Dogfighting Game Renamed, Back on Sale

May 02, 2011  | 


The controversial Dog Wars mobile game has been renamed and is back up on the Android Market, triggering new calls for its permanent removal.

The Dog Wars app can be purchased under the name KG Dogfighting.

In the letter sent Thursday to Google Chief Executive Officer Larry Page, Los Angeles Police Protective League President Paul M. Weber urged Google "to do the right thing and ban this game permanently."

The Los Angeles Police Protective League had protested the initial version, which was pulled by Google from the Market.

Although the application/game (or whatever you may call it) is sickening, the fact of the matter is that it is fantasy. If we were to remove all games that contain illegal actions in the real world, there would sure be a bunch of lawsuits on hand.

What about games like Grand Theft Auto, Manhunt, and the likes?

Banning or removing the game isn't going to solve anything. It is just impeding on peoples pseudo-rights. Sure Google has a right to take the app out of the market, but there are many more that should be as well.

Believe me, I do not condone the behavior, nor do I have any interest in supporting the developers. I just feel we should be pursuing other avenues rather than a fantasy video game.
