View Full Version : 'White Power' Shirt Man to Face Court

Monday, September 14th, 2009, 05:28 AM
Northern Territory Police have charged a 48-year-old Alice Springs man who tried to sell "White Power" merchandise with offensive behaviour in a public place.

The man has also been charged with making a false report to police regarding the alleged theft of his car numberplates.

The Southern Region's Acting Commander, Kym Davies, says the matter only became criminal after people told police they had been offended by the merchandise.

"As a result of our investigations the 48-year-old man was arrested in Alice Springs in relation to those matters," he said.

"So he was arrested for making a false report to police and offensive behaviour in a public place and he's been bailed to appear in the Alice Springs court."

You can wear a yarmulke, or a towel on your head, or a burqa, or an African robe, or a tie-dye hippie shirt. :thumbdown

But God forbid if you wear a White Power shirt.

The Z.O.G. will haul you off to court.

It is stupid to arrest someone for a shirt, as it is not offensive to anyone.

Although I think this is rather 'trashy'; at least call it White Pride, not White Power as if it is some ego inflator.

White power is so uch... it was a reaction on the black power slogan in the 60's in America, we Europeans have nothing to do with it, wear a Australian pride shirt or whatever, or a Anglo-Australian shirt.

You are totally right at all.

But there are countries, e.g. Germany;), where you are put in chains when you make use from your god given right of "free speech"!
