Video game simulating active shooter scenario draws backlash

A video game that gives the player the choice to be an elite SWAT team member or take the role of an active shooter during a mass casualty event is drawing national and international backlash. 

>> Read more trending news

“Active Shooter,” developed by Revived Games and offered through the Steam video game platform, is a point-of-view simulation game that allows the player to lead a team to extract civilians and neutralize the shooter, or play as the mass shooter, according to its description

“I have been stormed with accusations and heavy (criticism) from people across the globe,” the video game publisher, Acid, wrote. “First of all, this game does not promote any sort of violence, especially any sort of a mass shooting. Originally when this game started its course of the development, I (had) planned on having SWAT only based game-play. Then I thought about adding more gameplay to it by adding additional roles: of the shooter and the civilian. While I can see people's anger and why this might be a bad idea for the game, I still feel like this topic should be left alone. After receiving such high amount of critics and hate, I will more likely remove the shooters role in this game by the release, unless if it can be kept as it is right now.”

In addition to commenters on the video game storefront on Steam disgusted with it, a petition on change.org trying to stop its release has garnered more than 5,350 signatures. 

Infer Trust, a United Kingdom charity, asked Valve, the company behind the Steam game store, to drop the title ahead of its June 6 release. 

"It's in very bad taste,” an Infer Trust spokeswoman told the BBC. “There have been 22 school shootings in the U.S. since the beginning of this year. It is horrendous. Why would anybody think it's a good idea to market something violent like that, and be completely insensitive to the deaths of so many children? We're appalled that the game is being marketed."

The video game developer also has made other titles including “Tyde Pod Challenge” and “White Power: Pure Voltage.” Neither game has anything to do with laundry detergent fads or racism.

Pedroia returns as Red Sox beat Braves 8-6

BOSTON (AP) - All those long rehab days finally paid off Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia.

The 2008 AL MVP made his season debut Saturday after October knee surgery, helping the Red Sox rally for an 8-6 victory over the Atlanta Braves.

"There's been a lot of tough days," Pedroia said. "Today was great to be out there and play."

Pedroia went 0 for 4, but he walked and scored in the third inning of Boston's sixth win in seven games. Andrew Benintendi homered and drove in three runs, and Mitch Moreland had a key two-run double.

Pedroia, who part of Boston's 2007 and '13 World Series-winning teams, got a standing ovation when he came up with the bases loaded and two outs in the first. He popped out to right.

"Every moment's special when you get an opportunity to play baseball here. I never take it for granted," he said. "Today was up there with any of the moments that I've been here. I was proud to be able to comeback from the surgery I had and help us win."

Pedroia hustled home on Christian Vazquez's single, beating a throw to the plate with a headfirst slide.

"Great baserunning. He looked fast," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. "The way he moved, that was good to see. It's good to have him back with the energy he brings."

Knuckleballer Steven Wright (1-0) pitched three scoreless innings for the victory. Craig Kimbrel worked the ninth for his 16th save, retiring three in a row after Ronald Acuna Jr.'s leadoff homer.

Dansby Swanson hit a two-run drive for the Braves, who have dropped 10 of their last 13 at Fenway Park.

Atlanta left-hander Sean Newcomb, a Massachusetts native, struggled with his control in his first career game in Fenway, giving up three runs and six hits over three innings with four walks and four strikeouts.

"Wasn't clicking," Braves manager Brian Snitker said. "I don't know, it just wasn't. He's bound to have one of those. ... He just didn't have it."

The Braves had a 5-4 lead before Moreland's double down the right-field line off Sam Freeman (1-2) in the sixth. Benintendi added a two-run triple in the seventh.

The Red Sox had to rally after Drew Pomeranz was pulled with one out in the fourth. He was charged with five runs and six hits.

Swanson connected in the second, hitting a drive to the Green Monster seats for his third homer. Kurt Suzuki added an RBI single in the third, and Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis each drove in a run in the fourth.

Benintendi went deep in the bottom of the fourth, trimming Atlanta's lead to 5-4 with a solo shot.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Braves: Snitker said RHP Anibal Sanchez (right hamstring) likely will start Tuesday. He went three innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

Red Sox: Cora said the plan for RHP Austin Maddux (10-day disabled list, strained right shoulder) is to be extended more than one inning.

HOMECOMING

Newcomb was born in Brockton, about 30 miles south of Fenway. He attended Middleborough High School and lives in Massachusetts in the offseason.

A fan held up a sign that read: "We love Sean Newcomb."

He estimated there were about 200 people at the game to see him.

"There were a couple of my buddies near the dugout, so I could hear some of the stuff they were saying, but that was it," he said. "It was cool to get a chance to have the family and friends come watch."

MORE CHANGES NEEDED

Some advertisements outside of Fenway - with a picture of Hanley Ramirez - will need to be changed.

The club designated the 34-year-old slugger for assignment on Friday. He hit only .163 with three homers and 12 RBIs in May after starting strong with a .330 average, three homers and 17 RBIs.

UP NEXT

Braves: RHP Mike Foltynewicz (3-3, 2.72 ERA) is set to start the series finale Sunday. He has a 0.56 ERA in his last three starts.

Red Sox: LHP Chris Sale (5-1, 2.17 ERA) looks to continue his strong start this season, having allowed three or fewer runs in all 11 starts.

Atlanta FBI special agent dies after exposure to 9/11 toxins

ATLANTA (AP) - The special agent in charge of the FBI's Atlanta office has died due to complications from his work responding at the World Trade Center on 9/11.

The FBI, in a news release, says David J. LeValley died Saturday. The agency says following the terrorist attacks in New York, LeValley spent several weeks exposed to contaminants and died "in the line of duty as a direct result of his work" there.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

LeValley has served in Atlanta since November 2016. He's been an FBI special agent since 1996, having also served as the special agent in charge of the Criminal and Cyber Division at the Washington Field Office.

FBI spokesman Kevin Rowson says LeValley's death is "a great loss to the entire FBI" and the Atlanta community.
