If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does it Make a Sound?

June 28, 2008 -

GamePolitics reported on a pair of tempests involving Grand Theft Auto IV this week.

First came Wednesday's report on shoot-from-the-lip comments attributed to Connecticut State Sen. Gayle Slossberg (D), who apparently used the terms Grand Theft Auto IV, rape, legislation and sociopaths [as in GTA gamers are...] in a rant that she only thought was off-the-record.

Oops...

A day later, cops in Nassau County, New York busted six teenagers for a bat-swinging, crowbar-wielding rampage that one of them apparently said was inspired by Nico Bellic, protagonist of GTA IV.

The week's happenings - in particular their sizeable publicity potential - were not lost on GTA-hatin' attorney Jack Thompson, who has waded into both situations with press releases blazing.

First, Thompson dashed off a breathless paean to Sen. Slossberg:

I commend you for your concerns about the Grand Theft Auto games.  I have been on 60 Minutes about the killing of police officers by teens who train on the game to do so.  I have addressed NOW in New York about the targeting of women by the game.
 
I do not believe there is a "rape" in the game, unless it is in a mission that has yet been discovered (that is possible), but there is plenty in the game by way of forced sex, killing of women after sex, and murdering police officers that must be addressed.  I am, for better or worse, the leader of the effort against this game, and if you saw the New York Post yesterday, a gang of teens went on a crime spree on Long Island in acting out the game!  Please contact me asap, and I can help on this.
 

Miami Jack, please explain how there is no rape in the game, but there is "forced sex"?

The likely-to-be-disbarred barrister also weighed in on the Nassau Six, cc'ing GP on an exchange with someone at G4TV. Not surprisingly, the camera-cravin' Thompson hopes to grab some air time for his mug:

...G4TV, as usual, gets it wrong.  Why am I not suprised?  The headline on this story is ridiculous.  The "hoods" are not the ones blaming the game.  The cops are!  Note this from Detective Cote: "These teens have difficulty separating fact from fiction, fantasy from reality . . . It was quite alarming." 

 

...Thus, Cote has handed all of the defendants a "video game defense."  It will be used.  How do I know?  Wouldn't you like to know.
 
I think it is time for Jack Thompson to be back on G4TV, don't you all think.  There's so much disinformation on the channel and so little time to correct it all.  Somebody tell Kevin to get off his lazy butt and give me a call...

Oop! There goes old Whacko on a slandering spree. Who would win in a court, do you think would win in a court battle?  A discredited about-to-be-disbarred religion-fucked old hack or us?  Cue - it ain't the one who won't take a sanity test.

You mean 'won't take a sanity test unless he already knows the tester', right? Cause he'll totally take one, but only if he gets to pick the tester.

Wait, what do you mean it skews/invalidates the results?! I don't know what' you're talking about!

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

It's called a JOKE, Mr. Thompson. Learn to TAKE one, for once in your life.

He's making a suggestion, because, as we all know, we can't take anything you say seriously. He's not calling you out, or reporting you, or whatever. For an attorney, you're getting pretty paranoid about what us 'e-tard gamers' can do. Isn't that what you say about US when we talk to you?

Dennis isn't responsible for what people post. Except for you, since you're IP-banned and posting through a proxy. I also enjoy how you think Dennis' lawyer will automatically be a woman. Would you be pulling another stunt you pulled in your bar trial, using your 'authority' to 'put down,' for lack of a better term, a woman to further your agenda?

I suppose you'll be looking to sue ME for libel about that statement as well? Oh, OK. 'Figuratively.' It's all better now, right?

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

If you, Dennis, don' t know the difference between forced sex and rape, then you really are a naif.

.... I really shouldn't be surprised that this is coming from someone who frequently tries to re-define words and ... I don't know how to put it other then WTF is going on in this very disturbed individuals mind when they keep seeing and calming things that don't exist, nor would what they claim be considered such by todays standards.

Well, maybe I could put it along the line of this; it is ALMOST like some Amish person saying that showing an ankle is hard core pornography....  Now that reminds me of the whole non-existent Bully controversy, where two guys kissing somehow makes it an instant Mature/Adults-Only PORNOGRAPHY!!!

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

There's a difference between forced sex and rape? A phrase and a word that both describe the exact same thing, and there's a difference? How, Jack?

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

You said it yourself: one's a word, the other is a phrase.

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

"If you, Dennis, don' t know the difference between forced sex and rape, then you really are a naif."

rape
 -noun
  any act of sexual intercourse that is forced upon a person.
 -verb
  to force to have sexual intercourse.

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

oh almost for got this bit

"If you, Dennis, don' t know the difference between forced sex and rape....."

Mr Thompson is totally right guys come on, give him credit here. If you all get out your 'How to be a Lawyer and a Clown, a step by step guide:' textbooks, and turn to chapter 10, its totally all there.

 

 

See , 'CHAPTER 10 - The Playground Defence' - (page 682)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Ignore actually clarifying the issue at hand,  which would clear the matter up in seconds like a professional full time lawyer. Instead, as a lawyer/clown this is in fact a good time to express your inner clowns opinion and do the opposite of what is actually expected. This way you can hide the fact you are wrong under an incredibly believeable facade.

Step 1) Make some comment about the questioners intelligence and avoid the issue, good examples are:

"well if you dont know already, then im not explaining it to you" [Boppo '92]

or alternatively

"I COULD tell you, i just dont WANT to tell you" [Bippo '94] 

Whatever you do, its ESSENTIAL to maintain a completely  unnatural position, and NEVER under any circumstances ACTUALLY explain your previous mistake. This is a FANTASTIC defence to use when you dont actually have an answer to a question, and want to avoid the subject , and emphasise the fact you are a TOTAL clown.

Step 2) If pressed on the subject, shout loudly somnething along the lines of

"Na Na NA.. Na Na NA NA na  Im not listening" [Buggs Bunny '81] (emphasis on the third and fifth 'Na' vowel sounds)

NOTE: This defence ONLY works if you are wearing a red nose AND juggling balls whilst speaking.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

 

...aww crap.. I guess JT was wrong he totally forgot the red nose and juggling balls bit, which means sorry, he doesnt know what hes talking about! damn i feel stupid now. Sorry everyone. Damn you JT you made me look stupid by failing even as a clown.

 

 

 

 

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

''Jack Thompson, Attorney and You're Not "

wow... looks like you forgot something that recently happened to you when you wrote that last insult Mr Thompson. *COUGH* DISBARRMENT STEAMING TOWARD YOU LIKE A 1000 TONNE TRAIN *COUGH*. what are you going to write WHEN it goes ahead?

''Jack Thompson, Disgraced and Disbarred Attorney,  and You're Not "

Wow... uh... im real.. envious? lol nope. your welcome to your status Jack. Enjoy it!. Anyone can be an Attorney,  but it takes a real professional winner, who's totally top of their game, to be a disbarred attorney. Wow. You show em Jack. Heres a sticky gold star to wear on your jacket. Your a very special boy.

Oh n the irony of you calling Dennis a naif. (definition)

naif  
   A adjective
  1  naive, naif
 
      marked by or showing unaffected simplicity and lack of guile or worldly experience;
      "a teenager's naive ignorance of life";
      "the naive assumption that things can only get better"; 
 

AND YOU CALL DENNIS A NAIF??! HAHAH. Your career is going down the pan, and you are internationally ridiculed! yet you STILL like to paint this thin narcissistical veneer over yourself and always seem to claim to have your opponents 'just where you want them', yet strangely never seemingly in the correct place for actual action.  Are you telling me that it honestly isnt you with  "the naive assumption that things can only get better"; . That jack would make you a naif. And a hypocrite. Go look it up. The meaning has eluded you thus far.

heres a phrase id love you to adopt:

''Jack Thompson, the stupid person's idea of a clever person, you can try and see things from his point of view, but i guarantee you couldnt get your head that far up your ass 

 

 

 

 

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

I like the use of the definition to point out Thompson's idiocy. Lemme try.

Difference between forced sex and rape?

Rape
Function: noun
1 : an act or instance of robbing or despoiling or carrying away a person by force                                                  2 : unlawful sexual activity and usually sexual intercourse carried out forcibly or under threat of injury against the will usually of a female or with a person who is beneath a certain age or incapable of valid consent — compare        3 : an outrageous violation

 

Thompson, please look at number 2. "Sexual intercourse carried out forcibly." Forced Sex.

Now please look at number 3. You, Mr. Thompson, are an outageous violation on the human race; rape if you will.

 

OK, so

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

"As to the Long Island crime spree, just wait as to what is going to happen."

 

as for what will happen in long island, they will attempt the video game defense, it will fail, you you will end up looking very stupid

best case scenario all that the video game defense will do is give them a diminished capacity defense, which while they will still be found guilty they could possibly do less time, or spend it in a hospital.  Note however that this will not give anybody a case against R*, T2, or the video game industry any more then the "Twinky Defense" gave anyone a case against Hostess.  Fact of the mater is that if millions of people can use these games with no adverse effect, the small percentage of people able to claim their crime spree was in effect caused by their game play are a very insignifigent minority, who would have most likely ended up comiting the crimes without GTA, which is why this wont open up any real civil maters against the game industry

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

as for what will happen in long island, they will attempt the video game defense, it will fail, you you will end up looking very stupid

You know, your post reminds me of all the attempts Jack has pulled the "just you wait and see" defense only to be flat out wrong.  I'm probably not the only one who remembers his jumping with glee over tragic events, harassing investigators, trying to force his agenda upon them, and ignoring the most likely "what could have caused this" evidence.

Retard ain't got no slashes. Phony ass mutha f-cka.

Where are the slashes? FAKE. Ban him.

If however I'm mistaken, I'd simply like to say you are a fuckin' idiot. You know it, I know it, God knows it.

Not impressed, Jack.  Ever heard of the boy who cried wolf?

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

he did compare himself to Paul Revere, but he's more like the kid who falsely shouted "Fire!" in a crowded theater.

(btw, Revere didn't shout the famous phrase later attributed to him ("The British are coming!"), largely because the mission depended on secrecy and the countryside was filled with British army patrols; also, most colonial residents at the time considered themselves British as they were all legally British subjects. Revere's warning, according to eyewitness accounts of the ride and Revere's own descriptions, was, "The regulars are coming out!")

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

Hmmm.. Seems to me to be a pretty transparent ploy for attention back up for vapid claims and allusions and backed up without a single wisp of fact.

Remember Louisiana, 'I have the secret to blowing those games out of the water, but I won't share it unless you give me lots of exposure'?

Yeah, exactly the same thing, and about as real.

G4 would be well advised to tell Thompson to get stuffed and not pandering to his claims unless he can provide some of this thing that legal people call ev-i-dence, not just 'I'm working with a policeman somewhere on this', because that could mean anything and everything and, in Thompson's case, usually means nothing. For the same reasons he got thrown of air for stating completely un-supported 'facts' after the release of GTA IV, he should not be given the airtime to spew them all over again.

Reality/////////////////////////////////////Fantasy. Seems like a pretty thick line to me...

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

There's one thing I can agree with that the police said about the GTA4 incident:

"These teens have difficulty separating fact from fiction, fantasy from reality . . . It was quite alarming... They were bored and they decided this was a good idea."

But this is a problem that affects all ages. I remember a story on The Daily Show a few years back about a 20 or 30-something who got stuck in a chimney because he wanted to do what Dick Van Dyck did in Mary Poppins - jump down one for those who haven't seen it. This was an adult who was apparently too stupid to realize that one can't do that in a house's chimney.

Did anyone blame Disney or Dick Van Dyck? No.

So why should it be any different for games? The fact is that surveys have shown that even underage teens who play GTA4 and the like enjoy them because they're nothing like real life, and that they know they couldn't do the same things IRL.

Doing something because it's in a game, book, movie, TV show, song, etc. only shows one thing: that the person has deepseated problems differentiating between fiction from reality. It's no different from those people who fall deeply in love with TV characters - not the actors - and try to meet the TV persona in real life. They need counseling and other help, but the medium involved has nothing to do with the problem. They're just as likely to stalk someone real as they are fictional characters.

Or, as Dennis Miller said, "If your child does something because Gene Simmons told him to, look at yourself, not Gene."

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

I agree, when a crime happens, why does most of the blame not go to an origin, and instead goes to the straw that brooke the camel's back? I thought that's what detectives are hired for. To avoid falling back on "easy answers".

If you forward gay porn to a court, or some sort of strange "picture book for adults", for no apparent reason whatsoever...you might be insane.

"There's so much disinformation on the channel and so little time to correct it all."

Most, if not all, spread around by you and your game hating buddies. (OK, read that wrong, I thought he was talking about GTA there. Oh well, it kind of still applies so I'm gonna leave it....)

If a person has the trouble seperating fact and fiction that's the person's own individual problem. It's not the games fault that they recreated it. It's the kid's fault - or at least their messed up brains - for acting it out. Putting the blame on the game is only a pathetic attempt to relieve these people of any responsibility for their own actions.

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

It's interesting that, in his own self-contradictory way. he did acknowledge a dearth of actual rape scenes in the game.  He also refused to weigh in on that whole stupid flap over Mass Effect several months back.  Now, considering JT is a known and infamous liar with an ax to grind, the only explanation I can think of is that he's mad he didn't think of it first.  He was sulking the first time, and now, although he wants to take a mentor position to Slossberg, he needs to show her he's smarter than she is and a better leader by correcting a statement of hers.

Just speculating, pure lunacy is also a very likely possibility.

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

Actually, he DID. He thought Fox News was crazy claiming that too.

He just has a vendetta against T2, you know that.

Rape =/= Forced Sex, huh?...

Well, at least that's what Jack Thompson thinks.

Ah, hell, this is the same man who claimed that boys kissing in the game "Bully" equated to gay sex. What more can I say?

Re: If There's a GTA IV Controversy WITHOUT Jack Thompson, Does

So will we start referring to him as a disbarrister then?

He MIGHT be getting confused about the difference between forced sex & forceful sex, if you recall the intro, the first thing you see is a restrained guy being whipped by a chick. In fine tradition though he's being his usual duplicitous, attention starved self & really needs a tinfoil fedora.
