Dude, you're 24 years of age and you're blaming videogames?

Actually I think we are misled on this. The kid probably didn't think that at first. But his lawyer told him that it was probably his only chance to escape death row, so the kid had no choice but to believe it.

The lawyer is the one that produced this accusation, not the kid.

He stabbed an 80 year-old man 70 times, gouged out an eye & shot him, but didn't "intentionally kill him." I do believe it's time we start sending attorneys to the chair with their clients because that argument if completely absurd.
