He won't win.

No sh*t.

 

Jack Thompson ran out of GTA games to go against, now he's suing the people who sell it.

 

I might send an email to him telling him in a mature manner, of how senseless his lawsuits are, and how stupid these accusations proceed.

 

You wait and see.

Yeah, and then he'll quote the bible and threaten to rain fire on you and your family for being sinners or something like that.

 

People have tried to reason with this butthole before, he never sees the light. He belongs in a padded room, not in a court of law.

Haha, I just hope he does that, so I can post all about it in here.

I don't see how sending sex aids to his wife is illegal, though.

It falls under harassment laws... and he really does have every right to be upset about the things people are doing to him and his family, even if he is an audacious prick. Business is one thing, upsetting personal life is just sick.

sent dozens of items to Thompson’s home and office via overnight courier and mail, sent sex aid products to his wife, threatened Thompson’s son, shot at his home, sought to incarcerate Thompson

 

Poor ol' Jack fights against violence and his house gets shot at. I dont like Jack Thompson too much but this is way too ridicolous. Wonder if he's going to stop with it now. He would be considered crazy if he didnt.

Is there a limit to how many people or organizations you can sue at the same time? Seems like Jack wants to make a new record.

 

I'm not agreeing with messing up his personal life. Even worse when it is done to family members. icon13.gif

Man I am so tired of Jack Thompson. He really needs to st his ass down somewhere and give it up. No matter what he does, it's not going to change anything, and that has been proven a few good times. I know these Judges at these courts are tired of seeing his damn face.

He really doesn't know when to stop. It is sad to see his family being harrased, but he kinda asked for it to happen. When you try that hard to take away something with so many fans/fanboys/worshippers, you are asking to get f*cked. Like pretty much everything with a big fanbase, GTA has many rabid fans. He should know, seeing as Gta is the root of all evil sarcasm.gif

He's a nuisance, but i'm not sure i see the point in mailing dildos to his wife...

Jack spends mroe time with Take Two then with his wife. She needs some loving too. And Jack isn't around the serve it.

Yeah i agree that its messed up for people to do that to him but how f*cking naive do you have to be to not expect that? I mean rockstar has a huge fanbase, and this guy is going around pissing most of them off. Then its look "Oh my me, why are all these people oh so troubled with my actions???"

 

And people have shot at his house...lots of people get their houses shot at. Whatd they do, write little messages on the bullets "Hey meany, leave gta alone!!!". Same with all the other stuff...unless the harassment came with notification that it was caused by his actions against rockstar video games, its bullsh*t. He's gone against so much stuff in the past OTHER than just video games, pissed off so many people, theres no way to tell who did everything.

That's a good point. wink.gif

 

I think the fact that JT hasn't been killed (yet) is proof against the argument that GTA makes people go crazy.

I just got done reading all 37 pages and my IQ has dropped because of it

 

4. "Thompson never, as Take-Two has incorrectly alleged, proceeded against

Take-Two’s Bully nor threatened to similarly come against Grand Theft Auto IV and

Manhunt 2 in an attempt to prevent either game’s commercial release."

 

On his own website

 

Dear Mr. Gates:

 

You have fifty-four (54) days in which to stop the release of Bully on XBox.

 

Govern yourself accordingly.

Sincerely, Jack Thompson

Someone please assemble a list of the things that Jack has attempted to sue in relation to Grand Theft Auto or Rockstar.

 

Actually, for a shorter post, someone please assemble a list of what he hasn't tried to sue.

Someone gather a list of stuff Thompson likes so I can take it away from him. Although I have a sneaking suspicion that this guy doesn't derive pleasure from ANYTHING in life, including his wife.

If people honestly shoot at his home it can only hurt the game industries because they will point the blame at games.

I'm partial to bombarding his home with kiddie games. Claim the Barbie Princess Adventure series made me run someone over with a magical horse.

Look its from Wikipedia...dont go "O No its wikipedia, its not reliable!" because im sure it is in this case

[/b]

Here goes

 

In February 2003, Thompson asked permission to file an amicus curiae (or “friend of the court”) brief in the Ohio case of Dustin Lynch, 16, who was charged with aggravated murder in the slaying of JoLynn Mishne; Lynch was "obsessed" with Grand Theft Auto III.

 

Thompson returned to file a lawsuit in Tennessee state court in October 2003 on behalf of the victims of two teenage stepbrothers who had pled guilty to reckless homicide, endangerment, and assault. Since the boys told investigators they were inspired by Grand Theft Auto III.

 

Thompson was involved in another similar suit in Alabama in 2005 on behalf of the families of police personnel killed by Devin Moore, a teenager who was reportedly a compulsive Grand Theft Auto player

 

In the aftermath of this lawsuit, Thompson lobbied Alabama attorney general Troy King to file a civil suit and call on retailers not to sell “cop-killing games.”[6] After the slaying of another police officer in Gassville, Arkansas by Jacob D. Robida, an 18-year-old fugitive, Thompson again raised the possibility of a connection to Grand Theft Auto, but investigators found no evidence that video games were involved.[55]

 

Thompson once reported that he had videotaped a Miami Best Buy selling a copy of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to a 10-year-old. In a letter to Best Buy, he wrote, “Prosecutions and public relations consequences should fall on your Minneapolis headquarters like snowflakes.” He eventually sued the company in Florida, arguing that it had violated a law against sale of sexual materials deemed harmful to minors.

 

In September 2006, Thompson filed a suit in Albuquerque, New Mexico against Sony, Take-Two, Rockstar Games, and Cody Posey, for the wrongful death of three members of Posey's family. The 69-page complaint filed by Thompson and Albuquerque attorney Steven Sanders argued that "obsessively" playing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City made violence "pleasurable and attractive," disconnected violence from consequences, and caused Posey to "act out, copycat, replicate and emulate the violence" when he shot and killed his father, stepmother, and stepsister, and then buried them under a manure pile at a ranch owned by former ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson in July, 2004.

 

On 2007-03-14 Take-Two filed a lawsuit to prevent Thompson from preventing the sale of Grand Theft Auto IV and Manhunt 2 to minors, claiming that Thompson's effort to block sales of its games through lawsuits violates the company's first amendment rights. Responding, Thompson said, "I have been praying, literally, that Take-Two and its lawyers would do something so stupid, so arrogant, so dumb, even dumber than what they have to date done, that such a misstep would enable me to destroy Take-Two.

 

I leave you with one final comment:
