Are you lame if you call the police on your teenager for playing video games at 2:30 am on a Saturday night? Im not sure but we can always ask a Roxbury, Massachusetts mother that dialed 911 because her son was playing Grand Theft Auto on his PlayStation. Were not sure which version of the game he was playing, but it doesnt matter in the grand scheme of things..
According to a story in the Boston Herald, 49 year old single mother Angela Mejia who had had enough of her son lying about being in bed at 2:30 AM on a Saturday night, instead spending the early morning hours play Rockstars popular and often vilified and demonized third-person action game. According to the report the last straw for Mrs. Mejia was an argument with her son after she unplugged his PlayStation. She then dialed 911. The police, expecting something far more dramatic than an unruly 14 year old, managed to talk the boy into shutting off the game and going to sleep.
They (the police) were just like, Chill out. Go to bed, the boy told the Boston Herald.
Mejia told the paper that she approves of some videos like athletic-themed games, but not ones like Grand Theft Auto.
I would never buy that kind of video. No way. I called (police) because if you dont respect your mother, what are you going to do in your life?
While im all for respecting your parents and following the rules, should 911 really be who you call when your kids dont listen? When your son or daughter is stabbing you in the face, smoking crack in your basement or taking money out of your purse, then maybe its time to dial that emergency number.
Prolly explains part of the problem.
a simple luggage lock through one of the prongs on the plug will usually do the trick.
Time to take the playstation away
A “father” would work, too.
Obammy voter, fur shure!
That was precisely my reaction.
Wire cutters work, too.
Bitches. And rotten mothers.
bad idea.. what happens when *I* want to play?
too much work to spice wires and take them apart again.
Why should she be any different than any other adult in our responsibility-free society?
Parents call the police instead of disciplining their kids, teachers call the police instead of taking charge of their classrooms. No one is responsible for anything anymore. Let the government take care of everything for you.
we talking about your ex or mine? :P
The little brat is now mortified that the story is all over the newspapers. Good!!
Better yet, if you can, never give your kids a Video game.
I have yet to see a positive effect on kids from video games.
Strange world ping.
My fingernails need clipping. I guess I’ll call 911.
