Jack Thompson and Bully

Jack Thompson is back on the video game scene and has followed through with his threat to file a law suit against Rockstar, Take-Two and Walmart for Rockstar's upcoming "Bully" title. bit-tech was sent a copy by the man himself which started as follows "Take-Two has until five o'clock p.m., Eastern time, Monday, August 14, 2006, to inform me in writing that it will forthwith provide me with a copy of Bully so that I and others can analyze it to determine whether it still poses a threat of copycat violence in our schools.""

OK, so from reading a bit about Jack Thompson I think the guy is a nut job but reading more about this suit he is demanding a copy of this game to determine if it is violent and is also naming Wal-Mart in this? WTF? What does Wal-Mart have to do with Rockstar releasing a game? What court would even bother to hear this silly lawsuit and its claims that it will train kids to be a bully? I thought censorship started with the parents. Does this guy do public speaking events?
