An Ohio gamer upset about a $1.50 bet while playing Call of Duty: WWII online was sentenced Friday to 15 months in prison for recruiting a prankster to make a bogus emergency call that resulted in the fatal shooting of a Kansas man by police.
Ann: Mental problems are NOT the only reason people are living on the streets. I am 78 yrs. old, worked all my life after high school and had good, avg.-paying jobs. I now live on social security, which until two years ago, was fine. I had a nice small apt., paid the normal utilities, etc. Then the cost of apts. in my city went through the roof, with no warning. We are now covered up in high-price housing that people like me can no longer afford. Example: rent went from $495/mo. to $675/mo. One more rent increase and I'll be on the street...literally. I'm old, not married, no children...which all goes against my situation. Most of you will say the common things like why didn't you save. why don't you have family, why didn't you get higher paying jobs, why, why, why. It's because I have always been low income, but have paid my way and haven't asked anyone for anything....until now. What do the millions of people like me do now? We can't afford to live in America.
