Grand Theft Auto: "Total Dickweed"
Posted: Tuesday October 12th, 2004 by

Sorry about the late comic, I slacked during the server upgrade.

I was tooling around Evil Avatar last night when I saw that Jack Thompson was up to no good again.

This time a kid in Massachusetts decided he was going to shoot up his school and the rescue worker that followed on the anniversary of the Columbine tragedy. And, Jack Thompson decided this was an ideal time to attack GTA, yet again, contending that the boy was using the game to plan his massacre. ~ GameIndustry.Biz [More Info]

Now, I'm not really a fan of Grand Theft Auto. I just don't think it's good for the industry. But, **shrugs** I don't think anyone is a killer just because they play it. Hell, I watched folks play it and got a kick out of aspects of the game myself. Again, there's nothing wrong with the game, or the people that play it, I just don't like the direction it took the industry.

All that aside though, this lawyer, Jack Thompson, has tried time and time again to get the US court system to rip the video game companies a new one by agreeing to say they're responsible for the tragedies Jack Thompson is accusing them of instigating. Thus far, they have wisely seen fit to dismiss his allegations.

I'm sure others out there might agree with this chucklenut, and that's your peragotive. Free will and freedom of choice guides your ability to disagree. Jack Thompson just needs to realize that free will guides other, less savory, actions as well.
