Small child killed with videogame controller

Child abuse is no laughing matter and is, without a doubt, a severe problem in the United States. There are a few out-of-the-ordinary cases in which violence and videogames become interrelated in tragic events. Unfortunately, the two have come together once again, but not for the reasons you may think. A 2-year-old girl was beaten to death on Tuesday by her mother’s boyfriend with a videogame controller. It was not the first time the young child had been abused – due to injuries and bruises on the girl’s body, it was obvious that she had been abused before. Although this case was, most likely, not a result of video game violence, it’s a shame that videogames were involved, even in the slightest, in this saddening affair. Why on Earth anyone would harm a child – especially with a videogame controller – is beyond me.
