Letter: Reader says Pokemon Go is dangerous

By Kalli Bailey
Personal Commentary
This is very important please read: This game (Pokemon Go) is very dangerous. A famous YouTuber witnessed a murder of a girl and called 911 after he witnessed it and was chased by the killer.

My dad had gotten the game and signed in with his email. Big mistake. The game developer used his email for stuff.

My uncle has this game and has no idea what will happen to him, but he has yet to delete it.

People have died playing this game. Someone somewhere was playing the game and stopped in the middle of a highway to do something on the game which caused a huge pile-up and the death of that person. If you have this game delete it now!!!!

Editor's note: That story about the famous YouTuber witnessing a murder while playing Pokemon Go was a hoax. But it turns out he was driving a taxi while playing games with his smart phone and recording video for YouTube. Driving while you're distracted is very dangerous, and you shouldn't play any game--or text, or read the newspaper, or put on makeup, or try to eat tacos--while behind the wheel of a car.
