Internet Restrictions Inspire Attack, Police Say

Think you’re passionate about your Internet time? A Florida teen is accused of violently attacking his family after they cut back on his computer privileges.

The 15-year-old evidently logged on and noticed that he didn’t have the same level of access he used to. So, like any normal kid, police say he beat the living hell out of his brother with a cane, then went after his mom with a knife. Officers say he only pushed her, though, and never actually used the blade. What a nice young lad.

The kid’s now facing charges of battery and aggravated assault. Of course, the jail guards are going to be in for a rough surprise when this little bugger discovers that his cell isn’t Web-enabled.
