Conservative roughed up on election night for wearing McCain-Palin t-shirt

From Philly comes the story of a young man who showed up at an Obama event election night wearing a McCain-Palin tee shirt. What happened afterwards was reminiscent of communist regimes.

A video surfaced of the young man being roughed up, handcuffed, and jailed. For what?

Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel said there was a constitutional right to freedom of expression that this man was denied.
"What I am afraid of is that there are some people who want to simply silence your views," he explained. "They talk about tolerance. They talk about, in fact, that they want to have everyone be tolerant toward one another, but in reality you find it's only a left-leaning liberal view that they're talking about."
Careful what you wear ... careful what you say ... careful who you worship ... it's East Germany -- oops, no -- it's 2008 in America.

I don't mean to condone that kind of behavior but, I mean it sounds like he went there with the intent of ruffling some feathers. It was like a former coworker of mine who got battered because he was in a bar rooting for the redskins, but he was in Dallas at the time and Dallas was who they were playing..
