Who says GTA causes violence?


An 18-year-old kid in the UK was walking home after purchasing a copy of GTA IV when he was mugged and beaten by two ruffians who stole his game and broke his jaw. They were caught, likely for racking up a two-star wanted level. They should have hidden down with the bike in that alley.

OK, this is getting way too real. You guys take care of each other out there, alright?

The story here isn’t that it was GTA IV that the kid got beaten up for, it was that he had something valuable the someone else wanted, and so they took it by force. This wouldn’t be news if it was, say, the new Mario Cart Kart game, but that’s how things work.
