Freedom of Speech – But Not At the Mall


05/22/2013 by syrbal-labrys

1rules for lifeMy goodness,is it just me or do mall cops have some inflated sense of their own power? First, there is the story of one attacking a customer in a parking lot for taking photographs, and now they escorted the mourning children of a breast cancer victim out of the mall for wearing hats that said “Fuck Cancer” with the “c” in fuck replaced by a pink ribbon.

Personally, I don’t think a mall has any right to tell me what to wear. And I think, frankly, since both of the above incidents involved women….I think it was because they were women that the mall cops felt empowered to boss them around. Anyone who doesn’t like the word “fuck” can avert their fucking eyes. I see people walking around in horrid body warping spandex, or pajamas, or dirty-toed in flip-flops; those things are more offensive to me than profanity.

And I just don’t see what threat there is in a word. If they are so afraid of the word “fuck” maybe they should stop selling shit in their shitty stores that SAYS “fuck”…since I can think of every music store and many t-shirt stores in malls having merchandize using the word in plentiful fashion. But then, why that word and not any other? Are we going all “Demolition Man” in malls with fines for violating the obscenity code? Tell you what, they can shove the Three Seashells up their asses, too.

Pssst? Mall managers? YOu should know maybe that we can all shop ONLINE in our pajamas…or nude…and using whatever words we like best!

      Kind of makes you wonder, doesn’t it? I frankly find the whole ‘no pictures’ thing bizarre, too. I mean, wtf, we talking some sort of mall-ville ‘national security’ here?

    What’s a mall?

    I’m about 120 miles from the nearest one. Don’t spend much time in such places. Look at all the asshatery I’m not dealing with by living out in the woods.

    Mall cops . . . don’t they realize they are a joke?

      I’m much closer to them, but haven’t shopped inside one in about ten or twelve years. And crap like this is one reason. I once worked in one, the worst days were Tuesdays….that is when the local hospital for mental cases bus-unloaded their “ambulatory” folks for the day.
      I used to have to call the mall cops because one guy stood at the edge of my carpet masturbating thru his pants staring at me and other staff demonstrating exercise machines. Thank goodness the guy nick named “Bobby Brown” was not a joke!
