Game-hating attorney Jack Thompson appears on Fox News to advocate the absolute banning on Manhunt 2 in the U.S. Did they not cover the 1st Amendment when he went to law school?
I'm for completely ignoring this fool. Responding to his self-inflicted rage and butthurt only empowers him. When we quit caring about him he stops mattering.
Everytime somebody is trying to argue against them, he quickly interrupts them.
wtf this guy is so anal. He doesn't even allow the opposing guy to talk. Hell even Nasim looks like an Angel in comparison this piece of garbage.
Fox new "Fair & Balanced" sucks just as usual
Fox "News" makes the King of propaganda himself "Josef Goebels" jelous.
I cannot believe that this @#$&^!@# STILL gets on TV. This just goes to show that the media is either IGNORANT on videogames or that they just do it for ratings. My money is on ratings. How can a reputable news station NOT do research on the nuttchugger and see that he is not an "expert" on anything except blowing smoke up peoples rear-ends.
This is the kinda crap that makes me sick that I am living in an America who's core values built on freedom and choice are going down the drain under the veil of "PROTECT THE CHILDREN."
We as gamers need to let our voices be heard by our congressmen....write them, tell them to leave videogames choice to rational adults. Tell them to spend their time on REAL issues such as child abuse, homelessness, healthcare, rising gas prices, and so on.
Pathetic the state this country is in.
Thanks Neo-Conservatives and Fundy Christians...thanks alot.
the integrity of fox news is so... predictable.
video games spread very very very small violence . but his religon god and all have spread moreb violence then anything it make videogame seem like a pimple on a flee . religion killed ppl and justified it and spreads hatred all over the world and much meany outher things about it. but he never say anything about it . he is a little monkey
Lets leave religion out of this. Jack Thompson is just plain nuts. Me being of the Christian faith I see nothing wrong with violent video games. As long as you are not strangling someone in real life then you are okay.
Also the only reason why there are so many deaths do to religious matters is because people took many things out of context and interpreted things to fit their wicked agendas. Jack Thompson being a perfect example of this. He's twisting what our moral beliefs say about violent acts.
I'm with Daxx.
All work and no play makes Jack Thompson a dull boy.
rules. unless your a liberal. if that is so i just want to know, do all of you have "insert head in here" tattooed on your ass
has nothing better to do in his life.'
He needs to get a boyfriend.
he needs to give it a rest
no matter how hard jack thompson or anyone else in his camp try to deny it, it falls on the shoulders of the parents. I've been playing video games since I was 6 years old from the atari 2600 to the xbox 360 I've owned or played every console including handhelds in the US and yes that includes the atari jaguar LOL. I turned out a law abiding citizen and I teach the same values and morales that my parents taught me. Video games is the only expressive medium that jake wants to attack by banning games.
The government enforced laws on smoking.
The government enforced laws on underage driking.
They can do the same thing for videogames; start penalizing companies who sell games to underage kids, they have not done that. Why? Because 10 minutes later that kids parent would walk in buy it and give it to the kid. My father is a retired police man and while on the force he and I had no problem gaming together. Streets of rage, sword of vermillion, phantasy star, final fantasy 7, golden axe, legend of zelda, mario 64. those where the games we played together, but he let me play wolfenstein, doom, etc,. on the pc why cuz I had been taught the difference between fantasy and reality. I'm responsible for my kids. my son knows 50 cent bullet proof G-unit edition on the psp is fake. cuz I taught him common sense, values, and morales. A few human traits that Jake needs to be re-educated on.
All of these people who spout this nonsense about violence in video games
make me sick. There is more violence on TV in 1 week than there is in most video games but they're not trying to ban violent programming. Don't censor the games. Stop people from selling the game to people under the age and most of all force the parents to do some parenting and monitor what their kids play!!!Don't ban the games though, that's an assault on the 1st amendment.
Give me a break. It's the parents that drive their kids to the stores to get the games and it's the parents who give their kids their credit cards to buy the game on line. Parents are involved and should ask one question "What are you buying?".If your not driving your kid to the store and your not giving your kid your credit card to buy on line you may have bigger issues. This guy is a dope and needs his license to practice law in Florida suspended. We can all pray for that day...
and in other breaking news, the sky is blue, dogs chase cats, and the sun will rise in the east. I mean really, did anybody not see this coming?
I love how FOX News picked a hyperactive idiot to debate with Jack, while they show Jack remaining calm and collected. Great job FOX News, great job in presenting the debate totally unbiased. </sarcasm>
There's a surprise. I never saw that coming. Hopefully he will get disbarred before GTA 4 comes out, cos the bandwagon will start rolling all over again.
PS. It hasn't been banned in the UK, it is still in the process of getting certified, which can involve a bit of toing and froing, and to be honest it is a bit insincere to allow a movie like Hostel or Saw 3 to be rated but not manhunt, which in the end is cartoon violence.
