How I feel about it all: infuriatedinfuriated

And here I thought this was a free country.

This guy has a lawsuit, for sure. Last time I looked, the First Amendment was still right there at the top of the Bill of Rights.

Isn't this the freedom we say we're sending our sons and daughters overseas to fight for? *headdesk* I mean, this guy could go to prison for exercising a constitutional right.

That is insane. I mean, I could understand it if the T-Shirt was obscene (ie nude pictures or swearing) But come one, "Give peace a chance"?

I'm just seeing so many of these lately that i'm getting sick of them. Not getting sick of posting them, just the fact that these things are happenening.

*hearts your icon* That's just about sums up my feeling towards the Puppet as well. War Monger that he is (You know that all this tension has been going on for at least 2 years??)

That is insane about the t-shirt. Totally mad. If the Attorney got in trouble for buying it, wouldn't the vendor also be in trouble too, for selling the merchandise??

so, they arrested a lawyer for wearing a t-shirt. I think they picked on the wrong guy.

And yeah, Freedom of Speech anyone? Geez. Maybe it's cos it's John Lennon's song and the FBI were never too keen on him. *smirk* I ::heart:: John.

I saw a similar article about the same guy this morning, and thought, well, that's just stupid. Unbelievable.

I'm actually surprised they threw him out; you'd think the bad press would be enough of a deterrent. I doubt it will go to court, but it'd be an interesting lawsuit, since they'd have to prosecute him for trespassing and there's the weird private space overlay on the free speech issue. Unlike the 'Fuck the Draft' guy who was arrested in court -- obviously a public space.

*puts T-shirt guy in free speech part of Nimbus presentation* Thanks for the link.

I wouldn't be those police officers, security guards, or anyone else connected with this insanity for all the gold in fort knox. That lawyer is going to crucify them.

And well he should.

Ridiculous!

*points at icon..* He's spinning like a lathe in his grave.

God, yes.

But it grieves me how sad all this would make him.
One damn minute, Admiral.

I like how you posted a link to the Bill of Rights. ;)

And the article is so insane that I wonder whether Reuters got something wrong or distorted the facts somehow. Does anyone know what the URL would be to another article covering the incident?

And here I thought this was a free country. Hehe. Silly you.

I like the bit about how it's okay to make a profit selling the thing, but not okay to express the sentiment by wearing it. It's so exquisitely in keeping with the Bush administration's philosophy.

Ugh. What bugs me is - why are they wasting their time on some guy wearing a t-shirt when they could be going after all the other offenders out there who are much worse?
