Iowa Teenager Kills Mother Over Preventing Him From Playing ‘Call of Duty’

Iowa Teenager Kills Mother Due To Preventing him to play Call of Duty

I don’t know why things like this happen but I wish they would stop.  An Iowa teenage decided to shoot and kill his mother after she prevented him from playing ‘Call of Duty.’  I know people will lobby against guns and video games but I think there is more to it in this situation.

Noah Crooks, age 14, took his .22 gauge gun and shot his mother over 20 times three hours after she took his video game controller away.  Crook’s mother took the controller away due to his grades were slipping in school.  After killing his mother, Noah tried to rape her.

Crooks called 911 to report the crime on March 24, 2013.  Noah told the dispatcher,

“I’m not joking at all. She’s dead. I’m scared. I killed my mom with my .22.”
“Tell them my weapon is empty. I just wish it was a dream so I could wake up and I could kiss her and hug her.”

Noah’s defense team will have a child psychiatrist testify that he suffers from intermittent explosive disorder.  Intermittent explosive disorder is something I have never heard about in my life.  I guess it causes people to have unscheduled or detectable violent outburst.

I am not blaming video games, guns, or mental disorders on this one.  I blame the parents.  Something has to be said when you’re child thinks it is okay to behave violently and it is okay.  Personally, the parents had to see his behavior escalating to this level.

Who do you place the blame on in this situation with Noah Crooks of Iowa?
