Store Making 'Breathe Easy' T-shirts Vandalized
The South Bend, Ind. store making the “Breathe Easy” T-shirts was reportedly vandalized last week. Witnesses say that someone threw a brick through the window of the South Bend Uniform Company on Dec. 19, according to a report by CBS 22.
The company, owned by a local police officer, started making the T-shirts in response to the “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts worn by protestors as well as some professional athletes.
According to the report, three South Bend City Council members have asked the company to stop selling the shirts, but production continues.
The owner, Jason Barthel, has said that this act of vandalism has not slowed down or stopped production at all, according to a report by ABC 57 in South Bend. He said that though he had the intention of selling only 200 shirts locally, his business has taken off and sold worldwide.
