Have you got Jack Thompson fatigue?
Yeah, we have it too.
In the wake of yesterday’s server-crashing, mind-numbing revelation by GamePolitics that the anti-game attorney sent gay porn pics to a federal judge we could use a couple of Jack-less days.
Alas, it’s not to be. The activist, who sometimes refers to himself as the “Energizer Bunny” of the game violence debate, is at it again.
In a press release issued late yesterday, Thompson claims that his 15-year-old son has once again purchased an M-rated (17 and older) game at a South Florida retailer.
Readers may recall our September 13th story in which Thompson claimed that Junior purchased BioShock at a local Best Buy. This time around Thompson says it was Halo 3:
Miami attorney and anti-violent video game activist today did a successful sting on Target Corporation. His fifteen-year-old son, on the first try, was able to buy the “Mature-rated” Halo 3 without producing any age ID at the Dadeland Station Target.
GP: Hey, the kid is accumulating quite a game collection in the name of research. Hope he’s finding time to get his homework done.
