NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

GTA knockoff Saints Row 2 launches today, and a spokesman for the NYPD has criticized THQ’s new crime game for its graphic depictions of virtual violence against police officers.

As reported by the New York Daily News:

A blood-soaked new video game boasts enough violence, guns and gratuitous sex to make Grand Theft Auto seem as tame as Pac-Man – and it has cops hopping mad.

The over-the-top Saints Row 2 encourages players to butcher cops with chain saws, smoke drugs, annihilate rival gangsters and run prostitution rings… Many in law enforcement and politics don’t find any of it remotely entertaining.

Patrick Lynch, who heads the NYPD union, told the Daily News:

These horrible and violent video games desensitize young people to violence while encouraging depravity, immorality while glorifying criminal behavior.

The newspaper also has a quote from our old pal Jack Thompson:

Jack Thompson, a Florida lawyer and longtime critic of violent video games, called Saints Row 2 a "Grand Theft Auto ripoff."

"As is true with pornography, as is true with violence, the subsequent products tend to push the envelope even more," he said.

An unnamed THQ spokesman defended SR2:

Saints Row 2 is not a gang simulation game. It’s a tongue-in-cheek game.
 

Meanwhile, the Daily News does acknowledge some of the satirical elements in the game:

Despite the outrage, some of the scenarios depicted in the game seem hilariously over the top. Players can commit insurance fraud by faking injuries, spraying the contents of a septic tank to bring down property values or appearing on a "Cops"-like reality TV show.

If things get boring, competitors can just strip and run around naked.

     You know he’ll never provide proof.  Jack Thompson doesn’t deal in "facts".  He only deals in "claims".  When you ask him for such things as "evidence" or "proof", he runs and hides.

     

    This is because Jack Thompson is at heart an idiot and a coward.  Idiot because he thinks he can get away with his wild accusations without someone fact checking him, and coward because he thinks he can silence those that fact check him or call him on his idiocy with baseless legal threats.

    Jack, if you were the video game industries’ "worst nightmare" than how is it that right now, at this very moment, I am able to legally play GTAIV on my Playstation 3? Riddle me that asshole. Oh, and the fact that you think any of have any reason to feel inferior to the likes of you is just delicious. Yeah, I should feel disgraced that I’m not a soon to be disbarred, narcisistic hack of an attorney with a god-complex. Riiighht.

     Look Jack, get a life. We heard you talking for years and years about the same topics and nothing, I repeat (I’ll use CAPITALS so you can’t miss it) NOTHING HAS CHANGED! You have to realize that you’re biting off more than you can chew. I’m a christian, but I have no aversion to any type of virtual violence. Why not concentrate on REAL violence? Why not be a REAL lawyer for your remaining days and actually bring well deserved justice to people. Oh wait a minute, you’re just a troll. A silly, senile, sociopathic, media attention seeking whore with nothing better to do. There are other evils in the world besides videogames. Seriously, try to do something worthwhile. Actually do a good thing, donate to a charity or something. Do something that actually garners something happy and good. Conformity is gone, the 50’s are gone, your bar liscence will be gone, so by god, do something else. Don’t waste our time.

    I’m sure that the devloper and THQ know that its a GTA rip off, but honestly, I don’t think they care.  Heh, besides, what they’re more focused on is all the free publicty that Jack and the NYPD Officer here are providing.

    Whenever I hear these comments I just cringe, because it always shows that the content aims at the lowest common denominator. The comments seem to be written by children and that is usually who they aim those particular comments at because they want them to believe that there is something more extreme. Regardless the content has been described as ‘over-the-top’ and quite far removed from realism. Although the creators are loving this, because it helps to prevent the game being cast off as a GTA rip-off (which it is).

    Thats more then likely.  Most people, not all tend to think consoles are intended for children and such, really is kinda sterotypical if you ask me, but yeah, thats probably it.

    The PC doesn’t seem to come up anywhere near as often as named consoles. It runs away when people realise you can mod PC titles to increase violence or decrease personal cover, but everyone seems to ignore the PC as a source of moral corruption.

    Hot Coffee on the PC is a download and execute patch. Hot Coffee on consoles is an involved affair, or at least requires a memhack system. Maybe it has something to do with the internet. "PC gamers can look at boobies in Oblivion!" Ooh, scary. Fire up Firefox and they can see them in HD.

    Aside: SR2 is out for you guys already? Aww. I have to wait. :-(

    From the NYDN article:

    "Players earn money or street credibility in a host of criminal and despicable ways, like mutilating cops and enslaving women."

    Mutilate cops?  Meaning you can do more than just use a large array of weapons that lead to death?  You can, in effect, injure them leaving them mutilated?

    Enslave women?  Wow! And how, exactly, would that be accomplished?

    If someone has an actual link to those to abilities in the game, please pass them on.  Thanks.

    And I see they are still going on about the Governor’s law.  The one that just said what already existed without his doing squat.   But he needed something to wave for the next election.

    Here we go again with the violent video game broken record.  *sigh*  I get that cops wouldn’t want to play this game, but is it REALLY any different than movies showing corrupt police officers and horrific acts done to police officers?  Resevoir Dogs anyone?

    @ JT

    Sir you are irrelevant.  Here’s a couple of reasons off the top of the list why:

    1.  As of October 24th no longer a licensed, practicing attorney.

    2.  No acknowledgement from peers to "leading the anti-video game charge".

    3.  Have allowed members of the "ultra-violent" video game loving fans of GP have done more to keep video games in the appropriate people’s hands than you.  I.E. Nightwing2000 has done more than you have to protect kids from violent video games and educate parents than you have.  THAT is a fact.  Check the same thread you were trolling yesterday and you’ll find HE emailed Wal-Mart about their clerical error.

    ‘Jack Thompson, a Florida lawyer and longtime critic of violent video games, called Saints Row 2 a "Grand Theft Auto ripoff."’

    You are just NOW figuring this out? Even I knew it was a GTA knock off when the first one came out. But then again, you always had a hard on for Grand Theft Auto, Rockstar Games, and Take Two Interactive. All this is, is a cry of ‘look at me!! look at me!!’ before you are offically disbarred, and everybody that ran to you before, decide to run elsewhere and ignore you. Even though you would never actually admit to it. You would come here and insult us instead, becuase you never had nothing else better to do. ‘Course, It would be a bad day for you if you came on here one day and everyone here (including me)) actually ignored you. You need this site and others like it.  You seem to enjoy all the replies to your insults, and then blame us for being ‘obsessed.’ If we are so ‘obsessed,’ Then why are you here almost all the time?

    BTW, I ain’t your ‘honey’ or ‘sweety.’ Talking like that makes you look like an old pervert. An old pervert whose fifteen minutes were over about a year ago. And yes, I have one of those countdown timers.

    Enjoy the ‘eleven days, twelve hours, and twenty-one minutes’ untill YOU are offically disbarred. :)

    If only that were true then I’d probably buy the game. For the sake of an argument we’re going to assume he means the GTA IV not the original GTA. Anyway GTA IV is ‘worse’ than Saint’s row 2 because Saints Row Two is over the top to the point of being comical whereas GTA IV tries to be realistic and gritty (and pulls it off nicely). It wouldn’t be that much of a stretch to compare Saint’s Row to the three Stooges, (if the stooges had guns, and committed random crimes).

    Leet Gamer Jargon says:

    Hello, class. Today, we will be dissecting and studying the rare North American crazy video game lawyer (also known as attorneum disgraceus desperatum, in scientific wording) and its typical ranting. Now, if you will all please turn to page 1,337 and pick up your scalpels and tongs, we can begin.

    Dear Moron Nightwing

    Notice the disgusting, guttural sound it makes when threatening someone. It makes one of these sounds the most, especially because it feels threaten by those it attacks.

    It wasn’t a site error.  It was intentional.

    Observe how it makes assumptions based on its false intellect. Though presented with evidence of an event contrary to its views, it will completely ignore it and growl some nonsensical sound, possibly to declare the opposite of what it was told.

    You don’t know what I know.

    Again, it feigns intelligence through manipulations of its vocal chords, probably to resemble a more intelligent creature…a banana slug, for example.

    I am the all-time King of All Media for getting him off the air.

    Look, class! Watch as it puffs out its chest to seem bigger and more important that it really is. It may do this as either a show of strength or to attract a mate. Whether said mate is of the same or opposite sex, scientists have not been able to figure out. But, my, what a spectacle!

    And I am also quoted in the New York Daily News, and you’re not.  I just get more relevant and more powerful every single day, dispite this temporary, soon to be blocked, disbarment.

    It again feigns importance and intelligence, citing a stray leaf as proof of its might. It also likes to perch itself upon the tallest branch of the tallest tree and croak loudly, attempting to gain attention, even when seemingly in danger of being killed and/or eaten by larger, more powerful predators. The most common predators this amphibious creature enjoys to combat with are the Floridian eagles, also known as judgejurem bareum florideus. Though our amphibian-like creature combats these strong predators at a moment’s whim, the eagles (which travel in packs, in order to care for one another) easily tear it apart time and again, devouring its flesh in a matter of minutes.

    Is this a great country, or what?  Jack Thompson, Your worst nightmare

    It once more proclaims its greatness, bellowing its name and beating its chest to seem threatening. Wait…do you hear that, students?…Listen carefully, for it may say its name…..It seems to be saying…"Juh-hackg Tuh-hump-sun"…Hmm…I wonder what that means?

    Brrring! Whoops! Class is over. For homework, write a three-page minimum paper about our little creature today, including its appearance, animal calls, and why it is quickly becoming extinct. Write quickly, class, because if my calculations are correct, it may be extinct by the end of October. The paper is due the Friday of next week. Have a nice day!

    ~Game on, brothers and sisters.~

    You know I’ve always imagined that my "worst nightmare" would fail a lot less.  Or at least succeed on occasion.  Or at least once.

    Also, last I checked Stern is still on the air, and making a lot more money than he used to.

    And lastly as far as "you don’t know what I know", you don’t know shit.  If you did I’m sure you would tell us all about it.  We aren’t interested in your senile conspiracy theories about the Gay-Walmart-video game industry-Florida bar union that exists only in your mind.  What happened on the Walmart website was an oversight, one that has been resolved:

    "I am the all-time King of All Media for getting him off the air."

    Self-titling doesn’t mean the title exists, Mr. Thompson. I don’t mentally pleasure myself giving myself those over-the-top fictional titles just to make myself feel special.

    "And I am also quoted in the New York Daily News, and you’re not."

    Just like you being on other programs, its irrelevant to any case that you make.

    You ARE going to be disbarred, you’re NOT relevant, you’re just an amusing clown. Take your ‘The End Is Nigh’ sign and go stand out on the street corner with the rest of the jobless crazies.

    1. I have a life and you don’t. I have respect and you don’t. And lastly, I win and you don’t. How do I win? Because nothing you can possibly do can get to me or harm me in any way. Just like all of us here! You cannot touch us! I want to pity you, but my pity is lost; you are unworthy of a license of law, and you are unworthy of my pity or sympathy. Sure, your name may pop up here and there, but eventually, your name will become as of nothing. I’m not sure what had happened to you, but your life will be built of nothing but legal failure.

    2. Your disbarrment will be blocked? Funny. You’re like a Greek myth, though sadly, I cannot remember his name. He was taken to Hades and was to be punished. His punishment was he could never eat, and never drink. Whenever he tried to reach the fruits of the tree, its branches would lift out of his reach. When he would try to take a drink, the water would lower to the point where he could not drink. That is you; no matter how desperately you want, how desperately you strive for your goals, you can never obtain them, because there is always something beyond you.

    And 3. It is a great country, because I’m willing to bet somewhere, you could be sued for something. I’m sure of it. Especially now that you’ll have your license revoked; be careful now. You’re about as much of a nightmare as a wet dream with my girlfriend.

    True, I don’t waste efforts with baffoonish conspiracy theories on site errors.  Possible hack?  Yes, you are, and yes, the site could possibly have been.  So, no, the childish "you don’t know what I know!  😛 " is unimpressive.

    Oh, and I saw your response to the big Federal Case.  Yeah, more childishness.  "Nuh uh!  I didn’t have ‘reasonable opportunity’!  Nuh uh!  The court didn’t say I could file my defense documents by having another attorney file ’em!  Nuh uh!"  Say bye-bye to that case.  Tom Hall beat you in another Federal case of yours and you threw and tantrum and took your ball and went home proclaiming you still won.  Let’s watch this happen again in this big (as in 77 defendants) one.

    You got quoted in the NYDN??!!!  OMG!   :: Snort ::  As the Church Lady used to say "Well, isn’t that special?!" 

    I’m as impressed with that as I am with a police officer declaring, indirectly, that he is the long arm of religious doctrine by declaring that Saints Row 2 promotes "immorality".  I’ve seen what "morality" equals from you (lies, deceit, bigtory, hate, dishonor, etc) and I’ve seen the way the NYPD has been going over the years.  I don’t think either you or they know what "morality" really, truly is.

    Go back to helping Daddy Gorman get his rapist son out of jail just to try to save your pathetic career.  It’s all you’ve got left.  And it’ll keep you busy til the 25th.  Idle hands and all.  But then, you are the tool of a Demon-Pretender-To-The-Throne-Of-Heaven after all.

    1. Saint’s Row got a Mature Rating for Mature Content. Videogames on the market NEVER have Adult Content or else it would be classed as Adults Only.

     

     

    2. Saint’s Row 2 is also going to be avaliable in Australia, a country where the Classification is only as high as MA15+.

     

    3. If you are so strongly going to talk about the game, at least play the game first you soon to be dissbarred lawyer.

     

     

    and 

      

    4. I have a job just cleaning a coffie shop but at least that is an honest living and you are soon not going to have a job after October.

    Thank you E.Zachary Knight for saying one of the best comments here.

    drawing a like between the boundry of religion and the bounds of your job is a really good thing to take in mind.

    Too often people in politics all over the world have never really understood where and where not to use their religion in their job.

    …Thank you. Thank you for not forcing your religion upon others. Thank you for respecting others’ views without putting their intelligence into question (unlike some specific persons) and saying that they will ‘be damned to Hell’ for not believing in what you believe in. Thank you for knowing how to separate your religion and occupation.

    Here; have a cookie. They’re oatmeal raisin, and they’re soft and warm. By the time you finish a cookie, you’ll feel right as rain.

    1. You are quite old, Mr. Thompson. You’re well into your 50s, and you’re already showing signs of senility.

    2. Yes, because that’s all you are: a royal pain in the butt. Nothing more.

    3. EZK is a moderator who knows how to separate occupation from religion (as evidenced by his previous post above). You, on the other hand, tried to stop your disbarment, using the claim that the Bar was hating on you because you’re a Christian. How pathetic: Christ will not shield you from yourself.

    4. Piss off, you old, pal-like fucktard. (God, I’m starting to love that word. )

    Game on, brothers and sisters.

    Jack Jack Jack. You realize you remind me of the P.M.R.C. Alot of noise about controling or censoring content, and what actually happened? The advisory stickers went on the records and the records went on to sell Hundreds of thousands more then they probably would have.

    To quote one of my favorite rap songs. "Can’t you see, you alcoholic idiots? The more you try to surpress us the larger we get."- Ice-T "Freedom of speech" (Just to PISS you off Jack.)

    That’s up to discretion.

    But it’s not libel, if that’s what you’re trying to get at. This is a blog that’s not personally sent to one’s e-mail box whenever someone comments. That’s more along the lines of what YOU do, sending dozens upon dozens of hateful "Imma gonna getcha!!!" e-mails lined with infantile insults like a child who didn’t get his dessert, and calling it ‘professional.’

     Jack, aside from being a serial liar, bully, failed author, and a failed lawyer…  you’re old.  You’re more than twice my age, and I’m in my twenties.

     

    Its kinda sad really.  All this time, better than twice as long as I’ve been alive, you’ve been striving for success, and yet all you amount to is epic failure.

    ‘Oh, and Dennis:  I am neither "old" nor your "pal."’

    Actually Jack, last I checked you are well into your 50’s. Sorry, means you are OLD. Welcome to well over the hill, ye old bat.

    ‘What I am is a royal pain in your industry’s butt.’

    Nah not even. Remember? The videogame industry practically and essentially, ignores your irrelevant ass. Sadly you are nothing but a grain of sand in their shoe now.

    Hopefully you are starting to concentrate on more things other to spread more lies and misinformation, like actual parenting huh? Go play a disbarment simulator and get real good at it, Jack. Oh? What was that? You did win at that game…..err oh Jack, that was real life not a game. Being a moron in real life has dire consequences! You should certainly learn the difference! :)

    John Bruce,

    I can draw the line between what is within the bounds of my Religion an what is within the bounds of my job. Can you?

    Although I may not like that kind of language, it is within the comment policy of the site and I cannot edit for content like that.

    Hey  Jacko, you have helped sell more violent games than would have been sold altogether had you kept your mouth shut…

    The only thing I keep wondering is when you will be asking the game industry to pay you for services rendered…

    Anyways, thank you for making games like Manhunt and GTA so popular that many similar and more violent games are now being made. This really couldn’t have happened without you… It is really nice that you are glad for helping make all this possible…

    Well enjoy your forced retirement…

    And how is giving a game free publicity being "a royal pain in the industry’s butt"?

    You’re more like a stain on the underwear of life.

    Oh and Jack

     

    Having well respected my own father and his generation, I can say to you that you are nothing but an embarresment to my old man’s generation and their beliefes

     

    My father used to say to me to admit when you are wrong and move on with your life.

     

    You never do that and worst of all, I think you need to focus on raising your son into being a good person instead of going on a moral crusade to be the parent of everyone’s children.

     

    Because what is worse?

     

    a. You getting disbarred from the Florida Bar

     

    or

     

    b. Your son hating you for the rest of your life because you have tried to be a bully to the Videogame industry and not focusing on parenting your own son.

    am neither "old"  – again.. dont like playing with facts do you…

     nor your "pal." – agreed on this one however.. why the heck would anyone want ‘crazy o’l thompson’ as their pal?

     

    As far as being a pain in the industries butt though..  err what? They save THOUSANDS with all the free publicity you generate, and gamers love you because your a hilarious dumbass, who can never reply to any post that destroys the current ludicrous argument you are posting, giving a new definition to the words ‘ignorant old fool’.

     

    congrats.

    Nekowolf, the Greek tragic soul you speak of is Tantalus.

    But come to think of it, Thompson might also have a hint of Sisyphus, the guy who had to move a boulder up a hill only for it to roll back down. Over and over again. Only in Thompson’s case, it’s like all this (figurately speaking, of course, Jack):

    –He’s getting weaker every time.

    –That boulder’s getting bigger every time.

    –That boulder’s rolling farther downward every time.

    –And quite probably, that boulder will ultimately flatten him.

    What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

    By the way, Jacky Boy: You didn’t get Stern kicked off anything. And your beloved late Ed Bradley interviewed Stern on your precious little 60 Minutes you like promoting, as if being on that 40-year-old worthless show really means anything.

    Like the voices in the cornfield say, "If you build it, they will come."

    1)  You didn’t force him to move to satellite radio.

    2)  You didn’t get him kicked off of two (2) radio stations in Florida.

    3)  You are not the reason for his declining audience.  It has to do with the fact that XM subscribers now have to pay extra to hear him on top of the monthly subscription fee.

    4)  How is this related to the topic?

    Here’s the thing: He’s so obsessed with it, that if we DON’T respond, he just screams even louder, saying we’re ‘afraid of him.’ Trust me, we’ve tried over the years. That’s just how he works.

    Why do people feed the troll so much?

    If you just let him have his mad rants, removing anything against the posting rules, obviously… then ignore the posts, he won’t react.

    He loves the attention, and has all the hallmarks of a narcissistic personality. All replying does is fuel that.

    He’s had his time, he’s now going to be permanently disbarred, and we can all breathe a sigh of relief that he’s only quarter of the man he used to claim to be.

    The over the top gameplay, much like Grand Theft Auto, ends up being more satire than actual hardcore violence. These things will sell even more now that controversy from the media and actual officials that have a voice in society are having their say in this (unlike a certain senile idiotic crackpot  lawyer we all know).

    Go NYPD, afterall you are promoting the sales for this game! Who needs fancy billboards or magazine ads?
