A sixth-grader from Osaka, Japan, is in protective juvenile custody after accessing an online game site with somebody else’s password. The 11-year-old girl is accused of violating Japan’s unauthorised Computer Access Law after figuring out the name, birthday and password of a 12-year-old school girl in Yamanashi Prefecture.
The game in question is free-to-play game Ameba Pigg.
The sixth-grader told authorities, “I was jealous of the in-game items the middle school girl had.”
A life of crime at 11 kicked off with something that could be handled with some responsible parenting and understanding police officers. But why allow that when there’s tax money to spend and this kid broke the law?
Catch all those kids, because they’re the real threat!
