Classic case of deadly streets.... Guy should have opened the door and anticipated the knife!
A Counter-Strike player in France has spent six months plotting a revenge attack against a man who beat him in an in-game knife fight. His eventual revenge was not in-game.
20 year-old Julien Barreaux, from Cambrai, had his Counter-Strike character "knifed" in a game late last year against another man, known only as "Mikhael". Enraged at this blight against his talents, Barreaux spent six months tracking him down in the real world.
When he eventually found the victim, Barreaux knocked on the guy's front door, then "plunged a kitchen knife into his chest" when Mikhael opened it to greet him. He missed his heart by an inch.

Six months of stalking plus...
A local police officer told the courts "Barreaux was arrested within the hour and told us he had wanted to see his rival wiped out for killing off his character."
...this? How is this not attempted murder? Premeditation plus intent.
It is possible that he put up some bullshit defense of being under the spell of the evil videogame, but surely that would put him in the crazy house even longer. Given that even the sentencing judge called this psycho a "menace", what is the reason for the light sentence?
