I pledge allegiance, to my lawyer...

Prostitutes call for ban on GTA
Sex workers cry foul, say game "accrues points to players for the depiction of rape and murder of prostitutes."

The Grand Theft Auto franchise is getting attacked from all angles. Joining the ranks of politicians, policemen, and attorneys in their crusade to see the game lifted from shelves are the nation's sex workers. On its Web site, the Sex Workers Outreach Project USA is asking parents to assist them in calling for a ban of Take-Two Interactive's controversial game.


What is with this? I don't really like the game anyways, but shouldn't parents be monitoring what their children can and cannot do? Why is everyone so up in arms about a game? I have played violent games, and watched violent cartoons most of my life, and still do, but I am not about to go kill a hooker. Why can't people accept that video games don't kill people, guns don't kill people, but people who have not been raised right, and haven't been taught the right morals DO kill people. Oh and Chuck Norris.
