An angry four-year-old Saudi boy shot and killed his father for refusing to buy him a PlayStation, Saudi media reported on Monday.
The Asharq daily, citing police in the southern Jizan area, said the child, aged four years and seven months, grabbed his father’s pistol and shot him in the head.
According to the newspaper, the child had asked his father to buy him a PlayStation and the shooting took place after the man returned home without the desired object.
As he was undressing, the man put the weapon down, which the child then grabbed and fired at him from close range.
This kinda turns the whole “Video games will turn kids violent” theory upside down, huh? I mean shit, it looks like video games are the only things keeping kids from being violent sociopaths. Which is exactly why when I have a son I’m gonna give that little bastard every last video game and buy him every new counsel his little heart desires. That way I can put his ass in front of a television for hours at a time without having to actually, you know, parent the kid and I’ll still never have to worry about coming home from work to a .45 pointed at my face. Keep the kids happy and out of Daddy’s hands and keep my head on my shoulders. Seems like a sensible solution.
On a separate note this report is ignoring the most important detail of this story. What kind of a Playstation are we talking about here? I mean sure, if the little shit head was asking for a Playstation 3 I could understand where the father was coming from. That shit’s expensive, and I got to imagine a dude rolling around Saudi Arabia carrying a gun with him everywhere he goes has got bigger shit to worry about than Playstations. But if little Buffalo Bill’s father was refusing to buy him a Playstation 2 or a Playstation 1? I mean shit than I kinda see where the kid is coming from. Honestly bro, how much does an original Playstation cost? Like 25 bucks, maybe? And you’re gonna say no to your little psychotic marksman of a son? Not worth it home boy.
PS. How scared do you think this kid’s mother is to say no to him from now on? Like, “what’s that mommy? I can’t have the new Power Rangers action figures? That’s funny, Daddy once said something like that…” Total power move by this kid. There’s no shot in hell he’s not just swimming in action figures and video games and scooters and all that shit once he gets back from whatever jail there is for murderous 4-year-olds.
