Crap Arrest Of The Week

Posted to Poetry and Politics

For Wearing a T-shirt!

A shopper at Crossgates Mall in New York was confronted by
security guards demanding he remove his T-shirt as the
slogan was 'unacceptable'. He declined, so they returned
with a cop who arrested him. Later in the week, 100 people
marched through the store protesting his arrest all wearing
the same T-shirt. And what was the illegal slogan? 'Peace on
Earth' on the front of the shirt and 'Give Peace a Chance'
on the back.
