i couldnt really stomach reading this.. I just can't comprehend why somebody of his age would do that to a young child.. unless he was on drugs or just insane..

That is shocking 8l
The article doesn't give the game as a reason for the stabbing, only that he was stabbed while playing it, But either way, what drives a man to do that to a child?!

I agree with Tea. Wtf was the point of stabbing the kid unless he was on drugs? Or maybe he's insane like dragon said. The article didn't seem to make a good case for saying that the kid was stabbed because of a video game, imo... WTF

What she said. It was never directly said in the article that the game was the cause of the murder, though it's heavily implied (I dunno, maybe for media sensation or something). Still doesn't reduce the gravity of his actions though.

Article doesn't state anywhere that the killer was under the influence of any substance. All we have to go on is "He doesn't act right in the streets". Not a good thing to leave your child/cousin/relative alone with people like that.

I wish the article (or any video game violence article for that matter) would disclose more detail than "he was killed over a video game". What happened? Did he just get stabbed in front of the game and people are making assumptions? Did the 9-year old kick his ass at Tony Hawk and got stabbed for revenge? One can only wonder.

The stabbing of a 9-year old child is sickening. Some people would go to no limit to overpower disadvantaged human beings in attempts to compensate for their inferior complexes.

Rest in peace.

Absolutely disgusting. What could drive someone to stab a child? ffff
If he really wasn't under the influence of drugs then that's one sick bastard.

I think we now have a somewhat convincing reason..
Mentally disturbed man accused of killing 9-year-old boy feared he would go ballistic, sister says

Doesn't make what he did ok by any reason, but would explain a bit.

As I thought. It had absolutely nothing to do with video games.

IMO could have been avoided if he had gotten a 360 instead of a PS3.
