Michael Atkinson: "Gamers scarier than bikies"

Australia 3

Sasayaki (1096761) writes "The South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson claims, in an interview with Good Game, that gamers were more of a threat to his family than biker gangs. This is the man who has been the biggest opponent to Australia receiving an R18+ rating for video games and who has the power to veto any such law introducing it."

Just when you thought you'd seen it all - this arseclown comes along and makes my brain bleed.

Yep - them gamers are a dangerous lot (when you can get them to leave their machines.

Like the bikers he claimed cooked a cat on the barby at his local park - well, not actually a cat, in fact, not his local park, dammit - not even bikers.

Quick call the police, fingerprints, handwriting analysis - wot, your dog ate the note, oh, and bikers stole the dog. R-ight.

$10 says he didn't call the police. Did the bikers steal his phone?

The guy has a law degree, and arts degree and spent 3 years working for a newspaper... bring on Hemingways' "3 day open season".
