[quote]A teenager was shot Monday afternoon after he was arguing over tater tots with another teen, San Antonio Police said.

The shooting happened close to 5 p.m. at the Spring Hill Apartments off Raybon on the northeast side.

Neighbors told police the uncle of one of the boys told the teens to stop fighting. They were ready to stop, but investigators said a 20-year-old man would not let them.

“Another person out here in this apartment complex, I think wanted to see the young boys continue fighting,â€

How are you suggesting Jack Thompson has anything to do with this?
I'd imagine right now you wish you were a cuttlefish...

I wound be suprised if they some how added something to this story. Like as something was a catalyst to why the kid shot the others, besides the fact he was angry. As for the kid that did the shotting, I hope he gets caught and gets his butt stomped in prison. These punks need to think about what their doing, and the simple nerve impulse that runs through their heads everyone once a day doesn't suffice.

It's a way of mocking his arguments since he often makes a direct link between playing video games and being violent, depressed etc. where there is only anecdotal evidence to support such a link, and it would be typical of him to make a link between an unimportant fact (some video games are violent/the argument was over tater tots) and a negative action or way of being (being violent/getting shot because you argued over tater tots).

He's gonna say that the movie Napolean Dynamite caused this and that mtv should be banned from making films that inspire such crimes. Its a crazy world that we live in when people get hurt for no reason like this though.

You guys've obviously never seen the "Hot taters" mod in GTA. :oops:
