This has to be one of the dumbest articles I've seen on N4G to date, blaming a video game for people actions ? Sigh...

It's a common thing for right-sided people. They'd rather blame things than people. They'd rather ban things than educate.

There's probably a campaign to ban BBM on the back of this. Not try to reverse the cuts to the public services that's allowed this to happen. Not to address the unemployment issues of the area. Not to fix the notably corrupt [re: Murdoch] Met police. Not to actually fix the broken society that's produced so many chancers in the middle of deprived areas who're angry enough to do this.

The kids need punished, the economy needs fixed and the government needs to reshape it's policies to promote people & society instead of bailing out banks who made obviously stupid decisions or cancelling tax bills to massive companies.

Right-sided people? Oh please. The blame HARDLY comes from people of only one side of the spectrum.

GTA is not to blame.
What really happened is the chavs couldnt get football tickets so they can travel abroad and trash other towns and cities that werent their own, so they went berserk and started a riot.

Chavs are like zombies. You should arm your self and aim for the head.

Stupid people are to blame, obviously.
