Teenager Finds Practical Use of GTA IV, Murders Cab Driver
An 18-year-old high school student in Thailand stabbed and killed a cab driver while attempting to rob the taxi. Police stated his motives were "he wanted to find out if it was as easy in real life to rob a taxi as it was in the game", and the fact that his parents didn’t have the broccoli to spend three months salary on a simple "game". Contrary to popular belief, robbing taxis with your moms butter knife "while trying to steer a cab backwards out of a Bangkok street with the driver still in the back seat," isn’t as easy as the voices in head tell you it is. Now he is facing the death penalty if found guilty and Thailand plans to ban Grand Theft Auto IV, which has also caused problems in in other places.
