Should have just bought the games second hand.

He really should have, since I imagine the price he fetched online without cases was probably at least $20 under retail anyway, so he would still be out some money.

I wouldn't be surprised if GTA somehow gets thrown into this. With the ridiculous spin that the media puts on a supposed crime/GTA relationship, I wouldn't be surprised if this was a headline:

"GTA sets poor example for police officer behavior, turns good cops bad"

I won't be surprised if it's the cop himself that goes "GTA made me do this."

It won't be the cop, but the defense attorney that's going to represent the cop.

Everything else is meh.............

With all the people who flip out over video games, you think this would make the local news.

When a person commits a crime revolving around video games, it's easy for the media and whatnot to point fingers at it. However in this case, you cannot point fingers at video games as it isn't the issue.

Sandwich Bender3073d ago

Oh, I absolutely agree that it isn't the issue, but crazy anti-video game activists always point the finger at video games when it isn't appropriate.

I have great admiration for this men, for he knows the true path to jail. I can understand burning games for your own use and not making sales off something that you dont own, but been this dumb deserves 2 things: 1) A good handshake and grab his rear, just to let him knows what hes going to be once he gets in jail. 2) What reality is and became part of what society as a whole has brought upon the civilians a society that its willing to separate its own from the corrupted government (he finally understand that he was nothing, but a servant to society and one that dont give a crap about him).
