The teenagers were playing the game "Call of Duty Saturday"

Christ, are they releasing them weekly now?!

Should arrest them anyway. Large groups of teenagers are up to no good.

Reminds me of Nick Swardson's standup where he was talking about how he and his friends were getting so into the game screaming at each other that the neighbor thought they were making violent gay porn every night.

I don't think I know any CoD where your character screams for help after being shot - Battlefield 3 multiplayer they do.

DROP THE CONTROLLER AND GET ON THE GROUND!! LET ME SEE THOSE HANDS!

It does in Call of Duty Saturday. You haven't played it; you don't know.

Of course it isn't:

Police left the apartment without taking anyone into custody or writing any citations.


They didn't even shoot the dog.

ftfa : Police left the apartment without taking anyone into custody or writing any citations

what the hell ? would you expect them to arrest the kids for doing nothing, why is this stated almost with surprise. this is the 2nd no knock article today, albeit in two different countries, it is as if we are being conditioned or something... can these kids sue for violation of anything they may have similar to what used to be our 4th amendment ?

oh you guys already covered it. my bad

2013-01-29 11:27:27 AM
Should be arrested just for playing that crappy game.

This story has everything: video games, gun violence (albeit simulated), paranoid bystanders, and over zealous police. Only in America.

Plus they are playing violent video games. Arrest them all it's the only way to keep the children safe.

I mean it's Sweden, their jails have got to be safe.

well played. I like that.

My former roommates once thought I was having a huge, violent fight with my girlfriend. She was screaming profanities intermixed with 'I'm sorry'.

It was a UT2004 marathon, and she kept instajib launching me into death.
 
2013-01-29 11:43:30 AM
Great game, did the cops play?

Two words for these kids; Turtle Beach.
 
2013-01-29 11:52:07 AM
It would have been a better story if, when the 10 policeman raid busted in, the kids all grabbed their real guns and had a shootout with the police squad as a result of their conditioning by violent video games. The media wouldn't even know which possible direction of many to spin it.
 
2013-01-29 11:55:11 AM
Back in the day you could crank up the sound so the speakers threw the monitor out of whack and everyone on the block could enjoy your game of Doom.
 
2013-01-29 11:56:17 AM
I have neighbors that can get pretty loud with their fps games. The thing is that if there really was a shootout in the house with automatic weapons it would be a helluva lot louder than what I could hear.
 
2013-01-29 11:57:35 AM
I'm playing "call of duty now". Oops I'm meant "call of duty" now. Coincidence.
 
2013-01-29 11:57:50 AM
Easy to tell this didn't happen in America, there would have been multiple arrests/beat-downs and the family dog would have been shot.

My brother has a nice set up. A ridiculous surround system with 2 subwoofers. He lives in podunk PA so he can blast it as loud as he wants. When I visited him, he gave me the controller for a game of MW2 and I got a stealth bomber. It was probably the most realistic experience of the killstreak considering I was shaking where I stood.

The resulting derp black hole would rip the very fabric of space and time.

You'd think the passerbys would get suspicious that the house didn't look like swiss cheese considering the gunfire in a typical game.

I rented a room to a guy who had a TV + sound system so powerful I once ran to the front door thinking there had been a car crash right in front of my house.

Walked back inside thinking "effin a."

If the system is cranked up to eleventy and is not disorting, it's going to sound real to anyone nearby.

A similar thing happened to me in college, only it was with Halo. Back in the day smack talk used to be so vicious that you frightened your neighbors. These days all the kids just keep squeeking into their headsets that I'm "gay". It's a disappointing lack of creativity, and not even an insult anymore really. I blame the schools.

I'm such a nerd, I was thinking the same thing! Plus Battlefield is made by DICE, a Swedish game studio, makes sense.
