Jack Thompson Tossed Out Of Court

Quote:
"Controversial Miami-based attorney Jack Thompson has been removed from a lawsuit filed by the families of two slain police officers and a police dispatcher against Sony, Rockstar Games, and game retailers. Furthermore, the judge in the case revoked Thompson's license to practice law in the state of Alabama citing Thompson's behavior as the cause of the sanction."

Great news. Maybe this will push the debate over games and violence into a more intelligent and honest realm.

Not one to take such things lying down, Thompson fired back at Judge Moore by claiming the the judge "has violated... The Alabama Canons of Judicial Ethics by his unfortunate, improper, and prejudicial acts in this case, at the expense of three bereaved Alabama families."

Man, this guy really needs to learn to recognize his mistakes. This is really getting pretty pathetic.

If you thought lawyers were the bottom of the barel, you obviously haven't dug deep enough to find Jack Thompson.

What's scary is that I could see him retaliate someday, in a violent way...when you mess with people's livelihood they can freak out. Hopefully this doesnt turn into a Law and Order fiasco.

The problem is, that this guy is NOT going to go away. He probably has some deep-pocketed supporters (probably conservative religious nutjobs) that will continue to fund this guy cuz they know he is insanely motivated to go after the gaming community. I really don't see this as much different than those nutjobs that get elected onto the schoolboard in some town in Alabama (or Tennessee?) that are now trying to discredit Evolution and insert their own religiously motivated 'Intelligent Design' ideas. These zeolots are really gaining ground in some areas by simply not going away.

I really would NOT be showed to see Jack run for some kind of political office.

Those are some pretty strong comments my friend. I'm one of those "conservative religious nutjobs" and I don't agree with how Thompson has conducted himself, nor do I agree with a lot of what he says. Did it ever occur to you that there might be some of those in favor of intelligent design on these forums? This doesn't seem like the right place to be trashing on them or even discussing it at all.

- Your Friendly Zeolot

You've got a point. The people like him don't give up. While the other side, eventually, will just say, bah, I'm tired of this, lets just go play video games instead

I work at a WAFF 48 NEWS which is very near where the two police officers were killed. I was at work the day that they were killed. I remember cutting in for breaking news. It was a very sad day indeed.
