    20-year-old who used Grand Theft Auto as defense for triple homicide sentenced to lethal injection.

    Earlier this year, Devin Moore, now 20, was on trial for the 2003 triple homicide of three Alabama policemen. While in detention for stealing a car, Moore grabbed the pistol of one officer and used it to fatally shoot a total of three of them.

    The defense mounted a case based on a childhood full of mental and physical abuse, as well as an affinity for violent games. One game in particular, Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto III, was singled out, because gamers can steal cars and kill cops in it. Moore had said he was inspired by the PlayStation 2 game.

    In August, a jury swiftly convicted Moore of the charges. And today, a judge laid down the most severe punishment the justice system allows.

    Moore will be put to death by lethal injection. Defense attorney Jim Standridge will appeal the case.

    The victims' families have sued Take-Two Interactive (parent company of Rockstar), Sony, Wal-Mart, and GameStop for their parts in the manufacturing and selling of the game.

    Get riled up, boys and girls, another slam against GTA because some of some rube. The victims' families should have sued firearm manufacturers for manufacturing firearms as well. So silly.

    Well atleast the judge isn't an idiot, I would have done the same, but if he had just said it was his fault, then I probably wouldn't have done capital. But come on blaming a video game? That alone deserves capital punishment.

    They wore the insanity plea out, so now they have to use the "well it's not my fault" plea.

    Without Mario, would you have thought to do that?
    Did you know that half the people that do shrooms were inpired to do so by their favorite plumber?

    Yea, the world is full of small, dumb, stinky people. I'm already used to it.

    Ok, knowing what causes your "insanity": Lie.

    As for people being sue happy, this is why I get sick of ignorance. Blame always takes the wrong ones. I have no sympathy for stupidity, therefore, I have no sympathy for the victim's families.

    There's no defence for murder, let alone 3 murders. It's ashame we have to have human rights for people like that, they're not human, they shouldn't be allowed to die in such an manor. It should last weeks of slow agonising pain. But yeah yeah I know.. it's not allowed, because apparently there gene makeup still suggests they're human. Pfff...

    The weak minded can be taken by anything. We cannot possible take away everything they could use as an excuse. Instead we get rid of them : )

    notic nobody ever blames rape or prostitution on GTA...it's only when the shit REALLY hits the fan that they pull out the scape goat du jour.

    I think they should run this idiot over with the car he stole and give the cop's families the gun he used to kill them with and see what happens.


    and as for blaming GTA.....take2 should just put a Jackass style warning on the game: all acts of violence caried out and/or supervised by digitized professionals, take 2, rockstar, and it's subsidiaries must insist that you not try to recreate or re-enact any ofthis at home. no animals were harmed in the making of this game....except sparky, but that car chasing flea bag had it coming.


    :rofl:

    Shouldn't it read:

    "Judge sentences murderer to death" ??

    Hmmm, if he had a hobby of watching movies would they say, "Judge sentences scary movie watcher to death"??

    This is just so much BS... Can't even believe how stupid people are.

    I can.

    I've had to put up to so much stupidity, I literally cried.

    I seriously could not take so much stupid at one time. At that time, I felt like I was fricking god, looking at the failure of creation.

    I dont think it's the game's fault that this young man has a severe problem. He should definitely be confined somewhere, at the least. Though I'm not saying this young man doesnt deserve the death penalty; I am saying it is a hard decision to make that call to me.

    One of the best quotes I have heard in a long time. Mind if I use it?




    I'm trying to figure out the reason for dumb people.
