Is it possible that by spending the last few years debating the supposed detrimental effects of mature video games like Manhunt 2 or GTA on our youth, we’ve managed to overlook the real culprit?
According to the Associated Press, a 10-year-old boy was sent to juvenile hall for robbing a younger schoolmate of his Pokémon trading cards at gun point. According to police, the fourth grader was holding an Airsoft gun to the 6-year-old’s head while he robbed him.
AE: Thankfully, no one was hurt in this case. The 10-year-old has been suspended and school officials are considering expulsion.
