Chilling Stuff

I've never been one to feel the need to exercise my right to bear arms, but after seeing this man get arrested for wearing a McCain/Palin shirt at an Obama victory rally in Philadelphia after the election...  Well, it gives me pause.

This was posted by Ace yesterday (hey, no need in changing my MO of "day late, dollar short" now) but his commenters make some good points.  It's a YouTube video, so we really have no way of knowing if something more serious actually prompted the arrest.  And also judging from the (we'll call it) zeal of the surrounding crowd, the officers involved were more likely just trying to avoid almost assured violence had the guy stuck around and opted for the easy (albeit less constitutional) route of just getting him the hell out of the situation.
