Man kicked out of Stones River Mall for 'extremely distasteful' T-shirt

MURFREESBORO — A man ejected from the Stones River Mall in Murfreesboro for wearing what mall security deemed an “extremely distasteful” shirt was arrested Saturday on criminal trespassing and false report charges.

Stanley Bryce Myszka, 42, was escorted from the mall by security after he refused to remove or cover a shirt that read “Has your gun killed a kindergartner today?” He was arrested by Murfreesboro Police, who were called by security officers.

Hmmmm... close call. I get his point, as do most on this forum. But the anti-gun crowd, thinking we're all cold-blooded killers at heart, would obviously think something else.

I think there are better ways to make your point.

Crap like this is not helpful. He has a right to say what he wants, and the property owners have a right to boot his dumb ass off the property.

What a moron.

Are you reading that as pro gun? I'm reading it as he was anti gun.

Pro Gun.

The question asked by the phrase on the shirt is: "Does a gun, in and of itself, have the power to kill?"

The answer is of course, no. A point the anti's ignore, or simply can't comprehend.

What about the First Amendment?

The first amendment applies to the government. Property owners have rights too.

I have no problem with him being escorted to the edge of the property at the behest of the property owners.

Play stupid games.....

Looks like he tripped himself up.

Mall spokeswoman Heather Rose said security received complaints about Myszka’s shirt, which she said was “clearly in violation of our code of conduct.”

Being that we are private property, we do have a policy that is in place that deals with conduct,” she said. “He has been banned from returning to the property.”

Officers with the Murfreesboro Police Department later reported they caught Myszka in a lie about how he got to the mall, which is why he was charged with filing a false report. Myszka first told police he was dropped off by a friend, according to an MPD report, only to later admit he had driven himself to the mall without a license.

Not a very smart fellow if you ask me. He's not helping our side of the argument.

And for lying.

limited information given here but - huh? He was arrested for trespass? If the mall owner asked him to leave and he argued, then fine, trespass him. But if they call the law and the law arrests him?? I think the mall will be writing a rather large check to this fellow.

And for lying.Wouldn't he have had to have been caught in the act to be arrested?

Caught in the act of lying?

This is speculation, but I have to wonder if he told them someone else drove him there because he had been drinking.

He'll get his day in court I guess.

That is how a pro gun owner might look at it.

I read it as he was talking to gun owners 'your gun' kills kindergarteners.

I think the mall will be writing a rather large check to this fellow.I think media sensationalism and selective reporting have given a lot of people a really skewed sense of how often these types of lawsuits succeed and how much the plaintiff actually gets.

It depends on a lot. Not enough details in the story to tell for sure.
