Police link cop killing to Video game.



accordiing to many sources, the early show says that they indiacte that a cop killing were linked to the "Grand Theft Auto" video games. In Alabama a cop has been killed and the coperate is a teenager, and they link it to him playing "Grand Theft Auto". A man from a broadcasting company and a man who wrote a book about the media this day came in and talked, and they said that it sounds reasonable, because if a already andgry teen plays this game for 100s of hours in his lifetime, it might trigger something in his mind. Sources say that the the brother of the cop that has been killed is sewing Gamestop, Wal*Mart, Sony, and the companys who made GTA, including R* productions.

Gamestop and Wal*Mart said that the lawsuits are bogus, because there are millions who bought this game and are still abiding by the law. The cops brother said that he is very pissed at this game and it's marketers becasue of their game, he can never see his Brother again, because of all the killing and random violence in these killer-simulater games.

Also, ESRP raised a red flag on their new game, San andreas, because they said that with a cheat code, you can unlock very explict sex scenes where you control the sex, which is exactly like porn, and they say because of this, the game seserves a Ao (Adults Only) rating, but they said that even though this can only be accessed by a cheat code, the cheat code is posted ov teen oriented websites, allowing them to access it. They say that GTA will lose major sales if it has a Ao rating because those types of games are not sold by major retailers. So pretty much all they can do is put a parental warnign on the game, and all you can really do is not buy it for your kid, but anyone under 18 shouldn't be playing those games to begin with, which resulted in the cop killing as said above.

heres the detailed story

I won't take my time to flame the thread but the way the man will get his justice will be to sue the sh1t out of like 5 huge retailers? Sure, he won't see his brother again, but I guess he'll be happy when he lines his house with blood-money. The American Dream has crumbled to ashes.

the reason he's suing the two companies is because they sold 2 versions of the game to the kid that murdered his brother.

Like it'll do anything. I know if I worked at one of those stores I'd sell the game too, the person that sold it probably gets commission on the things he/she sells anyway.

It's not Rockstar's fault or Walmart/Gamestop/EB's fault if the kid that plays their games is a crazed lunatic that will go out and kill someone. What you can watch on television nowadays is worse anyway.

I know that the kid was a minor when he bought it, so they shouldn't have sold it to him in the first place.

I understand that, and it is wrong in the sense that they sold it, but I'll put a good deal money down on the fact that the kid would have asked his mother or even an 18+ year old friend or someone he met outside the store to buy it for him. Hell, I can buy alcohol with a few minutes of work and I'm 5 years under-age, buying a game that's intended for non-minors is cake.

I know that some people say that the thing happened like this.

the kid pulled a cops gun and shot him twice, his partner comes to his rescue, he was shot twice, then the kid took the keys to the police cruiser,, he walks outside, shoots a kid three times, runs off in the Police cruiser.

now all that you do on GTA.

It's too bad I'm sane. The kid that did it is an absolute idiot that deserves the guilt he'll get, if any, from killing an innocent man and any jail-sentence coming his way. (Or some juvenile sentencing crap) Millions of people play these games and go on with their daily lives, it's just these craze-minded morons that ruin it for the rest of the public.

Thereason he's suing the companies is because he is a sad idiot who has been convinced by popular culture in America that someone must be to blame, and that that someone is a corperation with huge ammounts of money.

Why isn't he suing the kid who killed his brother? - Not enough money

Why isn't he suing every TV channel in the USA for broadcasting violence? -

Why is he not suing every author who wrote about murder?

Why is he not suing every single news outlet in the USA for reporting other cop-killings?

Because everyone knows that watching violence on TV, or reading about it doesn't make you go out and kill people, but playing video games does!

I'm sure the guys dead brother is so happy that his death is being used as an excuse to try to screw some money out of some companies.

Guess what seen a shooting in a movie ?
Or a TV show ??
Or read any books recently ???

To suggest that the solution to the odd person who clearly has no understanding of consequences and limits is to remove all media which suggest excessive act is plain daft !!

Sorry for the loss of life.
But get guns off the streets, get RESPECT for the police through community involvement and give the kids somethign BETTER to do in the local community woudl seem MUCH more useful than removing fames, movies, TV and books from the masses !!
