Ok, I read the headline and I thought 'sexual abuse' and was like, oh well, you shouldnt sexually abuse your kids or this wouldn't have happened. But video games? I dont care that he's 14, try this piece of crap as an adult and kill him. A sledgehammer, thats about as personal as a killing can get. Who the hell does he think he is to kill someone, especially his father and in this manner. He can fry.

and yet some people claim that violent video games have no effect on the person playing them!!!!!!!!!!!
It only struck me after the fourth of my five expeditions that I had never seen a conflict either between two children or between a child and an adult. Not only did the children not hit one another, they did not even argue. They obeyed their elders instantly and cheerfully, and often carried babies around with them while playing or helping with the work.
Where were the "terrible twos"? Where were the tantrums, the struggle to "get their own way," the selfishness, the destructiveness and carelessness of their own safety that we call normal? Where was the nagging, the discipline, the "boundaries" needed to curb their contrariness? Where, indeed, was the adversarial relationship we take for granted between parent and child? Where was the blaming, the punishing, or for that matter, where was any sign of permissiveness?
