Shoot to Kill: Colombian Crackdown

We initially dismissed this as a belated April Fools joke, but just received confirmation from Codemasters' US press agent that this is not the case, here goes. Codemasters to Blow Away FPS Market with Shoot to Kill: Colombian Crackdown is the hyperbole-laden press release announcing a new first-person shooter for PC and next (current?) generation consoles that is being created at an internal Codemasters development studio. The announcement has few factual details on the game, but here is an excerpt on its premise:

Shoot to Kill: Colombian Crackdown has a deep and gripping plot of deception, betrayal and revenge, coupled with intense and refined gameplay. With a modern-day setting, the game plunges players deep into Colombia’s drug underworld as Drug Enforcement Administration Officers. The experience charges players with uncovering and bringing to justice, individuals and gangs involved in the trade and trafficking of cocaine.

Unless this game suggests or portrays ALL Colombian people as drug-crazed underworld figures, why should Colombians be upset by it? I'm not upset when a white American male is shown as a mass-murderer. It doesn't mean ALL white American males are mass murderers.

Bad thing happen ALL over the world. Are you saying that people can't set any sort of negative activities in ANY country for fear that the law abiding residents of that country will be lumped in with the bad guys?
