[DT] Teen Kills Sister Acting Out Mortal Kombat, Gets Suspended Sentence - Page 17

In these acts of human stupidity the only good we can take out of it is that whoever got killed was no longer able to pass on possibly defective genes. I know its somewhat cold but thats how evolution works, and has worked for millions of years. Imagine if we had a gene that gave us an uncontrollable urge to kill our offspring, if that gene stayed in the gene pool we would probably be extinct right now. Fortunately we have a system in place that weeds out these defective genes. When those parents kill their offspring, who are also carrying the gene, those offspring don't survive to carry on the gene, and it dies out.



Thats basically what I think about when I see reports of videogame violence. Its not that video games cause the violence, its more that they bring out the mental unbalance, which is many cases is hereditary. When these people are locked up or die or are put to death I can only hope that by removing themselves from the genepool they are improving the human race.
Humans as a species are gradually getting stupider, slower, and just worse overall.

And its all thanks to modern medicine!

That's a very sad news. And Mortal Combat part is not serious i think. If it was, court should have concluded they didnt have mental health and simply take both to a mental clinic.

And it was really interesting to read comments on the topic. Especially arguments on death sentence. If it worked, USA must have been the country with lowest crime rate. But we all know it has highest. You are arguing wrong thing, arguing "effect" rather than "cause". Punishment can only be an "effect" of a bad action. I'm sure bankrobbers, burglars or some killers don't do it because they know that "they won't be sentenced to death". Btw I like "simple American reasoning", it's humour on most occasions, but not this one, i only felt sad for that little girl.

A teen and her boyfriend from Johnstown, Colorado claimed that they were acting out the video game Mortal Kombat when they kicked, karate chopped, and body slammed 7-year-old Zoe Garcia.
Which character were they mimicking, anyway? I don't remember a character with a 'kick + karate chop + body slam' combo. Hmm...

Ok I don't think they did this on purpose because I've body slammed my niece many times on a bed. She actually thinks thats fun but maybe they were just having fun and it got out of hand. Didn't know a karate chop was lethal.

We aren't getting stupider per say, its just that the stupid people are surviving better. And its not just that either, they are reproducing like rabbits. I've never understood why low income couple, who have trouble just supporting themselves, have more than 5 kids!


So its not that we're getting stupider, its just that the stupid people are becoming more numerous. Eventually I wouldn't be surprised if we get to the point where we're two distinct species!



Modern medicine is ruining everything, not only is it keeping those stupid people alive, its weakening us. I don't take any pills of any kind except for a tylenol or an asprin for really bad headaches. I don't use any kind of anti-bacterial soap and I have food in my room that I don't even remember eating, yet I can't remember the last time I was seriously ill! Compare that to my cousin who takes at least 2 tylenol extra strength a day, uses all kinds of antibacterial lotions and other medicine, and keeps her room clean. She gets sick almost weekly!

Hey! I actually take several prescription medicines, zoloft -antidepressant, strattera - ADD, nexium - acid reflux/EE, cingular & allegra - allergies, as well as a multi-vitamin pill.

Despite all this, I never get sick. And I mean never.

you dont need any of those prescription pills.

The one keeping you from being sick is the multi-vitamin.

-stop eating bad food and you wont have acid reflux.

-I don't know why you're depressed but from what I've seen, and the people I've met... I would say about 85% of people are depressed for reasons that they can fix. and its not some kind of genetic "chemical imbalance" that the drug companies would have you believe.

-allergies... meh, maybe.

-and as for the ADD?
I say embrace it man! ADD is the reason I'm even remotely creative. ADD makes me who I is.
just write down lists for everything man... thats what I do.

Just like nathris, I only take tylenol occasionally if I sprain something or have an awful headache, and I don't think I've been sick or even had a cold in years.

If you look up the autopsy report, she had serious injuries including server spinal and head trauma. A broken wrist and 20+ bruises(not the little ones you get by bumping you leg on your bed) When she was taken into the hospital, she was admitted for not BREATHING. The two 17 year olds first though she was faking so they put an egg in her throat(Who the hell does that )

WOW. Just WOW to some of the comments lol. Some people really need to see the bigger picture. If the world was left to some of you it would be in the dust now .

Capital punishment....yeah lets go backwards. As said before..and I think you will find it was Ghandi who said it. The only man who has made anysense that I know of .

''An eye for an eye will make the world go blind'' How true that is.

The Capital punishment is not about justice and you bloody know it. Its about REVENGE pure and simple.

If anyone says its ''Justice''....well you have an awefully warped sense of justice.

Killing is killing. I dont see how there is justice in killing someone, regardless of what they did. Yeah sure put them in jail and let them rot...dont have a problem with that.

If we all had the Capital punishment then what next...these things always progress and get worse, not better.

If you want to punish someone then you lower there standard of life...such as a Cell and no entertainment and let them live with themselves. Killing them is only going to serve as making a martre of them and giving them an easy way out.

Im all for punishment...just not the whole Capital punishment system. Doesnt get you anywhere, it just serves to make you feel better.

Also there is a major and I mean MAJOR flaw with the death sentance. If you were wrongly convicted of a crime and its does happen people...how would you feel when you are facing the chair knowing you are innocent, it would feel fairly crap I assure you. However if a wrongly convicted person gets put into a prison then they atleast have a good chance of appealing there crime or if they cant they have a hope of getting out one day rather than being fried.

Its all well and good saying the death penalty is good but put yourself in the ''Convicted'' persons shoes. Just imagine you were innocent. You have a family and kids and a life to lead, but no because some dude got it wrong your family get to see you fry rather than being in prison and atleast having a chance.

I can then see your flipside to this. What if a truly nasty person gets released and will commit crime again. Well sorry but there is no perfect system. However we are ALL yes ALL capable of hideous things !. Thats FACT people. Everyone has there breaking point. So because we can ALL do terrible things then should we all just step into the chair now and save some time ?

You cannot be one sided about these things.

Sure there are some really evil people out there that we could all do without. However I still cant see how it justifies bumping everyone off.

Its a pitty the Human race is ALWAYS so hell bent on revenge and war. If we ever put as much effort as we have with conflict into Peace then we may be somewhere a whole lot different.

I do sometimes pitty us as a race. We have so many beautiful things in this world and more in the future. However we ignore it and destroy it for greed and self gratification.

I hope there will be a day when we can change human nature or atleast get a new way of thinking. If we carry on as we are then we WILL destory ourselves.

You watch. Pray that World War doesnt come.

Because boys and girls, ladies and gentleman....there wont be anything left. The world is so unstable and full of FEAR thanks to our supposed leaders. I hope none of you think that another World War will involve troops and just bombs. We will just end up nuking eachother.

You may think the last bit is off topic...however its not. This kind of thing easily stems off FEAR,Revenge, Supposed justice.

Its a cycle that only leads to sadness and misery.
