Jack Thompson: "Destroy each and every copy of '25 to Life'"

Apparently Jack Thompson can walk and chew gum at the same time. While we were thinking the anti-video game advocate was distracted by his current campaign against the Florida Bar Association, he managed to pop his head out long enough to send a letter to the California Attorney General suggesting California police officers, "seize and destroy each and every copy of 25 to Life," upon the game's release next week.

According to the letter written by Thompson, 25 to Life (Eidos' entry into the GTA genre) is a dangerous "public nuisance", therefore making it legal (California Civil Code Section 3495) for police officers (without warrants) to enter video game stores, pluck copies of the game from the shelves, and destroy them. Unfortunately for Thompson, what he defines as a "public nuisance" is not what our courts (nor rational people) define as a "public nuisance", making his letter, his proposal, and his promised campaign on public airwaves in California, nothing short of silly.
