I want to ask everybody who is currently reading this article a quick question. Is gaming this important to someone?
Earlier today, I was looking for something to post about. I was searching high and low on Twitter, checking up on Major League Baseball, WWE and National Football League news until I stumbled across this article.
The title? ‘Man Kills Infant Son To Play XBox One‘.
My heart sank immediately. Realizing that there are people out there who would rather play video games than taking care of a life that they created, just baffles me.
It turns out, that there is in fact people out there who are unable to handle these parental duties. Cody Wygant, 24 years old, is the Florida Father who suffocated his crying son so he could play video games on his XBox One and watch television. The article posted by the Montreal Gazette notes that his son was placed in his play pin around 7 a.m. but was murdered around 1 a.m.
Wygant became frustrated because his son was crying uncontrollably, which prevented him from playing on his XBox. The article goes on to say that he covered his little boys nose and mouth for three to four minutes, then covered him in bedding.
“It is inconceivable that a Father could kill his infant son – it just baffles the mind.” Sherrif Jeff Dawsy via the Montreal Gazette.
The 24 year old Father was playing XBox and watched three episodes of that show ‘Fringe’, which got kind of boring to me after a season or two.
I’ve heard of things such as ‘rage quit’, but this is completely insane. No video game on this planet is worth taking the life of anybody, even if they’re talking trash online. The guy supposedly has a three month old daughter with his girlfriend (whose name was not released), who is currently with family services.
Such a tragedy. Rest in peace little guy.
