Legend of Jack Thompson
Jack Thompson is an American activist and disbarred attorney, based in Coral Gables, Florida. Thompson is known for his role as an anti-video-game activist, particularly against violence and sex in video games. During his time as an attorney, Thompson focused his legal efforts against what he perceives as obscenity in modern culture. This included rap music, broadcasts by Howard Stern, the content of computer and video games and their alleged effects on children. It was very clear that Thompson believed children would copy everything they see in games. He has taken on such games as Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and it’s thought he even accused Mario, The Legend of Zelda and Metroid of driving kids to commit crime.
