    It's pretty sad that his parents don't get up to get him breakfast and make sure he gets on the bus.

    How can he learn driving from GTA? OK the A Button is gas and you steer with the right joystick. Last time I checked my car didn't have any of that stuff.

    And now I got this mental image of this kid strapping boxes to his feet to reach the pedals, calling everyone "Doctor Jones" as he drives...

    And yeah, I thought that inclusion of the link to video games was very sloppy... There had to be more to it than that.

    Wow, what a dumb kid. I know he's only 6, but come on, he could have at least told his mom that he missed the bus, and she would've taken him to school instead.

    The 6 yr-old might as well go ahead and take Drivers Ed.

    I like how the major difference of the two articles is how one links it to video games and the other doesn't.

    How likely is it that the kid actually said he learned to drive from playing those games anyways. I can imagine it, frankly, but it seems more like something investigators would get him to say. The kid "learned" from watching his parents. How would he have gotten so far otherwise? As someone pointed out, cars don't have joysticks or buttons.

    Even so, shame on the parents for letting him play them. 6-year olds + Grand Theft Auto. -_-. They weren't awake for their kid, for whatever reason, too.

    Not to get too political, but I played Mortal Kombat during the days of when it came out and people complainted saying it should be an adult videogame.

    My parents taught me what right and wrong. During those days I actually got a butt-whooping if I did wrong. Crap like this wouldn't been feasible to do for me.

    The rating system is crap. The persons should have a rating system. If they are smart enough to know right and wrong and have enough of an independent thought to decide that they are doing something because they want to instead of copying something they've seen, or heard.


    But look, my parents worked so they couldn't guide me to the school bus when I was 6. My brother (1 yr older) and I walked to the stop, in freaking Compton, CA!!! Since My brother and I could do it. Why that kid can't. This may be a sign of the limited independence in the newer generation, or lack of guidance.

    The kid should have wake up his mom. The kid should have missed a day. But the parent should not have been charged. You should be responsible for your kid's actions 24/7. Remember that kid who opened a toy store at 3 a.m.
    What? Parent should watch their kids in this highly stressed, overworked living conditions.

    Funny, how the parent is charged. Yet the parents of a 4 yro that shot his babysitter with a shotgun because his foot was accidentally step on was not charged, nor the kid (Happened in a trailer home).

    I am seriously beginning to be overtly concerned about who's driving on the same road as I am.
