Take-Two protest planned
The convoluted story of Jack Thompson has taken another turn, this time with his news that a protest is planned for Take-Two's Manhattan headquarters on Friday. The publisher of Rockstar's Bully is being chastized by (quoting Thompson) "a group of children protesting Take-Two's targeting of kids with their adult entertainment." The circumstances of this protest are extremely dubious; aside from the fact that most children won't voluntarily protest anything, let alone games, it just so happens that Thompson CC'd his e-mail to Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau, whose office is running a grand jury investigation into Take-Two. Clearly, Thompson is attempting to sway Morgenthau's opinion of the company.
