Videogames are on trial yet again in the US, as the family of a man killed by teenagers who shot at passing cars on a freeway file a lawsuit against Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two.
The two teenagers – William and Joshua Buckner, 16 and 14 years old, respectively – opened fire on vehicles on the Interstate 40 highway in Tennessee with a .22 calibre rifle, killing one person and injuring another severely.
They told the police who arrested them that they were bored, and decided to mimick their favourite videogame, Grand Theft Auto.
Gta worked as a stress reliever for me, but looks like it’s inspireing some kids to shoot REAL people. Something is really wrong in the US. It’s probably the genes. Fuckin weirdos!
