+ - Jack Thompson Attacks DoD, ESA, GTA with Utah Bill->

Submitted by eldavojohn
eldavojohn (898314) writes "Delusional disbarred Miami attorney Jack Thompson claims to have a bill in the state of Utah that targets entire industries and retailers with the Truth in Advertising Law. The best part of his rant: "Our military appropriately uses violent video games a) to suppress the inhibition to kill of new recruits, and b) to teach killing scenarios. Games have the same effect on civilian teens." While GamePolitics couldn't find the bill on Utah's state site, they did receive a response from him claiming "I have a sponsor and a bill, and [the video game] industry is in trouble." For 2009 bills, there seems to be merely a bill enhancing the Truth in Advertising Law but does not contain any of Thompson's verbiage. Good 'ole Jack, always good for some laughs but really he needs to give it up one of these days."
