In Spokane, Washington, a 20-year-old man was arrested on felony stalking charges after chatting to a 15-year-old girl on Xbox Live and eventually threatening to rape the girl and her sister.
These people think they can say threatening things to scare students and children and nothing will happen to them? I hope this idiot goes to jail for scaring little kids. Better yet, let the girl's dad have 10 minutes with the guy in a locked room first.
lol this is why i have a ps3 instead. 360's are full of either squeeky girly voiced 11 year old boys, or it's full of 20-50 year old perverted rapists.
As soon as home hits people will be acting crazy on there as well! However 360 does have its fair share of sicko's and racist's but this is an issue that goes well beyond live. There should be a way to label exactly what kind of player your gaming with.
It's the internet... Not Xbox Live. Anyone with any experience knows the internet is home to the socially inept dirtbags of the world. At least Xbox Live has a very strict rule set that is to be followed whereas you can pretty much do whatever you want on the internet.

[/END QUOTE ----------------------------- ------------------------------ - -- You're a clown. "this is why i have a ps3 instead. deeef" I meet some cool ass people on Xbox Live playing "M" Rated Games occasionally. Key words here, "M" f*cking rated. Good lord, the dude was probably joking around and she @ 15 should not be playing adult games. I mean, really, what's the guy gonna do online? If he were serious I would like to beat his ass but she shouldn't be playing with the big boys at 15 on "M" rated games anyhow. Edit: My bad, I didn't read past the headline until now. I didnt realise how far he took it. Yeah, that sick S.O.B. should stick to his own aged woman. That's just sad going for middle school chicks. ...and "Anything but Cute" - You're kind of making me think twice about your intentions here after reading some disturbing things you've typed... and I think your avatar just adds fuel to the fire. I'm definitely suggesting but not accusing. If I were you (that sexually frustrated), I would strongly suggest lowering your standards in women so you can actually get 'some', or having yourself a full blown weekend on Internet porn until you're stick is raw and it's out of your system...That or talk to a psychiatrist. Hahaha I'm serious, dude. That sh*t ain't normal. Hahahaha
WTF does this have to do with Xbox Live users? This sh*t would happen on PS3 just as well if Sony offered a free mic with every PS3. It happens everywhere there is communication! Pull your narrow-minded head out of your ass kid and join us down here on earth. You stupid asses who spin this on making us Xbox Live users look like trash need a muthaFawkin reality check!
When Home rolls around, I garuntee that there will be a problem with perverts bringing younglings to their virtual apartment where they have real porn playing on their virtual big screen tv's. PSN will probably turn into a stinking cespool of pedophiles. I know my kid will not be playing on PSN.
Dude he drove 40 hours to get there and started driving by their house. I doubt "the dude was probably joking around"
I completely agree with you. This problem extends far beyond xbox live to the very nature of what we consider manhood.
Why bother with little girls? Sick bastard. I bet he's a virgin. Edit @to the little girl below What are you talking about? How can you come to the conclusion that I find this funny when I haven't post anything that says that I find it so? And yes I do infact find him sexualy frustrated and indeed he should go to jail or atleast take some mental classes. I'm 19 years old, male and I'm not a person that would express myself, flirt or even say those [email protected]$$ things that he said to a 15 year old girl. Heck I wouldn't even say (as in talk sexually to a woman I just met) or stalk a girl my age, that's just retarded. If I like a woman I simply go up to her as a the man that I am, express my feelings towards her, if she rejects, fine by me, the hell am I going to do stalk? Hell no. You surprise me today Anything but Cute, I've always seen your posts and even though I disagree with most of them, your opinion on this story just baffles me. I hope that when you grow up and have a daughter, you wouldn't be happy if a 80 year old old man sexually harasses her.
and now you want him locked up in jail. And you think it's funny. Wow, aren't you amazing.
I use to think you were just a PS3 hater but no big thing. But after this comment I've coming to realize your more childish than I had originally thought. It's sad to see people like you on the internet starving for attention even if its in the negative light. You'll be the first person I've placed on ignore. Congrats!
you disgust me, an adult who acts in the manner he did towards a minor deserves to be locked up for a long time, just the intent is enough for me especially when children are concerned. If you were a parent you would realize this, if you are then you should know better your a lowlife
I bet major nelson is heart broke over this
should be fined extra for thinking there were lots of girls there to stalk...
I have never heard a female voice on xbl.
LOL. I hear it most of the time but those aren't girls but squeaky voiced kids whose ball's havn't dropped. I bet this girl is actually a young boy with high pitched voice. Would be fun if its true and he confronts the stalker in the courtroom. Another thing, out of 7million live users we're bound to face some percentage of sickos, but what about thousands of paedophiles in chat rooms across the world trying to lure young people for their ghastly intentions? Anyway, this 20yr old sicko shud have his 360 taken from him and he shud be locked up with some 40+ yr old Rednecks waiting to cash in on his a$$.
I've only ever played against one girl on XBL. And she soundly kicked my butt on DOA4. She was everyone's hero for embarrassing the snot out of this racist kid to the point where he just left the game.
That wouldn't happen with Wii friends codes :D
people think they can say anything they want online, and I'm all for free speech but there are always limits, so I hope micro also starts identifying and banning those gamertags of members who constantly spew their racist hate filled remarks online also, but ONLY after they have verifiable proof/recordings etc of members displaying this behavior. JOY
I want to kick him in his balls so he can never masturbate ever again
cant lock them all up i cant tell ya the amount of people on my ignore list know that i read it this guy is sick
Only the 360 can bring you second to none stalking technology. -zhuck
If only the PSN had the amount of users that is the juggernaut Xbox Live. Oh well, garbage online services don't do it for real gamers, I guess.
"Oh well, garbage online services don't do it for real gamers, I guess." Yeah, I hear that Xbox live has been awesome just recently. Enjoy your BROKEN full of little racist squeaky kids online service. Oh what's that? You actually pay for that GARBAGE?
dear fandroid, I am reporting you to the admins for defamation. Zhuk does not condone or approve of any stalking or any illegal behaviour on Xbox Live, especially ones that is discriminatory or predatory to anyone of any race or gender. Xbox Live is about community and friendship and I denounce and condemn the actions of anyone who uses the service for such heinous crimes. I suggest you watch your words about such a serious crime, this is not a joke.
Only the award winning Xbox Live can deliver the best in lag free nextgen child stalking and raping. Now with less adult supervision!
Yeah. Please sir, can I have some more B.S? Report away tool. You contact lawyers to pursue defamation cases. Not admins on a forum. You xbots really have me convinced that you think N4G is something close to reality for you. Do your worst zuckie darling. I'll be here LoL`ing at you forever.
what's with people thinking the world is perfect or someshit? You guys never had a problem in your F*cken life. It's a troubled world, it's a troubled life. It sucks even more that pathetic bandwagon jumpers that think everything is perfect and people should be hung for acting up. Oh well, that guy will be back out in the streets in no time, he didn't do anything.
A familiy member of yours?
That was a little overboard. I would even use the word "sick" to classify your response.
Lol i clicked agree after the 1st few sentences but i wish i could take it back when he mentioned limb cutting and torturing...he mustve seen hostel or Saw 1 too many times.
You guys talk about live having sickos? We dont need to look far do we? Reading couple of comments in this thread will show you.
It's funny how you say you don't have to go far to hear a sicko Live member. Well thats funny cause this article is about Live, and yet it is full of PS3 fans. Now go and look at all the posts and you will see that all the "sicko" comments are from PS3 girls.
im starting to think your this person! please stop with your stupid comments. he shouldnt have done what he did, end of!
rofl he found her address and phone number just by googling her name. i'm guessing she's from the us, chicks here are so stupid now days.
So you're a proponent for capital punishment and torture, AND a sexist! That's wonderful!
Chicks? Judging from who's running your country you are all a bunch of dimwits. That's what happens when you let a new born christian take care of politics. "Death to the heretics! Let's bomb terrism til' it can't bomb us no more!" lol!
who learns a lesson from being raped? i'd think that they would be too traumatized that someone raped them to learn anything.
marts off to jail.
Hahahahah. That is definitely my favorite comment of the year =].
COTY coment of the year right there bubbles ++++++++++
Got what he deserved.
i think he needs to go in for longer.
A lot of people in online gaming are always using phrases like "i'm gonna rape you" or "we just raped them" .. i find it a totally inappropriate word to use! the word "rape" should not be used lightly, and i say to many people online if they fully understand what the actual meaning is. I find it sick that the term is used in such a fashion. But yeah, that guy deserves everything that is coming to him. Like i said, i find it sick that the word rape is even used in online gaming, and people should not be encouraged to use that word! especially kids!!!!! I would like to see this term banished forever within the online gaming community!
There's nothing wrong with using the word "rape" to describe your play online. Before you all jump to the disagree button, look up the word in your dictionary. It doesn't only pertain to a forced sexual act on someone.
What a sick and twisted world we live in, eh? This guy sounds like he's serious. Some people are just crazy and sometimes there's no explanation for it. Some people are just crazy.
"During a police interview, the suspect admitted that he was able to obtain the girl’s address and phone number by “Googling” her name. He also admitted to driving 40 hours straight to get from New York to Spokane." Wow, what a sick fcker @ #9 Anything but Cute, its not that I'm implying the world should be perfect, but when a guy 1. googles a girl phone #, 2. drives 40 hrs straight from New York to Spokane, Washington 3. Drives by the 15 yr old girls house, 4. Threatens to rape her and her sister.... its alot more than a *little dirty joke*= Did you even read this news? if they don't arrest this sick fck then who should they ever arrest, huh? or should they only arrest sick bastards after they have molested/killed little girls? @ #9.1 ddldave, your post starts off very sensible but with comments like this: "oh by the way i think the chick should of been raped" somehow you end up sounding just as sick as the pedophile this news is about, nobody deserves to get rape and your comment is an example of what I stated earlier, people think they can say anything online when their anonymous, its pathetic. JOY
man, your head's on straight! bubbles!!!
1 thing to say here no one online is anonymous . ip addresses can be tracked . my thoughts are saying something is one thing (doesnt make it right ) but a lot of people make idle threats blah over the internet but this person went beyond idle threats to actually hunting down and going to her place of residence. now me being a parent , if i found out that some sick fukwit threatened to rape my daughter and actually come near my place of residence id gladly do time for hospitalizing the pervert. im not stupid i know the net is full of perverts and as someone stated any form of communication brings this threat. ps3 owners dont think that psn users are any safer because that threat is always there so be vigilant .from this micro is from what i can see is at least acting on the problem , so thumbs up to them . just a word of warning to any parents out there always be mindful of who you are letting your children play and communicate with, there should be no room for sickos in the gaming community but like trolls on these games site theres always gonna be some sneak in.
I don't know if I'm more surprised that this guy was stalking a girl over XBL or that there are girls on XBL.
HE PROBABLY WON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE XBOX LIVE PROBLEMS
As the old joke goes: There are no girls on the internet. They're all guys, guys pretending to be girls, or guys trying to catch the guys talking to guys pretending to be girls.
there no girls on the internet then you sir are wrong but saying there no girls on XBL then that maybe a possibility since there less than 10% of girls are using x-box 360 or had a x-box 360. Btw way xbl are full of guys just like PSN and some are nerd/geek, looser, racist, retarded, gay/bisexual, and psycho
@ddldave - Did they already let you out? Well hopefully you didn't pick up the soap.... oh, nevermind. @IGNFTW - Guess not, welp good thing I won't hafta play with you then. And if I have a daughter and something like this happens.. ƒuck the law, someones gettin an ass beatin.
ddlave, you seriously seem like a disturbed person. and Anything but Cute, JokesOnYou is right, as he said "1. googles a girl phone #, 2. drives 40 hrs straight from New York to Spokane, Washington 3. Drives by the 15 yr old girls house, 4. Threatens to rape her and her sister...." you think this is ok?!!! anythingbutcute, sorry... but man if you think this is ok you are one very strange individual. what he did is against the law and to the extent he took it including traveling there and threating to rape her and her sister. If he was just saying this online and didn't do anything else i could at least see your reasoning, but this guy is one sick individual! Then again...did you even read the article? becasue if you didn't at least i could see that you probably though he just was doing this on xbl and that was it. But that wasn't the case here.
This is a perfect example on why the sony fanboys are the worst of the bunch. As you can see from these comments you can clearly see how ignorant they are. If you seriously believe that the PSN network or any other online network for that matter is filled with well mannered people than you seriously need a reality check. Wil4hire still talking out of his ass I see. One of the dumbest kids in here.
Yup, first time you said something that I agree with. Regardless be it XBox Live or PSN, there is always the chance of something like this happening. Btw, from your Avatar, did you see the new Hulk movie coming out? I sure as hell hope its better than the last one. Not that it was terrible...just could have been so much better.
It's very frustrating to be lumped into a category of Sony 'fandroids' (is that what we're saying?) just because some use a stalking story to assert a particular console's dominance or superiority. I have a PS3. I love it dearly. I do not own a 360. It's A MATTER OF PREFERENCE. So everyone should chill the f**k out. Have a great New Year!
These guys need to join UNO games. They will end up arresting plenty of people.
I didn't know Oingo Boingo was on XBL lol
and I only got a minute and a half in...
This guy really need a girlfriend and if he doesn't why doesn't he go to a night club and get a fake ID if he's under 21, btw how stupid can you be threatening a girl while chatting and how on earth can you rape her if you don't know where she located that just lame and retarded
i know this has nothing to do with it but i like the South Park pic for this article...
Female gamers are a myth; I have yet to find a female who's as addicted to gaming as I am. Seriously situations like this makes it even less enjoyable to play online games when idiots like this run around. Makes me glad I'm almost 26 and still "factory sealed" so I don't have to worry about garbage like this in the future.
my daughter plays it more than i do lol
not a myth, mythic! as for the news, the guy is clearly a rat but that sort of ratty-ness is by no means limited to XBL. For everyone that keeps commenting that he just said stuff over XBL, read the article; the dude drove forty hours straight and was outside her house. super rat.
"this is why i have a ps3 instead. 360's are full of either squeeky girly voiced 11 year old boys, or it's full of 20-50 year old perverted rapists." So for some bizarre reason you think a free open service will have less wierd people :-) Its very easy to mute someone forever on XBL or for MS to ban the console from live can this be done on PSN?
