Even Minecraft Is Being Blamed For Violent Children Now
Oh, you thought you had heard everything hadn’t you. I mean, we’ve all had to endure the countless witch-hunts against games when one idiot who probably never got enough hugs from his mother decides to shoot up a school. Hell, he had an arsenal NATO would be proud of hiding in his closet for a year, but no it was the one game of Call of Duty that threw him over the edge. Or, in this case, Minecraft.
A child (literally, the kid couldn’t even see over the bench in the court room apparently) was sentenced to home confinement after he decided to bring along his father’s handgun, some ammo and a kitchen knife to school. This kid was six years old, and according to his father he was acting out the main character from Minecraft. Yes, that one with the blood stained pickaxe and demon sheep companion. This all seems logical now.

“They use hammers to dig and knives and guns to protect themselves from zombies.”
Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but I’ve never used a gun in Minecraft. Ever. Hell, the game is rated 10+ by the ESRB and probably the same by out PEGI, so how the hell is digging and fending off rather cute creepers poses a kid to bring a gun to school.
Worse still, how does his father get off claiming that the game gave him the idea to commit such a dangerous act. How about looking at why it was so easy for a pre-schooler to obtain a weapon that has the potential to do real harm to himself and others. Seems like the father had an answer for this too, claiming that the gun was never dangerous, as the firing pin had been removed.
Ah well as long as that is the case, then why don’t we award this guy the fucking father of the month award. Your six-year-old son just appeared in court because he found your weapon and took it in for a little show and tell.
But hey, that cartoonish game is totally the bad guy in this story. Please, sterilize yourself.
