Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After Playing GTA

December 5, 2008 -

It's so over-the-top awful that it almost sounds like a parody headline, but that's the report on AZfamily.com.

Apparently a pair of unsupervised boys, six and seven years-old, stoned a kitten and then strung it up following a Grand Theft Auto session. They reportedly used the controller cable in lieu of a rope.

The incident occurred in late October in Mesa, Arizona, but details are just beginning to emerge. Here's more from the AZfamily.com coverage:

The investigation began [when] deputies went to the neighborhood of one of the two boys... and found the kitten hanging by its neck from a backyard tree. The boys had apparently used a wire from the video game controller they were playing, Grand Theft Auto, to hoist up the kitten. The animal's head had been injured by blows from a rock.

[Maricopa County Sheriff Joe] Arpaio questions why these young children were allowed to play such a violent video game.

“This game allows players to kill cops and rape women,” Arpaio says. “It’s little wonder why they perpetrated such violence against that little animal.”

The boys are too young to prosecute under Arizona law and, for some reason, don't meet the guidelines for intervention by child protective services.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After ...

I’m sure some people will use this as an argument against games like grand theft auto but it’s clearly the parents fault. Children that age shouldn’t have any games that are clearly for adults, and if they are that evil to murder their cat then the parents must have brought them up badly. There are plenty of free ‘flash animated’ online games that show murder in much gruesome ways then GTA, if any games are to be singled out as the problems it’s those ones since anyone of any age can have easy access to them.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

I'm all for freedom of ttnet vitamin speech and allowing rent a car game makers to put whatever they want in games, but there's one thing about this app that has me scratching my head.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but from araç kiralama the previous article araba kiralama on this I gathered that players can use Google maps in-game to find the other (real-life?) dealers in their area.  If this is the case, has travesti anyone considered what's stopping someone from using this app to actually move drugs between hands for reals?

But majority araba kiralama of their outrage araç kiralama stems from what it could DO TO children, not the content itself.  Talk to one of these people and you'll find they don't think any books kiralık araba should be banned from children.  Mention American Psycho and they talk about kiralık araç the redeeming value of using imagination to construct a story.  Reading, no matter what the content, is largely viewed as a consequenceless activity for people of any age.  The reason why I mention American Psycho is because of the content itself.  Gaming never has and likely never will have any scenes where someone has sex with a severed head.  Not gonna happen.  Yet despite this, they'll fight tooth and nail to protect their children from two boys kissing in Bully but whatever they read is harmless... yeah.

The entire arguement is kiralık oto based upon a social normality inflicted by luddites who can't figure out the controls for Halo so it's frightening and terrifying and obviously the cause of youth violence on the rise even though, in reality, it's in decline (which is actually a HUGE suprise given minibüs kiralama the economies status).  In  a perfect world, we would have parents that actually parent.  The idea of sales restrictions on media on oto kiralama any form to accomidate parental unwillingness to get involved with their child's life is the real problem to me.  Here I am, 32 years old, and being held up at a self-scan rent a car needing to show ID before I can buy a $10 M rated game all because Soccer Momthra can't be bothered to look at the crap Billy Genericallystupidson does in his free time.  It's too hard for her, so I have to suffer?

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

I dont recall any raping happening in GTA, for one thing. It would have gotten an AO rating if there was.

Secondly, the parents are infinitely more responsible for this tan any game is.

Third, how could these kids have gotten this idea from GTA. I never saw a kitten-hanging side mission.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

Oh for the love of god this is so ridicolous. I've seen video games get blamed for a lot of stupid shit but this will be hard to top. These kids were left unsupervised and the video game doesn't have anything to do with it. These kids need to be watched because this is the kind of behaviour that leads to the creation of serial killers.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

I just lost one of my kitties a few weeks ago and when I read this article I just about died here at work. I fail to see how these children and their parents do not merit any kind of punishment.

I believe the parents should get some punishment for this cruel act.

This sounds more like something that would happen after a long session of Viva Pinata.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

When my ex-girlfriends brother was a kid, he found a little kitten and dropped a rock on its head, killing it. He's a completely productive member of society; has 2 kids, a great house, and works for the fire department. He's miles away from being a sociopath. He was 7 years old at the time, as well.

So how does a child turn into an animal killer like that? Well, simply put, most kids that age don't really have a concept of death. If I remember correctly, most children don't really get that until they're somewhere between 8 and 10. If they're repeat offenders, that's when you've got to worry about them being sociopaths.

I'll bet good money they thought the kitten was just pretending to go all limp, and when they walked away the kitten would spring back to life and walk away. Poor little guys. :(

Still, kids that young shouldn't be playing GTA ferchristsakes. And jumping on the "Goddamn it there's no rape in these games" bandwagon.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

The two key things that psych-examiners look for when testing kids, or screening for sociapathic tendencies are: animal abuse or torture, and setting fires.

Most interesting one I saw, we knew the kid was lovely budding sociopath but you have to be able to site those activities in a report, after checking history and interviewing him and close family no one reported those actions. So we spoke to the mother again:

"Oh no, he's never done anything like that. But this one time, he set our kitten on fire."

CHECK PLEASE!

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

“This game allows players to kill cops and rape women,” Arpaio says. “It’s little wonder why they perpetrated such violence against that little animal.”

Excuse me. I would love to know what version of GTA they were playing. I have about played them all and have NOT seen where you can rape women. Must be drinking the same kool-aid as everyone else with that idea. On top of that I don't see where any versons of GTA would give them the idea to do that to a cat.

As far as why they were playing it and how they got it....*looks at the parents* ....I can only think of one way.

There are pigeons in GTA IV that you must exterminate, and if you do kill all 200 (no simple task) you get an award (albeit a pretty bad one).

Other than that I can't think of any time where you interact with animals in the GTA games.

So they threw rocks at a kitten and strung it up with a game controller.

Disturbing.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

Apparently, Jeff Dahmer, the BTK killer (who also hung kittens as well as dogs) and a host of other serial killers who tortured and mutilated animals WHEN THEY WERE KIDS must have been playing GTA too. Because we know sweet, innocent children just aren't born with any inclination of becoming murdering sociopaths. I think we can all agree that these little kids shouldn't have been playing GTA but to say that it influenced them to do it is beyond ignorant and asinine. Just another ostrich who wants to believe that there's no evil in the world, or at least where they live and that children aren't capable of such things.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

.... WTF?!

I'm not even sure what to say. How do you play GTA, than decide to kill a kitten?

I'm so speeachless at this and disgusted.

What do you say to something like this? O.o

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

"Child Protective Services were contacted by the Sheriff’s deputies but declined getting involved in the case saying the circumstances of the case were outside the criteria required to help the boys and their families. "

What more do the kids need to do wrong for Child Protective Services to get involved???

From the article: "Deputies say that language and cultural differences made it difficult to persuade both boys' parents of the urgent need for counseling but ultimately they have agreed to perhaps seek counseling for the boys."

And the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department finds a way to blame it on race.  Surprise!

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

**** I live in Mesa [I think that guy in the picture is Javier Soto from Chanel 3 news]...

Anyway, these kids should get locked up. I have a cat, and I don't see why anyone would want to do anything like that to an animal. These kids are sick, and I am tempted to wrap a ******* controller cord around their neck and choke them so they can see what it feels like. And I also need to say that I have played a lot of violent video games, but this made me sick.

And hopefully they will wind up in Arpaio's Jail, I have visited that place before and being there for a few days would straighten out the little ******.

Agree here too. Arpaio gets the results, even if he is he is too harsh for some people.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

wait... there are several problems in this article...

 

1) GTA is rated M for MATURE, not suitable for kids, comparable (if not higher) to a movie rating of R-18

2) You let the KIDS (6, 7 year olds) play this game!?

3) ... AND UNSUPERVISED!?

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

-he's popular cause he gets results when noone else has the balls to try anything.  

His results have been directly refuted. He is popular because he shows his face on tv a lot and upholds his brand as being "tough" on crime, which directly appeals to the ignorant populace that elects him and his lazy cohorts. His department has paid millions in taxpayer money for his incompetence.

-Most of the stuff thats been blamed on him was actually the results of his deputies, not him directly. Still, he's had some issues. But at the end of the day, he isn't called the toughest sherieff in america without cause.

Image branding. "Tough" does not mean effective, and people who rely on urban legends plus a trumped up fear of illegal immigrants who value "anything being done" even to the detriment of other services a Sherrifs dept. provides has kept him in office.

It proves the old adage right: "A lie repeated enough times will become truth."

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

America's most moronic sheireff is more like it, and as usual, its always "GTA IS TEH EVIL, BAN, BAN, BAN!"  Hell, like it was mentioned, I'm surprised our resident troll hasn't bypassed his IP ban and posted on this thread.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

@ Nightwing

 

As an az resident, you need to shut your mouth about Joe. The fact that the man has been elected as sherieff again this year is evidance of the fact while you may not approve of his Methods, the people of Arizona like the mans results. He's the only one in the state with the Balls to actually do something about Illegal immigration issues and prison overcrowding. I don't always agree with the mans methods, but you know what, he gets results.

When you come up with a way to reduce repeat crime by 45 percent, reduce prison costs by millions, and reduce human smuggling in the city of phoenix like he did, then you run for the job. TIll then, don't comment when your not qualified for the job.

 

As for this article, yeah, joe is out of touch on this subject, but then again, I dont' think this has happened before so I doubt he has any real knowledge about Ratigns, laws, or what have you. BUt by the end of the week, videogames will be the last thing he's worried about. Still, I"m kinda bother that he jumped to that reaction so quickly. Not like him to do that.

 

Anyway, Don't mouth off about joe. He's the only law enforcement offical in the city who had the balls to actually try and fix the problems rather then just talk about it. Don't always agree with his methods. but he gets the job done.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

How about the 43 million dollars he's lost the state of Arizona because of how he runs his prison?  Or the fact that there was no reduction in recidivsm under the Draconian management of the prison that he's instituted?

How bout that negligence, conspiracy and racketeering charge, how did that end up? Or the RECORD NUMBER of miscarriages in his prison?  Or the fact that he jails people who MAY WELL BE INNOCENT?  That's definitely illegal.

Just because he's elected doesn't make him the best for the job.  It just means enough people think he is.  So far, he's shown that he isn't.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

Funny that.  I should shut up because I don't know the Sheriff.  But it's ok for the Sheriff to spout off even though he clearly doesn't know the facts about what HE speaks about. 

So, a person in authority is given more leeway to make uninformed comments than then average citizen.

Fascinating.

I'll remember that the next time a politician or other authority figure makes an uninformed comment.  Especially if YOU make an opposing comment regarding them.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

Oh come on let's be fair to the sheriff.

Is it in his best interests to know whether the game has rape or not? Perhaps but clearly not in this case since the crimes were not sexual. The main points that the game is violent and not intended for young chilren are spot on though. I don't think it's fair to condemn him for believing a rumor that's been going on for way too long.

Although I don't think it's his job to find out why people commit crime but rather to prosecute those that do.

And since AZ law says these kids will face no charges who cares really. He's not the counselors in charge of helping the kids.

If he goes on to suggest a ban though that's another story, but he hasn't.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

First off, the Sheriff is a boob who needs to have his employment terminated for unethical conduct.  Lies and deceit are NOT honorable, ethical conduct of authority figures.  Lying about ANY media containing ANY particular content is still a lie.  Especially when it implies as part of an investigation.  Clearly, the Sheriff is too incompetent to hold his position.

Now, I'm going to make another comment, and everyone is going to be pissed at me, but I'll live with it.

In addition to the fact that these minors were left alone (here in Wilmington, NC, a child can be left home alone at age 8 for a couple of hours, BUT, one must take into account the relative maturity of the child.  This is per my local Social Services who said the law is under the Fire Code.  Again, you have to base it on the maturity of the child) BUT, the article indicates that the mother, at the least, is an illegal alien.  Now, how is she an illegal alien?  Did she enter illegally altogether?  Did she enter legally (temporarily) and either red tape prevented her from legally leaving in time or, she was unable for some reason to obtain more permanent status?  Or did she enter legally temporarily and intentionally stayed past her time to leave, making her illegal?  "Illegal" fits too many profiles.

But, if she intentionally was an illegal alien, then, clearly, she herself is a criminal.  Where in the report is it saying that she will be held accountable for HER crime?  Perhaps this is one way the kids are exposed to criminal activity.  Perhaps they've heard their mother or someone else talk about how good doing something bad should be considered.

I'm not going to judge her for letting her kids play the game, whichever GTA it was.  We don't know what kind of life they live in addition to what's been said so far.  We don't know about family friends, other family members, the neighborhood, the overall community, what they are exposed to in school (by either students and/or faculty) and so on.  Perhaps it wasn't the exposure to the video game that set them off but other exposures to other people that led them to be more aggressive and/or violent.

I've done horrible things to animals and people in my overall life.  Even when I was a kid.  Out of irrational anger, out of peer pressure, and other reasons that make little sense to us "rational" folk.

I've killed a tank full of goldfish by pouring dishwashing liquid in the tank.  Why?  Because I scratched my arm on the tank top (or so my mother said since I don't remember the event because it was when I was really little).  Make rational sense to me now?  Nope.  But at the time, I'm sure it made loads of sense to me.

I fed our cat to our dog.  WhY?  No clue.  I was with a "friend" then.  Definitely when I look back, he was no friend at all.  But at the time, seemed like a fun thing to do.  Doesn't now.  And no clue why it did then.

I struck out at friends and loved ones, even when all they did was make me mad with things they said or did.  Does it make sense that I did those things?  Not really.  I know I was taught early on that I couldn't go to adults and authority figures when I was upset by someone.  "Ignore them and they'll stop."  "Don't be a tattle tale."  "They are just trying to make you mad."  Heck, when I DID try to tell on someone, I felt like -I- was the one in trouble.  So what was the solution?  Take matters into my own hands.  Eventually, it got to the point of striking out for the most irrational reasons.  Or so it seems now.  Back then... hey, they stopped... for a little while.  Of course, overall, that didn't make things better.  But I didn't care about the overall picture.  Just the here and now.

Anyway, Sheriff is too incompetent to serve the public.  Time for him to retire.  Or better yet, time for him to be FIRED.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

Keeping in mind I know nothing about the sheriff other than what he said in this article...I think I'll judge a police officer on more than his knowledge of video games.....was his statements illinformed, out of place and unfortunatly take the attention away from the issues that other posters have brought up? Yes absolutelty. However to call for his resignation and/or termination over this incident is just a little....over reactive.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

I'm surprised the dog would even eat the cat it lives with, but then again I don't know the cat, the dog, or any preparations you might have made to the cat.

You know looking back, perhaps this was the reason my parents didn't get my brother and I any pets when we were little.

The only pet we've ever had was fish when we were both teenagers, but we've had to move and so had to give the fish away.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

Well, "fed" in the sense that the dog didn't like the cat and we put them in a room together and the dog killed it.  Not in a gory manner.  But she did bite down enough to suffocate the cat.  She didn't actually tear it limb from limb.  In fact, I don't recall any blood at all.

Re: Young Boys Hang Kitten with Game Controller Cord After

Everyone knows that kids can be very very cruel. To each other, and to animals. Kids can be ruthless, if spineless murderers when it comes to entire colonies of ants. They just plain don't care. But I swear, what these two kids have done will haunt them in the future. They are going to get nightmares, they are going to feel guilt, and rightfully so. 

 

However, still -- they need consoling, they need psychological - professional - support. Their parents should get this help for themselfes *and* their kids as soon as possible.

 

I cry for the poor cat who died that day, for absolutely nothing. Let's hope that these kids will realise - shockingly - what they have done. Let's hope it teaches them a lesson they do never forget, so that they will try to make up for it, maybe become people who want to protect nature and animals in the future.

Neo_DrKefkaI am a little disturbed that members of #GamerGate are supporting and not holding its same members accountable when they say remarks that are unacceptable!10/20/2014 - 11:39pm
Neo_DrKefkaSome #GamerGate people are defending @kingofpol many are however lashing out at him but if we held Sam Biddle accountable and Gawker so must we hold @kingofpol and #GamerGate10/20/2014 - 11:30pm
Neo_DrKefkaA big name in the Gamergate movement Kingofpol uses a offensive term about autistic people and in turn the entire GamerGate community lashes out at him. We do not need false leaders who think they can say anything https://twitter.com/Kingofpol10/20/2014 - 11:07pm
Papa MidnightMP, honestly, I'm struggling to make heads or tales of the events being outlined in that reddit thread. I've never heard of Siliconera before, either.10/20/2014 - 10:48pm

Neo_DrKefkaId love to see people come 2gether whether your 4 or against gamergate to gather 2gether and support an anti bullying charity and I would love to see a pro and anti gamegate debate on a neutral platform that promotes discussion and solutions10/20/2014 - 8:33pm
Neo_DrKefkaWhen someone was seriously hurt by a violent altercation. They have a prospective that people who have not had this experience lack. Bullying is a serious issue10/20/2014 - 8:30pm

quiknkoldAndrew : I dont accept any worded apology unless I can look the person in the eye when they say it. For me, he'd either have to make a video so I could read his bodylanguage, or actually do something. actions speak louder than words.10/20/2014 - 8:04pm
quiknkoldwell if they are looking for social pollution, Twitter is a great breeding ground for it. Its a breeding ground for deviance.10/20/2014 - 8:03pm
Andrew Eisenquiknkold - He had three tweets worth of apology the following day.10/20/2014 - 8:00pm
quiknkoldyou know, people keep saying Biddle's comment was sarcasm, but the thing is, Sarcasm doesnt translate well in Tweets. I took his words as really hateful, and unless I see an honest apology, I'm not going to be happy with him.10/20/2014 - 7:38pm
Matthew WilsonI doubt it will change much.10/20/2014 - 7:21pm
