Not the kind of advertising we want!

This guy was arrested over the weekend in chicago for firing an AK-47 at police. He is wearing a shirt from the company were I work.

Re: Not the kind of advertising we want!

Not easy to survive being shot .. especially with AK-47.

It will be interesting as to why the officers rounds did not hit anyone.......but it is possible they were "close"... which may have influenced the surrender.

Does anyone know, what is his relation to the company?

RIP, Marcus.

We are not sure what his relationship is to our company we are looking into it. We give t-shirts to all patients when they are discharged. So far we can not find him in our data base so we do not think he was ever a patient. We changed our software four years ago so we have not look in the archives as of yet. He may have received the shirt from a relative.

Or from a Goodwill store, where many 'give away' shirts end up. I know I've worn my share of advertising shirts without knowing the first think about the company represented on them.
