Jack Thompson Pressing Charges Against Penny Arcade
Posted by Nathaniel at 12:42 PM
I just can't get enough of the PA guys and their never-ending battle with the hilarious and possibly legally insane Jack Thompson. Here's a quote from a fax Jack sent to the Seattle Police (note: Game Politics has been Slashdotted, so might not load all too quickly for you):
"As you may know, this incredibly violent Rockstar Games product is actually a 'cop-killing' murder simulator. There are a bunch of computer geeks out there who think that the video game industry has a constitutional right to paint a bullseye on your back and on your officers' backs... That is what this criminal harassment of me by Penny Arcade is all about. They're even selling an 'I Hate Jack Thompson' t-shirt, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. These idiots have been so careless as to post on their www.pennyarcade.com web site what they are doing regarding the harassment of me."Extortion factory? Please, Jack. And you call yourself a lawyer.
"I look forward to working with your fine Police Department to shut this little extortion factory down and/or arrest some of its employees."
