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.
