Here's the thing. If you can admit that publicly, without flinching, you have no remorse for it. Someone who was angry enough to do that, but then felt horrible after would never admit that, except to maybe a shrink or a close confidante. There's your psychopath, folks. Another Jodi Arias in the making.

Jodi Arias had emotions. This person is some flavour of psychopath.

Her confession was prompted by host Rajj Patel, who asked Scott and two other female gamers about the worst thing they had done.

"I stole some candy from a store once"
"I cheated on my boyfriend"
"I murdered a dog because I didn't like its owner"

Wow.  That's pretty twisted.  Of course, I'm not one to talk.  As a hospice nurse I beat the shiat out of the grannies of people that don't tip.  Speaking of, I have to go see about Gertrude in 103 next.  She's lucky she's already missing her teeth...

The thing that bugs me is that she just admitted to committing a felony (in California, where she lives, intentionally killing an animal can be either a misdemeanor or a felony, punishable by a fine of up to $20,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 1 year - she'd most likely be charged with a felony as it wasn't her animal and she was in a trusted position) on Twitch, and yet Twitch is dragging its feet as to whether to condemn this asshole or ban her from the platform?

She'd have been better off admitting that she aborted a baby to spite the father.

This text is now purple: What did being a gamer have to do with it?


I wondered that, too.

And then I READ THE FARKING ARTICLE.

She's a "name" because she's a gamer who broadcasts on Twitch. Because of this, she was being interviewed and made this statement when someone asked what the worst thing was that she had ever done.

That fact that she is a gamer is relevant because it explains who she is, and why she's being interviewed in the first place. It was right there, not hard to find at all...
 
2018-03-01 01:19:37 PM  
That's sad, but not as sad as being a Twitch broadcaster.
 
2018-03-01 01:20:33 PM  
When Patel asked for clarification, Scott responded: "Yeah, but no one knew because, you know, I'm a professional."

Yeah, that isn't "professional", you worthless coont.
 
2018-03-01 01:21:42 PM  
I assume she fed the dog poison or ODed it on medication or something. Stabbing, shooting, or bludgeoning the dog would be a bit of a giveaway.

It's not at the same level. As a hospice nurse what are you going to do, make their situation worse? And you had an outside shot of capping off their medical expenses.

I haven't seen a whole lot of game streamers but I have never seen a male streamer wearing a vest or tight t-shirt and I have never seen a female streamer wearing baggy clothing. I'm going to go ahead and suggest that 'game streamer' (at least in this case) would more honestly be called 'cam whore'.

I would welcome examples which prove me wrong.

That may be the case, but if people want to watch it, why not?  Personally I don't get the appeal of watching other people play games.  I had plenty of that back in the SNES and Genesis days waiting for my turn with the controller.

It's hearsay without investigation, would be my guess, but I'm no lawyer. However, Twitch isn't exactly constrained by rules of evidence, here.  It's not like the Oscars had to wait for a conviction before bouncing Weinstein - credible accusation was enough. She self-incriminated on Twitch, yet Twitch has said exactly dick about it even when confronted with it.
 
2018-03-01 01:46:04 PM  
She might lose some of her 1180 followers.  Or maybe not, perhaps they watch her with the volume off.

I didn't, either, until I watched a Twitch stream of folks playing SWTOR, the MMO in which I'm currently frittering away my life, and realizing that:
1. It was fun watching other people react to something I'd already played, and to enjoy a shared, yet slightly different experience, and;
2. This may sound pathetic, but, I felt a bit less isolated by watching something that I enjoy being enjoyed by others, live, in real time.

I can see the attraction. I can't see myself paying for it, never mind running a Twitch stream & expecting people to pay me, but I can understand the pleasure of a shared experience.

I can't help but wonder if this was a bad spur of the moment attempt at free publicity and a lie.  I'm sure it would be easy for the cops to find out if she ever worked for a vet or not.

Near as I can tell she still hasn't been online since this happened but she's actually gained almost 200 followers since the article was written.  She had 1180 then, 1376 right now.  Probably all people that want to pipe bomb her chat whenever she goes online.  She has a sub button but I don't know how to tell how many subs she has.

I'll watch a streamer play a game I'm interested in.  There's been a few that I was going to buy and once I watched the game realized it would be a game I'd spend money on and play for a day or two and end up not liking.

Some of the streamers really are entertaining.  My favorites are TVSBOH and Sattelizergames

FormlessOne: Twitch has said exactly dick about it even when confronted with it.


I suggest reexamining why you find Twitch's silence offensive; especially knowing that people do stupid shiat all the time simply for attention. Condemnation accomplishes very little besides drawing more attention to her. All Twitch needs to do, and probably is doing now, is consolidating all of her usage details into a nice neat little care package that they can hand over to whatever law enforcement agency decides to investigate.

Well, there goes her fallback career as a vet tech when her Twitch star fades, which it surely will now.

Pretty amazing to see someone slam the door AND the window of career opportunity at the same just to try to one-up some colleagues in a pointless online interview.

On occasion I like listening to the game grumps. I was talking with my friends the other day, trying to pin down the appeal, and the angle we came up with is it's like listening to a talk show on the radio, except with video games instead of whatever other boring crap.

Gamer, female, christian, American, under 6', size 7 shoe, right handed, has college degree, sleeps on her side, like toast extra dark, and takes cream with her coffee, that worked at a vet admits that she killed dogs when she didn't like the owners. Was that wrong, should I have not done this?

To be fair there is a difference between a professional gamer and a Twitch streamer. One goes to championships competing for prizes, the other verbally sucks off donors and makes their forever alone hearts feel like they are loved.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are some or many who do both but that isn't always the case.

I'm not exactly anti-abortion but I don't think there's anything in the US case law that suggests the right to an abortion extends to the right to abort a fetus out of spite. There's no absolute right to obtain an abortion for any reason at any time. That may be some people's preferred interpretation, but it's not what the courts have said. State's can't impose a ban on abortion pre-viability and can't place an undue burden on abortion pre-viability. But a "You can't get an abortion out of anger" clause would not appear to violate either of those criteria. (Such a prohibition would be trivially easy to circumvent, making it not an undue burden).

State's are allowed to regulate pre-viability abortions to ensure that the decision to obtain an abortion is an informed one. Barriers to pre-viability abortions are valid so long as they don't impose an undue burden. An undue burden exists, and therefore a provision of law is invalid, if its purpose or effect is to place substantial obstacles in the path of a woman seeking an abortion before the fetus attains viability.

So no, I don't think anyone has a 'right' to abort a fetus out of spite. 

But in any event, that wasn't really the point of the original post. I just meant that if she was going to troll for improved visibility she could have picked a better topic. Euthanizing a dog is kinda amateur hour (and, as you point out, more likely to be universally condemned) compared to the various routes she could have gone. Note that I am assuming for her benefit that she was simply making up something outrageous for publicity, rather than actually admitting to (what would be in most jurisdictions) a serious crime during a live interview.

As a female gamer streamer who streams D&D in her PJs and sweater, I've seen both male and female streamers who play up their looks to get views. There's more who play up their "persona" like a WWE wrestler to get followers and patreon donations. Think PewDiePie and KingofSweden.

I don't blame them, it's a dog-eat-dog world out there and we're all hustling. You have to have your angle, advertise, and network well.
