Wow, that must have been utter ridicule for him. At least they finally figured out he was sentinent. I'd be interested to read his book, and see what it's like to be in this sort of state.

14 year old kid kills dad with sledgehammer after being banned from his computer.

Link
A 14-YEAR-OLD boy in southern Russia has been charged with killing his father with a sledgehammer after his parents tried to stop him from playing computer games.

The unnamed boy in the coastal town of Tuapse, located by the Black Sea in Russia's southern Krasnodar region, bludgeoned his father to death while he lay sleeping, regional investigators said.

"At around 1am (local time) on April 12, the suspect dealt his sleeping father at least two blows on the head with a sledgehammer," the region's investigative committee said.

"The man died on the spot from a head injury.

A spokeswoman said the parents had taken away the keyboard as a disciplinary measure after he spent a week playing computer games.

After the killing, the boy's frightened mother gave him the keyboard back and the boy played computer games for several more hours until he fell asleep, the spokeswoman said.

At that point, the mother, who was not injured, contacted relatives who in turn called police.

The boy, who has no criminal record, is now being held in pre-trial detention.

At 14, he is old enough to be charged with murder under Russian law.
While that is undoubtedly one disturbed kid, I'm pretty sure bad parenting is also a factor.

I don't want to be callous but I expected something more Mortal Kombaty based on the headline. Still really freaky though.

According to an autopsy Powell, 21, bled to death after his heart was ripped out.
I thought that was implied when they said "still-beating heart"....

He did it just so the sentence "A German student "mooned" a group of Hell's Angels and hurled a puppy at them before escaping on a stolen bulldozer" could be printed on the BBC.

Who sleeps shall awake, looking through the window of our lives
Waiting for the moment to arrive...
Show us the silence in the rise,
So that we may someday understand...

It sounds like he was inspired by one of those random story idea generators.

For sale - village with pub, 40 people

Reuters Fri Jun 25, 2:08 pm ET

WELLINGTON (Reuters) – Stressed-out city executives looking to get away from it all have the chance to buy their own rural village in New Zealand, complete with a pub and population of 40.

Otira, a hamlet on the rainy west coast of New Zealand's South Island, is on the market for $NZ1 million ($715,000).

Possibly, but I think it's just a rumor.
