"In Leonardtown, Maryland, a 17-year-old boy admitted in court Friday to trying to hire a hit man to kill his parents after he reportedly became angry at them for confiscating his PlayStation.

According to police, Cory Ryder, 17, told the mother of one of his friends that he wanted his parents dead. The woman contacted authorities and detectives decided to set up a sting.

Ryder was told to meet with a police officer posing as a hit man at a hotel. That’s where he offered the undercover officer his stepfather’s new pickup truck as payment for killing his parents. “Two bullets is all it takes,” he allegedly said.

Ryder told Juvenile Services that he was angry that his parents grounded him for weeks, confiscated his PlayStation, banned him from watching television, and kicked him out of the house.

His defense attorney argues that Ryder was under pressure to meet the officer at the hotel and that he never intended to go through with the killing.

According to The Washington Post, Ryder has history of bad behavior. He reportedly smashed a fire extinguisher case and broke into the local county fairgrounds, where he vandalized property.

After Ryder was sentenced to probation, he dropped out of school and even stole $45 from his sister’s piggy bank.

Even though Ryder’s mother wanted her son tried in an adult court, a judge has ruled that he will be tried in the juvenile system, meaning he cannot be held beyond the age of 21."

I think the fact that he was kicked out of his house might have more to do with it then simply his playstation being confiscated.

There were obviously some serious family problems going on there.





A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.

Funny how these stories are often linked to video games whenever possible! Any excuse is good to bash games.

I have children, and there's one remedy for this - go to your local Home Depot®, buy a blow torch, head home, place said console in driveway, place safety goggles atop face, page son to driveway - ignite torch and apply liberally to said console.

If he disrespects over a toy, I destroy it right in front of them. Trust me - it works ...

Okay...

So the 360 kid punched his mother.

The PS3 kid hires a hitman to kill the parents.

What does the Wii kid do when the parents take away the Wii?

".. where the Humor-Impaired Gamers play"

...

.... I don't get it :(

jokes aside (as much as i'd like to make a joke about playstation players being mature), i hardly see this as a direct result of his playstation being confiscated, rather than being due to him being kicked out of the house..
