with is what is replacing the letter o in the word power shift at top of shirt. the people behind the petition a group called stop police terror project d.c. say the symbol is a sun cross or t telltic cross and the group says it's synonymous with white supremacy and they are not happy with the imagery of the grim reaper carrying a gun along the d.c. police logo and the group says it makes light of the power police have to take someone's life. according to petition the officer wearing the shirt is vincent is altiere spotted wearing it on duty and even while he was in d.c. superior court. ard coulding to policy officers should not wear acasual wear during court appearances and i talked with the organizers of the petition pointing out the officer's kopts vaerial out tut. he says the shirt is unacceptable. >> what was put forward by this shirt from the grim r reaper on up shows way too cavalier an attitude towards the power of life and death that the police have over individuals and also clearly shows something that
