"I was in the food court with my son when I was confronted by two security guards and ordered to either take off the T-shirt or leave the mall," said Downs.
Yes, that's right. He was arrested -- and could face a year in prison if convicted -- for wearing a "Give peace a chance" t-shirt in the mall.
Don't forget that today is the National Moratorium to Stop the War. Better get yr protests in while you still can.

I wouldn't mind so much if they'd promise to also throw out anyone wearing a 'These Colors Don't Run' t-shirt. You suppose they did that?

Best part: the security guards claim that they received numerous complaints about the shirts from other shoppers.

So, why didn't the rentacops just shut down the store selling these eeeee-vil shirts? Then no one would be offended ever again.
