Default more on the GTA III shootings

Gaming-Age:

Rockstar and Take Two have asked a federal judge to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the families of two people shot by teenagers who claimed ther were imitating Grand Theft Auto. The company claims the victims' families were trying to hold them liable "based on the expressive content of the video game."

Responding Oct. 29 in U.S. District Court, Rockstar and Take-Two contend that such ideas and concepts as well as the "purported psychological effects" on the Buckners are protected by the First Amendment's free-speech clause.

A lawyer who represents the victims dismissed the claim, saying he would seek to move the case back into state court for consideration under Tennessee's consumer protection act.

The Victim's lawyer is doing anything he can to keep the case when he knows the case won't go anywhere since they no solid base to keep it in the federal forum. And the state judge will dismiss the case for the same reasons. What kind if ignorant idiot is that lawyer?

OMG, I still can't believe this crap. There's a word for people who can't distinguish between fantasy and reality. It's called "Insane." I can't believe that taxpayer's money is being wasted on this; hasn't enough precedent been set?? Ozzy wasn't guilty of inspiring suicide and neither was Judas Priest. Mike Judge and MTV weren't responsible for that kid setting his trailer on fire. The Wachowski Brothers weren't responsible for Columbine. GTA3 isn't responsible for whacked out kids taking up arms.

The really revolting thing is that this suit is being being brought by these kids' parents. Uhh, *HELLO??* If you losers had bothered to explain to your children that TV, movies and Video Games are fantasies and while fun to experience, shouldn't be emulated because they are not real, then maybe this wouldn't be an issue. Where the hell is personal accountability these days?? "The video game made me do it"?! People need to get their goddamn heads out of their asses.

Late.

I completely agree, Glue.

It is ridiculous how you can blame something you do in real life on a video game...

That's like molesting a child and saying you saw on T.V. Michael Jackson got away with it so you figured you could.

Like he said, take responsibility for your own actions, stop blaming other people for your dumb mistakes, and the greedy lawyers out there for say video games containing violence are dangerous for children to play? That is complete B.S., where are their parents? Don't they have 5 minutes to explain to them that even though in a video is legal, will get you in a trouble in reality!

And shooting video games do not hold much similarity to real life, you telling me holding a however many pound rifle is [BOLD]ANY[/BODY] way similar to holding a 5 ounce controller and using the joystick to aim? Yeah, that is what I thought. GG.
