I am confused at which is worse — being 20 and playing a video game or using a battle ax on a fellow child-adult.

If all it required was stitches then it wasn’t a real battle ax and he didn’t have much of a swing. Apparently hefting an actual weapon takes more strength than pushing the X+A+down buttons at the same time.

So much for the PS4 "Perfect Day" commercial.

So, when will the left beg for battle axe control?

Terroristic Threats

That seems to be the authorities favorite new "throw away" charge. It isn't bad enough he chopped somebody with an axe...but GASP...he made TERRORISTIC THREATS while doing it.

FYI this was in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Here's the New York Daily News article which also calls it a medieval ax then shows a picture of a halbert.

I assume he just grapped the nearest battle axe he could find. My place is littered with them. It seems every Christmas someone gets me a battle axe, a broad sword, a bladed mace, etc. The cat o’ nine tails last year was the last straw. I had to send letters out saying “Please no more medieval weapons. I’m running out of space for them and I can hardly even lift a few. Something like a fruit cake would be just fine instead”.

Law enforcement has to diminish the meaning of the term “terrorist” to suggest that “everybody does it”. No profiling of Islamic jihadists, plz.

Maybe it was a real axe wieldied by really skinny arms. A stringent video game regemine doesn’t tend to develop upper body strength.

Never mind that. I hate how “terrorism” is being applied to every common crime and maybe some not so common and nasty crimes. None of which falls under the true definition of terrorism. Dumbing down everything these days trying to make federal cases out of all.

Sort of awkward to carry around in public, I would think. But I suppose you’d be given a wide comfort zone while carrying a 10 foot battle lance.

My first take was wrong—it wasn’t a virtual ax from the game. But, if all he had was cuts, it wasn’t much of an ax, either. Still.... weird.

Watch out if he buys you a cat ‘o nine tails and a pair of hand cuffs, unless you’re really into that kind of thing.

Average age of a video gamer these days is 35-37. It is actually not odd at all for a 20-year-old to be gaming.

Terroristic threats is a garbage charge allowing cops to arrest you for anything they wish.

The oldest gamer I have met in an MMO was in his 80’s. The idea that there is an age cap for video games is ridiculous. The first computer games were designed by bored grad students using mainframes.

was playing a video game

The argument is that children aren't influenced by anything they see on TV or video games for that matter.

But yet the govt has banned all tobacco related advertisements from not only TV and radio but roadside signs too........

What do they know that they're not telling us? (or that WE already know?)
