Guy Shoots Cousin in the Head Over Scarface Game
Over the SCARFACE GAME!!!
22 year old Alejandro Garcia and his 17 year old cousin were sitting around with some friends, drinking, smoking weed, and (worst of all) playing the Scarface: The World Is Yours video game. The game is based on the movie in which Al Pacino stars as a Cuban refugee who descends into a world of drugs, crime and power (which for some reason resonates with every mainstream rapper ever).
Well, the four guys were taking turns playing the game when they forgot whose turn it was. Instead of putting down the bong and discussing this, or just having someone take a turn, Alejandro decided the best coarse of action, since his turn was like two guys away was to use violence. So, he proceeded shoot his cousin in the head at point blank range (of course, killing him). Because it was his turn, afterall.
Alejandro surrendered to the authorities and plead guilty to the shooting. He accepted a plea bargain that gave him 30 years in prison, where it'll pretty much always be his turn... ifyouknowwhatimsayinn

Uncle Kills 9 Year-Old Nephew Over Video Gamev
Fourth grade student Anthony Maldonado was spending the weekend with his uncle in the projects when 25-year-old Alejandro Morales — one of his uncle's roommates — stabbed him over a Tony Hawk skateboarding video game.
Allegedly, Morales stabbed 9 year old Anthony at around 3:30 am (because a 9 year old boy should be up playing video games at that hour) after two of Morales' brothers who also live in the apartment left to get food. After he was stabbed, Anthony staggered to his Uncle's room and knocked on the door, "Uncle, uncle, I've been stabbed," he said before collapsing.
The Uncle said his roommate was a "good-natured prankster" and said, "he was a friend. I can't believe this happened, he didn't act right on the street but he always minded his manners in the house." Police say Morales has a history of mental illness and a long rap sheet with "dozens of arrests."
Dozens of arrests. This is not the person you leave taking care of a young child. Someone with dozens of arrests.
Adult Man Chokes Schoolboy Over CoD Griefing
Talk about a sore loser.
Unemployed father of three, Mark Bradford, was furious when a 13-year-old boy killed his character during a game of Call Of Duty. Brandford said he "lost it" when the youngster goaded him over his online death. So he did what any rational, adult, parent would do... he found where the boy was (conveniently, 200 yards away) and choked him out.
The two had been playing COD: Black Ops against each other and apparently the kid had been talking smack the whole time.
The boy, who cannot be identified, said: 'I was just sat playing. We’d had a bit of a joke and then he stormed in and grabbed me. I didn't know what was going on."
The attack ended when the teenager's horrified mother pulled Bradford off the boy, who was left scratched and with a dark, reddened neck, while Bradford walked away without a word. But really what was he going to say? "YOU'RE the f*g!"? I think not.
What he did say in court was, "I'd been playing the whole day and he was baiting me and baiting me and just would not shut up. He went on and on and I just lost it. I hold my hands up, I lost the plot. In a moment of madness I went round to his house. I didn't know what I was going to do. It wasn't malice. I just grabbed him. I've seen him since and apologized. We've played online too. He's actually a decent kid."
That he almost killed.
The teenager's mother, 33, said: 'It’s pathetic that a grown man would attack a defenseless child like this. If you can’t handle losing to a child then you shouldn’t be playing games.'
Perhaps she should tell his son if he doesn't have anything nice to say, don’t' say it at all or at least make sure you're big enough to back it up and the other guy doesn't know where you live. Advice for all of us.
Guild War Turns Into Gang Warv
Sometimes what happens in-game, should stay in-game. This is one of the best examples. Ever.
In Lineage II, gamers gather into guilds to take on missions and to defeat rival guilds. Most of the time these raids result in nothing more than heated words over chat. In the mean streets of the Russian gaming scene though, they can lead to all out war (but really, anything can lead to war in the mean streets of Russian anything).
When two rival guilds went head to head in the game, the fight got so out of hand that they decided that there was no other choice but to take it to the streets (the actual streets). In a rumble straight out of West Side Story, the two gangs had it out, leaving one member dead.
I guess it is true what they say, in Russia, video game plays you.
Man Chokes Mom and Throws Kid After Being Told to Stop Playing W.o.W
A 27 year old named James Swan was having a few drinks and playing World Of Warcraft in the room he shares with this siblings because, shockingly, this guy still lives at home with his mother.
When he was getting a little too boisterous, his 50 year old mother came in to tell him to keep it down, the man responded in the only rational way possible, by grabbing her by the hair and throwing her on the bed (this isn't going where you think it's going).
His little brother was in the room and it's unclear as to what the boy did to provoke the attack but he ended up getting choked out on the bed as well.
When Swan's mother made a dash for the phone to call 911 Swan ripped the phone from the wall and then slammed his head into the wall causing a large hole, Hulk-style. He then grabbed his mother and began choking her, showing us all, at this point in the list, that The Simpsons has been a terrible influence on us all. That's when Swan's Grandfather came out and tried to get Swan to let go of his mother, but Swan continued to choke her and said he was going to "kill her".
So, the Grandfather decided he'd had enough of this b.s and pulled a gun on Swan. Swan then grabbed his Grandfather's arm which caused the firearm to go off. The bullet grazed Swan's ear and went through the window. Swan was taken to the hospital where he refused treatment and he was then taken to jail, where the WiFi connection is causing nothing but lag.
Chinese Man Stabs Virtual Thief in Real Life
This boils down to a question of ethics.
In a popular online game called Legend of Mir 3 you can apparently loan out your weapons, which is what Qiu Chengwei did. He lent Zhu Caoyuan his virtual sword, but scumbag Zhu sold it for 7,200 Yuan ($1140.39). While China has no laws to deal with the theft of virtual property, South Korea has a section of its police force that investigates in-game crime. So, Qui decided not to go through proper channels and took it upon himself to right this wrong and stabbed Zhu in the chest.
According to reports Mr. Zhu did offer to hand over the cash but Mr. Qiu lost patience and stabbed him with "great force" instead, dealing enough damage to permanently kill Mr. Zhu's character in real life.
"My son was only 26 when he died. He was sleeping when Qiu broke into his home. He was barely able to put his pants on before Qiu stabbed him," said his father, Zhu H*imin. "We want Qiu to die, and immediately," he added. This is some martial arts movie sh*t at this point. Also, who the hell puts on pants instead of defending themselves while being attacked?
This act has forced the government to consider its stance on virtual property, so next time you decide to squat in your friend's Sims house, be prepared for virtual, and possibly, real-life consequences.
British Man Murdered by German Rival
Oh, ze Germans.
David Heiss, 21, of Frankfurt, Germany allegedly stabbed and killed a man after having a "falling out with him in cyberspace". You can already tell the guy's insane because he calls it "cyberspace". Only people with the kind of power/psychosis found in The Lawnmower Man use that kind of language.
After Heiss killed the man he posted a message on the Facebook site of the victim's girlfriend, apologizing "for having caused so much trouble lately". Which, hey, he really had.
Heiss and the victim were fans of that strategy game Advance Wars and both men frequented message boards for the game. After the stabbing, one anonymous poster suggested other forum members may have known who was behind the killing, because it's proper etiquette to talk about a murder on a discussion board and not go to the authorities (the authorities = outside).
Heiss, who lists his main activities and interests on Facebook as the internet and video gaming, posted on the victim's girlfriends wall: "I will pray for you - you must be suffering unbelievable pain. I'm sorry for having caused so much trouble lately. I hope you won't lose all your hope. We will be there for you." (Who the hell is "we"???)
Heiss lists his occupation as "apprentice" (read: unemployed) and describes himself as a "jack of all trades/dogsbody". His Facebook site contains only one picture, and he has only 15 listed "friends".
