DNC Police T-Shirt:”We Get Up Early to Beat the Crowds”

DENVER — The Denver police union is selling T-shirts that poke fun at protesters at last month’s Democratic National Convention, but the main target isn’t laughing. The back of the shirts reads, "We get up early to beat the crowds" and "2008 DNC," and has a caricature of a police officer holding a baton. The front has the number 68 with a slash through it, a reference to the Recreate 68 Coalition, which organized several demonstrations during the convention.

I hope this design is introduced as evidence in every police brutality lawsuit launched against the Denver Police Department from now on.

Makes me extra sad to see a union joking about beating people up.
