Three Arrested at Shinboku-con 2011

May 2, 2011 -

Three men attending Shinboku-con 2011 in Westlake, Ohio this weekend ended their attendance to the three-day anime/video game/culture event by going to jail. Police arrested two attendees of the anime and video game conference at about 7:15 p.m. on April 30. The two men, a 27-year-old Cleveland resident and a 21-year-old Canal Fulton man, got into an argument over how the younger gentleman was playing an undisclosed video game. The younger man was so agitated by the critique that he punched the other man in the mouth an hour after the initial argument. Police arrested the younger man for assault. The older man, proving just how stupid he is, decided to spit on an officer. Both men were released later that evening.

On the same day police returned to the Holiday Inn where the event was being held for another call. At around 8 p.m. an 18-year-old Lorain man started damaging hotel property. Coincidently, the suspect turned out to be the brother of the 27-year-old Cleveland man who was arrested earlier in the evening for spitting on an officer. The 18-year-old had left the hotel when police arrived, but was arrested later in the parking lot of the nearby Board of Education. He and a friend were waiting there while another 22-year-old man checked to see what happened to his brother. Officers arrested the 18-year-old for criminal damaging and underage consumption of alcohol. They also arrested the 18-year-old friend for underage consumption. Both were later released.

Maybe a few less morons will attend next year’s Shinboku-con. In case you did not know, Shinboku-con is an annual event that features video games, anime, card and board games, tournaments, cosplay, exhibitors, and more.

Anime Central in Chicago is one of the largest conventions in the midwest. The festivities technically start on Friday, but over the past few years, it's been getting so big that the accidents and incidents have been starting Thursday night and going constantly the whole weekend through.

With the frequency of conventions of all kind, you need a network of people just to keep up with all of the crazy crap that happened over somes tupid stuff that ended with some people getting dragged away in cuffs or on a stretcher.

Hell, I once went to a con where a girl in the room next to me got alcohol poisoning. Turns out she was underaged and the con didn't come back for another year at that hotel.

Oh, it could be worse. You could live in the same state as Jack Thompson. *sigh*

You mean the man who would have these events banned throughout the country by selling the BS that things like these are normal at such events which is why they ever hire security?

Yes. In my state. Disbarred mind you, but still in my state. Can anyone's state beat that? ;)

E. Zachary KnightMatt, But if we don't include more women leads in games, the chances of them leading a good game drops considerably. That is a big problem. The games industry is already risk adverse and you seem to be suggesting that it stay that way.06/30/2015 - 9:36pm
MattsworknameWhining about games not haaving enought females, thats foolish, cause if the games are good, then the lead will be well known as a result.see alex vance, she wasn't even the playable lead, but she's so well known cause half life 2 was such an amazing game06/30/2015 - 9:04pm
MattsworknameOn the subject of gaming. Im of the opinion that, its fine if there are more FEMALE leads, but if the game itself isn't good? then your doing a disservice by having a female lead cause they wont get any recognition or attention.06/30/2015 - 9:01pm
Mattsworknameandrew, im not as hyped, without the origional cast, I feel it just won't have the same impact . I'll still give ti a shot, but my expectations are low for it. Its a shame we lost ramis.06/30/2015 - 8:57pm

Andrew Eisen(Ghostbusters is my favorite movie, if anyone was wondering why I'm so unusually excited for this project.)06/30/2015 - 7:01pm
Andrew EisenI am so completely over-the-moon with excitement for the new Ghostbusters movie! It's going to absolutely destroy me if it sucks. Long wait. Fingers crossed!06/30/2015 - 7:00pm
Goth_SkunkAdditionally, the entry really doesn't have much of a point to it. It's just a long, rambling rant akin to what an angsty high-school student would write on their facebook page.06/30/2015 - 6:51pm
MonteAnd most of those viewpoints just so happen to revolve around women and topics that feminists cover, and not actual gaming journalism.06/30/2015 - 6:51pm
Goth_Skunk@DocMelonhead: First off, thanks for using an archive. Second, I would argue that Miss Alexander doesn't know the right women. Given the members of her echo-chamber, I don't find that surprising in the least.06/30/2015 - 6:50pm
Goth_Skunk@Monte: GamerGate does not focus attention on feminists; it focuses its attention on viewpoints it happens to disagree with. The fact that most of those opinions happen to come from radical feminists is a coincidence.06/30/2015 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenBut hey, we all make bad videos from time to time. I'm certainly not going to hold that single one against her.06/30/2015 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenAh, okay. I probably don't read their blogs or follow them on Twitter so I've never heard anything they've had to say. The only thing I know about Sommers is the video we reported on a while back and I certainly wouldn't classify that as scholarly!06/30/2015 - 6:30pm
Goth_SkunkAlso, "junior campus feminist" is a young (late teens to late 20's, hence "junior") college student radical activist (see Emma Sulkowicz as an example). This, as opposed to a more mature, scholarly feminist like Sommers.06/30/2015 - 6:24pm
Andrew EisenNo, because "feminisim" isn't a group. There are feminist groups with leaders though.06/30/2015 - 6:23pm
Goth_SkunkDoes Feminism have a leader?06/30/2015 - 6:19pm
Andrew EisenWell, maybe the SPJ Airplay discussion will be just what everyone needed and we'll all live happily ever after!06/30/2015 - 6:16pm
MonteFrankly, for those in it for jounalism, the best thnig they can do is forget GG and find a new Tag. By using GG theybring with themselves all of the baggage that comes with it, and thus no one listens to them. They voices would go farthar without trolls06/30/2015 - 6:12pm
MonteThing is with internaet movements, their is no leadership or membership which means ANYONE can define it and use it as they please. No one member gets to sayhis version is right and everyone else is wrong because his claim is just as valid as theirs06/30/2015 - 6:10pm
MonteGamergate's menaing varies from person to person. Some pretty much allign it with MRA's. Other's do it because they want to defend developers from feminists who criticize their work. This has nothing to do with journalism but gets the Tag anyway06/30/2015 - 6:08pm
