Jack Thompson Still Hates GTA

Horse Beating ComicIn his most recent public outing, Jack Thompson decided to (again) target Rockstar Games' GTA series.   He goes into detail about how you can stomp on dead people until they bleed a pool of blood that gets left on the streets.

He also goes on as to say:

"I'm out to shut down Rockstar because they're run by a bunch of sociopaths and they're a one company crime wave."

This is all lame to me, as the video game clearly says on it (and I'm paraphrasing here):  "Rated M for Mature, contains hooker beating and cop killing.  Please be advised."  The only people playing the game are people that are old enough to buy it, or the kids of dumb parents.  Where is the problem?  By saying that Rockstar can't put out excessively violent games, Jack is implying that the ESRB is a complete failure and these games go flying off the shelves to little kids.  This goes fairly contrary to recent surveys.

I've seen non-legal minors buy liquor with less hassle then kids get at local game stores. True story.

In the end, Jack is just a hypocrite.  He's been beating a dead horse for quite some time now.  Punching dead animals ranks a lot higher up on the quackometer then shooting people, I'm almost positive.  People get shot all the time, but when was the last time you heard about someone going to jail for assaulting dead horses?

Let Mr. Ed rest in peace…
