Young Girl Dies after Teens re-act "Mortal Kombat"

Why when I read this again did I think of "finish him"...

I was thinking it, and hoping it wasn't going to be a story about some kids trying to rip another kid's spine out or something :x

I have to agree - the story sounds more like wrestling to me. They probably just had MK laying around somewhere. Most kids wrestle, but usually know when they're goin too far.

Young Girl Dies after idiotic Teens kick, punch and throw her. "Mortal Kombat" used as scapegoat.

Violent video games should be banned from use by children, like tobacco. They should just play Katamari.

Both were charged as adults in the case.

How can they justify trying them as adults? I can't think of a less adult circumstance. If anything they should psychologically evaluated if they can stand trial as a youth.

Your right, there is nothing that really says it was "Mortal Combat", the media always need something to blame..That sounds more like wrestling...

Jax? Like that move where he slams you right to left, left to right, etc.? Am I a nerd? Yes I am.

Guys, this isn't the media just picking out a game and running with it, the two idiot teens said they were imitating 'Mortal Kombat'. Chances are, they are just looking for a way to get off for killing their half-sister.

Hit the nail on the head!

And it's a problem that is compounded by the "I will take no responsbility" attitude

What kind of moron kicks his 7yr old sister hard enough to kill her?

People will blame this on video games, but someone this dumb will find a way to show their intellegence to the world one way or another, video games or not.

In the UK MK is an 18 rated game. I think the US has a similar rating system. Even if they don't the parents should be aware of what their children are playing and accordingly allow them to play or view such material base on the rating.

The parents will never be blamed though.

We has an issue near my house a while ago where a 13 year old boy was joyriding at 3am and crashed and died, the parents blamed the council for allowing them to live in an are where there child was able to meet other children who were on the wrong side of the rails, all of the local papers reported this but not on questioned the parents not knowing where there child was at 3am.

oh comeon, 16 and 17, don't tell me they didn't know that kicking and body slamming a young girl could really hurt her. They were old enough to realize the consequences of what they were doing, hence they are old enough to be tried as such

In other breaking news:

A community is in shock today as many of their local children have collided with cars around the local streets, while trying to manoeuvre around them as they crossed the roads. "I don't understand it", said the Rev. M.T. Head, "Last week I bought each of the boys a copy of Frogger, to show them that God loves them at this sometimes lonely time of year. I thought it was a classic retro game that would protect them from clutches of the demon-spawn of modern violent gaming. I used to play it myself on my own Saga Satan. Er, I mean, Saturn.

This morning, it was like Armageddon had come early. The streets were awash with the blood of those poor little boys -- all victims of Beelzebub, I tell you, Beelzebub! He walks among us. His evil cloaking the community..." At this point, the Rev. broke into a mumbling wreck and we were unable to continue recording his words.

One local, who declined to be named, added "They're mine. All mine. See how the minions fall before me...."
