TV News Has Video Report on Sentencing of Teen Halo 3 Killer

June 17, 2009 -

Cleveland's Fox 8 has a video report (not embeddable, unfortunately) - including courtroom footage - on yesterday's sentencing of Daniel Petric.

The 17-year-old was sentenced by Judge James Burge from 23 years to life in prison for the 2007 murder of his mother and wounding of his father. The incident was apparently sparked over the parents refusal to permit their son to play Halo 3.

The Judge thought the killer thought that if he killed his parents they'd just respawn or something.

The judge did something very stupid. He opened the door really really wide for an appeal. This...boy/man/retard will end up going to a mental institution or getting off because of the judges *misjudgement.

Re: TV News Has Video Report on Sentencing of Teen Halo 3 ...

 Yeah I'm still not getting how a Judge can basically write in the judgement that he feels the defendant was not aware of the consequences of his actions but didn't factor mental state into the sentancing at all.

Re: TV News Has Video Report on Sentencing of Teen Halo 3 ...

But didn't they say the judge agreed with the killer when he said the video game made him do it???

Re: TV News Has Video Report on Sentencing of Teen Halo 3 ...

Justice is served. 23 to life *nods* For murdering your family, I would just say life. No parole. No anything.

Glad no one was fooled by the "video games made me do it" excuse.

No one other than the Judge who used it as a factor in determinng sentence.

MaskedPixelanteDude was at the center of a pretty serious plagiarism scandal back in 2011, and it was widely known he ripped off other musical pieces well before that.12/27/2014 - 9:33am
Kajex@Masked Right, because his work actually composing music for several Metroid games necessitated plagiarism.12/27/2014 - 9:04am
MaskedPixelanteI can't believe Kenji Yamamoto got another job. Then again, his job on Smash was "musical arrangment", so copying other people's work is right up his alley.12/26/2014 - 9:31pm

MaskedPixelanteI like Nintendo as much as the next person, they're pretty much the only company putting out the games I want to play, but that was pretty embarassing to have NNID go down due to overuse.12/25/2014 - 4:35pm
