Steal My Virtual Loot? See You In Real Life Court
Posted 31 January 2012 - 10:25 AM
The Netherlands' highest court confirmed Tuesday that a boy who threatened the 13-year-old with a knife to make him drop the objects in the online fantasy game RuneScape was guilty of theft and ordered him to perform 144 hours of community service.
The court did not release the suspect's name, only his year of birth _ 1992. It said he and another youth beat and kicked the boy and threatened him with a knife until he logged into RuneScape and dropped the objects in 2007.
The court ruled the 13-year-old owned the virtual objects because of the time and energy he invested in winning them.

I'd say it's the same reason someone kills someone over road rage. If he threatened him with a knife over a game, he was probably already screwed up in the first place.
He should have to serve time just for even playing Runescape. Amarite'?

Which is weird, because I don't even have any arrow making skills, so I'd just leave them on the ground next to the corpse.

Did it make you suspect that everyone you knew was a secret agent for The Patriots?
