Never passing up an opportunity to lambast video games, Florida attorney Jack Thompson compared gamers to hitmen in a statement involving a brutal crime where two teenagers killed another teen for not letting them borrow his car. Thompson made the link to his favorite game, Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto, and asked local police to look for violent video games, then making a statement saying "Nobody shoots anybody in the face unless you're a hit man or a video gamer."
