In another in our hopefully long-running series of posts congratulating people with a sensible attitude toward violent videogames, Lawton Kansas Police Chief Ronnie Smith earns a G4-Gold-Star for this statement he made to a local news team "investigating" Grand Theft Auto IV:

"Most of the young people who play these games know they’re only games, they’re smart enough to know they’re only games. It’s that small percentage that don’t realize, or that start thinking the wrong way, and end up getting themselves in trouble by thinking, ‘you know, this is cool, I can do this in real life.’

This is all fun and games when you’re playing these games, but turn them off and forget about it, and know that that’s not real life. Because in real life you don’t get up and walk away… In real life it’s a totally different ball game."

Mr Smith, you are truly an American hero.
