It's amazing that some people have jobs. Not just normal jobs, high profile jobs that can impact this country in a negative manner, and they have all the power in the world to do so, regardless of whether or not they're honest about it. Nancy Grace is one of those people.
After picking up on the topic of the upcoming Eidos (not Idos as the show's transcript states) 25 to Life, her one-sided, absurd debate went nowhere, barely giving the only person who was actually defending the title a second of her time. What follows are the important aspects of the debate, with the incorrect or blanket statements pulled aside for debunking:
Now there's 25 to Life, and the object is to kill cops.
Partly true. You can also play as a cop on the other side of the law. No mention of that was made anywhere during the program.
And I also want to show everybody one after the next, after the next police officers that lost their life in the line of duty! Now, this is a video game, and you're seeing at the bottom of this screen, real-life cops that lost their lives trying to protect you and me.
What does a list of real life police officers have to do with a video game? Player's are gunning down a mass of pixels, textures, and polygons. If you want to do a show praising those who gave their lives in duty, please do so. Until then, showing that list has no purpose.
Jack Thompson: Nancy, there are three cops that are dead in Alabama because of Grand Theft Auto by City, two cops and a dispatcher. So we know that these cop-killing games are leading to these killings.
For those who don't know, Thompson is a crooked lawyer that somehow finds a way on television every time these debates spring up. As far as I'm aware (someone please correct me if I'm wrong), he has never, ever won a case against a game company. He saps money from parents who believe they're not at fault for their child's problems, promises multi-million dollar settlements, sends them to court, and loses.
