As we reported earlier, the Peaceoholics had scheduled a protest outside of Take-Two Interactive’s Manhattan offices yesterday. Protest signs read "Stop Bully Now!" and "Prosecute Rockstar Games. They are felons." among other things.
Moten was quoted saying, "It (video game violence) desensitizes them and makes them think that these acts are alright- it’s alright to whup a woman, it’s alright to steal a car, it’s alright to mess with a prostitue, it’s alright to curse and use drugs."
The Peaceholics had demanded the following list for Rockstar.
-Not to release Bully under any circumstances
-Volunteer to sell its violent and sexually explicit games in adult video stores only.
-Let parents return Grand Theft Auto for a full refund until they do a national awareness campaign to educate parents of content and possible effects.
-Create a fund for victims of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and car-jackings, etc.
-Make a national apology for misleading and lying to children, parents, and legislators about their intentions and causing insurance premiums to sky rocket.
-Give a written response within five business days of receipt of these demands.
