Default 25 to Life Controversy Heats Up

Joystiq is reporting that anti-gaming attorney Jack Thompson, in a letter to California Attorney General Bill Lockyer, has suggested that police officers seize and destroy all copies of 25 to Life. Already disbarred in one state, it's not surprising that Jack has clearly misinterpreted California law:<blockquote>California Civil Code Section 3495 enables and authorizes each and every law enforcement officer to walk into any video game store, without a court order, to seize and destroy each and every copy of 25 to Life. California law treats this as acceptable 'abatement' of a public nuisance by parties particularly endangered by such a nuisance... In the next six days I intend to take to the public airwaves in California, and to use other means, to encourage all law enforcement officers in California to in fact go into video game stores and seize all copies of 25 to Life."</blockquote>
Thanks for the free publicity, Jacko.

Like you guys weren't totally hoping this would happen. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Controversy = $$$

The downside is Thompson also gets more free publicity.

This game will sell so much if they actually start destroying it. Its going to be like the number one most popular underground game.
