I have always felt that the Grand Theft Auto video game series not only adds little to our society, but in fact is terribly degrading.
This feeling is even stronger after having spent half of April sitting on a jury that had to decide whether or not a 22-year-old man should go to jail for killing a 17-year old girl in a drive-by shooting.
Not that the game played any part in the trial or helped cause the murder, but after this experience I’m all for a decision by the Chicago Transit Authority deciding to pull ads for Grand Theft Auto IV, the latest installment in the series.
In the end, we decided the young man was guilty of second-degree murder. He could spend 25 years to life in jail.
Something this lady is now looking at for another bit of vehicular-related idiocy.
