TASER Foundation Joins Boycott of Cop Killer Game

July 01, 2005  | 

TASER Foundation, a non-profit foundation to honor fallen law enforcement officers and provide one time financial grants to their families, has joined Sen. Charles Schumer, law enforcement agencies, and family members in their call for retailers and distributors not to stock the new Eidos video, "25 to Life."

"This game dehumanizes law enforcement officers and minimizes the very real danger and sacrifices these men and women face everyday. Killing cops should never be seen as entertainment," said Steve Gibson, TASER Foundation Community Advisory Committee member.

In 2004, 154 law enforcement officers in the United States and seven law enforcement officers in Canada were killed in the line of duty. "The TASER Foundation provides support to the families of these officers, we also help promote a positive image of law enforcement, by sharing the stories of these brave men and women," said Foundation Executive Director Geraldine Anderson. "To date, we have provided over $560,000 in financial support to the families of fallen officers.

"Games such as 25 to Life just add to the grief and pain these families cope with on a daily basis. Eidos is exploiting these tragedies for profit and promoting disrespect for the law enforcement community," concluded Anderson.
