Actually, I'm not sure he is physically going there, but his continuing crusade to find a legal case which is actually winnable heads off to Tennessee, where he once again blames Grand Theft Auto for training a violent teenager:
This is how lousy Jack is at his job:
In a statement, the lawyer said: "As has happened in other instances, as in the triple homicide in Fayette, Alabama, by an 18-year-old obsessive player of the cop-killing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, a highly-charged emotional event can serve as a trigger for such a shooting."
What's interesting about those two sections of the article? Well, in the first one ... the connection between the kid and the video game was dismissed because it was the victim who was a fan of the game, not the killer (and the police never took the link seriously) ... and in the second one Thompson was forcibly removed from the case and then had his temporary Alabama legal license revoked ... largely because he would do things like call the family of the killer and suggest publically that it was factually sound that their child was brainwashed by a video game.
Any betting man knows how this one will go. Media will make frenzy out of nothing, eventually rational people will look at the evidence and realize how crazy it really is and then the whole thing will get laughed out of court.
In other words, Jack Thompson is becoming a professional failure.
