Baby killed with video game controller - Crime & courts - MSNBC.com
The kid was beaten to death with a video game CONTROLLER! So what if someone breaks into my home, steals my xbox and controllers, and then by chance manages to beat someone to death with the controller in a back alley? You're saying it's my fault for not properly locking up and storing my xbox controller? COME ON FOLKS! It's wrong and you know it. There's no reason to feel any remorse if some bugger steals your firearms and kills someone else with them. THEY DID THE DEED, NOT YOU. They made the conscious decision to kill someone. I'm not responsible for someone elses actions no more than you are responsible for mine if I blow a stop sign on my way to work in the morning and plow a line of school children at the crosswalk.Police: Baby killed with video game controller
Mother's boyfriend accused of murder as 2-year-old dies following beating
Everyone acts of their own volition. You can hide your guns, store them as properly as sarah brady sees fit, and put 50 different kinds of locks on them and it's not going to make a bit of difference as to who's at fault if someone still manages to steal them and use them.
How about a fictitional scenario...
- Your home (apartment, house, doesn't matter)
- A criminal
- You have two vehicles one of which is primarily unused
- You live alone
- You work 8-10 hours a day on average
Start scenario...You have two vehicles but obviously only have the ability to drive one at a time which means one is staying at home all by it's lonesome.
You put your spare keys for the SECOND CAR in a dish on a shelf in the kitchen or maybe hang them sheepishly on a coat rack next to the door.
Someone breaks in while you're at work on a Monday morning and finds the keys. They cruise out of the driveway with grocery bags full of your valuables packed into YOUR second unused car.
Tuesday morning same said burgler is running late for his rendezvous with his next "five-finger discount" and completes a hit and run on an 8 year old at the school bus stop while driving YOUR vehicle.
Who's at fault? No, don't tell me. I know what the answer is: You forgot to properly store and lock your own keys in your own house.
There's no difference between someone stealing your firearms and my last scenario.
