Police claim that the youth showed no sign of mental instability while he was being questioned. He told police that he hadn't intended to kill the 54 year old driver. "He said he wanted to find out if it was as easy in real life to rob a taxi as it was in the game," said the police chief.
A government official with Thailand's Cultural Surveillance Center told Reuters: "This time-bomb has already exploded and the situation could get worse... Today it is a cab driver, but tomorrow it could be a video game shop owner."If an 18-year-old --that's an adult, not a child -- can't understand that robbing a taxi driver isn't the best idea, it's not because a particular video game has warped his mind.
