They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well, tell that to the police force of Fairfax County, who are outraged because of the poor depictions of them and their cruisers in Grand Theft Auto. Again? That's two for GTA today!
No one killed somebody this time, nor did anyone else find ecstacy in the game package. This time, the cops are griping about their depictions in the controversial game. It began when some YouTube users uploaded gameplay clips, showing what GTA is best known for: civilian-slaying, car-jacking, and hooker-honking.
"The Fairfax County Police Department finds the videos in very poor taste," said spokesperson Don Gotthardt. "One of the reasons we find it in poor taste is because of the way the officers are depicted." The force has already contacted YouTube for removal of the clips, while Rockstar Games made no response to inquiries.
