Banned from gaming because they nuked a cat?

Nuke the cat?

Two idiots in Canada (yup not the USA this time) have been banned from playing violent video games for a year by a judge.

Apparently for no real reason they decided to break into a friends house, cause $25 000 worth of damage and then nuke the family cat to death.

For this they get banned from playing video games and have been forced to pay a $500 insurance premium and do 100 hours of community service.

I for one don’t think the punishment is nearly harsh enough and is yet another example of gaming being blamed for something it has obviously nothing to do with.

[On a side note it was disturbingly easy to find a picture of a cat in a microwave]

    wtf…some peoples kids. i agree that that is not nearly harsh enough. We all know who’s really to blame here, its Slipknot not gaming… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Scratchy

    That is all sorts of wrong. Cut their hands off, don’t ban gaming

  • abe

    How is that punishment going to teach them a lesson?
    The whole point in punishment is to make the person/people not want to commit the crime again.
    I say 1yr in jail and a $20 000 fine!

  • Ban Slipknot! lol ๐Ÿ˜› no someone should sue the microwave companies no where does it say “Do Not Place Cute Furry Animals In Microwave”

  • wtf is wrong with these kids?

  • hilt_ctn

    lol, how do you do $25 000(around R200 000) worth of damage!? did those guys let loose a bunch of wild cattle!? I reckon they is some rich city folk, who have nothing better to do then destroy shit

  • They must be utterly retarded as well.

  • Lydon

    The poor cat. It pains me to think how traumatic a death that must have been.

  • Can someone tell me which game exactly has the kitty microwave sim minigame?
