Peoria, Arizona Sgt. Pat Shearer was at the center of a recent Secret Service investigation after snapping a photograph of gun-wielding teenagers hoisting a bullet-ravaged t-shirt of President Obama. Shearer admitted to being embarrassed that the picture made its way to Facebook, but dismissed the actions of the kids as nothing more than a "political statement."

The secret service says that this whole ignorant mess is protected by "free speech," but by that logic, there should've been a bunch of Swiss-cheesed Reagan tees in every hood during the '80's. Right?
