4tehsnowflakes: ABC News spoke to Rhonda O'Bankee, who blamed the crimes on the teens' obsession with a video game called "Skyrim". Ms. O'Bankee explained to a panel of concerned parents that the game, which critics say blurs the line between fantasy and reality, encourages children to believe they can break into houses and take things, as long as they don't get caught. Urging parents to cut their teens off from the video games, O'Bankee noted that Skyrim has no in-game consequences for trying to sell stolen goods to law-abiding citizens. The 33 year old, who delivered the speech on crutches, explained that she had recently had an accident at the archery range.
