Journal cybermage's Journal: Couple Wins $80,000 Over Anti-Bush Shirts

A Texas couple who were removed from a July 4th rally for wearing anti-bush t-shirts settled their lawsuit with the federal government for $80,000.

The Associated Press has the story. The couple attended a rally where president Bush was to give a speech wearing their home-made protest shirts and were arrested for trespassing.

Their arrest, it seems, is part of official government policy:

The ACLU said in a statement that a presidential advance manual makes it clear that the government tries to exclude dissenters from the president's appearances. "As a last resort," the manual says, "security should remove the demonstrators from the event."

Sounds like a good way to make money if you ask me.
