Police Suspect Murder With Knect Boxing



Be careful what it looks like you're doing near the windows of your home -- it could lead to police raiding your house late at night.
A group of people in Sweden were playing a boxing game on Kinect at night. The police were called around midnight after someone walked by and saw shadows of punches being thrown. This led to a raid of the house by six to eight police officers who were under the impression that someone was being murdered, UK news outlet Metro reports.
"It was pretty embarrassing when they came in and asked who we were attacking," said Robert Johansson, who was among the six people inside. "It was just a computer game."
A Stockholm police spokesperson said, "We always react to calls regarding domestic violence. Luckily this time it was a false alarm." Hopefully the door to the house wasn't busted up too badly when the officers swarmed in.
I hope we've all learned a valuable lesson from this: Don't murder. Also, avoid your Kinect-playing shadows from being seen by passers-by late at night.

That's nuts. I guess the police were just doing their job and I guess I could see why someone would think there was something violent going on if they on;y saw the shadows.
