Teen Arsonists Say GTA Taught Them to Make Molotov Cocktails
In Milton, Georgia, three teenagers were arrested after several cars were firebombed with Molotov cocktails on the evening of July 24th. The teens were caught when police pulled receipts from a local Wal-mart and found one listing Sprite bottles, red rags, and lighter fluid. From there, they looked at the store surveillance tapes and were able to identify the ones involved. When confronted, what explanation did the teenagers give for their actions? Why, that “Grand Theft Auto” taught them “how to do it” of course. Each teen is now being charged with 19 felony counts, including arson, criminal damage to property, and possession of explosive devices.
What happened to the good old days when teenagers would blame The Anarchist Cookbook or Che Guevara’s Guerrilla Warfare on these sorts of things. Kids just don’t read enough it seems.
