TV News Has Video Report on Sentencing of Teen Halo 3 Killer

June 17, 2009 -

Cleveland's Fox 8 has a video report (not embeddable, unfortunately) - including courtroom footage - on yesterday's sentencing of Daniel Petric.

The 17-year-old was sentenced by Judge James Burge from 23 years to life in prison for the 2007 murder of his mother and wounding of his father. The incident was apparently sparked over the parents refusal to permit their son to play Halo 3.

The Judge thought the killer thought that if he killed his parents they'd just respawn or something.

The judge did something very stupid. He opened the door really really wide for an appeal. This...boy/man/retard will end up going to a mental institution or getting off because of the judges *misjudgement.

Re: TV News Has Video Report on Sentencing of Teen Halo 3 ...

 Yeah I'm still not getting how a Judge can basically write in the judgement that he feels the defendant was not aware of the consequences of his actions but didn't factor mental state into the sentancing at all.

Re: TV News Has Video Report on Sentencing of Teen Halo 3 ...

But didn't they say the judge agreed with the killer when he said the video game made him do it???

Re: TV News Has Video Report on Sentencing of Teen Halo 3 ...

Justice is served. 23 to life *nods* For murdering your family, I would just say life. No parole. No anything.

Glad no one was fooled by the "video games made me do it" excuse.

No one other than the Judge who used it as a factor in determinng sentence.

Matthew Wilsonbasically "we do not want to put these games on a system more then 10 people own" just joking07/27/2014 - 8:13pm
MaskedPixelanteSomething, something, the 3DS can't properly emulate GBA games and it was a massive struggle to get the ambassador games running properly.07/27/2014 - 8:06pm
Andrew EisenIdeally, you'd be able to play such games on either platform but until that time, I think Nintendo's using the exclusivity in an attempt to further drive Wii U sales.07/27/2014 - 7:21pm
Matthew WilsonI am kind of surprised games like battle network are not out on the 3ds.07/27/2014 - 7:01pm
Andrew EisenWell, Mega Man 1 - 4, X and X2 are already on there and the first Battle Network is due out July 31st.07/27/2014 - 6:16pm
MaskedPixelanteDid Capcom ever give us a timeline for when they planned on putting the Megaman stuff on Wii U?07/27/2014 - 2:23pm
MaskedPixelanteIf by "distance themselves from Google Plus" you mean "forcing Google Plus integration in everything", then yes, they are distancing themselves from Google Plus.07/26/2014 - 12:20pm
MechaTama31I wish they would distance G+ from the Play Store, so I could leave reviews and comments again.07/26/2014 - 11:03am
Matthew Wilson@pm I doubt it. Google seems to be distancing themselves from G+07/25/2014 - 9:31pm
Papa MidnightGoogle+ Integration is coming to Twitch!07/25/2014 - 8:41pm
MaskedPixelanteThis whole Twitch thing just reeks of Google saying "You thought you could get away from us and our policies. That's adorable."07/25/2014 - 2:52pm
Sleaker@james_fudge - hopefully that's the case, but I wont hold my breath for it to happen.07/25/2014 - 1:08pm

james_fudgeI think Twitch will have more of an impact on how YouTube/Google Plus work than the other way around.07/25/2014 - 10:22am
IanCWelp, twitch is going to suck now. Thanks google.07/25/2014 - 6:30am
