoming fat and lazy that tend to look the other way when our country needs us the most.
The amendment on gun ownership was pointed at the British since the US didn't have a standing army at the time. It's horribly outdated today and just stupid. If the US were to ban firearms the homicide rate would drop dramatically. At least successful ones. Hadn't there been firearms in that house OR they had been properly locked away that woman would still be alive for sure.
@nypifisel: Banning law-abiding citizens from legally owning guns would barely put a dent on gun crime, because the vast majority of gun homicides are committed by illegal gun owners. Just look at Chicago, where you have the strictest gun control laws in the country, but paradoxically the highest rates of gun homicides. This should tell you that banning legal guns would only take away the rights and abilities of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves from illegal gun owners. Rather than doing this, we should be focusing on cracking down on ILLEGAL gun ownership instead.
@Statix...agreed. Obviously you are an aware citizen. The world needs more minds like you. @jommy999...learn from history, that's all I can say in regards to that asinine statement. Besides, there are plenty of laws that don't do a damn thing, say for instance the issue of rape. Laws for the most part keep honest people honest. Unfortunately nowadays (in USA) laws are beginning to criminalize everyone prior to any infraction. We need common sense leaders, not commonwealth ideologues.
Taking away guns from law biding citizens is stupid you will just turn them into criminals. The criminals get full auto weapons for 300 dollars off the street it will cost me 17 thousand to get one legally? The funny thing is i never hear of the gang bangers going to jail for their illegal ak's. It seems only the law bidding citizens get all the governments attention.
Exactly. But you should know that leaders are important in that issue because if they are idiots then chaos will spread. For example we have a little different issue then you but it have the same meaning. In my country the only ones that kill are the police(mercenaries). Rulers here give their children and men weapons so we hear that they shoot some buildings or anyone they hate wether in political or religion or disagreement every while. What i'm saying controlling who get the guns is important. I don't think giving the citizens guns is a good idea. It's not really for protecting. It's just an excuse. People shouldn't kill each other. My country is a prove of how people respect each other. We don't see this kind of things here. We raised that way and religion itself is the law. We really don't care about the law the dictators here put. So i advice you to have some kind of law that all people agree on and if anyone go against it means it effect people in a bad way which means apply that kind of law on him. It's as simple as that. But as we know the law isn't for people right now.
Look at all the anti-gun zealots coming out in ignorant force. If it wasn't a gun, it would have been a knife or shive. Probably more logical to have better parenting and common sense, than to blame a game or a gun, or even a pencil used as a poker. You know those plastic knives are serious. Outlaw them since they were used to take over planes for 911.
Pry 'em from my hands, jommy999. You'll not get mine. I'm a law-abiding citizen with a clean record, and I own tons of firearms. Just because a few putzes can't control themselves doesn't mean we should all be punished for it. Where else but the USA, indeed!
Guys, don't get me wrong. I would love to get a gun. It's just not a good idea to let all people have them so i can sacrifice my self need so others don't use it in a bad way. Collecting guns doesn't worth someone killed. Guns should be used for defending the country and i respect that but not assault people or other countries like what is happening right now.. I'm not saying guns only the way to kill. It's just one of the easy tools to commit it. So removing them will lower the rate of these crimes and to prove my talk look at my country Bahrain. It's rare when these things happen.
The media is about to eat this up, too. Get ready for more of the blame game.
Hopefully they won't gloss over the fact that giving a 13 old easy access to firearms is never a good idea. Kids do stupid things, they always have and they always will. Making it easy for these moments of stupidity to become lethal is a whole other level of stupidity.
jeezus christ!!! i blame most of this problem on the government!!! cuz of the government, we can't really do much to punish a child. (lack of spankings) control/lack of respect/ and discipline. its just another way of the government/society to blame it all on the parents, and the media only helps the government add to the fire! U.S. trys to control EVERYTHING!!! and its slowly turning it in to another 3rd world country. and if the child is just crazy, the media will say other wise...."violent in games needs to stop"
You don't need to physically harm a child to teach the right from wrong..
@deadspace I disagree, It puts you in line and sets you straight. but in this kids case he has a condition, the people at fault are the parents : 1.buying Cod for 13year old. 2.not taking the kids condition serious 3.buying the kid a gun..(are you freaking serious) 4.ignoring red flags. If the media and people are gonna keep blaming video games and not accept the real truth. then death and tragedy are the only outcome of such ignorance.
You bought an 11 year old a gun, then gave him free reign to play COD, WHICH MIMICS GUNS.....fail. I'm sorry, I definitely feel for the family, but this was asked for.... there is an age limit on stuff like this for a reason. Why wasnt the gun locked up? I was a different person when i was a teenager. Filled with rage and a complete misunderstanding for the world. The more i live my life, the more i umderstand and care about whats important. How can you risk your life and the lives of others around you by placing your faith in an 11 year olds PRIMITAVE, UNDEVELOPED mind? I wouldnt give any 11 year old a COD game yet alone a freakin .22 Im sure you guys saw the latest campaign where Menendez slits everyones throats. Hell, the OPENING SCENE alone is enough to make any parent say no
Whether or not you agree with the age he was playing the game at, the fact is that kids all over are playing call of duty and other violent games (I saw a 5 year old with a MW3 cap on). To assert that CoD did this would be silly, although what responsible parent buys an 11 y.o. a gun and ammo? A very disturbing story.
It comes down to parenting. #1 Don't give a 13 year old a freaking gun. #2 CoD is rated 'M' for Mature, via 18 years or older to buy it, which would imply to be 18 to play it (granted, it is based on your maturity level, but just to steam line this). I feel bad, but huge mistakes were made here.
Its so funny reading city folks comments so its the parents fault and the guns fault the kid has serious mental issues lets not even look at the rape attempt yeah the kid was all there... Ive been shooting guns pretty much my whole life from when i was about 4 and had full access by the time i was 8 and so did just about everyone i know by the time i was this kids age i was skipping school with my buds to go hunting with no adults in sight.. Its good to introduce kids to guns at a young age u should prolly keep a lock on the gun if ur kid has one but thats on the parents. if the gun wasnt there be would of just usex a knife or something then everyone will be OMG who has knives around a 11 year old
Oh great now all gamers are the worst people on face of this earth Just what the people who hate gaming needs WTH a kid doing playing COD(I know kids play it but t should be on the parents to make sure their kids don't play games that are meant to be for adults)
@kparks there are laws on these things for a reason. Same sort of reason why its illegal for an 11 yr old to drive a car. The mind has not matured entirely to warrant that sort of responsibility. Just because your parents allowed you to have a gun at an early age doesnt mean its right. There are MILLIONS of things to do at 11 guns should NOT be one of them. Go play a freakin nintendo and leave the real games to the adults. Not like we want any kids on COD anyway. I just dont get the parents giving the freedom to the kid....have a lil patience, everyone grows up one day, give him the gun then and let him play games a 13 yr old deserves to play at that age.
Why does a 13 year old kid have a .22????
I wanted pokemon games at 13. Not a freakin gun. What on earth was the mother thinking getting him a gun? Horribly sad story, but huge mistakes like that will definitely come with consequences. Now the mother is dead and the boy has lost his chance at life. Sad. I can't seem to get over the rape attempt. So it's not just about the gun he got for his birthday or COD. This kid obviously had serious mental issues. Something tragic was probably sure to happen involving this kid.
Maybe he lives in the south where there are lots of open spaces to shoot your gun and hunt just like when i was a kid. It's tradition down here and all you city folks just need to shut your damn mouths. Just because you can't shoot your guns when you want too doesnt mean your going to ruin it for the rest of us. Also city folks i have a carry permit i can walk around all day im my state with my gun on My hip and not a damn things the cops or you can do about it. It's called states rights look it up.
Because some children have responsibility and discipline and aren't mentally ill and are taught safety and respect. Lots of children have guns so if guns were the problem you would hear a lot more stories like this. Just because you don't think its appropriate for a child to have a gun doesn't mean that there aren't thousands of kids with rifles. Not too many of them shoot their mom... even less try to rape their mom afterwords. THIS kid should not have had access to a gun (obviously) but he did and this happened. Cause and effect it is over now lets move on.
It's America, having a gun at the age of 8 is seen as normal in allot of states. America is cool but fuck them and their right to bear arms, the fact they didn't pass the bill to have background checks for people buying their first gun, seriously why wouldn't you want background checks? I think if someone has murdered someone in the past i don't think they should legally be allowed to obtain a gun.
@ abzdine "this is insanity, human being has no more morality" That is OLD NEWS and... Godd/Bad people <--- see the difference? ----------------------------- ----------------------- "Halbach said that he slapped handcuffs on Noah's wrists and placed him in the patrol car. He added that the teenage suspect was not crying and did not appear emotional. mmm... "Crooks suffers from intermittent explosive disorder - a mental illness by repeated episodes of impulsive aggressive or violent behavior." mmm... Let me guess NOW i lose my rights because of this and lets destroy the second amendment? Call of Duty? Gun? Mental Illness? Watch and see how the Gun grabbers use this soon as an excuse to gun banning.
Over a video game....
It's not even remotely to do with the video game. The kid was messed up and shouldn't have had access to a gun in the first place. It's just the media's hate war against video games that lead to the title of the article being named like that.
anyone has his xbl gamer tag? this is what cod and achievements has done to the world sucking kids in with addiction. i had a friend who always wanted to play video games back then on snes and stuff now with all this added stuff its even more addicting and bad. kids need to have games that open there minds not shuts them like cod mp. need more games like beyond 2 souls, journey etc. xbox has none of this.
You're not in too deep. /Sarcasm Someone is dead and in your small mind it's likely the platforms fault. Stay classy.
