Latest Tactic Equates Bully with Porn

Having failed to convince a Florida judge that Bully is a public nuisance, controversial attorney Jack Thompson has a new tactic in what seems to be a never-ending crusade against the game.

Thompsons latest approach is that the games boy-kissing scenes are essentially porn, thus making Bully illegal to sell to minors. Although Thompson does not use the P-word, the statute he cites would generally relate to such material.

In a letter sent yesterday to several major retailers, Thompson writes:

It turns out that the school violence simulation game Bully also contains homosexual activity between the games hero, Jimmy Hopkins, and other male students.


Oh, this is just fucking rediculous.

1. Thompson gives shyster lawyers a bad name.
It's a wonder he hasn't been disbarred.

He used to follow Janet Reno around in Florida, before she became AG, wanting her to sign an affadavit saying if she was a lesbian or not.
Reno told him to go to hell.

Thompson's other "cause" is the "Left Behind" video game, Thompson says it's "too violent." :crazy:
