NEW YORK (Reuters) -- A lawyer was arrested late Monday and charged with trespassing at a public mall in the state of New York after refusing to take off a T-shirt advocating peace that he had just purchased at the mall.

According to the criminal complaint filed Monday, Stephen Downs was wearing a T-shirt bearing the words "Give Peace A Chance" that he had just purchased from a vendor inside the Crossgates Mall in Guilderland, New York, near Albany.

"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.

When Downs refused the security officers' orders, police from the town of Guilderland were called and he was arrested and taken away in handcuffs, charged with trespassing "in that he knowingly enter[ed] or remain[ed] unlawfully upon premises," the complaint read.

Downs said police tried to convince him he was wrong in his actions by refusing to remove the T-shirt because the mall "was like a private house and that I was acting poorly.

Calls to the Guilderland police and district attorney, Anthony Cardona and to officials at the mall were not returned for comment. Downs is due back in court for a hearing on March 17 and he could face up to a year in prison if convicted.


There's more to it than this. These guys were raising hell , making threats, or were drunk.

The mall is toasted. The lawsuit will cost them arm leg and testicle, not that they have much of the last one though. LOL :D

Is this the US version of our good friends the Saudi's "Committee to Prevent Vice and Promote Virtue"?
(You know, the dreaded Saudi "morality police")

Condoleezza Rice made sure she said understanding things
about the mass peace protests held around the world
and the people who participated in them.

There's always more to these stories than what was reported.

Anybody who's been the subject of a news story knows that.

I think that it is most entertaining that the "offensive" T-shirt was actually bought at the mall from where he was supposedly "trespassing".

May the infantile mall-owners have the "pleasure" of people laughing at them.

Those who run malls that sell T-shirts and then prevent people from wearing them in the same mall are total losers who shall burn in the fires of Hell.

no mall that i know of will allow any sort of politicks.nada,zip the last thing a mall want is a riot.That is why in America you will never see a person,poster or picture of any one in office at a mall. This isnot the first time this has come up.Heck I cant think of any special group that woulnt give there right arm to be able to post ,display,or make there actions known at a mall.And just think no matter who they are there is always someone who thinks the other side.

I can understand the owners of a mall not wanting to display any form of political message on posters or whatever, but people walking around wearing T-shirts with a political message on them just isn't the same thing. They can always point out that it's private property etc., and tell anyone whose T-shirt they disapprove of to leave, but by doing this they just make themselves look very silly.

March 6, 2003 ??????

Oh yeah, I remember. It turned out these to T-shirt wearers were actively approaching people to start disruptive arguments in the mall. As I recall, though I'm not going to search for a 10-month old link.
