When your a gamer with internet access, it's hard not to know who this wacko is. Living here in South Florida (where good old Jack is) his anti videogaming messages have even reached our local news stations.
When Bully was released my33 (a local news station) went to call Bully the "most violent video game ever created"
(Guess they missed the fact that the game has no blood or death in it?)
Jack Thompson came on for a couple seconds saying that it trains kids to become bullies in school and school violence will go up.
Funny thing is, there were bullies and violence in schools long before video games even existed.
I'm no law expert, but could it be the reason his nasty letter to the judge wasn't considered contempt because it was written on his own time (under free speech maybe?) and sent in? It'd be one thing if he said that before the judge in the court room (ie, contempt of court) but it was just a letter. I'm sure people write letters like that to Bush all the time.
I'd love to see this idiot lose his law license so he can do less damage to the video game industry (he's obviously on a personal crusade based off his pure hatred for video games) but honestly I don't see a whole lot coming from this. Did you read his smart ass comments in response to Take Two?
Ah well.. I'm not going to read too much into it because this guy's BS rhetoric just stresses me out.
