French 5-Year-Old Didn't Stab Sister Over DS, After All

March 4, 2009 -

On Monday we reported on the story of a five-year-old French lad who allegedly stabbed his 10-year-old sister over a Nintendo DS.

We've now learned that the initial media reports were false and that it was the children's mother who actually stabbed her daughter. Long-time GamePolitics reader Soldat Louis offers the update:

In fact, the 10-year-old girl was stabbed, but NOT by her 5-years-old brother. She was stabbed by her mother ! And, of course, it wasn't because of a Nintendo DS.

According to what I read, the daughter was examined by a surgeon, who said that it was impossible that such a young boy could hurt someone so deeply. Then, the investigators talked to the children, and the daughter told them that she was stabbed by her mother, who finally confessed that she did it. She was apparently upset by the noise made by her children.

Soldat Louis reports that the best (French language) coverage of the incident comes from AFP.

Assaulting one child with a deadly weapon and blaming it on the other... Unbelievable. I hope she never has a chance to see either of them again. She doesnt deserve to be a parent in my opinion. Obviously her children don't deserve it either.

I take back anything I said defending that c**t.

I think what really angers me the most is that, I think, the mother made it look like the five year old did it. That is disgusting. I thought there was something off about the stabbing story over a Power Ranger game.

It's simply that blaming games is the new insanity / music / comics books /<whatever> made me do it plea.

Removing youself from the blame and transferring it to a *something* constantly under fire in the media as being a 'corrupting influence' (whether that blame was deserved or not is totally irrelevant) is a pretty good (if evil) tactic if you know you've done something wrong.

Well, it's parenting at its finest.

One hope is that the kids find a new home away from this psychotic mother and aren't damaged goods when they grow up.

Agree'd

*Yeeeeesh, definitely not agreeing with children stabbings, or any kind of stabbings for that matter.

Hey now, my mum was stabbed by HER mum when she was a kid.  Personally, I'm sure my mum was more to blame for the stabbing, as (according to the stories she told) she could be a real terror.

Sometimes kids need a good stabbing.

What a touching story.

Wow, look at that, video games DON'T make you kill people. Annoying KIDS do.

Video Games don't kill people...parents tired of hearing their kids playing video games kill people   :D

Andrew EisenI am a big Rare fan though. Many of its games are some of my absolute favorites.08/03/2015 - 8:09pm
MattsworknameAndrew: Thats fair enough, most of the games on it are games i've not played in long times, and some are games I never heard of , so I want it, but, in some cases, its may not appeal, and I can understand that08/03/2015 - 7:56pm
Andrew EisenAs for Rare Replay, I wouldn't get it even if I owned an Xbox One because I already own or have played all the Rare games that interest me.08/03/2015 - 7:54pm
Andrew EisenSounds like the packs the Ghostbusters were wearing during their hospital visit the other day were just early prototypes, not evidence of multiple packs in the film. Maybe they couldn't get the actual props off the set?08/03/2015 - 7:45pm
benohawkI won't be getting it soon since I don't have an xbone, but it's getting me to put serious thought to picking one up08/03/2015 - 7:37pm

MattsworknameDoc:: Thanks for the link, but im not interested in bickering with IP about anything. as ive noted, ive not need to argue with him'08/03/2015 - 6:58pm
Andrew EisenOne of the major points of contention seems to be whether or not TB shared or linked to a specific video, something that should be fairly easy to verify.08/03/2015 - 6:53pm
Andrew EisenNice to know what TB was referring to. What I'd like to observe is that this Kaiser chap was merely stating his opinion on his Twitter. He didn't tag in TB or GOG. So, I wouldn't classify this (and just THIS specifically) as harassment.08/03/2015 - 6:48pm

DocMelonheadMWK and IP: but if you want something recent for both of you to bicker about in regards to TB, I present you the Rowan Kaiser Slandering TB: https://archive.is/LEA5T08/03/2015 - 6:41pm

MattsworknameDOC: Tb is an opionated dude who holds extremely strong beliefs and has a severe distaste for those he views as being on the other side of the gamergate isue. I think a big part of it might be all those who went after him when he was undergoing cancer08/03/2015 - 6:38pm
DocMelonheadIP: You have to remember the human, everyone shouldn't be treated as gods or devils. Otherwise, we could've kill Bill Cosby for raping 40 women over the course of his career.08/03/2015 - 6:37pm
DocMelonheadIP: So yeah, he did spread misinformation about the victims of Gamergate Harassment: And that's bad. But It's not worth calling him out as a horrible person because of those lies that he helps spread.08/03/2015 - 6:33pm
MattsworknameAndrew: i know, I know, im just being a bit over serious today.08/03/2015 - 6:33pm
DocMelonheadIP: Should we call out Game Politics for their refusal to exclude all of Gamergate that isn't Hate speech or harassment? Because that is what your attitude tells me.08/03/2015 - 6:28pm
Andrew EisenMatt - Come on, man. You HAVE to realize that I was just goofing around with my 6:17 comment.08/03/2015 - 6:28pm
