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?
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.
