GTA is basically the only video game I play (don't get into the other stuff - gimmie some ole fashioned sniping any day!). This guy's a douche.

I'm just sick of special interest and protest groups making public policy.

I wish Jack Thompson's introduction to this world would have been with a rusty coat hanger.

I think Rockstar didn't want Jack Thompson to use GTA4 for his personal political gain as a canidate.

Update: Judge throws the book at Jack

This is the guy that tried to kill GTA IV. His attempts to block distribution of the game got squashed and his tactics in doing so landed him in front of a judge.

Judge's report in Jack Thompson case: guilty on 27 charges :clap:

...
These are not small offenses, as Judge Tunis recommended a guilty verdict for, among other things, "knowingly making a false statement of material fact or law to a tribunal," "using means that have no purpose other than to embarrass, delay, or burden a third person (aka Rockstar)," "engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation," and "making statements that the lawyer knows to be false or with reckless disregard as to the truth or falsity concerning to the qualifications or integrity of a judge."
