I really hope that we live in the same area cause the exact same thing happened where I live.Problem is that a lot of parents are so behind in the technology that they cannot control what their kids do. Back in the day before video games it was the same. A kid is grounded he/she is pissed off and think are treated unfair and run away. Except that to non tech savvy parents a bedroom and window locks are a lot easier than setting parental guards.What they need is to educate the parents on how to control how much they kids play and what they can do. Blizz has some of this already installed, but maybe the ability to open a ticket should be reserved only to the credit card holder not the kid him/her selfThe GM though acting completely correctly. He called 911 which is what any of you should do if you think someone is suicidal but cannot help him/her get help yourself or through a friend/relative. Was it the right decision of the 911 operator to send a police unit to arrest the kid maybe/maybe not but I doubt it was the decision of the GM.But if a person is suicidal they need immediate professional intervention. If the kid is threatening suicide but is not suicide it is misdemeanor. If he was suicidal he would not have been put in a jail. He would have been put under mental care professionals. My guess is is that this is probably not the first time the cops have been to that house and also where do you think he learned to get things by threats? No not from Marylin Manson or Eminem but they are such a nice scapegoat.
