If they were that offended, why not make her turn her shirt inside out?

I didn't think there was a law, even in the UK, prohibiting the wearing of "offensive" clothing. What's she going to be charged with, one count of wearing an ugly, pink, cloth, non-weapon weapon? Have the UK Customs Police now become the "fashion police?" When is this hysteria and complete lack of common sense going to stop?

(By the way, I thought that the shirt was about as dumb looking as you can get. No, I take that back, I have seen one or two more stupid than this one.)

"Offensive"? Give me a break.
But the shirt did look like it was made by a first grade teacher.
I suppose now they will stop adults wearing gun club shirts or advertising shirts from Smith & Wesson....

...and better not be listening to Guns and Roses on your Ipod. Or "Mack the Knife?"

Yeah, they should have arrested her just because that shirt is BUTT UGLY. At the very least she could have matched her fuzzy revolver to the other fabric.
