The (Wannabe) Jack-Booted Thug of the Week... the clueless private security guard at the Federal building in Van Nuys, California who threw out a woman and threatened her with arrest because she entered wearing a T-shirt with the words "" on the front. Just the words, mind you.

The ironies just abound. "Free speech is great, unless you want to come into the building that you pay for."

The woman, Lapriss Gilbert, contacted the real police, but was re-admitted to the building and ushered to the front of the line before they showed up by embarrassed officials, who have hopefully terminated their contract with Paragon Security, whose employees don't seem to understand how Constitutional rights work.
