Hit-and-Run Driver Strikes Peds on Venice Beach

Recommended Posts

JOSEPH X

Video: http://www.hlntv.com/video/2013/08/04/one-...ach-hit-and-run

 

 

One person was killed and 11 others injured, some seriously, when a hit-and-run driver ploughed into a pavement packed with hundreds of seaside revellers on the Venice Beach boardwalk in Los Angeles.

 

The victim died at a hospital a few hours after the Saturday evening crash, Police Lieutenant Andy Neiman said.

 

Security video shows the man parking his black car alongside the seaside boardwalk, surveying the scene for several minutes before getting back into the car and speeding into the crowd. It shows hundreds of people walking lazily or sitting at cafes before the black car suddenly appears and sends them scrambling for safety.

 

Let's sift through all the articles on this to see if there's any dumbass references to GTA.

You've already said it, dumb references to GTA. It's not worth giving them any importance.

I think this is gonna be HUGE!!! It's all on the news out here in LA.

 

The references to GTA are gonna be littered. He just drove his car aiming at ppl. trying to kill them. I've done that sh*t on EVERY GTA i've played (III, VC, SA, IV, TLaD, BoGT).

 

I mean you can actually do that on the game! They gonna get hit big in the media. They about to go HAM!!! I think it could maybe affect the release date.

 

We might have a BIG problem on our hands.

 

THIS is the news report with eye witness interviews: http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/video?id=9194747&pid=9194654

The conspiracy nut in me thinks Rockstar is somehow behind it. Think about it, they paid off some journalists to a big write-up for the original GTA, saying how controversial it was...

Sure, and Dan Houser was the driver of that car.

 

 

Btw, why don't the media that is always blaming GTA for everything take a look at, for example, the Hollywood cinema they proably enjoy and applaud. It's full of sociopaths and violence but they don't give a f*ck about it.

Jesus guys when was the last time you guys have actually seen GTA being headlined for the cause of crimes..?

 

 

I swear if anyone's keeping that bs alive it's YOU guys who keep bringing it up. Ever since the whole Jack Thompson ordeal I've rarely heard anyone excusing their actions to GTA.. Anyone with half a brain knows perfectly well someone who'd do such a gross thing has serious mental issues rooted much deeper than any video game could dig..

There will likely be several media references to GTA, but I don't think it will have an effect on the game. I seriously doubt this was motivated by video games.

 

This jerk did this AFTER the game has been rated, but the release is far enough away that the media hype should blow over by September 17. It sounds bad, but in a weird way I am relieved this crap happened now, rather than before the rating or around the time of release.

Yeah I agree, the only reason the media gets these ideas is when we all start posting about it. If everyone remained shushed, maybe they wouldn't notice. Don't bring attention to something if there is none yet.
