8 Year Old Kid Distraught Over Stepdad’s Deployment Probably Should Not Be Playing Call of Duty
The story, as reported by the LA Weekly:
Jack is eight years old (corrected in LA Weekly‘s update from six).
Jack plays some form of Call of Duty.
Jack’s step-dad is being deployed to Iraq.
At school, Jack drew a picture of something having to do with Call of Duty and wrote a suicide-related statement on the picture.
Jack was strapped into an ambulance, driven to a hospital, and put on a 72-hour “psychiatric hold.”
