    There are many ways to show support for the troops.
    They guy broke the rules after warnings and should be suspended.

    I see no reason for false outrage over this.
    Seems like after being in the service he would have known to follow the rules.

    btw this is the first I had heard of the red shirt support.

    Maybe you're right.

    But then again people said the same thing about Rosa Parks at the time.

    Not sure how you're comparing a workplace dresscode to what Parks did.

    Nevertheless, a comparison can be made. Not a meaningful one mind you, but certainly a philosophical and logic comparison can be made. They were both 'breaking the rules'.

    So was Jeffery Dalhmer.
    ;)

    See what happens when you broaden your comparison rules too far?

    Manifold is often not the brightest bulb.
