  • watch what you say on XBL...

    Cumberland Times reports that a Frostburg State University student has been taken into custody after an investigation confirmed that the 19-year-old gamer issued a threat of “shooting up the school” while playing Call of Duty 4. Shaw faces a maximum penalty of one year jail time and/or a fine of up to $5,000.

    According to court records, Shaw was playing the game “Call for Duty 4” in the XBOX Live gaming system with players around the country when he allegedly stated the threat of “shooting up the school.” The statement reportedly contained a description from Shaw concerning “how he was going to do it.”

    As the university community and the rest of the city pondered the frightening possibility of violence shattering the typical calm of the Mountain City, police working with Microsoft and Xbox Live tracked the Internet provider address to Shaw and his room at Annapolis Hall.

    After Shaw was taken into custody, he reportedly told investigators that “he was joking and had no intention of following through with the threats,” according to the court documents.

    Nice, I love seeing people like that force-fed some humble pie law-style.

      Too bad XBL and military police don't investigate and prosecute instances of online fratricide with the same vigilance.

            HEY CENSORS: I'M GOING TO SHOOT UP MY SCHOOL.

            Oh man, I went there!

            Edit: While I believe that if threats like this are serious, they should be dealt with. But really...it's XBL. Do you take what's said there seriously?

              I think it is wrong to joke like that, but there is a level of interference into personal lives that the state should have no right to move into. The government needs to look at morals-O I forgot morals and ethics are being lost more and more on my generation- for a government with out morals is a nation without wisdom, understanding, and a heart.
