A Tottenham police officer has claimed that the London riots that saw buildings burn across the capital over the weekend were inspired by Grand Theft Auto. That's according to UK trade bible MCV, which reports that the officer suggested to media this morning that the game had acted as a "catalyst" for the events.
A member of the Evening Standard newspaper confirmed that the GTA quotes were to be included in an article in tonight's edition of the free paper. The source would not rule out, however, the possibility of alterations being made before the paper hits presses.
In the same report, an Enfield resident is also credited with saying that GTA contributed to the civil unrest.
The Rockstar gangster series has, of course, been dragged to centre stage by the UK press following violent outbreaks in the past.
While the Daily Star didn't blame the killing spree that Raoul Moat embarked upon last July on GTA but it did claim that a GTA edition based on the horrific events was planned.http://www.computerandvideogames.com/314617/gta-inspired-tottenham-brixton-riots-suggests-police-officer/
