Teen Bought Video Game. Mother Got Angry. Teen Stabbed Mother.

On Feb. 19 in Japan's Aichi Prefecture, police arrested a fourteen year-old boy. Earlier that evening, he apparently stabbed his mother with a sashimi knife. The cause? A dispute over a video game purchase.

The story is too old to be commented.

What game did he buy? If it was a bad game I can understand why the mother got mad.

LOL I was wondering the same thing. If this had happened in the US of A that would be the headline: "SuperViolentGameX causes teen to brutally stab mother"

Damn here we go again man these crazy ass kids these days what happened to the good old days were parents beat ur ass for getting out of line?

The government happened. A parent can get arrested for so much as yelling at their kid now.

Well if he payed for it with his own money. She shouldn't
have had gotten angry.

Nothing to indicate whether it was his own money though. I've had my mum getting angry enough times at my video game purchases when I was younger to learn that it's usually justified, parents don't want their child wasting money on video games.

Have to laugh at the excuse though, sounds like something my brother would say if he stabbed my mum.

Hey! video games are not a waste of money :P They are fun, can be educational and its healthy to indulge in a hobby, no matter how different it is.
Although I can see your point, the generation gap is hard to bridge so they don't really understand. I know my mother didn't. Maybe I should have stabbed her.
