Police say GTA mod’s realistic patrol cars are “in poor taste”

Washington DC police are upset over a GTA modder’s authentic depictions of cop cars.

They even went so far as to cry to NBC about it, which, in true fashion, jumped on the news like a rabid foxhound.

Pulled from the report:

“Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery. But don’t tell that to some local police jurisdictions that are upset over YouTube videos depicting their cruisers in a video game…

“One video even shows a digital officer getting out of a Fairfax County Police cruiser to gun down citizens on the street.

“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.”

Sorry folks. It’s slow this morning.
