but seriously, in response to everyone who says:
"but he was so funny! who are we gonna luagh at now!?"
"damn, that seems really harsh."
listen to this, the job of a lawyer is to defend peoples rights and the law, you have a strong responibility to uphold the law and defend peoples rights, and you have a responibility not to abuse your power.
jack thompson did not defend any laws, he tried to make his own, he did not defend anyones rights, he just tried to take them away.
and most of all, he abused his power and used it as a soapbox for his viewpoint.
when you mess up as bad as he did, you have to face the cosicinous, and he did.
thats the way the laws work, you try to play by your own rules, your gonna be thrown out of the game.
