PBA President Dan De Federicis was interviewed on Feb. 22 by a reporter from television station FOX 23 News in Albany about the video game “25 to Life,” in which participants role-play shooting gang members and police officers and using civilians as human shields. In his remarks, De Federicis spoke out against the video game and implored upon parents to pay close attention to what games their children are playing. The news segment was shown on FOX 23 News, an Albany affiliate, on their 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts. The news station’s web site is www.fox23news.com.
We have also included a link to the web site of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), which is protesting the video game. NLEOMF is sponsoring an online petition against the game.
