Slip a Little Unsupported Causation into That Story, Please; I Need To Know What To Think and To Implore My Government to Do Something

3 Teens Accused Of Kidnapping 10-Year-Old Boy: Boys Were Playing Video Games:

The case started when the boy was at his grandmother’s home and went next door to play video games with the teens.

Police said the teens stopped playing the games and started a real-life drama with real weapons.

The newspaper offers the hint of causation; had the young man gone next door to play Parcheesi, would we have heard about it?
