In Jamestown, Colorado, two teens have been charged with killing a 7-year-old girl by beating her with imitations of moves from the Mortal Kombat video games, prosecutors said Wednesday.
16 and a 17 year old broke a little 7 year old girls wrist and caused enough head trauma to kill her... man i want to kill them myself babysitting the kid 2 jesus how can they be so f'd up .
Teens are the most immature in their teenage years...how horrible. The poor little girl did not diserve that! Those teens should be punished and should be kept from video games for atleast 15 years. I'll be damned if video games were to get banned especially since I am excited for DMC4 because of some idiots.
"man i want to kill them myself babysitting the kid 2 jesus how can they be so f'd up?"
I can tell you how. They were drunk. I hope nobody blames videogames for this crazy story. Blame alcohol. The kid said himself he was drunk. If it wasn't Mortal Kombat moves they were doing it could have been something from a movie. They're dumb drunks.
I think you missed the part of them potentionally getting 48 years in prison, so 15 years from video games is the least of there worries. They are going to get more than there fair share of beating in prison, and when/if they get out, they are going to resort to criminal acts cause they've spent there whole life there, so why not just shot them now, and save us tax payers some money.
Was it the reporter's words? Something's fishy here.
"Told them to stop wrestling" is the only quote I see.
As opposed to teens in their non-teenage years?
And to add to this...
They weren't 18. So, even if the kids were quoted as saying, "We were imitating moves from Mortal Kombat when we were beating her up so I figured I would 'FINISH HER'"
It doesn't matter because to the best of my knowledge, all of the MK games now have an "M" rating. So these kids should've never played it. That should clear video games of any blame.
found a picture of them both
link to the video: http://www.thedenverchannel...
the dude said he was too drunk to realize how hard he was hitting her, then he brought her to a bathtub and put a egg in her mouth to see she was not messing with him. that's so fcuking bullsh1t. i mean seriously, i've drank when i was 13 years old okay? i know what it's like to be drunk as hell, i had full self control of myself and i knew what i was doing a lot of the times, and when i was 13 i was a small tiny little boy. he's trying to use alcohol to get away with his crimes, that's just full BS, i think he and that s1ut should get the death penalty.
I BET it was never tied to mortal kombat, I BET HE KILLED HER FOR REVENGE BECAUSE THAT LITTLE 7 YEAR OLD DROPPED THE N BOMB ON HIM 'CUZ SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT MEAN, I BET HE JUST USED MORTAL KOMBAT TO TRY TO GET AWAY WITH HIS CRIMES BY BLAMING VIDEO GAMES.
cut they head of like Saudi do with the killers
RE your comment
I'll be damned if video games were to get banned especially since I am excited for DMC4 because of some idiots.
YOU ARE JUST AS BAD AS THEM A SEVEN YR OLD IS KILLED AND YOU MAKE
A STUPID COMMENT LIKE THAT HOPE YOU GET BANNED FROM HERE YOU D!CK HEAD.
Lay off the stupid they better not condem our preciouse games crap This isnt about you its about a little girl who will never get to grow up. The pain and emptiness her poor motherhas to livewith for the rest of her life. And the two ass holes who did it... Lets hope they both get teh full 48/years and sodomized regularly in jail....
Has a father and one who's lost a daughter I cant stand listening to you kids whine about your preciouses games. Show a little class and forget about the stupid games.
Sometimes I wish people like you got body-slammed from the age of 7, that would save us the trouble of beating the living crap out of you later...
I'm normally against the death penalty but this is ridiculous... If you can't kill them then at least try them as adults and give them LWOP. I don't give a damn how old they are, there is no way your not going to know that you are using lethal force, let alone on a child.
whens the new mortal kombat coming out ?
Children with violent tendencies choose to play violent video games.
Violent video games do not make non-violent children violent.
The violence is in the person first, then they play the video game because of it. Not the other way around.
Also, in before anyone stupidly says "Fatality".
well said man.
couldnt agree more. i love violent games. played Mortal Combat when i was very young, but if you ask anyone who knows me they will tell you that i am the most peacefull person ever. well maybe not ask my brothers hihi. but well. =D
Agree, if I should choose to kill myself one day by jumping of a building because I saw it in a movie/game. I would not be killing myself because of the movie/game but just choosing a method known to me because I saw it somewhere.
If videogames really did make people killers we would have ALOT more of these things happening.
Great comment my friend. Sad news.
wow.....its amazing how horrible and stupid can be sometimes
Two kids beating on a poor little child...both of those kids should be locked away for at least 15-20 years and have serious psychological evaluations.
Also, their parents should be taken into custody and questioned seriously regarding their actions and their pasts.
This is horribly disturbing.
In the future, YOU have two daughters; one a 17-year old and the second a 7-year old.
Your 17-year old daughter is chored with babysitting her younger sister, after school, while your wife and you work.
Your 17-year old daughter invites her boyfriend over knowing that YOU and your WIFE will not be home from work for quite sometime.
Your daughter's boyfriend is a thug-punk and your daughter is angry that she is tasked with watching her baby sister when she would rather be getting it on with her thug-punk boyfriend.
Thug-punk is hard and nasty; he's mad because YOUR daughter isn't takin' care of his bizniss.
YOUR 7-year old becomes the target of TWO horny, angry punks.
Minutes later she is dead.
Fifteen years? Remember now, this is YOUR daughter we're talking about! Do YOU still feel the same way? Would YOU feel the same way after YOU bury your 7-year old daughter? Who will you give HER Christmas presents to?
Don't always be so eager to placing blame on a "bad childhood." I've seen great people grow from the worst of conditions as well as total inhuman jerks come from the best of conditions.
One thing that is seldom taught in schools is that fact that certain people are just bad, BAD! regardless of how they were raised or the conditions of their childhood.
The two thugs----evil thugs---that murdered a 7-year old girl, deserve the maximum penalty the law allows---and more.
So some people are born evil? That's the most stupid thing I've ever heard. Read a book, and stay in america, where there are a lot of people like you and a lot of fkd up teens apparently, you seem to go well together.
They seldom teach that stuff in school for a reason, it belongs in the minds of the ignorant who are too limited in their intelectual capabilities to actually understand how a human beings mind functions.
This is sad news indeed, horrible horrible stuff. You seriously need to do something about your society seeing as it is obviously going downhill and dragging others with you. But oh well, how much can you ask of a nation that voted a semi-retard twice? Nada...
Remove bubbles now, bye!
Sosca, you live in a fantasy-filled bubble if you truly do not believe some people are born predispossed toward evil, bad or wrong-doing.
Obviously YOUR education has never taught you about sociopaths. I'll wager that you believe my use of the word 'evil' is taken from a religeous context. It is not. Evil is an appropriate word for anyone who takes human life without remorse.
I speak from experience and years of learning---unbiased, researched learning and years of heart-breaking experience: [ http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... ]
Your deraugatory and bigotted remarks show that we do not share the same level of learning and background. Try using YOUR OWN MIND instead of repeating generic, apologistic talking points.
It IS unfortunate, be some people truly, simply, are born BAD. Wake up and use your brain for analytic thought, not populist tripe.
It's easy to hate and even easier to believe falacy. Truth is not always easy or forgiving. Truth offers no excuses to hide behind.
It's pretty pathetic when people like yourself have to result to America-bashing any chance that arises. You act as if America is the center of the world's violence. Europe has a pretty deep history of violence, too, my friend - a lot deeper than America will ever have - so don't act like violence, aggression, retarded leadership and eff'd up people are limited to America. You're only making Europe look bad by acting the way you do towards people you've never even met, from a country I'm willing to bet you've never even stepped foot in. Only lambs generalize a whole country the way you do.
i just cant understand ,this kids werent 10 or smaller, they are almost adults. at least in Europe. i just think it is so sad.... something went really wrong in theire childhood, and its not Mortal Kombat, of that im sure.
Its Jack Thompson coming!! *closes eyes and hides*
There are plenty of PEOPLE to blame here, not games.
and possibly the witness for not interceding.
if you can't seperate video games from reality at age 17 or 16 you dnt deserve to walk free in society
but for me parents have no time to educate and spend with the kids, kids became agressive, i know some kids very agressives because parents have no time for them. But it´s no excuse, i love violent games but i´m not violent. People like this don´t deserv to live. An accidents happens but beaten someone just like that no way. We still wait for a peacefull world. Could we some day get that?
when the hell has there been a mk game its been years... poor child. stupid kids
If not then ship them somewhere that does.
I wonder kinda moves they were imitating.
Regardless those scumbags need to be brutally raped in prison before they're hanged. Killing a little girl in that way...my god.
Not trying to be funny here, but were they just kicking and punching...or did they reach in and pull the girls skull and spine out.
What happened was horrible, but I really think this is just another case of blaming games because its the in thing to do.
I am wondering where they got the idea they were imidating Mortal Kombat. Was it something one of the children said in a statement? Or was it something a police officer said "it sounded like they were imitating a video game, you know like Mortal Kombat"?
The assault sounds more like something from the WWF than MK.
that this isn't the first violent incident they have been in? My point being that these kids probably displayed violent tendencies in the past and it is up to the people who notice and are responsible for them (their parents) to keep them away from anything which can exacerbate these tendencies, like games.
Only people that are already disturbed get affected by games.
See. this the reason why they wont lower the age for drinking. cause of dumb jerks like this. And they need stop blaming video games. Friggin stupid, why would literally hit a little child hard. Drunk or not.
"A witness reportedly told police that Roberts said that the girl told them to stop wrestling"
Imitating WWE Wrestling more like and also no mention of the primary cause which seems to be alcohol (which if they hadnt been drinking it this would not of happened. "“I don’t know; I was drunk.”
Typical sloppy reporting.
I'm going to have to agree with you on this one, if this were like the early 90s then that would be more believable. But I'm thinking they were doing wrestling moves too, watch the games get blamed though and not the drunken teenagers.
"When the teens hit, kicked, and body-slammed her with moves imitating Mortal Kombat, the girl lost consciousness and stopped breathing" please sum 1 tell me what the f*ck does this have to do with mortal kombat? body slamming? please if anything they were imitating wrestling they just chose a more violent game to center the situation around to stir more controversey
Some people have hurt others by seeing a movie
Some people have hurt others by reading a book
Some people have hurt others by seeing others do the same
Some people have hurt others because guns are legal in the USA
Some people have hurt others because their parents thought them that
Some people hurt others because they have the power to (yup, even Poetin and Bush give orders that weren't supposed to be given for wars, kills or whatever in other countries)
If a person wants to hurt someone else, it can be because of anything they pick up. It's the problem in the brain of the person that is hurting the other. Not the inspiration they got from something. If it's not a game, it'll be a movie or a book
I agree, but I think people just need to stop blaming media for violent acts altogether.
You know what the biggest influence for this kind of act is? It's fellow human beings. All human beings, in their own way are f*cked up, no matter what. This kind of thing will continue to happen as long as there is more than one human being alive in the world.
With that said, this is an evil, sickening and purely vile act. I just believe that we need to stop blaming videogames, movies, etc. and start blaming ourselves.
They have no compassion for human life, and I have no compassion for anyone like that. Teens or not, these animals will not be growing up to be normal upstanding citizens. It's why we need to have and utilize the death penalty because I don't want my tax dollars paying for their education, meals, and health care while they rot in prison.
Damn....... and this will be the reason games are always to be limited because of kids like this....god forgive......
this is tragic thing that happend and u would expect better from 16,17 year olds but this is ridiclous."two teens have been charged with killing a 7-year-old girl by beating her with imitations of moves from the Mortal Kombat video games, prosecutors said" obviously they havent seen nor played a MK game because most of the moves are UNREALISTIC besides punching and kicking how the f*ck r they supposed to immitate the moves from MK? this is sad i agree but i think its another stupid attempt to make video games look bad enough already
Completely true. MK could have looked rather realistic back in 1993 but now, not only MK games no longer realistic, they have put more focus on unrealistic aspects, the things that are mentioned in that article have nothing to do with MK.
It's really sad how 2 idiots kill a poor girl by beating her but hasn't there been kills and deaths by beating before? As for MK, they can't possibly perform Subzero's ice attack or something. If they were imitating MK, they were using simplest things like punches and so, all other fighters have them.
We had the same tragedy, as I said below, and those kids admitted that they had previously played MK and inspired from it
EDIT: I do realize that violent video games do not make non-violent children violent. And it's just to seek a scape goat, but the fact is, at least what happened over here, that those kids admitted that they tried to imitate moves from MK, dunno which ones thou
What do you mean MK inspired them? If anything, other fighting games and Wrestling games are the realistic ones. How can one immitate a move from MK? Mortal Kombat is all about magic and unrealistic fighting. Fireball and ice shards...
The only MK moves that can be copied are the simplest things like punches and all fighters have them.
I'm more than sorry to hear about your story as well as the one here but the thing is that video gamers are used here by parents and most people so they can avoid real responsiblity and instead of looking for real cause of tragedy, blame it on some game and call it a day.
I don't get it, the guy clearly says: "When the witness asked why they didn’t stop, he responded, “I don’t know; I was drunk.”"
Yeah, DRUNK, he didn't say "I don’t know; I was hypnotized by Mortal Kombat."
One "get over here" too many
they better remember all those MK moves they r gonna need it for jail
You should know, Tyler Durden
man... whatta hell games not stupid they are a'll maded by humans. ANd that two sit the jail in forever thats the my word its hard to tell but its true word!
regarding blaming video games on violent acts. Its is not usually used as a case for the prosecution, but rather a case for the defence. Unfortunately these unscrupulous bastards will do anything to get their clients off, and the media will lap it up graciously.
Generally you're correct.
But you can't rule out the Jack Thompsons, Joe Leibermans, and Hillary Clintons of the world.
a couple of f'up kids right there... btw, we had the same thing in our country, some couple of 14yr olds also tried some mortal combat moves on one of their friends(14) and then they even figured to drown the body in the river :/
These dudes must of really been crazy.
God wtf is wrong with kids these days? Are they that fcking stupid? 48 years isn't enough, lock em in a dark cell and melt the key. Dumba$$es like that should never get the chance to further contaminate the gene pool.
A horrible thing has happend. A true tragedy.
But the worse thing is that another tragedy is in the making. Instead of going for the roots and real reasons behind this tragedy, they are blaming a really stupid outside element. In the last decade, media and most people have stopped worrying about real reasons of anything and just want to get rid of the responsiblity by putting the blame on the first thing they find.
2 people get "drunk", kill another by beating. Hasn't this happend before creation of MK and games? Yes but back then, some people cared to find out why those teens / murderers have become such monsters. Now, everyone just wants to blame video games and call it a day.
I'm terribly sad to hear this but I believe that not only those teens but their families and teachers of 2 teen murderers are responsible. A responsibilty that they'll likely never accept.
Ripping him apart and start eating him while he´s alive...
I always finish my foes with a friendship. The gift of killing an sharing
my comment got blocked but yet i see alot of other mortal kombat punchlines about it why aint they blocked but it is a shame that crap happend but im sure they will blame the game for the murder
finish her. sorry i couldnt resist. not because im a stupd prick but because all this stupidity involving games. the human being is violent by nature. everyone got their own big scary wolf inside. the inteligent ones dont let it come up for a snack. ppl kill ppl... even before games.
years ago the TV was responsible for teenage rage, after that was the music and its violent lyrics. nowadays it's games. what's next ? stephen king's books ?
ps - the "finish her" was just to grab attention :P
Some people are just plain evil regardless of upbringing. They're classified as "sociopaths."
Read the following comment for more: http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
You want proof?
How about the fact that they are less than 18 and playing a game rated as 18+? More importantly, how about the fact that they are underage and drinking alcohol?
If that's not a sign of bad parenting then I don't know what is.
What proof was given that showed that any of the kid's parents are guilty of bad parenting?
First, where did the kids play Mortal Kombat? We don't know.
Second, where did the kids get the beer? Did the boyfriend bring it? Did the dead girl's mother even know he was there? Did HIS parents know he was there?
Just because blaming the parents is a very easy excuse for those too intellectually lazy to wait for the FACTS does not mean that that is the primary cause behind this tragedy.
The only thing we know for certain at this point is that two teens brutally killed a 7-year old girl.
Wait for the facts before you pass judgement on the parents. In the future, you will experience at least a few instances where bad kids resulted from good families. It happens just as great kids can rise out of the worst of conditions. I know; I worked with troubled kids for years.
