A suburban Chicago police officer is looking to get violent videogames off the streets. Modeled after police gun buyback programs, Wilmette, Ill., police officer Dan Huck has convinced local merchants to offer discounts or raffle tickets in exchange for each violent videogame turned in to police. The same local merchants, not the Wilmette police, are funding the buyback. Games surrendered during the program's six-day run will not be returned to circulation, "We're simply going to destroy them," said Huck.
