This is exactly what I was talking about

When I wrote this post a couple of days ago. I’m on CNN.com, and I see an article headline that says this, word for word: Teens charged in ‘Mortal Kombat’ killing

Two teens have been charged with killing the 7-year-old sister of one of them by beating her with imitations of moves from the “Mortal Kombat” video game, prosecutors said.

I have a newsflash for the prosecutor.  Mortal Kombat did not teach these kids to beat a 7 year old to death.  These kids beat a seven year old to death most likely because they are sick, twisted little bastards – but video games didn’t make them that way.

The article goes on to point out that at least one of the teen-aged murderers was drunk when he assisted in beating a little girl to death.  Teenagers drinking, what a surprise.  Teenagers drinking while babysitting a seven-year old shows that these little pieces of shit have no sense of responsibility.  As teenagers don’t really have a sense of responsibility anyway, it generally falls to their parents to teach it to them.  So in this case, the parents apparently skipped the day where you’re supposed to tell your child to not beat people to death.  You know, maybe something like this:

Parent: “Hey son/daughter, can I talk to you for a second?

Child: “What?”

Parent: “Just wanted to remind you, don’t get drunk while you’re underage and beat a little girl to death.”

I’m actually really angry about this issue for all sorts of reasons.  Either the parents of these kids absolutely failed in every regard, or the kids were just murderous sociopaths anyway is just part of why I’m upset.  The only good thing about this is that it is quite likely that both kids will be convicted, and will hopefully spend the next 40-50 years in prison, rotting.

  1. I’m guessing the first. Entirly uninvolved parents, and they definetly have some blood on their hands from this.

    When Columbine happened the first thing I thought was “How could they stockpile weapons and explosives at their parents’ house???”

    When I was a kid I stole a book of matches from the tinder box to light a bon fire. Dad found out, and I got in BIG trouble (and deserved it). When I got lousy grades one year I hid the note from the teacher at the bottom of my backpack, and had no intentions of showing it to my parents. They found that too, and again I was in trouble.

    I wasn’t too old when I relized what shit could fly, and what couldn’t.

    My Parents are wonderful people, and deserve more paise than I can give!

  2. They’ll most likely be out at 21 (juvenile offenders) with their records sealed.

    With liberty and justice for all my hairy Italian @$$…
