North Carolina Killer: I Played GTA Before Double Murder

May 14, 2008 -

A 22-year-old convicted killer claims that he played Grand Theft Auto just before murdering two housemates in 2005.

As reported by the Fayetteville Observer, James Christopher Stitt is waiting to learn whether he will be executed or face life in prison for the gruesome double slaying. Stitt told a psychiatrist that he played GTA until 4 a.m. and then committed the killings. The psychiatrist, Dr. Moira Artigues, testified:

He went in and killed George and Jenna in a state where he was like an automaton, not in control of his actions at the time.

The newspaper report notes:

[Dr.] Artigues... did not suggest that there was a connection between the video game and the murders.... Artigues said Stitt seems at times to live in a fantasy world and she wasn’t even sure that the version of the murders he described to her was the truth. He told a different story — in which Grand Theft Auto wasn’t mentioned — to his girlfriend, according to earlier testimony.

Courtroom testimony also revealed that the convicted murderer had an extremely troubled childhood.

You can stop posting now, I think we get it.

My only question....

My only question is how certain people would react if he had read something before doing the killings, like the works of Shakespeare or the bible?

Well there's biblical games.

Well there's biblical games. Therefore games were responsible. Therefore GTA4 is for kids & must be banned.

Any shakespearean games? An RPG of Othello would be awesome, you have to manipulate everyone into killing each other without being busted yourself.

Now that I think of it, I thought I saw something in/on Wired about a MMORPG some college professor made, but I assumed it was a April Fools joke...

Speaking of "jokes," the new comment system is really buggy like with the returns/enters.  Sometimes it acts like I entered 2-4 extras when I only did 1 return.

OK, the CAPTCHA is EQUALLY as annoying and fustrating as rapidshare.

Nah shakey's stories have

Nah shakey's stories have always been about the one man at the centre of everything, an MMO would be against the whole spirit of the thing. Using his name on an MMO would be about as insulting as using "Rainbow Six" in the title of Vegas 2

VERIFIED/SWORN STATEMENT

VERIFIED/SWORN STATEMENT OF
JOHN B. THOMPSON

My name is John B. Thompson. I am a resident of Miami-Dade County, Florida, a citizen of the United States, more than eighteen years of age, a lawyer in continuous good standing with The Florida Bar for thirty-one years, an officer of the court, and bound and mandated by state and federal misprision of felony statutes to report any crimes of which I am aware.

At approximately five o’clock p.m., Saturday, May 10, 2008, my son, who is fifteen years of age, purchased by himself, with no parent or guardian in sight, a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV rated “Mature” by the Entertainment Software Rating Board at Best Buy Store #557 at Dadeland Station in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, Florida. The point of sale cashier from whom he bought the game, “Iris,” asked for no age identification whatsoever from him. She sold it to him, no questions asked.

This failure to verify the age of my son for this sale violates not only solemn promises made by the video game industry to do so, but it specifically violates Best Buy Chairman Brian Dunn’s streaming video/audio promise made to all Americans at www.bestbuy.com to strictly enforce the age ratings on games.

Further, I sued Best Buy a few years ago because of its chronic refusal and failure to comply with the age ratings on games. As a result of that suit, Best Buy, in writing, agreed to henceforth age ID anyone appearing to be 21 years of age or under. It issued national press releases proclaiming its new strict policy. My son had been able to buy, on his own Grand Theft Auto: Vice City at the age of ten prior to this agreement. Since our solemn written agreement and since Best Buy’s new “policy,” my underage son has been able to buy three other “Mature” games at this very same Best Buy store.

Formal findings by the United States Federal Trade Commission issued last week show that Best Buy is still not uniformly complying with its age verification promises. Elliot Kaplan, who was Best Buy’s record counsel in the aforementioned case is also a director on the national Board of Best Buy. Kaplan has been informed of each and every instance of Best Buy’s violation of its agreement with me and its promises made to American parents. He has obviously done nothing whatsoever effectual to get Best Buy, whose interests he “serves” to comply with its agreements and public promises in these regards. This is shocking, outrageous conduct by an officer of the court, Mr. Kaplan, and his conduct will be shared with the Minnesota and Florida Bars.

Immediate News Release –

Immediate News Release – May 10, 2008

Sting on Best Buy:
15-Year-Old Buys Grand Theft Auto IV with No Parent in Sight and No Check of Age I.D.

The last several weeks have seen more worldwide news coverage surrounding the April 29 release date of the Mature-rated, pornographic, hyper-violent Grand Theft Auto IV cop-killing video game than any other video game in history.

Every single video game retailer in the world knows that this is the most controversial video game ever, and it should know the danger of selling this pornographic game which constitutes “sexual material harmful to minors” to anyone underage.

Best Buy is currently being sued by Miami attorney and anti-violent/porn video game activist Jack Thompson for its chronic failure to enforce its video game age ID-checking “policy” Thompson sued Best Buy three years ago and compelled it by his suit to check age IDs of anyone appearing to be 21 years of age or younger in order to catch anyone under 17. Since then, Thompson has repeatedly proven that Best Buy does not enforce its “policy.” Despite this, Best Buy’s CEO, Brian Dunn, brazenly states at its corporate web site, BestBuy.com, that it strictly adheres to this policy.

Bull.

Today, Saturday, May 20, 2008, at 5:10 pm, a 15-year-old boy walked up to check-out register #6 at the Dadeland Store #557 Best Buy store and purchased, no questions asked, no age ID asked for, no parent in sight, a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV from “Iris.” Ten minutes later, “Customer Experience Manager” Camy Gomez was informed that his store, once again, had broken its solemn promise to American parents to strictly enforce its video game purchase age ID “policy.” Quite the “Customer Experience.” Mr. Gomez said that “Iris” would be reprimanded. Mr. Gomez was informed that GameStop fires, on the spot, any clerk violating its age ID policy. The store manager is fired instantly as well. Mr. Gomez looked worried. He should. Affidavits are being prepared this moment.

The greatest lie told today in the American retail industry is the lie that video game retailers are uniformly checking age IDs of kids buying “Mature-rated” video games.

This sting today is hugely useful to Jack Thompson in his suit against Best Buy. It is beyond disastrous for the video game industry, especially Take-Two Interactive Software. Thompson met one year ago this week with Take-Two Chairman Strauss Zelnick and begged him to stop marketing and selling his company’s “Mature” games to underage kids. Thompson told him that all Take-Two had to do to get legislators and family groups off his back was to tell retailers caught selling Take-Two’s “Mature” games to kids that product would be withheld from the offending retailers. Zelnick laughed and said he would sell his “fine art” to whomever he wanted to sellit, citing his previous leadership in the music business of marketing and selling raunchy rap music to other parents’ kids.

Prediction: Mr. Zelnick, along with his company, will eventually be convicted of interstate trafficking in pornography to minors. This sting today is simply the latest nail in this scofflaw company’s coffin.

Re: Immediate News Release –

I love how when a gamer tells him he's played games his whole life and has never even thought about killing any one, that he's a statistic of one and has no real bearing on society as a whole


how ever, when his son goes and perchases a game without being age checked, it's proof that all of bestbuy is selling this game without doing age checks

My thanks to you

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

get rid of that stupid CAPTCHA crap

At least it isn't rapidshare, but I do find the caps bit is the most annoying part of this one(G or a 6? O or a 0?  WTF, is that a small c... ETC.)  And a refresh/reload would be nice.

Silly Thompson posts a

Silly Thompson posts a silly wall-o-text.

What does this have to do exactly with this story? You keep saying that video games are the cause for these types of crimes when there is already another backstory here. A "troubled childhood"? Is it too important to blame video games than to realize that (with the most likely scenario) the troubled childhood came first, and then the parents failed in their duty by allowing a troubled kid to play this game? Granted the article doesn't state whether or not the parents bought this (now adult) game for him, or whether he bought it and played it without their knowledge. However, at the same time let's consider the fact that GTA has not had a portion of the game where the player needs to saw someone's neck with a knife while asleep, or something similar. If anything, the closest game to come to that description would be the True Crime series, the main difference being you play as a police officer instead of a criminal. (Granted I prefer playing as an officer.)

Your goals may be admirable (after all, I don't mind protecting kids from content they shouldn't see, but that's up to a parent to decide), but your actions completely undermine everything you try to do because you redicule and marginalize the people that ultimately descide the game industry's fate.
