This was a reply to nearly everyone in this thread.
Dude.. Have you researched some of the Laws we have here?
This country has got the DUMBEST laws i have ever read of.

Examples:
You can smoke publicly at the age of 16 but you can buy and posses cigarettes only at 18.
And there is a 500 dollar fine if a legal smoker gives a single cigarette to a minor.

The age to get a learners license is raised to 16 and 9 months to reduce car crashes, The only thing stupid about this law is our tests are piss easy anyway. A Retard could pass it. They don't teach you shit about driving.

The latest one is that you are kicked off the premises of a shopping center if you are in school uniform between 9AM and 3AM.

You get a fine for spitting, Which is fine so our streets are less infectious.
But get this, The fine is dependent on the 'color and density' of the spit.

You are given a $12,000 dollar fine if your modem picks up on the first ring.

FACTS
1. Thus far Australia does not have an R18+ rating for Games.
2. GTA in its uncut form doesnt meet the requirements for an MA15+ rating which is the current highest rating for games in Australia.
3. Recently debate has been raised and a change is on the horizon for changing Law allowing an R18+ rating for games to be introduced.
4. New Zealand has an R18+ rating but still received the cut version. (LOL)
5. The cut version is not all that different from the uncut version, there is no major change in gameplay.
6. Compared to countries like the USA and the UK, for a colony of convicts Australia has a lower crime rate pro rata.
The first 5 and a half are facts. I'd think you'd know Australia isn't a "colony of convicts". It used to be.

Hopefully they will get an R18 rating, good on Rockstar for asking for one. For point 4 I blame some suit in Take-Two.

There's plenty of crazy laws all over the world. Many which make those look normal.

In Kentucky, it is illegal to carry an ice cream cone in your pocket.

Yea but see that rises the question 'why would you?'
But with a lot of our laws they are just completely stupid, Why would you make a law like some of ours?
I'm pretty sure there is also a law for Taxi's having to carry a certain amount of hay in their trunk.

Gamers that play GTA4 ARE hardened criminals.

The problem is the kids playing this game in the first place!! They shouldnt be!! It has a rating for a reason, its the kids playing this game which ruins it for everyone else! (The Adults).

And what are you blaming the police for? In what way are we responsible for what has happened? We don't choose what laws we will and will not enforce.

This sucks, New Zealand is getting the cencored version to, and it still gets a r18 rating, even thoughit clearly says MA15+ on the back, R18 on the front ...
