Friday video -- Jack Thompson's contempt hearing

While the quality of the video is pretty poor, it is fascinating to get a look at the psyche of Jack Thompson.

A quick history of what is going on in the video: Jack Thompson, a highly controversial lawyer who seems to believe video games are the source of all evil, lost his most recent attempt at crazy when a judge denied Thompson's motion to ban Take-Two's T-rated 'Bully'. This made Thompson angry and he circulated a letter comparing the judge to the UN and the game to Iran (just a sample, as there is so much more). This caused Take-Two's lawyers to ask that Thompson be held in contempt of court. Below, you have the hearing (fast forward through the first four minutes to get to it).

In case you can't follow it (or don't want to), Thompson acts like a know it all brat and continues to be disrespectful of the judge. The judge recuses himself from the case, and warns Thompson that the next judge may not be so forgiving.

While I've never been a fan of Jack Thompson, this video really shows that he's not right in the head. He is so certain he is right, that anyone who disagrees with him is evil and not worthy of respect. At what point will this man, who has lost every single case he's brought before a judge regarding video games, understand that he is wrong? And, at what point will the Florida Bar Association revoke this man's license to practice law? Seriously, it would be funny if it weren't so tragic.

Special thanks to Destructoid for thier coverage of this case.

I hope that worthless turd loses his license to practice law over that and he is a pig. He lies and then thinks that the world owes it to him to bow at his lying feet. He has his head up his poophole and I think it's so far up there that he will never be able to pull it out. He's crazy and he needs to go where crazy people go. That's right, the nuthouse and there they'll take care of his craziness by not allowing him to spill it on the rest of the world. No one should be subjected to the lies and the abuse of Jack Thompson. He needs to go and get in a mental hospital now for his sake and for everyone else's. He should be in the nuthouse, not in the Florida Bar Association. Oh what a horrible thought. A guy like that in any bar association is an awful thing to think about as reality.
