There are lots of movies about morons who think they are vampires. There was a movie made to sensationalize the murders committed by Rod Ferrell, vampire-game-obsessed teen, who killed his girlfriend’s parents, and ran off with her, for a short period of time, before being captured by police. Well, in a similar, yet more pedophilic situation, one man will spend some time enjoying psychiatric evaluation, and beautiful views that feature bars, and fences. Two players of the vampire game Reign of Blood met, fell in love, and exchanged addresses; a typical romance. Unfortunately, the two people involved, were 14 and 28. And one of the was a psychotic member of the US Navy. Christopher Rodriguez, obviously weak of mind (along with being incredibly ugly), was driven mad with love for his 14-year old vampire mistress, sorry, wife, according to her, and drove to her parents’ house in Virginia to sedate them and kidnap her. At one point, after his arrest, Christopher’s grandfather, who I guess is senile or something, said “He always said many vampires were good, and he was a good vampire.”
Christopher Rodriguez, 28, and on disability from the US Navy, went to Virginia with prescription sleeping pills. He met the girl at a Halloween party, slipped her crushed sleeping pills to hide in her parents’ food, and then followed her from the party. Later that night, he threw rocks at her window, trying to attract her attention, –but when she told him to leave, he promised to return for her at some point, –reports say, when she turned 18, and then took off again. The girl later “realized he was serious” and told her mother, who called the police. The rest is history, but you can get all the details here. The media will naturally blame the game site, but the owner spoke true when he said he hoped “that the parents of our younger gamers are monitoring their online behavior and contacts.” Key word: contacts.
First off (look! off, not of), all I can say about everyone involved here is: stupid, stupid, STUPID. Parents, –your daughter is being exposed to the Internet; if she’s under 18, your computer should be in a public area of the home, with as much through-traffic as possible. Don’t you morons realize, that if your daughter had been a -fraction- more stupid than she already is, and let that psycho in your house, he could have KILLED you? As I pointed out earlier, this HAS happened! Girls, all females under 18, you never, EVER meet or give personal phone numbers or addresses to ANYONE online. You do not know these people, and even women over 18 know better than to give any personal information to anyone. Girls over 18, if you are planning to meet someone, do so in a public place, and when you drive home, I suggest you check for a tail. Avoid the crazies, because in real life, boys and girls, crazy people, and sociopaths, will not spare you because you’re a kid. In fact, they’ll probably do even more horrible shit to you, because you’re a kid. Parents, educate and protect your children: do not let your kids make the rules about their Internet access.
i think that girl is just 1 brain cell short of a real brain. why on earth would she agree to go out, or meet, this guy who is from the internet?! seriously, was she thinking of getting her self killed (or worse?) or did she honestly think this guy would turn out ok? and as for her parents, they SUCK at their job and need to get a refreshers course on how to protect their kid from the psycho’s roaming the internet.
Have to agree, here. I think a certain amount of naivety is normal, but at 14, a young woman should know the dangers of talking to someone so much older, and so clearly unbalanced.
Before going around pointing your finger at others and yelling “stupid”, you may want to run your articles through SPELL CHECK, and proof read your stuff more carefully. There are so many errors, I lost count.
(I.E. “First of, all I can say about everyone involved” Should have been “First OFF,”
As for the message behind it, I agree! Parents need to be watching the kids. Teens should not be allowed internet access in their bedrooms until the age of 18. Until then, they should be using the P.C. in a common room.
As for blaming the Site this activity took place, I cannot see how any rational person could hold it responsible, as this young girl misrepresented herself as an adult for a number of months and to several other players. The game cannot stop people from exchanging phone numbers, email addresses or home addresses.
The blame lies squarely on 1) the Parents, for not educating her on internet dangers, and not monitoring her contacts, and 2.) The nutjob who decided that he was going to pursue the girl AFTER her true age was revealed. Possibly even the US Navy could have some share of the blame, seeing as he most likely isn’t “right” and they allowed him to be free, if they did know he was “psychotic” as you stated. But to say that the gaming site can be blamed in any capacity makes no sense. People are basically on the honor system when joining a game and discussing their Real life age, and when people fail to do so, or out right lie, then this cannot be anyone’s responsibility other than the parties involved directly. I did have the brief and unfortunate pleasure of having some contact with the girl on Reign of Blood, and she was very much an aggressor on the site. She was removed and blocked from several of the covens in the game for her behavior, and intent to “Cyber”. In my book, this girl and her family, got off very lucky, and maybe learned a valuable lesson, hopefully, enough to not repeat this mistake. (Perhaps her parents have unplugged, if they have any sense, and seem uninterested or unable to monitor their children.)
The guy involved was thankfully stopped before he could claim a victim, (that we know of), and may get some help that he clearly needs.
You’re talking to me about grammar? And then turn around and say you agree with me? Are you bipolar or something? Before you go around trying to be intelligent, stop, take your meds, and relax for a few minutes. Drink some water.
Ok guys lets get some things straight here. What you all should know is that she is not so innocent here herself. Now that is not to say that he should not take any blame at all, but she led him on just as much as he led her, if not more so. Now with that said, you should all know that not all of the facts were in this story. Anyways thats all I have to say on the matter.
