Veteran's T-Shirt Results In Arrest

Retired Marine Greg Kachka Was Sent To Jail Over This Shirt:

news blog

The 60-year-old Vietnam veteran and former Marine was arrested at his home Tuesday and charged with two counts of disorderly conduct after two village trustees complained that, during a heated meeting, Kachka pointed his finger at them while wearing a shirt with a Marine Corps insignia that said, "Don't Move. If You Run, You'll Only Die Tired."

Trustees allege Kachka's thumb was raised and his index finger extended, as though he were firing a gun.

Witnesses claim he was threatening others by pointing at them or pretending to fire an invisible gun. Kachka says that just isn't true. He faces up to 30 days in jail, 2 years probation and a $30,000 fine.

This is absolutely crazy. How is wearing a Tee Shirt with anything on it disorderly conduct. Free speech is the issue here. What can pointing a finger do? Unless it goes into someones eye. Which it doesn't sound like that happened.
