Tort reform

No, this isn’t really about tort reform. Mike Ferner posts about getting arrested for drinking coffee while wearing a political T-shirt. He wore a Veterans for Peace short in a Chicago VA hospital and was arrested for “protesting” in the hospital.

My thought is that it isn’t enough for a court to just dismiss the case against him. This is one of those cases that should cost the government a couple of million dollars. Only when it starts actually costing agencies money will they care enough to make policy changes and train their people to respect those policies.
