LCPD faces allegations of incompetance, brutality

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 09:55 PM MDT | By Slim Trashman
Parody news website, The Onion, has put up a hilarious article regarding the citizens of Liberty City, whom are concerned the LCPD have not performed to their satisfaction to prevent "car chases, ongoing gun battles, and overall atmosphere of violence that pervade the area."
Many blame the LCPD directly for the increase in criminal activity, citing the department's lax procedure for arresting criminals, which involves taking 10 percent of the suspect's money, confiscating his weapons, and simply releasing him from custody later that day. Outraged citizens say this is not enough, especially in a city where assault rifles can be found on factory roofs and grenade caches are located under the globe at the old World's Fair site.

Perhaps even more alarming, city records indicate that more than 75 percent of perpetrators in mass-murder or vehicular-manslaughter cases escape, usually by simple methods such as driving into a car-repainting facility. Criminals have even eluded pursuit by walking into their apartment and going to bed for six hours, after which the search has been called off.

"And to those who say the LCPD is too quick to resort to deadly force, remember that almost 850,000 police officers, FIB agents, and N.O.O.S.E. [National Office of Security Enforcement] team members have died in the line of duty in the past month," he added.

hahah very nice, thanks for posting :P

I fucking love The Onion. I honestly think Rockstar should collaborate with them and have them write scripts for the talk radio stations that you can listen to in-game.

"I was buying a hot dog from a street vendor in Hove Beach yesterday when I saw someone run a red light, barrel down the sidewalk, careen into a garbage truck, exit his vehicle, steal a nearby convertible, and drive away," one Broker resident reported. "A nearby police car didn't even react. But when the car behind him nicked his fender, the officer shot the driver through the windshield and walked away."

Genius. Pure genius.
