A piece of legislation has reached the highest legislature in Rhode Island, and it’s causing a bit of a stir. It makes it illegal to sell Mature rated games to minors, punishable by jailtime or fines. Now, by itself, this is not a story. However, one of the dissenting voices is notorious disbarred lawyer and former Batman Jack Thompson. Famous for his campaigns against violent and “obscene” video games, as well as his exploits as Batman while fighting the evil villain “Rap Music”, Thompson has stated that this legislation would not stand up to a legal appeal, nor should it. However, it’s not all smiles and sunshine. While it may appear that he’s turned over a new leaf, rest assured that Jackie Boy is still completely insane. Apparently, his problem is that the ratings for the games are done by the private sector, and that if a government review board were set up to rate these games, that THAT would be perfectly acceptable. At least he can still tell the difference between “legal” and “not legal”. Now if only he could learn the difference between “protecting American children” and “making an ass of yourself until you get disbarred”.
