The latest in the insanely popular Call of Duty series, Black Ops – which releases tomorrow – is quite probably the most anticipated game of the year. Some people are just so damned eager to shoot some virtual guns that they took up real arms – and stole the game.
Two men, armed with semi-automatic held up a GameStop in the Festival at Bel Air shopping center in Harford County, Maryland – seemingly with the aim to procure themselves some Call of Duty.
This is a story all about how
Some boxes got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute just sit right there
And tell you how some dudes robbed a shop in mall called Bel-Air
The armed robbers stole cash, consoles, and about 100 copies of the soon to be released Call of Duty: Black Ops. they escaped in a white minivan, and have yet to be apprehended. Thankfully, nobody was hurt during the incident. Presumably they’ll try flog those copies on eBay or craigslist – although no local listings have turned up anything yet.
Couldn’t wait just a few days, guys?

The irony of it all, prolly learnt and got inspired from Call of Duty in the first place…to steal some more Call of Duty.

If they were inspired by Call of Duty, then they wouldn’t have gone when the store was closing. They would have walked in with their machine guns and shot everything in sight, ALA “No Russian”… then gone on to steal the games.

Oh this is going to get those politicians on they’re high horses again “Games make you violent and they teach children to steal, rape, murder and sacrifice babies to SATA blah blah blah…” the irony is that when they catch these guys they will prob have a criminal record as long as they’re for arms in written in fine print but that will all be blamed on the games because its an easy way to get votes from the uneducated parents and ppl who who likes to shift the blame on something else other then they’re self neglect to raise they’re children properly. :angry:

*Before the robbery
Robber: I always say the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence.
Malema : Eish!
Robber: Simply because you donâ€™t have evidence that something does exist does not mean you have evidence of something that doesnâ€™t exist.
Robber: What country are you from?
Robber: E-Africa ainâ€™t no country I ever heard of! They speak English in â€˜E-Afrikaâ€™?
Robber: English, motherf*****! Do you speak it?
Malema: Yes cretation!
Robber: So you understand the words Iâ€™m saying to you!
Malema: Yes cretation!
Robber: Well, what Iâ€™m saying is that there are known knowns and that there are known unknowns. But there are also unknown unknowns; things we donâ€™t know that we donâ€™t know.
Robber: Say what again! Say what again! I dare you! I double dare you, motherf*****! Say what one more time
