Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

September 30, 2008 -

Posted at the risk of incurring the further wrath   of Doug Lowenstein:

Disbarred attorney Jack Thompson thinks the feds are tapping his phone. Or maybe his computer.

In a letter sent earlier today to U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Thompson grumbles about once again being detained while trying to access the federal courthouse in Miami:

When I went to the Ferguson Federal Courthouse today, the Deputy Marshals were waiting for me because they clearly knew I was coming.  The black binder that contains alleged “threats” was opened to my page, featuring two pictures of me, and with the explanation, read to me by the Deputy, that I am to be escorted because I am about to be disbarred, because I have filed lawsuits that have been dismissed, and because I allegedly wrote inappropriate letters to judges...

 

The fact that this multi-page binder was already opened up to my page as I walked through the front door suggests surveillance by some means by the US Marshal.  There have been other bits of evidence suggesting this surveillance, but this is the clincher.  The most likely means of doing so are my cell phone use by satellite monitoring, land line phone taps, and/or taps on my home computer. 

 

When the Deputies illegally visited my home [in June, see: U.S. Marshals Pay Jack Thompson a "Visit"] they stated that I was in fact being “monitored...”

Ultimately, Thompson was escorted to his destination. This was not the first time he has been barred from entering. (see: Stopped at Courthouse Door, Thompson Says He Will Sue U.S. Marshal). He currently has multiple open lawsuits against entities including the Florida Bar and Florida Supreme Court.

UPDATE: Full text of JT's letter here...

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

Paranoid, quite obviously. Mabey he thinks Sony are planning to have him asassinated, or Bill Gates is coming to get him?

On the other hand, this could be a pathetic plea for attention - he's just a sad,obsessed, old man who doesn't like being out of the media spotlight.

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

They're coming to take him away, ha ha! They're coming to take him away, hee hee, ho ho, ha ha, to the funny farm! Where life's hysterical all the time, and he'll be sorry he did those things to us good people and our games and they're coming to take him away, ha ha!

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

I just love how he demands action from the Attorney General, and only gives him a few days to do it. Not a request, just "This is what you will do..." Like the AG would even read his letter before the deadline, and that's assuming anyone there will bother to read it aside from an intern maybe.

And I'm pretty sure he filed his FOIA request via a letter to the AG, instead of using the proper channels and method.

PS - Thanks for fixing my password, Dennis.

Saying that Jack Thompson is impotent is an insult to impotent men everywhere. They've got a whole assortment of drugs that can cure their condition; Jack, however...

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

im sure the attorney general will read his request (everyone loves a good laugh)

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

I'm sure he will, but it won't be one of his pressing matters, unless he's having a really bad day; if the Supremes outlaw waterboarding, for instance.

Wow...i mean...damn i know jack is mental and all but just...god this keeps getting funnier and funnier each time..maybe now that he will be disbarred he can take some time to get in some gta 4??

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

He's nuttier than squirrel shit.  When uttered by Jack Thompson, those conspiracy theries of "They're out to get me."  Sounds so unbelievably crazy.  But then again, Jack probably wakes up asking himself "What did I do to make them not like me?"

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

Heh, figures. He practically threatens to blow up a courthouse(adding figuratively doesn't make it better) and he expects them to kiss his ass

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

um, does Thompson not know that all disbarred people have to be escorted in courthouses so they don't shoot up the place?  it's kind of this rule they have...

Nah, he'd just take pictures and add them to his Civil Rights lawsuit.  You know how he loves to post "gay sex" pictures in his not-so-legal filings.

Wow now he reminds of Truth, the crazy hippie guy from San Andreas. It's only a matter of time before he finds himself in jail for harassment or tresspassing or something. Keep it up Jack, you really make yourself look like a nobile crusader when you find yourself going to jail soon.

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

JT is dying for some sympathy. Well, it's not coming from me.

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

Feds? oh come on, Mr. Thompson, YOu're so disbarred, the Feds don't want to even touch you or hear your name anymore!

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

I would like to add that looking at the full letter site, and reading the comments, I have now been creeped out by the appearance of the name Andrew Stirling.  Not by what he said, but by the name.

Looking at one of my blogs, you see my first name is Andrew.  That's not the strange part, of course.  Plenty of Andrews.

But, for decades attempting to write science fiction stories, and being too lazy to get far, the main character of many of my stories has been David STIRLING.

Ok, so it's a stupid thing to get creeped out over.  Not really a big deal.  But it's been a strange week thus far and it's only just getting started.  :O

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

I was thinking an Alfred E. Newman style caricture of Thompson myself. but the rest of it I wholeheartedly agree. Alas, I cannot even draw a straight line without a laser level.

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

Wow Jack, clearly you watch to many movies and TV. Instead of thinking that security was stationed there all week to watch for you cause the courts would know you would come. You come up with the movie plot of tracking you by cell phone and watching you on satellite. Clearly you must stop watching TV cause its rotting your brain maybe you should pick up a hobbie like playing video games to keep your brain sharp.

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

This is exactly the type of stuff that Doug Lowestein was talking about....   So Jack Thompson is a rambling idiot...  Who here didn't know???   This is related to games or news how?  Maybe I missed the plot...   Or is this just for the sake of generating traffic????

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

"generating traffic"

Gee, did you think maybe there are people who visit this site who WANT to read stories about Thompson? If you don't want to, you're welcome to skip them. But oh no, some random guy doesn't like something so we should ban it. Sound like anyone we know?

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

This is Dennis' site...   If he wants tomorrow's story to read "Jack Thompson farts on isle 4 at the local Cotsco", he's more than entitled to do it.  But when he gets on a soap box expressing how offended he is about Doug Lowenstein saying that "gaming sites enabled Jack Thompson", I am just as entitled to point out the hipocrisy of right afterwards posting this "story".  This IS solely for generating traffic, as this is not about games, not about politics and sure as hell not "news-worthy". 

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

The are people who read this site want to read these articles. The end. The fact it's even up to debate is baffling. "How dare his CATER to his AUDIENCE!" A smart webmaster would be actively trying to piss off the entirety of his readership, I suppose.

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

ROFL...   The End????

 

Anyways, you, like many others, miss the point.  If Dennis wants to turn this site into the Jack Thompson daily tracker...  More power to him. 

But when he on a high horse saying "How dare Doug Lowestein suggest that I posted Jack Thompson stories to generate traffic????" then posting this crap right after, that's the definition of hipocrisy.  The FBI did his part of forget about Jack Thompson, the Florida bar did their part to forget about Jack Thompson, hell..   even the state of Alabama did their part to forget about Jack Thompson.  The only ones that are not doing so are gaming sites like this one.

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring Me

Lowestein is an idiot and the reason why no one wants to join the ESA and everyone is leaving. Instead of trying to rebut anti video game activists we leave them to talk.

Instead of sitting on there hands well various anti gaming organzations gain ground they sit and do nothing, they are useless

Thompson: Feds are Monitoring My Old Irrelevant Ass.

Yes, Doug and the ESA are useless, but what purpose does this serve? The fucker's done. DONE. Honestly, the only JT news I'm interested in is his application to MacDonalds.

 

-Remember kids, personal responsibility is for losers! Jack Thompson is gone, but we are not done... Not yet.

Reality/////////////////////////////////////Fantasy. Seems like a pretty thick line to me...

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring My Old Irrelevant Ass.

Technically speaking, it's not done until Jack loses his final appeal. Articles like this are for tracking the last little bit until the very end.

-Gray17

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring My Old Irrelevant Ass.

Precisely my point!  Jack Thompson is done! He was always an attention seeker, and sites are still giving him the attention he craves with this crap.  The sooner he fades into oblivion, the better.  But by posting these "news" they still provide the stage for him.

Re: Thompson: Feds are Monitoring My Old Irrelevant Ass.

I think the game relation is the fact that JT is now so crazy, that his life now IS a video game.  Seriously, he things people are after him...   If I had the time, I would make the video game:

------------------------
Tracked: The Imagined World of Jack Thompson

In this game you have one of 2 modes to play, tracking Jack or being Jack trying to keep from being tracked. 
--If you are tracking Jack, you have to get into his house and plant bugs, and figure out his every move.  If you are able to mess with him enough to knock his crazy meter to 100%, you WIN!!! 
--While if you are Jack, you have to find all of the bugs, prove Janet Reno is gay with a [] Yes   [] No letter, get all M rated game banned, and turn the US communist!

There are mini games involved playing as Jack where you post on game forums and threaten gamers as well.

Now who is intersted in this game?
