Army Game Fallout

Simulated Sniping: Army Recruits Teens With Internet Game (thanks Dave Lepore) has signs of what could be considered the expected fallout from America's Army: Operations, the Unreal-engine army recruiting tool, spurred at least in part by recent events in light of the game's inclusion of a "sniper school." The article includes responses from the U.S. Army to criticisms of the game, which are outlined in the following bit, which includes the threat of an injunction against the game:

Jack Thompson, a father and a Miami attorney is fighting the Pentagon. He says it's wrong for the military to unleash this game on America's youth.

"I'm a father of a 10-year-old boy," Thompson says. "And every day I drop him off at school, I know that he's at greater risk because some of his classmates, as well as others in the general population, train obsessively in these shooter games."

Thompson, who has represented the parents of children killed in school shootings, says he will file an injunction in federal court next week, if the Army doesn't pull the plug.

This lawyer is yet another shining example on why the Gene Pool needs more chlorine.

And he spawned...I guess we're in for some more sh*t later on down the road, huh.
