Policeman Blames London Riots on GTA

The recent riots in London over the weekend are being linked video games.

An unnamed police constable was quoted in the London Evening Standard today saying, "Go home, get a takeaway and watch anything that happens on TV. These are bad people who did this. Kids out of control. When I was young it was all Pacman and board games. Now they're playing Grand Theft Auto and want to live it for themselves."

Riots began in Tottenham, north London, on Saturday night after a local man, reportedly armed with a replica gun, was shot and killed by police on Thursday.

So far, police have arrested over 160 people and charged 16 of them with crimes for burglary and possession of weapons.

The London riots are terrifying. They're quickly moving across the country as well.

It doesn't even compare to the Middle East. Saudi Arabia is stable, more or less, with the exception of a city called Qatif, but I don't go there (only once). And it's far anyways. In fact, all Gulf countries are stable, for the most part.

Jordan, Algeria, and Morocco have seen their share of riots, but not widespread, and only once things turned violent. Syria, Yemen, and Libya (especially) are blood baths. Bahrain's been quelled.

Egypt and Tunisia are full of riots still, but it's no longer violent.

Edit: Oh, and the fuzz can fuck right the hell off. I hate media sensationalism when it comes to making links between incidents and video games.

What an ignorant fuck. How can you possibly link this with a video game? GET A LIFE.

JT has already tried to link murder to GTA, why not riots too?

Instead of looking where the blame really belongs, like themselves, or just some crazy asswipe, it's a game that did it.
