A month after he took the game away the kid killed them. It was pre-meditated, the child is a psycho-path. This ruling is very satisfying, he should be tried as an adult and never see the light of day for the rest of his meaningless existence.

The brutality and savagery in his slayings are not a symptom of addiction.

Sociopath.

Ok, the fact that he Killed his own parents should alone warrant the Life without parole. I am happy to see that he didn't get off on some lame ass loophole. Why do I have a feeling that this isn't the first time this is going to be used....

Sad... people are idiots when it comes to these kinds of things. Why kill someone about something, that you OBVIOUSLY need a break from? And why'd he have to go get grounded in the first place?

i agree. it's good to see that judges are getting over the "my game made me do it" phase. i've been playing gta since the original was released and i don't deal drugs kill hookers and have cops chases...

I'm glad to see this guy is getting the punishment he deserves and the judge isn't buying into the whole video game addiction thing. I remember reading the original article on Neo, iirc he tried to make it look like a murder-suicide after he killed his parents. That's not an addictive or influenced impulse, that's premeditation, and that's murder.

This is why I quit Xbox. *bleep*ing horrible people that make lives miserable like him on it.

I'd like to see the idiot die with his parents, his dad could die from the injurys and the kid should be executed on tv for everyone to watch.
