NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

October 14, 2008 -

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.

Query: Should "Christians" facilitate the accusing of gamers on the Internet being "potheads" or "high on crystal meth"?  Just asking.

So you're saying you're a fresh hemroid?  Glad to see we can agree on something.

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.'

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

 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.

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

'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! :)

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.

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

...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.

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

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...

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

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.

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.

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.

you didn't get Stern off the air, he voluntarily left due to management and lengthy commercial breaks. Those factors weighed into his decision to start anew on Sirius.

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

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!

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

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:

Jack, Jack, Jack, what you don't know could fill many books.  As for getting more powerful and relevant, yeah, we'll see after your disbarred, permently.

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

"You don't know what I know?"

Oh, yeah freaking right. What, did you get some sort of apology letter and compensation from Wal-Mart? Did they give you a medal? You just sound like every other conspiracy nutter.

"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.

Are you scared that some supposed 'gamer pothead' (another fact you made up) would show the world your pathological lies? Who's the coward?

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

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.

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

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.

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

Jack.. regarding the newspaper quoting you, the newspaper quotes you as

 

' a Florida lawyer '

 

Wow  , they have done so much research about you havent they.  What a quality paper to brag about being quoted in.

 

ill email them to see if they can correct the quote to

 

' a disgraced Florida lawyer, recently disbarred for harrassment and dishonesty '

Re: NYPD Spokesman Outraged by Saints Row 2

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!  :P " 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.

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.

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?

MaskedPixelanteAnother round of Night Dive teasing and promising turns out to be stupid edutainment games. Thanks for wasting all our time, guys. See you never.04/17/2014 - 3:44pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the consequences were not only foreseeable, but very likely. anyone who understood supply demand curvs knew that was going to happen. SF has been a econ/trade hub for the last hundred years.04/17/2014 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenMixedPixelante - Would you like to expand on that?04/17/2014 - 2:43pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, I am officially done with Night Dive Studios. Unless they can bring something worthwhile back, I'm never buying another game from them.04/17/2014 - 2:29pm

NeenekoAh yes, because by building something nice they were just asking for people to come push them out. Consequences are protested all the time when other people are implementing them.04/17/2014 - 2:06pm
Matthew Wilsonok than they should not protest when the consequences of that choice occur.04/17/2014 - 1:06pm
NeenekoIf people want tall buildings, plenty of other cities with them. Part of freedom and markets is communities deciding what they do and do not want built in their collective space.04/17/2014 - 12:55pm
Sora-ChanI realize that they have ways getting around it, but one reason might be due to earthquakes.04/17/2014 - 4:42am
Matthew WilsonSF is a tech/ economic/ trade center it should be mostly tail building. this whole problem is because of the lack of tail buildings. How would having tail apartment buildings destroy SF? having tail buildings has not runed other cities around the US/world04/16/2014 - 10:51pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the issue is you can not build upwards anywhere in SF at the moment, and no you would not. You would bring prices to where they should have been before the market distortion. those prices are not economic or socially healthy.04/16/2014 - 10:46pm
ZippyDSMleeYou still wind up pushing people out of the non high rise aeras but tis least damage you can do all things considered.04/16/2014 - 10:26pm
ZippyDSMleeANd by mindlessly building upward you make it like every place else hurting property prices,ect,ect. You'll have to slowly segment the region into aeras where you will never build upward then alow some aeras to build upward.04/16/2014 - 10:25pm
