    Tell Me What You Know About Crime Inc. Clothing

    I was at the Texas State Fair last week and saw a guy wearing a t-shirt that said "Crime Inc." on the front with two guns. The back said "Shoot Informants, Not Drugs."

    I was really thrown off, since this is essentially printing a deadly threat on a t-shirt. Anyone else seen this clothing and know anything about this? Am I missing some clever wrinkle that makes this stuff "cool?"

    I've never seen this and I have to admit the humor escapes me. I don't think there is anything illegal about it but like I said, I don't get it.

    Wouldn't that be like "Snitches Get Stitches"?
    Unless they have changed the 1A...completely legal.

    A quick Google search turned up very little conclusive info... I am curious about this because to me it seems that a t-shirt like this is esentially the same as climbing on a box and yelling "if there is an informant in here that narcs on drug dealers, I think they should be shot!" Wouldn't that be illegal?

    Here are their t-shirts:

    Crime Inc. Clothing - Men's T-Shirts - all

    I think it is gear for biker gangs.

    I doubt if it is illegal. In many cases 1A protects an individuals right to make a fool of themselves

    I exercise BOTH my 1A and 2A rights.

    I just try not to exercise them both at the same time.

    Tasteless parody.

    An old friend of mine used to wear t shirts that had graphics from alternative bands, one was "Fudge Tunnel". Another said: "Kill one man and you are a murderer. Kill a million men and you are a conqueror. Kill everyone and you are a god."

    Him and his t shirts got kicked out of more than one amusement park.

    It's a t-shirt, not a threat... Pretty sure there's loads of similar shirts, only the 'target' is different. How about the old 'Kill 'em all, let God sort 'em out', or the turban wearing silhouette with cross-hairs over it. I don't think that one is any more offensive, or illegal, just because the 'target' is less politically correct.

    I think that Crime Inc was Billy Lane's clothing line. Billy was the custom bike builder in Florida. I say was because he is in the Big House for hitting and killing a guy on a moped and he was driving on a revoked license and awaiting a court date on another driving charge. I guess the clothing name kinda fit, huh?

    Just because you don't like the message, doesn't mean it's illegal. If everyone agreed on everything, there would be no need for 1A.
