Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

April 22, 2009 -

Although anti-game activist Jack Thompson's latest campaign to pass video game legislation in Utah got off to a fast start, it is ending both unsuccessfully and with rancor.

In the latest development, GamePolitics has learned that Rep. Mike Morley (R), the Utah House sponsor of the Thompson-authored HB 353, circulated an e-mail to his legislative colleagues last week in which he apologized for Thompson's behavior.

Morley's apology came in response to the flap caused by an Easter Sunday e-mail sent by Thompson to numerous Utah legislators. The e-mail, which ultimately prompted State Sen. President Michael Waddoups (R) to threaten Thompson with prosecution, depicted GTA IV 's Nico Bellic receiving a lap dance from a pair of strippers. Thompson also included links to videos of graphic GTA IV content.

Here is Morley's e-mail:

Subject: My apologies for Jack Thompson
Dear Fellow House Members:

Over the past few days, I have received three emails from Jack Thompson regarding his concerns about mature video games being sold to minors.  Certainly, I am concerned about the graphic violence and sexuality of some of the mature video games, I am apalled by his use of what I view as pornographic images.  I want to make it clear that I had no previous knowledge of his intention to send the images and I apologize to each of you who received his email and were offended as I was.

Mr. Thompson is a nation [sic] advocate for this cause, but he doesn't speak for me nor do I condone or appreciate his actions nor some his tactics.

Mike Morley

When asked for comment by GamePolitics, Thompson said that he hadn't seen Morley's e-mail and "couldn't care less." Within minutes, however, he fired off an e-mail of his own to Utah largely conservative legislators:

I understand that Mike Morley apologized to you all for the shocking image I sent you of two women in bikinis in a strip club.  Sorry, Utahns, but you can see that on a beach.  To see more explicit material as to what is in the GTA IV game, you had to click on the two links I provided, and that was your choice. I warned you what you would see if  you chose to do so.
 
Mike Morley's apology is ridiculous.  I didn't scandalous [sic] anyone with an image of two clad women.  What is really going on here is that I upset the Republican club that runs Utah, and those in that club are seizing upon this harmless image as a ruse to scold the outsider who unfortunately showed that some in Utah aren't serious about protecting children.  Your Governor isn't serious, and we sure as heck know your AG is not.  Heck, he takes money from the video game industry to say how well the ratings are working... Incredible.
 
The only apology that is owed is by each of you for not insisting upon an override session [of Gov. Huntsman's HB 353 veto]...  Your family values stance is a sham.  

GP: Pictured: Gov. Huntsman, Rep. Morley, Utah Eagle Forum President Gayle Ruzicka, Thompson.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

So, I'm confused.

Is the game "pornography" or isn't it?*

Jack has been going on and on and on about the "pornographic hyperviolent GTAIV" for what seems like forever now.  Then when he sends out an e-mail with the examples of the "porn" he backpedals and says it's not pornography.

You can't haven't both ways, Jack.  Either you sent porn to the Utah legislators or the game isn't porn.

 

*note:  I realize the game is not pornographic, nor does it meet the legal definition of such.  I'd just love to see Thompson clarify his idiocy.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

lol

Well the image of a computer generated male getting a lap dance from two computer generated strippers is not really pornagraphic, but it sure can offend allot of people in political power.

But to say that it should be banned from Videogames is going a bit too far.

All I can say is, that the USA Videogame Market should just apply the AO18+ rating to be sold commercially, or else the developers and the ESRB will just have to deal with the rating limits and what some would consider as AO18+ material gets in with an M17+ rating because that is as high as a comercially sold game can handle.

 

Also I have seen the movie "The Girl Next Door" and it was a movie that was rated MA15+ by Australia's OFLC and it has a brief 1 minute of lap dancing in it, as well as another movie StripTease or even ShowGirl that got passed with a similar mature rating back 10 years ago and that also featured bare breasts and lap dancing.

 

So really, I can't see anything wrong with the lap dancing except that people with a brain should be smart enough NOT to send it to all the politicians in Utah unless if they are looking for real trouble.

 

Maybe it is because these older people's head's explode every time they see such a scene because when they were growing up society was allot more conservative and also, a little more bad in other areas, and sadly we are dealing with what one man sees as offensive another 10 or 20 people think it is not really that much of a fuss at all.

 

Simple rule, Mature rated games are not really meant to be played by kids.

But it is not really adult rated at all too.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

Wow. WOW.

Just WOW

As others have said, this isnt bridge burning, this is total, unreserved scorched earth.

Jack is out of Utah for the rest of his days.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

I guessed before that Jack was capable of pissing off even fellow right-wing conservatives who could easily be his allies in his crusade.

I never thought that he would do it so spectacularly.

Question: Until now, why hasn't anyone sued Jack for stuff like this?  I'm not referring to legal disciplining and disbarment, I mean suing him for insulting you publicly and unapologetically (libel? slander? being an a-hole?).  What he just did is say that the people in the Utah government are all immoral liars.  If I was one of them, whether honest or dishonest, fanatical or reasonable, I certainly wouldn't allow him to besmirch my name or office.

I admit it'd be dignifying Jack Boy's rants, but- really- someone should put him in his place.  Jack Bruce Thompson really has to learn that there are consequences for one's deeds, especially malicious and irresponsible ones, if not for his good but for the good of us all.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

People have sued him.  Norm Kent won a $10,000 award against Thompson during Thompson vs. Florida Bar round 1.

I think most people just want Thompson out of their lives, and filing a lawsuit against him will only serve to INCREASE the bullying "press releases" and e-mail spam attacks that he's capable of.  It's obvious Thompson doesn't listen to judges' orders, but you'd think one of them would have manned up and cited him for contempt of court.

This is why any time someone comes in to a forum and says, "You should just ignore Thompson and he'll go away," it's obvious they don't know what they're talking about.  Everyone has tried to ignore Thompson and in doing so, the are culpable in this growing problem.  He never stopped harrassing his targets and he used it as gusto to add more people to his list.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

If ignoring him only makes the Thompson problem worse, then suing him is definitely the right course of action.  Wouldn't him applying his bully tactics against you only strengthen your case, or give you reason to sue him again for harrassment?  That he does it by e-mail or telephone, and often, only makes gathering evidence for your case easier.

I understand that this guy can really lay on the emotional abuse, but the more he does his thing, the more reason you give the courts to decide in your favor.  At a certain point, if he just doesn't stop, the court will really have to throw the book at him.  The more chances he has to completely ignore judges and court orders, the more likely someone will place him under contempt, complete with jail time.

Honestly, I don't think people should sue him just to give him more rope to hang himself with.  I think people should sue him for the distress he has dealt and the disrespect he's shown.  Most of the people he has attacked and insulted deserve justice- and so does Jack Boy.

Besides- by now, his list of "enemies" is so long, I doubt he has the time or energy to harrass all or most of them (just the most recent ones).  Even he can't be manic enough to do it.  I'm guessing his old "foes", like the NIMF, don't hear from him any more.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

It's possible they are trying to ignore him because he is bad news currently. That's propably the reason why they don't want to bother with governor's veto. Cleaning this mess up and waiting for the dust to fall is best choice right now.

And if some people want to make their own version of that law, it's more easy to try again next year, when people have forgotten this mess.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

It baffles me as well.  The only reason that makes sense to me is that Jack has such a soiled reputation now that people feel that suing him is a waste of time.  Plus, he would likely go batshit crazy if he was sued and cause more grief and harrassment towards that party that it isn't worth it.

However, with his pathological behavior, it has to happen someday...

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

Well, I hope they accept Morley's apology (although he's hardly to blame for Thompson's antics).

Jack should write another book: "How to offend and lose your allies in three emails or less." This would sell marginally better than the first.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

After he writes "How To Lose Your Law License".

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

Email settings-->block sender--> Jack Thompson-->Problem solved

Also, do people not proof read emails anymore?

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

These are people who think the universe is 6000 years old and that sexuality is evil.  Expecting them to understand email settings is unreasonable.  (yes, this post is full of generalizations, deal with it)

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

Not sure if you are still following this but here goes:

The majority of people living in Utah are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. So I will be speaking as a member of that church. These views do not represent Christianity as a whole.

We do not believe that the universe is only 6000 years old. We understand that everything in the universe has existed for billions of years. How many exactly? We are just as clueless as the scientists. Our scriptures actually tell us that the universe and matter has existed ofr essentially 'forever'. We do believe that mankind has existed for roughly 6000 years based on the history contained in the Bible. Take that how you want.

As for sexuality, it is not evil. In fact it is a good thing. But it is also sacred and should be treated like all sacred things. We beilieve that people should treat their bodies with respect and do the same for others. We believe that sex should only be between a man and a woman who have been lawfully married. We believe that pornography blatantly disrespects the human body and sexuality. That is why it is evil and should be avoided.

That said, as a church we do not feel that people should be compelled to follow these guidelines. People should be free to choose what they do. But as people, we can often get carried away and get a little to fanatical (for a lack of a better word) in our beliefs and create issues like this bill. But the church does not support it.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

I agree with you there.

With certain family members who are more dedicated to religion than I am, I can tell that they do not always revert to that sort of generalization that others so often do in the mainstream public eye.

Not all religious people are fanatics, and not all believe that the earth was only around for only 6,000 years.

At the same time, scientests are not always right in their conclusions but so are religious people too.

We can only talk about what we do know, and sometimes what we do know can only be summed up by the data we have until we gather new evidense.

 

But I can say something too, if it were not for a few members of the christian gaming and also a few members of my external family, I might have thought that all religious people were like JT.

So yeah, perhaps we should not judge people because of the acts of a few idiots.

Same thing with gamers, we are not all idiots like the people portray us on the mainstreem news media, but there are some times when we all can be a little fanatical and annoyed by other people.

 Actually pretty much everyone over 40 who never built a Tandy IBM-PC probably won't understand email settings.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

Anyone who isn't pants-on-head retarded should understand email settings. Most people, even old people, aren't too dumb to understand it, but rather they are too lazy to learn.

UPDATE: Thompson's antics cost HB 353 spot in special session

http://blogs.sltrib.com/utahpolitics/2009/04/how-not-to-help-your-cause.htm

Today, the disbarred Florida attorney sent another plea, this time to Lt. Gov. Gary Herbert, asking the state's No. 2 to intervene and do what he can to push for a veto override session.

That seems exceedingly unlikely. Lawmakers were polled earlier this month and voted to not override the governor's veto on the bill.

What was possible, however, was considering the video game bill during a special session that legislators have asked for in May. But Thompson's ceaseless barrage of emails, many of which have contained examples of the kind of filth in video games that didn't sit well with Utah's conservative standard bearers, have crushed any chance of that happening.

House Majority Leader Kevin Garn said there's no chance legislative leaders will include the video game bill in their agenda for the special session.

"I think [Thompson] has damaged that cause to the point that the Legislature doesn't even want to deal with it now," said Garn.

 

==================

Another fine example of Miami Jack shooting himself in the foot. I guess this pretty much closes the book on this bill.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

It's not just Utah, he doesn't understand how things are done in Florida either, or the legal system in general.

Utah, Florida, legal system...

I think Jack doesn't know even the basics of being a good, decent, polite, responsible, moral person.  This tirade is so wrong in so many ways- and it's the latest in a long line of misdeeds on his part.

But I don't think it's fair from Gayle Ruzkica to single out Thompson for "not understanding how things are done in Utah".

I mean, has Thompson ever understood how things are done anywhere ever?

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

Okay, I'm confused here. Does anyone have a copy of the original email he sent? Because apparently he's claiming the email only had some women in bikinis, while the links he put in the email went to somewhere where the really pornographic stuff was.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

If I remember correctly the email had a couple of links to videos on Youtube of GTA with the strippers and prostitutes.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

It might just more Jack bullishit.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

Ummm guys... I do not know if you noticed something HUGE here, or not. But Jack Thompson said the images he sent were not "pornographic" . However, in his ORGINAL E-Mails to the Utah leaders, did he not say they were considered pornography for children? I mean, the man just contridicted himself big time. He's fighting to get such things banned from games, yet he himself admits they are NOT pornographic... just two girls in bikinis. *scratches her head* It could be me... but this is a HUGE boo boo on his part in his crusade. If any other lawmakers see such statements, could this mean he will lose creditbility amongst them? That he does not know the true meaning of pornography? But hey... what do I know, right?

-Nicole

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

This guy set a speed record for contradicting himself...and for losing allies.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack Thompson

You know, the more he pulls stunts like this, the less credability he will have for trying to pass such bills and create nonsense. If he were a smart man, he would know when to hold his tongue, and not to click his mouse. But thankfully, he is what he is. I mean, if anyone is Louisiana read this, or knew what happened in Utah, that Bill would not move an inch.

Personally, I would not want anyone under 18 to play GTA... but that is not my job. It is not the government's job, it is not Jack Thompson's job. It is the job of the PARENTS to be PARENTS, and monitor what their children play, watch on TV, or read. Video games are not babysitters, and the Government is not your child's parent, that's the person who brought them into this world's job. But until people realize this, tax payer's oney will be wasted on bills like Jack Thompson's, and others. I mean, people need to take resposibility! Sheesh! *goes into her dark corner, now*

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

Jack somehow always finds someone willing to listen to him and overlook his evident past. That´s how Utah bill happened recently.

Now they are even repented after the whole process that only Jack Thompson´s experience can offer to human knowledge.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

 You see guys, Jack is all about living in the moment. Sure, he might say he doesn't care at all about what they say, and then go and send an email to every single one of them, but it's because he's carefree! He doesn't need to worry about what he said 10 minutes ago, because it doesn't matter anymore!

Although, I do give him two thumbs up for using 'couldn't care less' correctly. Every time someone says 'could care less' I want to smack them in the face.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

Utah: Mr. Thompson, we want our Freedom Award back, inmediatly.

Jack: Mmm, OK, take it, I don´t care anymore.

Utah: Well, thanks Mr. Thompson, and, wait... This is a box filled with gay porn!

Jack: (inside a cannon): LOLOLOL, you never get me alive, duurr...

(cannon explodes and launches Jack toward the skies)

Utah: Well, at least he is gone... oh god, where are all the bridges now?

 

Well, I hope that at least the next time somebody is planning another anti-game legislation, don´t invite Jack to their state again, any state.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

Difference is, when you buy the game, you choose to confront those images whereas being Email-bombed by someone who is supposed to be a professional is another matter.

Kind of interesting how these images are 'terrible and depraved' when he posts them and 'harmless' when he's told off for it ;)

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

It was the same thing when he sent gay porn to that judge.

" I am apalled by his use of what I view as pornographic images"

If so, then don't you think Thompson may have a point? If you're so apalled, then shouldn't you be maybe agreeing with Thompson? Also, you're not a child. Stop being "apalled" and "offended" by shit like this. Did you expect images like this to never show up, despite the fact the the bill was dealing with mature games being sold to kids? He even described what the images would be (although that's what he says, and he is a pathalogical liar).

And Thompson, stop sending boarderline pornography to legislators! That's like rule #1 of not pissing off people who you want to support you.

God, I really just want to punch everyone involved in this in the face...

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

There is a diffrence between being appalled by something, and wanting to ban it.

And no, just because he is older, doesn't mean he has to not be offended by images like this. It is completly fine to not want to view stuff like this in your personal life, and you shouldn't expect to be spammed with it by a "Professional". Everyone has their limit of what they find acceptable. Mine is much more tolerant then it should be, but that doesn't mean EVERYONE must like it, I would be no better then Jack at that point...

Also, so what if he finds it offensive? I would hope that personal stuff like that doesn't get in the way of the Constitution... Just because he is offended by it, doesn't mean he should be ok with banning it.

I do agree with you that Thompson should stop sending that stuff to legislators. Most people KNOW whats out there man, and people choose not to view it. Let it be. You have the right to view it or not to, just like you have the right to play or not play video games. Let the PEOPLE choose. We don't need no "Big Brother" state looking over our shoulder telling us Yea or Nay.

P.S. Kudos to the Governor, never got to say it before. He has my vote... If I lived in Utah. Maybe he should come up here to Alaska... I would be suprised if Palin doesn't have some serious challnges ahead.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

Thing is, even Thompson admits that the images are harmless, which is kind of amusing, because it's more or less admitting that he knows there is no 'risk of harm' from the images, and is purely trying to get stuff restricted because it upsets his own personal sense of 'decency'.

So apparently, Thompson's goals move according to how much trouble he's in, I'll agree the legislators shouldn't really get up in arms about the pictures themselves, but it does pretty emphatically highlight the complete shammery of Thompsons' crusade.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

No no jackie can still pull off the bit about getting points for killing prostitues.  btw I still want My points for that.   Where are my points?!  What no points, well hell. 

Remember though a rabble rouser does not need facts.  Basically all he needs is a rabble and something to inflame them about.  The truth tends not to be as effective as fiction in that regard, just look at Glenn Beck.

Re: Utah Bill Sponsor Apologizes to Colleagues for Jack ...

I love his to-and-froing on whether or not GTA is pornographic. He sends a mail saying "look at the prongraphic material we need to protect kids from!" and when they are offended, it's suddenly become a non-pornographic image of 2 "clad women". I know for a fact as well, having played the damn game, that there is no worse or more explicit content in the game, so he's really shooting himself in the foot with this.

The rest of it is Jack by numbers. Anyone who disargrees with him or finds fault with his methods and ad hominem attacks is instantly decreed to be in the pocket of the video games industry...

It's hilarious as well how quick he spins from "Couldn't care less" to "outright attack on these people!". The man just can't stop lying.

E. Zachary KnightIf you are downloading a copy in order to bypass the DRM, then you are legally in the wrong. Ethically, if you bought the game, it doesn't matter where you download it in the future.12/19/2014 - 12:06pm
InfophileEZK: Certainly better that way, though not foolproof. Makes me think though: does it count as piracy if you download a game you already paid for, just not from the place you paid for it at? Ethically, I'd say no, but legally, probably yes.12/19/2014 - 11:20am

MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/12/19/marvel-vs-capcom-origins-leaving-online-storefronts-soon/ Speaking of "last chance to buy", Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is getting delisted from all major storefronts. Behold the wonders of the all digital future.12/19/2014 - 9:59am
MaskedPixelanteSeriously, the so-called "Last Chance" sale was up to 80% off, while this one time only return sale goes for a flat 85% off with a 90% off upgrade if you buy the whole catalogue.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
