Over the weekend, in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, an argument over an Xbox 360 is believed to have led to a son to ask his father to shoot him in which the father, being the total dick that he is, complied to do so.
James Stanley Niedosik, 60, got into a heated argument with his 17 year old son when the young man wanted to show his father the 360 and the father declined to take a gander. During the dispute, the son pulled a Darwinian move and handed his father a rifle and asked to shoot him. Being the father of the year that he is, Niedosik pulled the trigger and fired a .22 caliber bullet into his son's head. The bullet was lodged in the boy's skull (behind the ear), but is expected to survive. He is now being treated at a near-by hospital.
Niedosik was later arrested on numerous charges including: aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, and endangering the welfare of a child. He is now in Monroe County Prison on $250,000 bail.
While games may not be the general cause of this crime, I do believe that the father was pretty pissed off at his son for constantly cooking his grenades during their Call of Duty 4 matches.
