This is total bullshit. An 80 year-old wheelchair bound man is arrested for wearing an anti-war T-shirt. If he handed out anti-war pamphlets and the people did not want them, all they had to do was refuse, exactly the same measure of refusal if a recruiter for the US Armed Forces tries to hand out brochures and people do not want to take them. But to arrest this guy for refusing to turn his shirt inside out is about as un-American as what the critics will charge this octegenarian with. The Police State has arrived, freedom of speech is dead, the Constitution is shriveling up before our very eyes, but you know, we can watch sports and Britney Spears and reality shows and this election farce 24-7 and this episode won't make it into the MSM's headlines.
