Jack Thompson was visited by a pair of US Marshals after he wrote a letter to Florida Bar member Judge Moreno, claiming Moreno was giving him fewer rights than a prisoner at Guantanamo bay.
According to Games Politics, Thompson wrote the letter on Friday expressing his frustrations that he can not obtain judicial relief in his battle against the Florida Bar.
“We find yesterday that enemy combatants at Guantanamo are to get more due process from federal judges than what I am to have,” he wrote.
“I guess my ‘mistake’ was not killing 3000 people to make my point.”
Judge Moreno apparently took offence to this and sent two Marshals to have a chat with the attorney. Telling a judge you made a mistake in not killing 3000 people is like joking that you’re carrying a bomb through airport security – huge no-no in post 9/11 America.
In response to the visit, Thompson claimed the Justice Department are harassing him. He has written to the council for the House Judiciary Committee requesting a meeting in Washington to air his complaint.
And the insanity continues…
