It's absurd for you to claim the parents might have got what they 'had coming' because they banned a stupid video game. The kid was obviously insane, so perhaps they knew that and wanted to protect him.
Exactly, while we do not have all the facts, they clearly prove in the least he is a dangerous individual. You cannot deny that, so maybe that is why his parents tried to restrict his actions? Some of you really need to get a grip. A kid shoots his parents, proving he is violent, and you say that maybe his parents were wrong for removing potential violent influences from him. What the hell? Maybe they were scared because they lived (yet loved) someone who showed signs of being off the scale.
I have nothing against violent games, I play them all the time, including all halo games (in fact, my favourite xbox series is the gears series). But I'm not crazy, and I don't shoot people. But if I was, I hope to god my parents would try to prevent me from ruining my life like this freak did.
