a foxholer sent me what the ny daily news had to say…
Callous Pokémon Go users are desecrating sacred sites across the country — including the 9/11 Memorial in lower Manhattan — all because they can’t stop playing the addictive game.
Pokémon Go players are searching for Charmanders, Bulbasaurs, Squirtles and other in-game creatures at the solemn site honoring the more than 2,700 people killed in the attacks on the World Trade Center.
…and then they crashing into pedestrians looking for pokemon:
Pokémon Go players are hurting themselves in their confusion.
An upstate New York Pokéfanatic was playing the wildly popular game in Auburn on Tuesday night when he veered off the road and crashed into a tree.
There were no serious injuries in the clumsy crash, which damaged the front of the wannabe Pokémon master’s car, cracking the windshield.
“Luckily the driver was not seriously injured, but this is an example of how easily accidents can occur when someone is engaged in the game and not paying attention,” Auburn police chief Shawn Butler said in a statement.
When police and the Auburn fire department showed up at about 10:44 p.m., the 28-year-old driver told officials he was distracted by the game when he plowed into the tree.
He suffered cuts to both his legs and was brought to the Auburn Community Hospital for minor injuries.
This is the first major crash related to Pokémon Go. A 15-year-old Pennsylvania girl was hit by a car while crossing a busy intersection on Tuesday at about 5 p.m., her mother told reporters.
“Kids don’t just cross a highway,” her mother Tracy Nolan told WTAE. “This thing had her walking across a highway to find a Pokémon. When she called and said that she was hit by a car, I blamed the game, because she would not have been out of my house. My daughter is a hermit.”
Autumn Deiseroth, who suffered a collarbone and foot injury, as well as several cuts and bruises, also blamed the game, saying the app shouldn’t have Pokémon near busy roads.
A spokesperson for the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC told reporters this wasn’t the first patient they had seen because of Pokémon Go.
even though some are being reckless with it,
i’m actually allowing this game.
it has the cubs out and about,
others are outside exploring,
and everyone is coming together for the fun of it.
who knew pokemon was going to make a massive comeback?
i sure didn’t.
now i’m here researching a damn raichu and a wiggytuff.
lowkey: the way my laziness is step up,
i only be playing this when i leave the crib.
i feel like all the good pokemon are down in the city.
