Aspiring Pokemon Dorks To Take Pok-E-Mon To Whole 'Nother Level

The one is so young, bound to be popular in the pen.

Police said Sunday they thwarted what could have been a massacre at the Pokemon World Championship held here this weekend.

Boston police arrested James Austin Stumbo, 27, and Kevin Norton, 18, on Saturday “because of threats of violence made over social media.” When police searched Stumbo and Norton’s vehicle parked in a garage several blocks from the Pokemon event, they found a shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle, a hunting knife, and 250 rounds of ammunition.

Stumbo and Norton are charged with several firearm charges including unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.

1 Greetings:

Because sometimes "Stumbo" just isn't enough of a hint.

2 I'm confused. They weren't carrying the arms with them. It was in a car a few blocks away.

What exactly was it that made authorities think that they were up to no good?

3 I believe they had made threating comments on a pokemon message board/forum while talking about the convention. I also had heard they found a 12 gauge shotgun on one of them as they tried to enter the convention.

4 Batman or Pokemon - mass murder is still mass murder.

6 The alleged threat was a facebook post with two guns lying on the trunk of a car.

James Stumbo: "Kevin Norton and I are ready for worlds Boston here we come!!!"
Joey Faux: "Good luck!"
Kevin Norton: "With killing the competition?"
Joey Faux: "Haha Yes."

This is enough for the cops to ask a few questions, but it seems more like a joke than a threat. Unfortunately for them, the police in Boston are the same ones who can't tell a Lite Brite from a bomb.

7 Look at those pouting lips. It won;t be a pop-sickle he will be sucking on. Poor boy, hope he doesn't have hemorrhoids. What's that screem about? Oh yes his first time.

8 Will have to wait for the real details - like what all they posted online for the cops to bother looking for them at a pokemon convention.
