Boys Banned From Violent Videogames After Nuking Cat

Two Canadian teens who broke into a home, did $25,000 in damages and then microwaved a cat to death have avoided jail time, but are banned from playing violent videogames. According to the Edmonton Journal they're also on strict probation for the next year complete with 9:00 pm curfews and limited cellphone access. The boys must attend therapy sessions and serve 100 hours of community service as well as pay for the $500 deductible on the homeowners' insurance. They also can't own an animal for two years leaving one of their families in the position of having to give up a dog they bought for the boy's younger siblings just ten weeks ago.

When I was young, I was @ a party and a guy put a cat in a microwave, I`m NOT down w/ that sh!t at all.

I picked up a frying pan off the stove and smashed the guy right in the face w/ it. He lost a good percentage of his teeth and was out cold. I saw him a few years later and he would even look at me, I guarantee he NEVER put a cat in a microwave again.

IMO, he deserved it.

ianp6223513d ago

Thank you for doing that. +Bubbles

LeShin3513d ago

Bubbles to you man, I would've done the same, if not worse!

xionpunk3513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

what the hell I had no idea microwaving cats was so popular. I'm pretty sure these kids are going to be mass murderers when they grow up.

former cat microwaver? (Dahmer just so ya know)

va_bank3513d ago

Then you did the right thing.

Andras843513d ago

Good move!!

I hate people who tortue animals just for the heck of it.

Everyone who ever tortured an animal should die in one of the most painfull deaths!

SpartanGR3513d ago

Yeah you're my hero +Bubbles from me too

lordgodalming3513d ago

As a school teacher I always stress that violence is not an option to solve problems. However, what kind of sick f!*k does this to another living thing? Blow up a potato if you need to get your rocks off. Maybe a frying pan is the only way such an idiot will get the message. Bubbles for sticking up for a helpless animal.

SaiyanFury3513d ago

This is another example of the "rotating door" justice system in Canada. I'm in Manitoba and it's no better here. IMO these two stupids kids who seem to like to torture animals should be stuffed into a microwave themselves. I wouldn't call it torture, I'd call it poetic justice.

nbsmatambo3513d ago

"and then microwaved a cat to death"

wtf is up with these kids?!

AuToFiRE3513d ago

those who torture animals should meet the same fate, you put a cat in the microwave you should be microwaved as your punishment.

and bubbles to you

SolidSnake933513d ago

Congratz, you did the right thing, bubbles for doing that.

Okay is this a true story? Or did you just want ALOT of positive feedback/bubbles? I am sorry for the suspicion, but I know people who do this because they enjoy exploiting people's sensitivity to certain elements (such as animals).

EDIT: Do you have pictures or a video about this incident on your hard drive?

gamersday083513d ago

their owner kids put them in microwaves or ovens.

I saw some youtube vdos of some sickos actually throw live goldfish into fish tanks with piranhas and they actually record the process of the poor goldfish being shredded alive by the piranhas. Worse, they post the videos online just to show off.

Just dont understand why do kids do these things nowadays. Bad parentinghood?

It's all about karma guys.....It'll come back to you.

Patrick3513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

Thats seriously sick and if you will do something like that to a helpless animal, you will do worse to a person.

@Chuck Norris, I think you seriously need therapy and from this point on I hope that everyone that see's you posting on ANY article on N4G disagrees with everything you say just to take your ability away to comment. Your seriously screwed up.

SlyGuy3513d ago

now they will never get pus$y

ChickeyCantor3513d ago

You just didn't say that to get bubbles right xD.
If not good job.

BobDog3513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

How is that funny in the slightest? These kids should be tried as adults for animal abuse, and I think it's a shame they didn't get jail time.

Genesis53513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

Put my cat in a microwave and you better hope you get jail time! Or a least protective custody.

Lucreto3513d ago

@Genesis5 I would not let him get as far as protective custody. He would have to be relocated to another country to escape me.

Cats FTW.

SL1M DADDY3513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

Taste like chicken!

j/k

;-)

In all seriousness thought, anybody that puts a cat in a nuker is just plain sick.

va_bank3513d ago

I hate cats, but that's just fvked up - nothing funny about that.

Sena Kobayashi3513d ago

slim daddy are you chinese?

Chuck Norris3513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

I don't see anyone complaining about lions eating gazelles over in Africa. Koalas are being killed daily in Australia due to over population. Game hunters kill animals for pleasure. Dog fighting is a legitimate sport in some cultures. Animals die all the time; get over it.

Kids will be kids. I've done some really f*cked up things as a teenager and I'm sure a lot of you have done some weird sh*t as well. It's not like you've never squished a bug or run over an animal on the road.

This is not the first time that this incident has occurred. I'm pretty sure the previous generations has mistreated animals and so did the generations before them. Although I agree that these kids should be punished for cruelty, there are more serious crimes happening around the world than just the death of a cat.

EDIT: I am not saying that these type of actions should be considered acceptable in society. All I'm trying to point out is that there are more pressing issues to deal with. If you want to talk injustice, why not start with the thousands of HUMAN lives being lost everyday due to wars? Or the fact that there are millions of people around the world who suffer everyday due to malnutrition with nothing to eat.

Instead of sitting in our high chairs totally content with our lives and agreeing with one another that these kids are the biggest bast*rds for microwaving a cat, why not look at the bigger picture? Our society is in the pits and it's not going to change with the life and death of a cat.

Andras843513d ago

Cats rule!! I love cats. When I see people hurting an animal I could kill them. I feel more for animals than for people...people are so evil is not even funny.

SL1M DADDY3513d ago

Nope, but I like their food! I'm sure though that in all the chinese restaurant I have been to that none of them have ever served cat in place of chicken... Well, I hope not anyway.

sak5003513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

@chuck Try putting ur little kid in microwave and then laugh.

@others
Agreed
No one touches my cat in order of harming it in anyway or they'll end up in microwave themselves.

edit:@chuck's new explanation. THere is over population in some countries so we should resort to exterminating humans as well by torture? Just cuz u seem to have IQ slightly higher than an ape doesnt giv u right to make fun of helpless creatures being used for fighting or using to kill them as entertainment. I hope the matadors get what they deserve on judgement day and they run around naked while the bulls tag them with swords.

mfwahwah3513d ago

"I don't see anyone complaining about lions eating gazelles over in Africa. Koalas are being killed daily in Australia due to over population. Game hunters kill animals for pleasure. Dog fighting is a legitimate sport in some cultures. Animals die all the time; get over it."

So that justifies it? Oh ok. You know, Hitler killed quite the number of Jews. Should we just say "**** happens, get over it?"

Also:

This isn't a safari: people don't microwave cats for survival. This isn't over population: cat to people ratio is fine. This isn't hunting: You get a license for that. This isn't a sport ANYWHERE: it still wouldn't justify it.

Animals get killed, yes. I don't care about the above reasons for it (except dog fighting), but TORTURING animals is something I'm against. Good job looking like a d*****

Chuck Norris3513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

@mfwahwah

So when is killing an animal justifiable in your opinion? Killing an animal for convenient reasons is the same as killing it for no reason at all. A death is a death no matter which way you look at it.

A human's life should never be compared to that of an animal.

@Everyone else

I never said that I favor the killing of animals. I'm trying to point out that these things happen all the time. What makes the life of this cat anymore important than the rest of the other animals being killed daily?

Do you feel guilty for eating meat? Of course not. So, is it justifiable to kill cows for their meat? That is debatable. No matter which way you look at it animals die. It may be for food and what not but they still die and that's the point. Should you only feel guilty for killing cats and not for killing cows or chicken? You're either in it all the way or not. If you really care about animals that much then be a vegetarian.

EDIT: Thanks for the debate. I had fun playing the bad guy. I'm off to sleep.

mfwahwah3513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

Look, you're saying that this type of stuff happens a lot. Well, it doesn't. I'll even get into some detail just to show you.

Hunting: It's a sport, and it's goverment regulated. It's not people killing just to kill, it's a sport (people don't play basketball just to throw a ball around, they do it because it's a sport).

Food: SURVIVAL. You don't need to unnecessarily TORTURE and MICROWAVE a cat to live. People are omnivores, some people just choose not to be. Doesn't mean it's not in us to eat meat. Killing cows for meat is nothing like microwaving a cat because you're robbing a house.

"What makes the life of this cat anymore important than the rest of the other animals being killed daily? "

Who says it's most important? Why bring up EVERY damn issue instead of speaking specifics to THIS story. You're looking at this in such a black and white way: "animals die. Either laugh at this, or mourn for every animal out there." Well, if this story said "Millions of animals tortured every year" or something, then I would be here talking about that. It's irrelevant though, because this discussion is on the unnecessary torture of a cat, aside from the whole robbery / video games thing.

By the way, was NEDM something you laughed at? I'm guessing yes.

Chuck Norris3513d ago

"Hunting: It's a sport, and it's goverment regulated. It's not people killing just to kill, it's a sport (people don't play basketball just to throw a ball around, they do it because it's a sport)."

So if I make a sport about microwaving cats and have it regulated, you would find it acceptable? I know a few people who hunt as a hobby and some do not do it because it's a sport, they do it because they are good at it. The same goes with basketball.

"Food: SURVIVAL. You don't need to unnecessarily TORTURE and MICROWAVE a cat to live.

Should a bum on the street find a cat on the street belonging to someone else and he decides to bring it with him with the sole intention of eating the said cat, it is acceptable to you?

Your arguments are all similar. A good analogy would be about the US goverment. It works so hard to prevent other countries from invading each other and yet it does not hesitate to invade a defenseless country because it needs its resources.

FYI. My statement above that says "Microwave a cat? LOL" is directed at the way our society has reached a new low and not at the cat. It's just that I can smell hypocrisy and I want to prove my point.

BabyStomper50003513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

Has anyone here ever seen a cat being cooked? In Korea they boil them while they're still alive. It's the same as killing a chicken or cow to them. I agree with Chuck Norris' argument of there being things that are WAY more important than a cat getting killed. This kind of thing does happen all the time whether you want to believe it or not. I've heard of quite a few people that have abused/killed cats/animals and someone usually finds out and beats the living sh1t out of them.

Also, this has nothing to do with video games in general. I really don't understand how this stuff gets approved.

Edit: Oh I didn't see that they were banned by the courts.

Wii60Fan3513d ago

Sick in the head if you think microwaving a living animal is funny.

ZombieNinjaPanda3513d ago

Wow you're an ass.

The reason why it's unjustified to kill a cat, and or a dog is because:

They [email protected] trust us!!! These animals trust us humans! They live with us! They're out pets! They rely on us to take care of them, to feed them! And you feel it's alright to microwave a cat?

BabyStomper50003513d ago

Any animal will trust you if you feed it.

sak5003513d ago

@babystomper

I doubt chuck will trust u even if u feed him :D

TheDude2dot03513d ago

Chuck, you are right that there are more important things than a cat dieing, however, I think that you are missing the point.

The point isn't that a cat died. The point is that these kids microwaved a cat for no reason other than to see it die. These aren't 10 year olds who don't have an idea what will happen. This shows signs of mental problems/diseases. I'm glad these kinds of people do stupid stuff that gets them caught, so we don't have to deal with the consequences of them growing older and doing something worse.

SolidSnake933513d ago

Jail time, those kids should be executed.

Tacki3513d ago

To add to what some others have said... I don't believe that the point is only that the teens mercilessly tortured a cat... but also that this cat belonged to their neighbor. Not that I'm saying it would have been better had it been their own. I'm suggesting nothing of the sort. But just imagine having your house broken into, trashed, and something you love killed. Yes, I do think human lives are more important than animals... but many people to love their pets very much. For some they're even like children to them. If you have something precious to you taken away it's a very sad thing.

As for their being more 'important' issues... I'd agree from my perspective. However an issue's 'importance' can be something of a subjective thing and I don't believe that means things like this should just be passed off because much worse things have happened. And really I don't know how you'd feel if something terrible happened to you and everyone just told you, "Well, there are more important things. Get over it." I realize that's slightly different since in this case no one here is involved in this or lost anything... but I've never understood those people who always say there's more important issues so we shouldn't care as much about this one in particular. In that case there's very little you could ever give a second thought because there's almost always something 'worse' or more important. If you go and buy a big mac when you have plenty of food at home... well why didn't you use that money to help the starving children in Africa? Instead you just helped to increase your fat cells. Surely those children are more important?

I'm not saying that you're wrong Chuck. I do agree with you to an extent that their are more important things. However, I have a hard time understanding your reasons for commenting. You yourself don't think it's that important compared to other things, so why waste the time? Why not stick to an article you actually care about? I'm really not trying to 'scold' you here and I apologize if I come across that way. The only problem I have with some of the things you've said is the way you put them across. Instead of stating it as your beliefs it almost comes across as though you're telling other people how they should feel. Like "if you're this and that and you eat this than you shouldn't care about that". Let people decide what issues interest them and what they want to comment on. There are seriously more important things than commenting on N4G afterall... but the beauty of life is that you're free to make choices on how your time is spent and what it is spent on.

As for these boys... I think the penalty wasn't nearly as harsh as it should be. Not just because they killed a cat either... but because they broke into a home and knew each and every little thing they were doing. It wasn't some kind of 'accident' and I really believe they're getting of way too easy. It's like they're just getting no more than a light spanking.

All right I may have gone too far, but they should at least be put in jail.

Wtf, these kids should be banned from playing video games period. When you microwave a helpless cat there's something obviously wrong with you.

When you microwave a helpless cat you should be sentenced to death, those kids should be microwaved to death.

The should nuke the boys' testicles to avoid them reproducing and it'll teach them a lesson.Don't put things in the microwave you're not ready to eat.But WTF they broke into someone else's house and killed their pet and they get no jail time or get punished severely for it?WTH Canada?This is how serial killers begin.Someone needs to kill these kids before they move on to killing humans.

I submitted a source about this story the other day but it got failed (strangely people were reporting mine for being a duplicate of something that was submitted AFTER mine).

My submission for reference: http://n4g.com/NewsCom-1951...

EDIT
For the people disagreeing with me can they please explain why.

EDIT 2
I also link to the Edmonton Journal (which is the original source) so shouldn't mine be more legitimate than using FileFront as a news source?

I wouldn't be so concerned. It's not like this site is known for anything other than being a collection of rabid fanboys. I personally don't want to be known as a huge contributor to this place. :)

lol damn right. There not using most of their brain cells, might as well nuke 'em!

As punishment, have their genitals slammed by a microwave door. 10 times each.
