The guy who believes that games cause violence and starts many court cases against them. He is actually just introducing a scapegoat that kids can blame when they kill someone
Jack Thompson is really freakin moronic

Get the Jack Thompson mug.
a activist who pointed out that "in every school shooting, we find the kids who pull the trigger are video gamers", despite the fact that the majority of male teenagers play cod and halo, and many of them don't grow up to murder someone.
Jack Thompson: that kid who shot the other kid at school played cod! That's proof that video games brainwash teenager's minds!
Random guy: the kid he shot played cod too.

Get the Jack Thompson mug.
a lawyer who defends kids in murder cases by claiming that video games brainwashed them into doing it. Where do I start with this one?

-His license to practice law in Alabama has been revoked.

-He had several accounts, all of which were banned.

-He claims that the original Doom trained the Columbine shooters, and that Halo trained the D.C. sniper attacks, both of which statements are outrageously ridiculous when you consider how realistic those games are (I'm referring to gameplay, not graphics).

-Every email reply he sends is always something like:
"piss off you little queerbag" or "your favorite industry has been exposed on 60 minutes you fagtard" (with that same punctuation and capitalization).

-He hasn't won a single court case with his position. Where the hell does he get his money from?
Jack Thompson is a COMMUNIST!

Lawyer and activist from Florida who is well known for his bizarre filings against the Florida Bar (at one point questioning the legality of its existence) and attempting to sue various rap artists and video game companies, claiming they were corrupting the youth.

He has lost every case he has ever filed and was finally disbarred in 2008.
Thompson's more outlandish antics include:
>Sending documents including photocopies of his drivers license with Batman's picture in place of his own (later wore a Batman watch in court to compliment this).
>"A company that says a line will not be drawn will be drawn and quartered" -Jack Thompson
>Thompson once told a prank caller to buy a suicide game and "get real good at it".
>Just the fact that commentators have called his courtroom behavior "cartoony" tells a lot.

Get the Jack Thompson mug.
a FORMER lawyer, and self proclaimed anti video games actvist who waged a one man war against violent video games, and the 1st Amendment. He was disbarred for his behaviour in the courtroom and generally being a pain in the ass to everyone. He never won a single video games related case. Ever.
Jack Thompson is an example of how not to prosecute a case.

Jack Thompson is not the biggest fan of the 1st Amendment

Jack Thompson believes violent video games are the cause of the worlds ills (despite the world being a more violent place prior to video games e.g. World War 1 & 2, Chinese Revolution, Korea, Pol Polts Cambodia ect ect

Some major dumbass who thinks playing games like Grand Theft Auto will turn kids into killers and car-jackers.
News Reporter: Just last night, angry kids ran out onto the street, hijacked some cars, and then went to Jack Thompson's house and killed him.

Children of the World: YAY!!!
