I'm sure dad was perfectly reasonable when informed he couldn't wear that particular shirt. Universal Studios just loves to kick their paying customers out.

Yeah, I'm smelling asshole around here, and a clean t-shirt isn't going to cover the stink.

Just imagine what would have happened if he was wearing this:

Gawd, idiots are still wearing fake law enforcement gear?

I remember in college working at a coffee shop in a mall and this dude in black fatigues with a badge around his neck kept doing the rounds. He finally came up and ordered some coffee and I saw that his badge read "CCW Permit Holder", and he had a hat that said "AGENT" on it.

farking weirdos

Oh I missed that on the first read. That's...that's just adorable.

I can't blame them. I wouldn't let anyone in a POLICE shirt on my property without a warrant, either.
 
2013-09-03 10:48:13 PM  
The fact that he was buying a new shirt to comply with security makes it seem like he wasn't being a dick about it. But you never know.
 
2013-09-03 10:48:52 PM  
He could have worn a shirt bearing "Unaccountable Thug" and still got his ego boost and not have gotten kicked out.

Inaccurate headline.  If they were heading to Blue Man Group, it is very unlikely they were in the park.  They were in Citiwalk.  But I guess it's not quite so newsworthy when you say they were kicked out of an outdoor mall.

Wow, this guy is actually worse than real cops.

Henry Padovani got in trouble again for wearing that shirt???

Yeah this is the free parking, outdoor mall area. The girl quoted in the article even says "mall security" kicked them out.

My first thought as well, though plenty of people visit the park and head to an evening show.
 
2013-09-03 10:54:04 PM  
They're obviously leaving some important parts out of this story. What most likely happened:

Man was approached by security concerning his shirt, was politely told he cant wear it.

Man gets belligerent, screaming about his rights, freedom of expression and how he will sue the theme park etc.

Security tells him he still can't wear the shirt and must change it or leave the park.

Man escalates his rant and it turns physical and security escorts him off the premises.

Man runs to local news about how he was just walking along, minding his own business when suddenly...

My husband has t-shirts with police & fire dept logos on them (he is firefighter). Depts trade them when they assist each other; like when a lot of out of town PD&FD pitched in after Hurricane Ike. He wears those things all the time when we are at Universal and no one has ever said anything, even when we went to BMG...methinks we aren't getting the whole story from these folks....

I got shooed out of Centennial Park (ATL) for wearing a t-shirt that said "Innocent Bystander " Tee. Their argument was that I could be misunderstood as an official participant in a mass casually drill. I had been a part of one at GPSTC earlier that month and told them so. Long story short I told them I thought was bullshiat and once they agreed I let it go. The Atlanta Metro guys are farking overzealous since the '96 event I guess.

At the Orlando park, there is a gate inside the park too. It is usually too crowded to use it though....

There's a difference between a shirt with a municipal logo on it and a shirt with big bold letters that read "POLICE" that's meant to look official and/or intimidating.
 
2013-09-03 10:55:54 PM  
I'm sure there's something missing from the story here.  Either (a) some rent-a-cop's poor little ego got hurt when they questioned the policy or (b) this guy got a little too offensive.  I'm guessing it's close to 75% (a) 25% (b).

All they really had to do was have a supervisor ask him to turn the shirt inside out, problem solved, situation over.  Instead it has to turn into a circus of security swarming some guy because of his shirt which turns into a media goat rodeo.
 
2013-09-03 10:56:29 PM  
That probably has nothing to do with this story but I had to tell that one at some point. Oh well/

The CityWalk and theme park lots are one and the same (have to pass through the former to get to the latter), but it's free after 10pm when the parks are closed. At that point it's usually a case of salmon swimming upstream with traffic, though.

Fun thing to do: Stand near the CityWalk sign and see how many Asian tourists sound like a certain South Park character when reading it.

I guess, though these aRe the ones they wear on duty. But I think they only say POLICE or FIRE in the sleeves rather than the chest or back so I would guess that is the difference. That and he generally doesn't act like an asshole AW so there is that fact too.

Is there?  I rarely see real cops/firefighters wearing t-shirts that say POLICE or FIREFIGHTER in big letters.  If there in a t-shirt/polo it's usually dark blue or white with a municipal logo.

I worked at Disney for a while- this policy makes sense from Universal's perspective.  In a crowded area full of kids, you don't want anyone to be able to impersonate a law enforcement officer.  When this happened at Walt Disney World, we would just issue them a coupon for a free park shirt (nothing so stylish that it would be worth scamming anyone over) and send them to one of the merch locations.  Never had anyone act like a dick about it.

Yeah, that's what I mean, it's usually only the weekend warrior goofballs who wear the "POLICE" or "FBI" paraphernalia, not the actual cops.

You are correct, none of his have anything that Obnoxious on them: small logos, small badges, t
Station mascots. I wasn't thinking like that when I commented. I forgot about the wannabes....

There is something fishy here, and it does not smell like the park security.  If he was willing to (and in the process of!) buy a new shirt why would they just kick him out?  Yeah, it makes absolutely no sense.

I was assaulted by a cop wearing a simple black t-shirt that said "POLICE" on it.  He asked me demanded Identification, I said "no problem, can I see yours?" he then shoved it in my face, literally touched my face with it.  I filed a complaint since he had no leverage (I didnt live in the county and he had nothing to charge me with, he was just trying to bully me into performing a service for the hood rat he was farking and she didnt want to pay for it)  Its a lot of hassle to shiat on a cop, you have to call the supervisor out, talk with him, go to mediation and everything, the whole time knowing nothing at all would ever happen to the shiatstain, but I wasnt going to let it go.  Cops suck.

According to the Jaroszes, while they were buying the new shirt and questioning the policy, more security showed up. "

Ha, I have been those security guards, when I was at Disneyland. I know how these idiots were "questioning" the policy.

[at the top of his voice]
"THOSE MOTHERF*CKERS WOULDN'T LET ME WEAR MY SHIRT! I GOTTA BUY THIS MOTHERF*CKING OVERPRICED SHIRT BECAUSE THOSE RENTACOP ASSHOLES HAD A PROBLEM WITH MY SHIRT! I THOUGHT THIS WAS A FREE COUNTRY, WELL I GUESS NOT!!"

That is how they were "questioning the policy."

Any time someone runs to the media to whine about an alleged slight of this nature, I automatically assume they deserve whatever came to them.  It's the only  way we will ever put an end to the mindless AWing drivel that is consuming our society.
 
2013-09-03 11:17:06 PM  
years ago I was at the park on a first date, and we ended up getting tanked in Margaritaville and having a lot of PDA at the bar.  People were buying us drinks and shots.

Two old ladies come sit at the bar and order deserts and immediately get the manager to complain about us, the people drinking at the bar, cheering when the large blender cano erupted margaritas.

The flaming manager said "Honeys, I will comp your dinner, but this is a bar, one made famous about a song getting drunked, that is what all these people came here for, not cheesecake, if you want family you can take your asses to Disney."

Then he comped the bar a round.

Yeah, something doesn't add up. As someone else said, turn the damn shirt inside out (or just take it off altogether until you get a new one).

Got to have been some dickery on the part of the father or security. Or both.
