SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG - Cat Wheeler

Mar. 6th, 2003 07:30 am SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG

Ok, on the way home from owrk this morning I caught a story about a man in New York who had gotten arrested for wearing an anti-war t-shirt at a mall. This happened on Monday. Apparently, the mall felt that while he was shopping, he and his son were sausing a disturbance with thier shirts. The son took his off, but the man did not. As far as I can tell, there was no distubance at all.

Here is a link to one article about it. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2003/01/10/national/main536134.shtml

Now, I called my mom and spoke with her about it becuase I found this very disturbing. She had more news. She said that the charges had been dropped and that the man was thinking of suing. Now I do not blame him one bit for that, though I am sick and tired of the sue-happy mentallity most people seem to have these days.

I find it very disturbing that he was even arressted to begin with. I mean, what does that say about the state of the country? Are we that paranoid? Is Bush really that afraid that he is making the wrong decisin? You would almost think we were not living in America anymore. What happened to free speach?

Does anyone else find this at all disturbing or am I over-reacting?
