In what we hope will be a continuing series of common sense opinions about Grand Theft Auto IV, gang crime expert and author Michael Chettleburgh said, “If you actually go out and talk to young gang members about the top 10 reasons why they joined a gang, you will never hear them talk about the influences of hip hop, videogames or media."

“[Violent media is] just not a primary driver of why kids join gangs," he added.

Of course, he's a Canadian street crime expert, and the top reason Canadian kids join gangs is for the free maple syrup. Plus, it's hard to car-jack a Mounty.
