Well, first off, Jack Thompson is a lunatic. I think that's pretty clear. However, be careful calling this by any legal terms, like slander, etc. I don't want to turn this into a legal exam (I have enough of those to deal with right now), but I'll just say it can get really complicated. Let's just be happy with calling Jack one crazy mother f**ker. Trust me, if there are any legal angles to this, old Strauss will be the first to pursue them.

"Strauss is even marketing the new Grand Theft Auto IV on World Wrestling Entertainment tv shows seen by millions of kids."

Hmm.... Real violence and sex being watched by children is OK, but fake violence and sex is bad? Way to make sense Jack. I think what this whole thing comes down to, is people like Jack Thompson are so used to bitching about stuff, and they're tired of Rap Music. Seriously, people need to Man the Fuck Up and stop trying to find stuff to blame for their issues. Then again, maybe Jack just needs to get laid.... and smoke a joint or 5. That always cheers me up.

14? I'm only 14 now, I started playing GTA2. I loved randomly using a flamethrower to burn (I have stats from when I was 7) 10000s of people. I have never commited a crime, and never plan to. (And I really have a knack for gore in games, I have the unpatched manhunt 2 on my psp). I am trying not to go on an immature rant about this, but this guy pisses me off.

Somebody sue the wachovski brothers for their extremely violent movie about people taking drugs and going on rampages killing cops (AKA The Matrix)

That son of a bitch.
I have a thorough lack of knowledge about people like Jack Thompson.
Obviously, people who kill others are profoundly F***ed up in the head, for whatever reason.
Why would you blame it on video games? Maybe a certain scene in the video game resembles the murder/crime.. but, this is just ridiculous. I'm tired of thinking about it. It pisses me off.

Assuming that this letter of his is real.

Even if this email is fake, I figured I'd post some replies to the certain parts of the message.

Murder simulator, eh? I would call GTA many things, but simulator is NOWHERE on that list.

Does this mean anyone who plays GTA is on death row? Hmm, guess all of my friends and I (along with the people on this forum) never got that memo.

Dead because of GTA? Hmmm...well if these 'kids' did play GTA, who allowed it in the house in the first place? The parents? Oh, silly me, that's right, Take 2 did it. They just strolled up to their homes and put them at gunpoint until they "trained" themselves on it.

Jack Thompson should be arrested simply for talkin down on Ted Bundy. I also never realized Ted Bundy had anything to do with shooting cops and pedestrians...

Dang, Jack, that's a great point you bring up there. I only have one quesion: Where do they get the credit card info so they can actually pay for the game?

Yep, and it's all Take 2's fault. Not the TV channel's fault, nor the wrestling federation's fault. 100% Take 2. Oh, and I'm glad to see you're not a hypocritical asshole....oh wait.

I'm sure the teenaged boy just walked up the street holding out a rocket launcher, instantly switched to an AK47, hit the L1 button for auto aim, then clicked R1 to shoot.

He always will be, and always have been.
This guy is a loser.
He is the guy who reminds me in Highschool of the kid who stands on a pole lurking people and making fun of their looks and walks, he has nothing else better to do with his life.
Dumbasses these days..

Jack Thompson and all the people who share the same state of mind with him can kiss my ass. And I hope he reads what I said, too. If not, then I'll tell it to his face even. He needs help. The kind that brass knuckles to the equilibrium can only offer..
