Jack Thompson seeks to "destroy" Take-Two label

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 10:34 AM MDT | By Kodo
Following on the Manhunt news is this GameDaily interview with Florida attorney Jack Thompson. He has a history of going against violent media and he was contacted by the parents of a child that was killed in England. The child was murdered by another boy who played Manhunt. Now Jack Thompson thinks he's going to make Rockstar cease to exist.
GameDaily: This whole situation in England is certainly unfortunate. From what I have read, the parents of the victim have contacted you?

Thompson: The mother did, yeah. We are going to destroy Rockstar, you can count on that.

GD: You are going to target Rockstar North?

Thompson: Not just Rockstar, another target will be Sony. The tie-in between Rockstar and Sony is rather firmly established.

He goes on to say that since Rockstar will not stop marketing violent games to children, he will win all of their money so they cease to exist. He says he warned them before and they wouldn't listen, so now he's taking them out. Thompson says that the games will not be protected under the First Amendment in court and he will have them banned.
GD: It does seem though that for every study that does indicate a possible link between videogame violence and real-life violence, there is another one that discounts that.

Thompson: Let me say it again, since you are the Devil's advocate here. The studies that show a linkage are independent of anybody. The head of the American Medical Association and the head of the American Pediatric Psychiatric have testified under oath before Congress and said all the studies that are out there that are reliable; prove the causal nexus between violent videogame and teenage violence.

All the studies that you and Doug Lowenstein and others want to say rebut those are hired by the industry with their dollars. They are told in effect what the results are going to be, they have flawed testing techniques and so forth. So they come up with the results they want to protect their industry. They are not interested in finding out the truth here. I will tell you right now they have their own internal studies, that they won't share with the public, that show the behavioral consequences because they need it from a risk management standpoint.

This is the industry that said for a decade there was no causal link between videogame play and photosensitive epilepsy. Now there's a warning on every game as to the linkage between those things. They said there were no studies that indicated that, and yet we have found out in a federal case in Louisiana that Nintendo had their own in-house studies showing the nexus between the games and the epilepsy.

Jack Thompson should sue the boys' parents for buying that game and not teaching the kid that killing people just isn't right.

Here, I'll post it here:

"Murder by PlayStation" case takes twist


UK police find Rockstar's action game in the victim's home, raising questions about parents' allegations.

New developments may stir things up in the recent allegations that Manhunt had inspired the murder of a 14-year-old boy in the UK. Local police announced today that they had indeed found a copy of the action game, but it was found in the victim's bedroom.

The development could raise several questions concerning Mr. and Mrs. Pakeerah's claims, such as how did their son come into possession of the "M"-rated game and who bought it for him. However, such questions are probably irrelevant to the case, according to police. We havent connected the game with the murder...the motive was robbery," said local police spokesperson Narinder Pooni.

The games-cause-violence story sent the UK media into a frenzy last week. The Daily Mail lead the charge, running the headline "Murder by PlayStation" and starting a sensational campaign to ban violent games. Pooni stated that the police had already announced that the game was not involved in the murder, but that "some sections of the media chose to ignore it."

On the Box of manhunt and all the GTA-games can the people see a 18+ label or something, so Thompson has only to shut up, because the parents didnt think: "Should our little boy not too young for this game?", NO THEY DID NOT! The parents are the people who buying this game for their young boy, so as R* like it make so popular games like these than do the children or parents always have the choice to NOT buy or steal games like these, do u know what I mean?

If you are stupid enough to take a game like manhunt or the gta series and then go out and kill somebody.. then YOU are the one who should be in trouble not the company that's making and selling it to the rest of us who arn't as crazy to begin with... somebody should be watching these people.

Wait, I'm confused. Why is Pastor Richards suing R*, again?

But seriously that's some messed up shit. Stupid fucks are just taking the easy way out trying to blame shit like that on a video game. I just read a BBC article on that shit. It said this: "Leblanc (the murderer) had savagely beaten his victim with a claw hammer and stabbed him repeatedly after luring him to a local park.

Leicester Crown Court heard the defendant had planned to rob Stefan (the victim)."

Sounds like that kid was fucked up in the head without the help of any video games. Plus, I still haven't seen any article that actually said that Leblanc had actually PLAYED the game. According to the gamespot article, he didn't even have it. THE VICTIM HAD IT!!! This Thompson douche has no case. And I'm sick and tired of evangelical cunts like him trying to retract the world back into the 50's. Was there no child violence before video games were even invented? He should go and get a real fucking job, a pack of Tampax, and some Johnson & Johnson's No More Tears shampoo, and shut the fuck up because nobody cares what his Nazi mongoloid ass has to say!

Look, a game hardly influenced a guy to kill someone. He must have had something up with him. Everybody that owns Manhunt doesnt have the urge to kill people in real life, its just coincidental that a kid who murdered a guy owned Manhunt, simple as!

And if that guy thinks he can shut R* down, he really needs to think. Why not ban 18 rated films! Why focus on one company. If there is anyone to blame its the person who bought or sold that game to him.

Haha this guy is so dumb, him, by himself, will not take down Rockstar, and then, since Rockstar and Sony are well connected, he'll take down Sony as well. Like he said though, it's VERY simple to take away companies like that, oh yeah right, bull shit.

This guy is nothing but a little penis head. You can't blame video games for peoples stupidity. It's only for entertainment purposes only, nothing more. Next, on their raitings, there probably going to have to put "Do not attempt in real life situations" or something like that.

I shame on this man, I shame on his very much. His constant name calling is not going to get him anywhere. Calling Doug Lowenstein worse then Saddam and stuff. Haha this guy's a douche, and I wish I had a chance to talk to tell him how dumb he really.

What needs to be done is, they need to talk to people our age (around 14 to like 18) or something, so we can tell him how big of a dumbass he is, and how violent video games don't encourage us to reinact any of the games scenes.

The people who kill and blame it on video games, you know there is something fucked up with them, for one, they killed someone, and two, they blamed it on a video game. So therefore, they would have to have something wrong with them before, in order for them to do that. I don't care how violent the video game is. If your fucked up and want to kill someone, then most likely they are going to do it, violent video game or not. The games don't do shit, it's only a scapegoat that the murderer can blame it on. Which in all of our opinions here it seems, it's rediculous.

So all in all, Jack Thompson, YOUR the Saddam Hussien. Your trying to take away our freedom of playing video games. But of course, like the real Hussien, you will crumble Jack Thompson. Yes, you will crumble. You are trying to make a stand, but you'll miserbly fail. And if you do succeed (which you won't) no one will like you, no ONE. You will be the most hated man on this earth. Remember, us, the teenages, are this Earth's future. You piss us off now, and we'll still be pissed off when we're older. So lets gets some things straight Jack: Leave the companies alone. Your merely a little misquito compared to Rockstar and Sony, and eventually, One of the two companies will splat you with their hands, because your a bugging little bastard that can't leave people alone. I think your just jealous that you can't make awesome video games that everyone loves. So you have to be a dick and spoil everyones fun by trying to take away video games because of some nut case killer who likes to kill people and blame it on video games.

Nice try Jack. Oh I have question, do you actually even have a job? Like, do you just sit home and think "Man, what game company can I try to take down today, and fail it again and again?". What, do you just sit there and ponder that? Do you have no life other than to try and take video games off the shelves? Do you also just sit there and wait till someone dies and blames it on video games, and then you try to take action. It seems your only defense is that, and yet, it's not a good one. Yeah it sucks that people have to die like that, because some nut kills them and blames it on a video game. That's rediculous. Video games don't kill people, people kill people. Does the game secretly go "Hey...hey you. I want you to kill your friend" or something like that? No. No it doesnt. It's also the parents to blame as well, as they aren't spending enough time with their kid maybe. He could have something seriously messed up with him, and his parents wouldn't know. What about the MANHUNT game, why didn't his parents know about that?

So Jack, what I'm trying to say is, your a dumbass, and need to stick your shitty little nose out of everyones business. Do us all a favor, and just leave. No one likes you. Oh and one more thing, out of respect for Doug Lowestien and Rockstar and Sony, Jack, you are a little bitch.

I think this is a bunch of bull crap.Movies are rated R and if a kid under 17 tries to go in they wont let them.Same as a games we play. i have seen worse on a movie and the movie makers dont get in trouble. Jack is to old to see it in the eyes of a young kid.So Jack......Go Fuk yourself!

this guy obviously isnt going to get anywhere because manhunt wasnt made to be played by anyone under 18, and if someone under 18 plays it, its not rockstars fault its the kids parents fault. combine this with the fact that the kid who got murdered had a copy of the game and this jack thompson character has no case. these parents are against games like this yet they let their 14 year old kid play it? sounds more like a couple of people who really really want money. i mean they caught the guy that murder their kid, thats more than a lot of families to murder victims get.

I hate how this bastard always targets R* and leaves out all the other countless M rated games out there. If you're going to bring down a company, at least go after one that wont get you killed in the end. If this idiot so happends to succeed I ccan garentee you he will be killed.

if you really want to do something you have seen in Vice City in real life try taking some pictures of Mr Attorney Jack Thompson in his bra, panties and garter belt. If we had thoes maybe he would leave poor Rockstar alone.

In the article Thompson says this:
[b]I warned them almost two years ago that if they didn't do more to keep these games out of the hands of minors, then there would be a push to ban the games all together.[/b]

Hahah "take down rockstar AND sony" haha nice try man, only the biggest corporations in gaming/electronics... EVER

Blame the game? Why not blame the parents for
1. teaching not to steal (reports were he tried stealing off the victim)
2. Teaching that violence is not the answer
3. Killing is the worst
4. Buying the game for him
5. NOT BEATING HIM LIKE THEY SHOULD WHEN HE GREW UP


Dammit I am so tired of spoiled little brats getting treated like theyve been brainwashed when their whole lives all theyve done is violent shit. They get everything there is to get, and rob people, talk dirty, act tough, and then blame a game so they can get out of it?

I say the suspect should get eye for an eye treatment... now gimme that hammer! you spoiled brat

Last year, when a sniper was terrifying the Washington, D.C. area, he speculated the shooter could be a gamer, based solely on the "I am God" messages that were left for police. (Some games have cheat codes that let you enter what's referred to as "God mode" where the player's character takes no damage.)

lol.... what a douche

To be honest I can see where he's coming from but this is extreme. And you should all stop typing out curse words with spaces in between like morons because nobody wants to see your foul language, thats why there is a censorship system built in to block out words like that, you mrons.

"We dont make a big deal about Fagits getting married but yet we can moan and complain like morons about violence in video games"

Wow thats pretty ignorant, im not gay but thats just really mean. I bet mostof the gay guys out there could kick your wimpy computer nerd ass.

This guy has nothing on R* he tried bringing up the whole epilepsy thing but that is irrelevent to this case

This piece of sht doesnt have anything

"This is the industry that said for a decade there was no causal link between videogame play and photosensitive epilepsy. Now there's a warning on every game as to the linkage between those things."

What a fucking loser he is trying to appeal by saying those stupid ass facts he is a nobody and he is thinking of bringing SONY down [b]him and what army[/b]

Hahaha, check this out, it claims the kid was sleep walking and acting out the game. And it even has a picture of Jack Thompson. Anyone up for some photoshop?

I second everything you said. I wouldn't be suprised if Jack Thompson becomes Another murder victim in one of SA missions. I'd enjoy that.

If the victim owned Manhunt,and since life emulates videogames so much, maybe hey should have lurked in the shadows instead of allowing himself to be foolishly lured into the park...... In all honesty though, these lawsuits are getting older than the shit in Johnsons shorts.

In 1992, the American Civil Liberties Union named Jack Thompson one of its ten "Censors of the Year" for daring to suggest that Time Warner rapper Ice-T's "Cop Killer" should be pulled from store shelves worldwide. That award is a badge of honor Thompson wears proudly, not only because Time Warner did what he requested but because Thompson was ten years ahead of the national curve in predicting the entertainment-inspired copycat violence we are seeing from a generation raised on violence that Hollywood says is "cool."

tha b i t c h wears his badge proudly... lol

If he thinks games are so violent, why is he going against him? I figure he would be obsessed with the idea somebody is going to shoot him for making the allegations.

What a moron. First of all, as most people have already said, it's the parents' choice to give him the game. My parents may buy me GTA games, but I doubt they would get me manhunt. Point 2 - This kid must have already had something happen to him before because not any random kid will go out and kill someone because "they played a violent video game". He had to have been screwed up in the first place. Point 3 - How does this idiot think to brign down those companies? It would take something of... paranormal degree to take down Rockstar, but it's just crazy to think to go after Sony. As a previous poster said, if he takes down R*, I'm gonna manhunt his ass.

you hit the figurative nail right on the head. no one playing ONE game will kill someone without previous pre-disposed nature to be violent.

just remember this quote, If Pacman had affected us as kids we'd be running around in dark rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music."

Red e 2 die, (# 84) I sent him an email, with many points, and how it's the parents, and how parents around here understand We can handle it.

He only commented "well you parents did not raise Warren Leblanc, so it is not bad parenting"

This douche said my parents have bad parenting skills - Hmm not commiting crimes must be bad, because I dont remember KILLING SOMEBODY

obviously, I served him a plate full of his ass, as he didnt comment on anything.

Email me at slickpenguin@hotmail.com to see what I wrote and what he wrote back

If any of you fucking morons kill Jack Thompson over this issue then you'll just make him a martyr and people will use it as "proof" to claim that his bullshit about video games causing violence is indeed true. I agree that he's either a greedy jackass madman or a complete and self righteous utter moron but don't be the violent little bastards he wants you to be.

...or at least make it look like an accident or like he was robbed over something totally unrelated. No claiming it in the name of gaming, that would be the worst move ever and could possibly unleash all sorts of hellfire against us.

Jeeze...

Haha, homophobes are funny. They act like they hate them, but they only dislike them because they are afraid to be around them. You say theyre less than you, yet you cower away from them.

Get used to it - homosexuals will always be around, go get some counseling and learn to deal with that fact.

This guy needs to be shutten up. He obviously isn't realizing that it's his parents fault. They gave their son an M rated game. That's like giving your kids alcohol and they go out and run people over. Hmmm, whos fault is it now? Alcohol? No, alcohol can do that to you no matter what age, but that doesnt happen. What does happen is the parents giving their kid the alcohol.

I'm 13 and play GTA/Violent Games but you dont see me killing people or hitting them.That's because I'm a clean minded person.I wouldn't do a thing like that nor would most of the other game fans.I think that the kid was just kinda crazy.And this guy can't "Destroy" Rockstar because he's an old biatch who thinks he can do whatever he wants.Oh and everyone,don't buy a videogame at Toys'R'Us because they won't give you games like Devil May Cry because it has blood.Dumb shits....

Strange. Dude won't respond to me. I think that's mostly because of this paragraph in my email: " I am a stalwart supporter of unlimited First Amendment rights. It seems pointless that we would have free speech be the primary right given to us in our most valuable and cherished document, if it had the potential to become watered-down over time to suit the wants those who think they know what is best for society. Do you not think of yourself as one who knows what is best for society? Is that not why you are on this crusade? And I use the word "crusade" fittingly, since I do not doubt that your are invoking Christian, evangelist thought in you efforts to destroy Rockstar; comparing yourself to David fighting Goliath. And you are invoking this Christian, evangelist thought to apply to what is best for all racial and religious denominations. And though you may see yourself as the messiah to rid the world of all violent crime committed by children and teenagers, I can assure you that you are not. You are far from it. The fact is, there has always been crime committed by children and teenagers; long before video games were even conceived; long before and long after any messiah existed. Eliminating every single video game in the world will have little, if any, effect on that. And you... you are simply either a very confused, irrational man, or you are a complete and utter fraud; taking advantage of and capitalizing on the public's own irrational fears for your personal profit. And in this proccess, you are hurting or eliminating something that many people enjoy, for your own benefit. And whichever one of those reasons applies to you, I think it's very shameful of you to be doing what you are. And it's very sad knowing that somebody whose job it is to defend the Constitution and help society is using their authority in such a manner that does society harm because of their own, personal, delusions or their immense greed. It makes somebody like me lose faith in Democracy."

I think it's kinda funny, actually.

this is what I wrote to Jack:

Listen, over the past few hours I've been reading your comments about the tragedy in the UK. You said quote "We will destroy rockstar games" or something to that extent. Now there are a lot of points that I agree with you on, such as children shouldn't have access to M rated video games. I don't agree %100 that it will cause aggressive behavior but that's beside the point. What I would really like to know is if you honestly believe that you can take down Rockstar Games with a lawsuit. They are the developer and publisher of one of the highest grossing video game franchises of all time (Grand Theft Auto), hence it would take a lot to bankrupt them. Other questions also arouse such as how did the child get the game? Why are you so focused on Rockstar? Look at the parents! Even if the kid was able to buy the game on his own, I'm sure they have some control over there sons life and could of not allowed him to have the game, and if that doesn't satisfy you look at the retailer who sold the boy the video game, there more responsible than rockstar games IF manhunt had anything to do with the murder. Look what happened was real sad, but I did some research, the police said that the motif was robbery and they didn't have any reason to believe that it had anything to do with the game, but the media disregarded the report. Even if the game is responsible, someone who would play a video game and then act on what he saw or did in the game is of a select few who needs help.Try building a case around that. Look at some statistics, bicycles kill hundreds more children every year, what are you going to do, threaten to bankrupt schwin? I honestly think your in this for the $$$, because you think you'll be able to get a good out of court settlement from rockstar. Your trying to profit off of a tragedy, but hey, that's a whole lot more morally right that a violent video game. That's my opinion. Ohh and if you haven't caught on to the general tone of my E-mail yet, there is no way in hell you bankrupt Rockstar or take2.

Good Day

By the way, I love the email that I'm getting now by the hundreds from people who want to convince me that the games have had no effect on them that say things like "f*** you" and "I hope you die" and so forth. That's really persuasive stuff. They're really thoughtful, cordial people. If I point that out to them, I'm not sure they'd get it.

Ykno, Ive supported not flooding this dickwad, but I, as well as many people, have sent plenty of emails with valid points - let me copy the responses he gave after I gave him endless points that proved him wrong.

"no, your parents didn't raise warren leblanc, so we can't blame bad parenting "

"take it up with your parents, kiddo "


"you are nothing. you don't exist. you're simply a nitwit in cyberspace"



all of those were replyed after about 5 paragraphs of information proving him wrong. I shove this bitch a platefull of his own ass, and he insults me.

This guy does not care about youth, he wants publicity and money, He wont even dignify critizism by more than one sentence. Flood this moron, flood him fool of hate mail and just plain nonsense - if you send him legit emails he'll just wave them off, so do something useful.

red-e-2-die, I understand that he goes by both.

Some users at Stern Fan Network tried e-mailing him over his attacks on Howard Stern and got the same weak insults. I posted this response at slashdot about this jerk(It's rather long):

<i>Why am I not surprised..... (Score:5, Informative)
by Anonymous Coward on Wednesday August 04, @01:17AM (#9876013)
I look at it this way: Jack Thompson further proved himself to be an opportunistic scumbag. I'm surprised he didn't take the first flight to London as soon as he heard about it. But then again, we are talking about a total loon who would slit his mother's throat and/or sell his soul to the devil just to prove his asinine theories. Not to mention that he originated hearse-chasing(just like ambulance-chasing, except the destination's the funeral home) and he may be a necrophilliac. Let's analyze this scumbag, shall we?:

1) Thompson may be considered a racist since he helped lead censorship attacks against 2 Live Crew and Ice-T.

2) Thompson was ordered to take a psychological evaluation as part of a restraining order filed by Miami DJ Neil Rogers(IIRC, The Florida State Bar Association called Jack Thompson's sanity into question TWICE). In fact, Thompson can't even mention Rogers by name as part of that order, which came about when Thompson tried to have Rogers arrested over something he said on his radio show that Thompson didn't like.

3) Thompson has lost every case he started up involving the video game industry(the Paducah school shootings come to mind). When he tried to become Dustin Lynch's attorney last year(the case in Ohio where Thompson tried to blame(GTA3 for the murder), Lynch refused his services, so the judge banned him from being involved in the case, saying that Thompson had no right to defend a client that didn't even want him as his attorney; Lynch would later plead guilty anyway and in blood-stained letters sent to his victim's family members, he claimed he did it for "his own personal enjoyment" and that the game didn't make him do it. The prosecution even scoffed at Thompson's claims, saying that they had an open and shut case.

4) Thompson even enjoys calling HIMSELF a wacko(If you remember, he called himself "Wacky Jack" in a newspaper article about him joining the Haitians' lawsuit aginst Vice City).

Now about this particular case, Police officials don't even believe Thompson, the victim's parents or the British tabloid media. Officials have stated that robbery was the motive(The 17 year-old murderer killed the 14 year-old to rob him to pay off drug debts), and that the game was found in the VICTIM'S OWN BEDROOM!! Sounds to me like somebody has some explaining to do.

Jack Thompson has no credibility left, whether because of his own actions or because the federal courts continue to reject his claims. Yet the only reasons he's still around is 'cause of an apathetic news media(i.e. Anderson Cooper 360) and because he's an psychotic attention whore who's in need of mental help. And until a modern-day Edward R. Murrow questions the tactics of Thompson and his ilk, he'll continue this crap.

== BearDogg-X ==</i>

A user there going by the of MojoFraggle actually e-mailed that response to the douche-nozzle and got this weak message back:

<i>wow, do you have any neurons left since gaming? apparently not.</i>

If I would have e-mailed him back, this would have been my response:

<i>If my brain didn't have any neurons left, I wouldn't have any brain activity at all. Now my question to you is this: If your "claims" are so truthful, why is it that not a single person believes you. Oh, I forgot, because of the majority opinion that <b>PROSTITUTION IS A MORE NOBLE PROFESSION THAN YOURS</b>, it's no wonder that no intelligent person would believe you. Have A Nice Day!!</i>

Whoa. I might just like that better than my "get a real ufcking job, get a pack of Tampax, some Johnson & Johnson's 'no more tears' shampoo, and shut the ufck up because nobody cares what his Nazi mongoloid ass has to say!" argument. Is it really true that he's never won a case? That would really make a lot of people, including me stop having absolutely any worries about this douche.
