Jailed Bohemia Interactive Devs Denied Bail

Eurogamer has word from a Czech news report that the pair of Bohemia Interactive developers arrested in September in Myrina, Greece for Espionage have been refused bail. They are now awaiting trial, and word is this process is being delayed considerably by strikes in Greece, though apparently "strike season" is over. The pair's families are now apparently attempting to get the Czech president and prime minister to step in, claiming their foreign ministry has let them down. "Our boys no longer tell us on the phone that it's alright, that they're handling it," one of the mothers said. "After the court's decision we only hear from them something that no parent ever wants to hear: Mom, dad, please save us."

I say it again, in the scheme of things, Greece just does not matter. They know this. And this is just some way to puff themselves up to say something on the Worlds Stage.

If however they were smart, they`d have dealt civilly with this issue and it would have already turned into a non issue. Instead they chose to make themselves look like complete azzholes. Imbeciles really. They could have made themselves look like Heros.

Yup, the guys did something dumb. Something dumb that hardly deserves anywhere near the treatment they are getting. Slap em on the wrists, ask for a public oppology.... DONE. But nope. Peeps ingeneral and the Greek Governement just feel the need to overreact, and GrandStand.

I`ll bet on any given day of the year, there is no one here or anywhere that hasn`t done something equally as dumb. So don`t stand too high up on your podiums, and hold your noses too high in the clouds. Wouldn`t want you to get any nosebleeds. ;p
