Default 25 to Life Being Talked on CNN

Hello,

I was just watchin CNN and they had 25 to Life on there. They were saying how it may cause problems for some people as in the game, you shoot cops and they were talking about how thats not cool because some families have had there fathers killed in the line of duty and all that kinds of stuff. Could this cause some problems of the game being distributed and such? Possiby Banned?

Hmmm. Let's see. The religeous right controls the white house full of NRA supporters.

Sure!

They'll be the first to blame anything else.....


Anyone remember the Album by Body Count (Ice T Punk-Hardcore Band) and the Song "Cop Killer" and the fallout there?

They were talking about boycotting the game last night. I hope everything goes ok for the producers and such.

They don't understand! The game isn't about cops and gangsters, it's about "law enforcement officials and criminals!" It's different!

This stuff never gets very far, so I can't say I'm worried.

Plus it's ridiculous to ban this when kids around the world still play cops and robbers in their backyards. I know I did - I shot me a few pigs [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Also about the families who've lost police family members: many people have lost family members in war yet I hear nothing about banning all the war games out there - including BF2 which is modern day, happening now sort of thing.

It just gives politicans something to get on the soap box over, and gives normal people a chance to have a little bit of drama in their lives. I'm not saying I'm not respectful of their loses, especially in the line of duty, but give me a break.

It seems like people these days look for reasons to be offended.

I hope the senators do call for a boycott of the game. Every game they do that with seems to get phenominal amounts of press and usually it increases the game's sales exponentially. People just have to see what all the buzz is about. It's human nature.

Hearing people blame games for their problems make me mad. I swear some people have single-digit IQs.
