Three Arrested at Shinboku-con 2011

May 2, 2011 -

Three men attending Shinboku-con 2011 in Westlake, Ohio this weekend ended their attendance to the three-day anime/video game/culture event by going to jail. Police arrested two attendees of the anime and video game conference at about 7:15 p.m. on April 30. The two men, a 27-year-old Cleveland resident and a 21-year-old Canal Fulton man, got into an argument over how the younger gentleman was playing an undisclosed video game. The younger man was so agitated by the critique that he punched the other man in the mouth an hour after the initial argument. Police arrested the younger man for assault. The older man, proving just how stupid he is, decided to spit on an officer. Both men were released later that evening.

On the same day police returned to the Holiday Inn where the event was being held for another call. At around 8 p.m. an 18-year-old Lorain man started damaging hotel property. Coincidently, the suspect turned out to be the brother of the 27-year-old Cleveland man who was arrested earlier in the evening for spitting on an officer. The 18-year-old had left the hotel when police arrived, but was arrested later in the parking lot of the nearby Board of Education. He and a friend were waiting there while another 22-year-old man checked to see what happened to his brother. Officers arrested the 18-year-old for criminal damaging and underage consumption of alcohol. They also arrested the 18-year-old friend for underage consumption. Both were later released.

Maybe a few less morons will attend next year’s Shinboku-con. In case you did not know, Shinboku-con is an annual event that features video games, anime, card and board games, tournaments, cosplay, exhibitors, and more.

Anime Central in Chicago is one of the largest conventions in the midwest. The festivities technically start on Friday, but over the past few years, it's been getting so big that the accidents and incidents have been starting Thursday night and going constantly the whole weekend through.

With the frequency of conventions of all kind, you need a network of people just to keep up with all of the crazy crap that happened over somes tupid stuff that ended with some people getting dragged away in cuffs or on a stretcher.

Hell, I once went to a con where a girl in the room next to me got alcohol poisoning. Turns out she was underaged and the con didn't come back for another year at that hotel.

Oh, it could be worse. You could live in the same state as Jack Thompson. *sigh*

You mean the man who would have these events banned throughout the country by selling the BS that things like these are normal at such events which is why they ever hire security?

Re: Three Arrested at Shinboku-con 2011

Yes. In my state. Disbarred mind you, but still in my state. Can anyone's state beat that? ;)

james_fudgeThat's the clean install, for anyone asking07/29/2015 - 9:23am
TechnogeekAlso, it's the upgrade that's available for installation now. You might need to forcibly initiate the Windows Update process before it'll start downloading, though. (If there's a C:\$Windows.~BT folder on your computer, then you're in luck.)07/29/2015 - 8:46am
TechnogeekAdmittedly there's more room to push for an advertiser boycott when you get into opinion content versus pure news, but keep in mind that reviews are opinion content as well.07/29/2015 - 8:46am
TechnogeekMatts: There's a difference between "this person regularly says extremely terrible stuff" and "I don't like the phrasing used in this one specific editorial".07/29/2015 - 8:45am
MattsworknameWait, is that for the upgrade or the clean install only? cause I was gonna do the upgrade07/29/2015 - 8:32am

Mattsworknameargue that it's wrong, but then please admit it's wrong on ALL Fronts07/29/2015 - 2:06am
MattsworknameTechnoGeek: It's actually NOT, but it is a method used all across the specturm. See Rush limbaugh, MSNBC, Shawn hannity, etc etc, how many compagns have been brought up to try and shut them down by going after there advertisers. It's fine if you wanna07/29/2015 - 2:05am
Mattsworknamediscussed, while not what I liked and not the methods I wanted to see used, were , in a sense, the effort of thsoe game consuming masses to hold what they felt was supposed to be there press accountable for what many of them felt was Betrayal07/29/2015 - 2:03am
MattsworknameAs we say, the gamers are dead article set of a firestorm among the game consuming populace, who, ideally, were the intended audiance for sites like Kotaku, Polygon, Et all. As such, the turn about on them and the attacking of them, via the metods07/29/2015 - 2:03am
MattsworknameAndrew: Thats kind fo the issue at hand, Accountable is a matter of context. For a media group, it means accountable to its reader. to a goverment, to it's voters and tax payer, to a company, to it's share holders.07/29/2015 - 2:02am
Andrew EisenAnd again, you keep saying "accountable." What exactly does that mean? How is Gamasutra not accounting for the editorial it published?07/28/2015 - 11:47pm
Andrew EisenMatt - I disagree with your 9:12 and 9:16 comment. There are myriad ways to address content you don't like. And they're far easier to execute in the online space.07/28/2015 - 11:47pm
Andrew EisenMatt - Banning in the legal sense? Not that I'm aware but there have certainly been groups of gamers who have worked towards getting content they don't like removed.07/28/2015 - 11:45pm
DanJAlexander's editorial was and continues to be grossly misrepresented by her opponents. And if you don't like a site, you stop reading it - same as not watching a tv show. They get your first click, but not your second.07/28/2015 - 11:40pm
TechnogeekYes, because actively trying to convince advertisers to influence the editorial content of media is a perfectly acceptable thing to do, especially for a movement that's ostensibly about journalistic ethics.07/28/2015 - 11:02pm
