PS4 has ZERO street cred.

I thought Chicago was a gun-free zone?

SEE, VIDEOGAMES DO CAUSE GUN VIOLENCE!

That's only for law-abiding folks.

I blame the coolness of the new systems. Nobody ever even arm wrestled for a Sega CD.

If only Chicago hadn't been forced to allow 13 year olds to buy guns by the courts....

Not anymore.
They found one.

When will we address the real problem?

Cousins.

Cousins are for visiting on holidays and vacations.  If you are in daily contact with your cousins, then violence is sure to happen.

Don't believe me?  Read Shakespeare.  Cousins are bad news.

I see this article fails to mention that the suspect also teabagged the victim while shouting slurs in a high pitched voice.

The only possible answer to a bad 13-year-old with a gun is a good 13-year-old with a gun.

Might as well double down. Dare we guess the race of the principals involved? Hint: Chicago.

It lost its life when it tried to jump in front of the bullet. But since it is non-sentient, it does not count.

Shoulda shot through it instead.

If he would have had his own Xbox; this wouldn't have happened....

When someone brings a knife to an X-Box fight, bring a gun.  It's the Chicago way.

Can't you see that if people were only allowed to purchase a maximum of 5 games; this wouldn't happen. We'll call it a magazine limit...

Clearly the answer is more guns and more gun training.

Pointy Tail of Satan: Why was his cousin over an XBox?


Clearly his cousin was possessed by a demon, and was hovering over the Xbox at the time of the shooting. This was self-defense.

I am disappointed in the lack of vagina in that link, sir. I have been deceived.

ultraholland:   I blame the coolness of the new systems. Nobody ever even arm wrestled for a Sega CD.

Or during my childhood - pretty much everyone accepted the fact that the Atari 2600 was a POS and I doubt anyone was desperate to get that system.

Maybe the Colecovision was worth an arm wrestle.

I'm a white kid who grew up in upper middle class suburbs, but i swear, had i had access to a firearm, i would've shot my eldest brother.... Hated his guts.    We get along great now 30 years later.... just saying...

Could be any one of a plethora of races.

Compared to today, yes. For their time, they were awesome.

I'm going to go on a limb on this and boldly guess that no homicides ever resulted from the pong machine.

electric shocks maybe.
 
2014-01-06 08:09:38 PM
people are raising terrible kids this days. If I was this kid's dad... he'd know that shooting a relative would result in having his xbox privileges taken away for at least a week.

Internecine warfare.

Why can't they read a book instead?
