Listen to Jack Thompson go on and on about a possible link to violent video games just hours after the VT shooting.
Jack Thompson makes my evil tween look like einstein
and strangle the living [email protected] I'd love to drive up to Washington and tell GW that he's a moron...but I won't.
I'd love to track down a super model and scr3w her...but I won't.
It's called being rooted in reality and having self-control.
I bet all those shooters also drank milk. Mm, guess I'll stay away from that too.
Using Doom to train for a real shooting. LOL. Does this fckface even know what Doom looks like?
So i take that the shooter never looked up and stayed in hallways. Plus used a plasma rifle and chainsaw. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Jack Thompson is a waste of perfectly good oxygen.
yea hese an idiot but you cant totaly hate him i mean its not like he has bad intentions i know he wil never ever sucseed in bannin violince in gam simply because there are no experimants proving that it has any effect on childeren people how do this were already fvcked up
I disagree with you, I DO think he has bad intentions. I believe Jack Thompson uses tragedies to fodder his anti-video game campaign. Not because he actually cares, but just so he can make himself more publicly known and make more money from it. I don't think this guy has a heart, nor do I believe he even cares about what he says. He is a radical idiot out to make money off of other people's misfortunes. Face it, the guy loves it when things like this happen. It gives him another chance to plaster his face all over the news and make more money.
Is Jack Thompson going to make it illegal to reject anyone who asks you out? I believe that's what happened to this guy, isn't it? He asked some girl out and she rejected him. So he went crazy. Is that your next crusade Jacky?
Cant we boycott this guy? "We are collecting signatures and if possible donation to help our friend Jack Thompson to enter in the best Mental Facility in the United States, the "thing" needs help ASAP"
they'd conclude that i was training to kill people via counter strike, and that i like to role play as a girl on guild wars... hmmm (only one of my characters is a girl fyi)
and they check my ps3: i train to kill aliens via resistance..
this guy is garbage. i wrote a 6 page paper about how he was right last year, and let me tell you, all the stuff i came upon was mostly speculation on his part..
I mean what happened is no laughing matter, but Jack Thompson the man is using this as an excuse to talk about banning video games, it's funny ain't it they just had to interview this prick in association with this incident, typical, i say Rockstar should sue Jack Thompson for being a uncarring prick who really only wants to make a name for himself; and really couldn't give a fuk about violence in video games, he just sees it as a controversial target to try; and exploit!
it was funny the first 5 times. But now, the 15th tims or so, it really annoying having this phyco on the loos. But of course if you're new to the Jack Thompson thing it can be quite funny
guys know why he's doing it? Maybe his dad used his joystick on jacko and ever since then even mention of word joystick brings back those memories amd jacko becomes a wacko.
the truth is that crime has been it's lowest in adolescents since the 1960s. Our generation is more docile and apathetic, if you consider that good or not.
what about the news media? talking over and over and over again about this tragic incident. does that count? news media can get in some people that are not in the right state of mind. if he is going to blame something or someone , he shouldn't blame only video games. if some sick person makes a decision to do something as horrible as that, is not because a video game , is because he lost his mind. he should be talking about how to bring peace in peoples mind instead of playing the blaming game.
How did I know that somebody was going blame video games as a motive to the VT shooting yesterday? Let me tell you guys about a little history you are aware about. Religion itself has cause more violence then anything known today. Look at the crusader wars that is still not over it's continuing with the wars today that got other nations involved like our nation. Tell me how much people died because of video games? I know it's not millions like the past and now. Maybe this little 8 years old girl will inform you. Watch this youtube.com clip.
i was watching cnn and one of the points they brought out about the shooter was that he played video games. Being the loner he was, I'm not surprised, but at the same time, so many people play games now that it's just like saying he watches movies or reads books. All three forms of media can be graphic and violent, and it's just the news trying to ride the game train. Watch for violent video game specials in the coming weeks, I bet.
What is sick about this man,(as some pointed out before) is that he is pushing a “true” (notice the Quotes) agenda. He has no proof, he takes study's, which say video games have an effect, but as much as anything else, and says it’s a main factor. But there have been study’s to deter
what he has said. LOOK AT THE JUVENILE CRIME RATE ITS THE LOWEST IN YEARS!
He complains about the ills of pop culture, which is understandable, yet he does not place any blame on the parent, and they are the issue. Rockstar or any game developer should not be sued for their games. This is America, like it or not they have a right to put out their material. Now there should be limitations on who can buy games but there already is in some instances, and there are ratings on the box.
The problem is there is too many stupid idiots out that really make me wonder why they are parents t begin with they buy these games without checking the rating, and/or or don't know what their kids are playing.
Why would you blame a company for this?
I remember someone saying something like this.
If I went into a store and bought Jack Daniels for my son, and said here drink this, then sue the company for having alcohol in it and it says so on the bottle.
Thats basically how stupid some people are today.
As for religion yes it has cause a lot of problems. Take Christianity for example, i happen to be a Christian, but I'm not crazy like some a-hole like Pat Robinson. Though he didnt kill anyone, he really needs to stop hating gay people. Just so you know not all Christians are like that. At least thats not what were supposed to be like.
Now historically Christianity(mainly the catholic church) has caused a lot of problems.
The same goes for Islam. Ive heard some people say all Islam is evil, when in actuality not all of it isn't(oh yeah and they try to convert them best they can). Though i disagree with their views, i can at least respect someone maybe being their friend, and not shoving scripture down their throat. Don't get me wrong i would like to see others become Christian, but not in the way many try to do it.
Its the radical Islamic people that make Islam look bad. And historically, Islam, judism and Christianity caused a lot of issues. And all those issues have been cause d by radicals.
The main reason for this i because it has been used in the wrong way.
And sadly, thats just the way it is.
Sorry got off topic at the end
I just had to speak my mind, because this conservative media Fox News and Jack Thompson is giving out disinformation, which gets me angry. Sorry if my comments offended you.
School shootings doesnt happen in the u.k and we all play video games
maybe jack its the access kids have to guns in the U.S thats the problem
he bought the pistol, and a 22(i believe) legally.
religion(including christians) have a ton of issues.
All i was saying is in the way Christianity is supposed to work, isn't being utilized in may Christians life today. I.E. disgust for homosexual community, instead of reaching out to them. I disagree with their lifestyle, but i would never treat them any differently than anyone else, or try to change them. I would befriend them if possible and not try to force anything upon them.
Historically people being forced to change, hasn't had the best result.
And actually usually fox doesn't bother me much, neither does CNN or NBC either. But the jack Thompson thing was uncalled for.
but i do have to say one thingLegionaire2005, that girl, in many ways, was right. Its kind of sad in some ways.
...DO YOU BECOME A EXPERT IN SCHOOL SHOOTINGS???????!?!@?!!@
was there a class i missed in high school? new course in college maybe?? you got to be kidding me.
ok, just had to get that off my chest. its funny how they throw the word expert on everything. i guess i'm a ramen noodle cooking expert.
this guy is a joke, anyone who thinks video games cause poeople to kill are idiots. i chainsaw and shotgun people in gears, not once have i thought to go chainsaw someone.
this guy said he trained on the game doom. HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHA. GET THE HLL OUT OF HERE. We need to protest this guy to get him fired. he is a waste of a good lawyer
Sad to here what happened but games are age rated just like movies and music
