Grown man threatens to shoot 11-year-old who beat him in game

Everyone has hobbies, but whatever those  may be it’s always important to keep it in perspective. It’s not life or death, much like Annie said, “the sun will come out tomorrow.”

Well, for one man he may not get to see many more sunrises, at least from outside a jail cell. That’s because 45-year-old Michael Aliperti, a New Yorker, threatened to shoot an 11-year-old who bested him in the online game, Fortnite. He was arrested just before 2 a.m. Thursday morning.

Apparently, the two had been playing the online game for several months and Aliperti had had enough when he threatened the child’s life.  He reportedly sent the child threatening text and voice messages. And like most sane people would, the 11-year-old reported the man’s threats against his life and the rest is history.

Now because of the man’s stupidity and being entirely way too consumed in a virtual world, he’s been charged with second-degree aggravated harassment and acting in a manner to injure a child.

Whatever you enjoy doing, whether it be playing video games, strumming the guitar, confusing liberals by stating facts, reading or whatever, just remember: it’s probably not important enough to go to jail over.
