Boiling Mad

Take a look at this bandana. Notice that it has both smiley faces and flowers. And though it's hard to see in this picture, it also has peace signs on it. How does this make you feel? Does it disturb you? Make you want to confront a person if they were wearing it?

At Battlefield Mall in Springfield, Missouri, this bandana violated the code of conduct. A security guard approached the person wearing it and informed the person that it constituted "apparel which is likely to provide a disturbance or embroil other groups or the general public in open conflict." The person who had the gall to wear such an obscene article of clothing? A 10-year old girl who was shopping with her mom. Nice to know the rent-a-cops at this mall are looking out for us.
