Stolen 360 Leads to Execution of Three Brothers

August 18, 2010 -

The small Louisiana town of Keithville, located in the northwest corner of the state near the Texas border, is the location of a grisly murder scene that started with a stolen Xbox 360 and ended with the death of three brothers late Monday night.

Jerimiah (20), Jarquis (18) and Jean (13) Adams were all found shot to death in a car, victims of thirty-three year old alleged gunman Marcus Donté Reed (pictured). The Shreveport Times reports that Reed lay in wait for the brothers and opened fire on the car with an assault rifle because he thought at least one of the Adams trio was responsible for stealing Reed's Xbox 360 from his girlfriend’s home on Monday.

The house of Reed’s lady friend was described as a local hangout and it was reported that the Adams boys may have been at the house on that day, though Sheriff Steve Prator said,” We don't have any indication they were actually in the house that night,” adding, “I'm not sure the extent of the relationship they had.”

Reed had a previous felony conviction in 2007 for illegal use of a weapon/dangerous instrument following a shootout he had with another vehicle. At that time, Reed was armed with an assault rifle with “one round in the chamber and 35 in the magazine.”

Prator added, “There are some things all of the patrol cars in the world can't prevent. The only thing that could have prevented this from happening is (him) not being born.”

That is fricken messed up!

"Assault rifle"?  Nice try, gun control weasels.  An SKS is a semiautomatic rifle.  Assault rifles must, by definition, be capable of automatic fire.  And while I haven't seen any pictures of the actual gun he used, I'm very skeptical that it had any of the cosmetic features that would make it an "assault weapon" under that absurd, and rightly expired law.  I'm getting sick and tired of the media constantly obfuscating this issue with unclear and alarmist terminology.

Re: Stolen 360 Leads to Execution of Three Brothers

I'm getting sick and tired of gun nuts thinking that terminology matters.  Most people who read these articles (or write them for that matter) could barely describe the difference between a pistol and a rifle, much less get into the finer details.

No need to get worked up.  The press is not conspiring with gun control weasels. They just don't know.

"victims of thirty-three year old alleged". Wow. So he's alledgedly the shooter, yet they were his victims?

"The only thing that could have prevented this from happening is (him) not being born." So this guy is guilty until proven innocent + society is 100% incapable of preventing murders if the murderer is alive. The fact he had a gun don't factor in, nor (bad) luck and timing, etc. Great Sheriff there...

That's what I love about elected people. Their job isn't to do well what their job title seems to indicate, but rather to be elected and re-elected. That's their primary purpose.

IronPatriotDocMelonHead, do you also acknowledge that the gamergate accusations of bad "ethics in journalism" against them have been proven false? Thus making gamergate's "journalism ethics" claim about them a sham and a fraud?05/29/2015 - 1:53pm
IronPatriotDocMelonhead, you "acknowledge that Wu, Quinn, and Sarkeesian, been harassed way before the creation of the hashtag" but do you acknowledge that gamergate is WRONG to carry out the massive campaign of harassment against them?05/29/2015 - 1:50pm
IronPatriotWonderkarp, it is good to hear you say that gamergate's massive harassment campaign is wrong. That is a long way from when all you would condemn them for is being "misguided and unfocused"05/29/2015 - 1:45pm
WonderkarpSo what are we all playing this weekend? I'm planning on splitting it between Splatoon and Witcher 3. Though I might stream Drakengard 3. I try to stream Games other people arent playing.05/29/2015 - 1:45pm
IronPatriotDocMelonhead, I do not think it is fair to blame the fraud of gamergate on conservatives just because some far-right, anti-feminist 4channers used harassment as a tool against women. Plenty of conservatives are just as appalled at gamergate as most people05/29/2015 - 1:30pm
IronPatriotThanks, James, for speaking out against the personal attacks. It will be good to see factual discussion.05/29/2015 - 1:25pm
Matthew Wilsonhttps://twitter.com/austin_walker/status/604278507632386048 giantbomb got a new hire this will be interesting. I never heard of him.05/29/2015 - 1:17pm
Wonderkarpdespite my feelings for Sarkeesians work, nobody deserves the kind of crap hurled at her.05/29/2015 - 12:52pm
Wonderkarpment there was plenty of Greninja to go around. and I know my brother get his Ness.05/29/2015 - 12:51pm
Wonderkarpso I went Amiibo shopping today. Scored Greninja, Wario, Pacman, Charizard, and the two Inklings. From what I understand, Target is already sold out of Jigglypuff and its once again a mad house. TRU had a great "Buy only 1 of each character" Rule that05/29/2015 - 12:50pm
DocMelonheadHell, I even have an account at BoingBoing, and even they are Anti-GamerGate.05/29/2015 - 12:49pm
Andrew EisenEZK - There's also this Portal short film making the rounds. Some laudable production value but personally I think it's absolutely terrible as a short. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Z32T7tpgOdk05/29/2015 - 12:48pm
james_fudgeno apologies needed. Let's just all try to avoid the personal attacks05/29/2015 - 12:43pm
DocMelonheadI also do acknowledge that Wu, Quinn, and Sarkeesian, been harassed way before the creation of the hashtag, and may as well be harassed after the hashtag been dead; This will go on as long as Cyberbullying remains to be a thing.05/29/2015 - 12:43pm
WonderkarpI'm not going to talk about GamerGate much, if at all, except for maybe "Current Happenings" as I said down below. Things I can verify. Vince McMahon himself said Twitters the new Word of Mouth05/29/2015 - 12:43pm
DocMelonheadAnd Yes, I agree that GamerGate's another cover for the ongoing Cultural Warfare between the Conservatives and the progressives.05/29/2015 - 12:40pm
DocMelonheadstill, I should one again apologized for the personal attack on IP, it's just that it's possible to sympothize with bigots regardless of their actions.05/29/2015 - 12:38pm
WonderkarpI am no longer going to engage in any "Heated Arguements". Its stupid. Just discussion. I can easily quote Robert Downey Jr from Tropic Thunder on my actions yesterday, but I wont. again, I apologize. 05/29/2015 - 12:35pm
WonderkarpFudge, Mecha, I need to apologize for my behavior yesterday. It was childish, pathetic, stupid, and petty. I'd like to blame it on lack of sleep but yeah. I'm not. I was an [SELF REDACTED].05/29/2015 - 12:34pm
Wonderkarpthe current cartoon is awesome. I'm loving it alot.05/29/2015 - 12:32pm
