South Jersey Mall Reverses Decision To Ban Anti-Police Brutality T-shirts

CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey mall that asked a koon kiosk operator to stop selling anti-police brutality T-shirts that read “This Has to Stop!” is now inviting the vendor to sell the shirts.

The Cherry Hill Mall on Tuesday asked the kiosk to stop selling the $20 shirts because they were considered offensive. The shirts feature two stick figures resembling police officers beating a third figure on the ground.

The mall announced Wednesday it had reversed its “hasty” decision.

Kiosk operators say the shirts were created during an outcry over recent police shootings of black men in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Falcon Ridge, Minnesota.

A video posted online by the merchant says those offended by the shirts could be part of the problem. The video has tens of thousands of views.
