DAILY MANIFESTO

Father Knows Blast

Posted on Wednesday, April 26 @ 18:16:30 Eastern by Joe_Dodson
If video games make kids violent, dirty clothes apparently do the same for their parents. Joystiq.com today points to a story out of Dunedin, Florida, in which creepy dad Joe Langenderfer was arrested for shooting at his son while the boy played video games on his computer. According to the TampaBays10.com article,

"The older Langenderfer reportedly told deputies he was mad that his son had not done the laundry and was spending all his time playing games on their computer. He told deputies that although he told his son he was going to shoot the computer, the gun accidentally fired."

Riiight. Gun loaded? Check. Safety off? Check. Pointed in lazy son's general direction? Check. Finger on trig-BLAM! Whoopsie!

Is it any wonder the kid was addicted to escapist fantasy? We always say parents are more to blame than video games for violent behavior, but this is ridiculous. We aren't sure whether the bullet was meant for the PC or its player, but according to the story it hit the wall at least three feet from either mark. Sounds like somebody needs to play more video games.
