    That's hilarious.

    I love the way though that they got punished for the fake stealing rather than the actually bad part about the crime which was extortion and threatening someone with a lethal weapon...

    That entire case just baffles me :|

    I'd say more than liekly because they were so young they couldn't stick the attack to him legally so got him for theft. Little **** deserved it and more.

    Oh jeebus, I'm ashamed to say I live in this country. ._.

    Edit: I know this means little to those who don't understand the language, but here's the court ruling:

    http://zoeken.rechtspraak.nl/detailpage.aspx?ljn=BQ9251

    Noteworthy is paragraph 2.4 which states:
    Moonspeak:

    2.4. Het Hof heeft het bewezenverklaarde gekwalificeerd als "diefstal, voorafgegaan en vergezeld van geweld en bedreiging met geweld tegen personen, gepleegd met het oogmerk om die diefstal voor te bereiden en gemakkelijk te maken, terwijl het feit gepleegd wordt door twee of meer verenigde personen", strafbaar gesteld in art. 310 in verbinding met art. 312 Sr.
    Essentially it boils down to the court declaring that the two boys committed a planned out act of thievery in combination with violence. It still baffles me that they only got 144 hours of community service though.

    Don't forget Britain had some monarchs come over from holland at some point (I think?)

    Also, you have Amsterdam, basically stag party heaven.

    Yep I'm real glad I'm not a mmo player. Wait the guy was born in 92? That would make him a adult attacking a minor. Could they convict him of a more serious crime than robbery?

    Incident happened in 2007 making him 15 took till now to get to the supreme court.

    If you want a scary mmo story, look up World of WarCraft epic mount girl, proof that some people will do anything for a game.

    ^ I'm afraid to look that up.

    The ruling isn't what interested me. It was the fact they beat and threatened him with a knife in real life just for a few virtual items in a game. That's taking a game way too seriously.

    Yeah, it's only the Supreme Court ruling that came this year.

    I just looked up the specifically cited legal articles and I'm flabbergasted. If the act was committed alone they could've convicted the perp with up to 9 years of incarceration, because it was committed by 2 or more people they could've been convicted with 12 years. I'm repeatedly disappointed with how lax the law is towards minors :S

    Basically girls who offer sex in exchange for epic mounts in WoW.

    I don't think it's that they take the game too seriously, I think it's a case of bullies taking powerplay way too far. People like them regularly bully for anything because they can, not because they really want something.

    ^ So, I just looked that up, because curiosity got the better of me. I can't believe she got it in only one hour. News spreads faster then I thought.

    Why do people take games so seriously? I wouldn't sell myself for just a virtual item or flying mount.

    Also, http://www.dailybits.com/top-6-bizarre-online-gaming-incidents/. The virtual **** seems creepy. I thought the WoW plague was halarious.

    I actually played that game at one point, I'm not actually that surprised that someone did this either. A lot of people at higher levels take that game a little bit too seriously, not everyone, but they can be a bit obsessive.

    Dangerous game never went near it but a mate of mine dissapeared for 2 years because of it and put on about 8 stone, he did meet his fiance on it though, I kid you not and no she does not have an epic mount.

    That doesn't surprise me, I know couples who have met online and married.

    I don't think WoW in and of itself is dangerous, or MMO's, but the mindset of the people who get addicted. I used to play MMO's but I got bored of them, now I have no reason to play any, let alone pay a monthly subscription.

    I'd say it depends on the people. Besides, love is love, doesn't matter where you meet someone.
