Pokemon Hunting Crane Driver Drags Woman To Death


Mega-blockbuster smartphone hit Pokemon Go has once again been blamed for a horrendous accident, this time distracting a crane driver for long enough for the incompetent to unknowingly knock a woman unconscious and drag her 130 meters to her death.

Occupied with catching his virtual critters, the 47-year-old crane driver struck 39-year-old woman and the moped she was riding whilst driving through an intersection, dragging her to her untimely death.

The negligent man is currently standing trial on charges of reckless driving resulting in death, his only defense being that he “did not notice” the accident at the time.

Police say that nationwide there have been 26 serious accidents tied to Pokemon Go related negligence and idiocy, 3 of which have been fatal. The bereaved family in this case are calling for extra penalties for smartphone related negligence.

    As Hillary Clinton would say, "Pokemon Go kill yourself.", seriously. If you want to play Pokemon, buy the games and play them in your spare time, not on the fucking road. And yes, a car that I was driving was struck by an idiot playing this shit.

    An accident? What an interesting thing to call a murder...

    Premeditation doesn't equal intent, which is what's required to qualify a killing as murder. Premediation only warrants harsher sentence.

    Is the killing premeditated?
    Look up the definition of murder, donkey.

    You can't define legal murder by your own country's definition of it. Not every country considers murder strictly premeditated.

    Also note that you are complaining about how they are calling it an accident instead of murder, yet when it is pointed out that you're full of shit, you claim that some definitions aren't uniform, so even if most of the world wouldn't consider it murder, we must respect exceptional definitions.

    "They should use this word instead."
    "Don't tell me to use a word. I won't specify a country, but not all countries use words the same way!"

    What a joke you are.

    "Not every country considers murder strictly premeditated."

    List the countries that consider this case murder. Have you looked up the definition of murder yet? Feel free to use whichever book you please.

    Pokemon Go is new & popular. That could be the only reason for dissing it. Who cares anymore about accidents and deaths where driver talks to the phone while driving (without hands-free equipment) or flips through porn magazine?

    Same reason as always, everybody blames everything but themselves. In this case, it is humanity itself at fault.

    I might take this bet. How do you define "accidents from shootings"? And how much are you willing to wager?

    That's true, but the weird thing is that these smartphone-app related incidents always seem to involve Pokemon Go. Why not Candy Crush or w/e? Other games are surely underrepresented.

    The more you travel the more chances you have for an accident if you are not carefully looking.

    Because it's
    1) a very popular app and
    2) one that rewards you for using it while moving.
    So on the one hand it encourages people to go out more and take walks around their neighborhood, on the other hand it encourages idiots to play while driving.

    isn't that because the game makes you wonder all around? I'm pretty sure most people who use other games do so while in the couch or the toilet. It would be a pretty amazing story to read about an accident caused by playing candy crush while pooping

    Because fate is clearly a misogynist homophobe xenophobe White Nationalist Nazi who gets help from Russia.
