Jack Thompson: GTA to Blame for Murder Plot

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 11:32 AM MDT | By Neil
We've reported on the exploits of Florida lawyer Jack Thompson in the past, his reaction to the Manhunt allegations of the summer and appearance on BBC Frontline Scotland provided some interesting debate through our comments system and forums. This time, Thompson has linked the Grand Theft Auto series to a vicious plot cooked up by a sixteen-year-old boy in Massachussetts, in which he planned to kill innocent people and "mow down" those who tried to assist.
"The technique of killing civilians and then first-responders when they get there is the primary scenario to win in all the Grand Theft Auto games, they are killing simulators actually used by gangs."
-- Jack Thompson, Attorney


The teenager in question, Tobin Kerns, allegedly owns copies of Grand Theft Auto titles and plays them regularly. He has been charged with attempting to commit murder and promotion of anarchy.

i love how people relate crimes to games. its lame cuz most of the people that have GTA games are your average persons. none of them would go crazy. Also, this lawyer guy probably didn't look into the other causes of this incident. he should not put the whole blame on Gta.

He just wants to blame everything on games, since they're so real.

I bet if we still have the "degenatron" style gaming, then none of these lawsuit would come up.

Man, when will people realise that games don't do this lol. People must have something wrong with them for them to go out killing people for no reason. If it was because of games then every Tom Dick and Harry who played GTA would be murdering as if it was a daily routine. I sooooo hate lawyers.

This guy is one serious cunt, its the murderers mental state,obviously he was a nut-job for killin someone,and this guy just blames it on GTA cause the boy HAPPENED to play this.i play manhunt,gta 1-vice city and all other gory shitand my favourite movies are scarface,pulp fiction and resevoir dogs,but i dont get my screwdriver and macheter and go on a killin spree,it is because the murderer had mental problems,end of discusion......

Surprised he hasn't blamed the actions of Charles Manson, and Jefferey Domer on PacMan. Yeah 'cause actual gang members play GTA to train for turf wars. Dumbass, someone needs to mow his ass down, and then kill the people that try to save him.

every generation some old fool who isnt relevent anymore has to try to hook his name on to something and say it is to blame for the problems of society. when i was young it was ozzy osbourne and judas priest and satanism. nothing ever happend to them, and nothing will happen to rockstar. there are still some intellegant judges out there, who dont buy into this bs.

He screwed himself over there. The kid wasn't 18, he couldn't legally possess the game. Blame the parents and the people who sold it to them.

Sorry to double-comment, but I just noticed this, and it made laugh.

ok a gang member pulls up in his car smoking black smoke after he ramped it off a stair case and rolled it over. anyway he gets out and auto locks to any other gangmember even if they are hiding. in the process the gng member gets fired upon by a colt 45 about 12 times before he completes his mission

Man, I am sick of media scapegoating. If GTA wasn't around they probably would've blamed Marilyn Manson. Why don't they shift the blame where it belongs; On the parents. If that little brat was raised properly like the rest of the civilized world, he would be able to separate movie/TV/Video game violence. Freedom of speech takes another pant-sh!tting

eldiablo, it's promotion of anarchy, not anarchism. Promotion of anarchy is an act intended to cause or support the causing of mass chaos on an urban, state, or national level. Not the political position of 'No more government' but the state of emergency of 'someone's gunning down hundreds of innocent people.' Basically, it's the crime of causing or intending to support the causing of a situation not unlike having 6 stars in Vice City. And if America had less free speech than a totalitarian dictatorship, you'd currently have an army officer shoving the butt of his rifle in your face. :P

okay this guy is seriously on drugs...
we have an underaged kid playing a game rated Mature, who then stockpiles guns and ammunition in his room that his parents never find out about, plotting to shoot people, and he blames the GAME???

maybe he should spend more time with his own son instead of shoving his illegal copy of gta on him then blaming it.

What's weird is that he targets R* specifically, but his foremost complaint is keeping the games out of minor hands. He's not properly aligned. He's going after the wrong man. They may make it, but it's up to legislature(in whatever capacity), ESRB & retailers to ensure that the M rating is enforced. Obviously someone's not doing their job for this man to be this adamant about the subject. Also, if you read the IGN article, a lot of his answers start off with: "I don't know..", or "I think.." This man shouldn't and won't be taken seriously. It's no surprise that he hasn't won a single case against the game industry, because he needs to do more than "think" and he has to "KNOW" what he's doing. Not to mention that the game industry is booming enough to surpass the motion picture industry, so I don't think ANYONE is going to let Jack Thompson interfere with their payday.

He must of had some issues, because I don't know of anyone playing a game and them going out and slaughtering someone. All I can say about this 'incident' is that it wasn't the game, it was his own sense, unless if it was the game, then he must of been pretty stupid, even underaged purchasers of Grand Theft Auto games don't do that, and yet people say they are immature, or not mature enough, but at the age of 16? Come on now! He was mature, so you thought..This world is a bizzar place, and to think of something like this happening, just increases it's bizarrness..Anyways, he was screwed in the head for doing it.

Dang, can't edit.

Who cares about this guy, really? How many people have made the same claim over the past 2 or 3 years, and nothing has happened to GTA because of it. Of course, its not impossible that one day the GTA series could not exist due to the same type of people that block the cock and want no one to have fun. We should all grow up to be like Flanders kids, and Flanders himself. And if you don't know who Flanders is, you have a problem.

Nice attempt at a letter. If you really are a parent and you wrote that, I suspect you dropped out of school before 9th grade.

I don't get the whole blame the video games for everything thing going on. Politicians always blame it on the media. The thing that bothers me is that every game in the GTA seris is usually inspired by films and music. ie. Scarface/Vice City, Godfather/GTA3, Boyz In Da Hood/San Andreas. The games are based on specific genres that in other cases are praised by critics. Violent films such as the ones i mentioned are always being hailed as innovaters in cinema. Well, these games are the same. WHO-AhH. im tired. i go sleep now. ... i dont really have a point.
