Mark Bradford, a 46 year old grown man recently admitted to tracking down and choking a 13-year-old boy who killed him while playing Call of Duty: Black Ops and then taunted him through the game chat. Look, I know some of these kids can be foul mouthed and unrespectable, but to actually track them down to hurt them? That's a pretty crazy assholish thing to do.
Bradford admitted that he "just lost it" after the boy killed him in-game. The jobless father of three proceeded to find the boy's address in Plymoth, Devon, confronted the kid and started to choke him out! He was only stopped when the boy's mother pulled him off her son. Bradford called the attack a "moment of madness." This guy is a pathetic nut case.
The kids mom had this to say in a statement,
It’s pathetic that a grown man would attack a defenceless child like this. If you can’t handle losing to a child then you shouldn’t be playing games.
I couldn't agree with her more, but what did Bradford have to say about why he did it?
I'd been playing the whole day and he was baiting me and baiting me and just would not shut up. He went on and on and I just lost it. I hold my hands up, I lost the plot. In a moment of madness I went round to his house. I didn't know what I was going to do.
So he started to strangle him? What the hell?! I know things can get heated wile playing video games, but this is completely unacceptable. Bradford admitted one count of assault by beating.
What do you think?
