These three dudes may or may not be involved in some plot that involves attacking President Obama's campaign headquarters in Chicago, as well as Rahm Emanuel's house, which -- given the state of today's political climate -- is a terrible idea.

With loose ties to the Occupy Movement, Jared Chase, Brent Betterly, and Brian Church were arrested a few days ago for allegedly planning a series of attacks in Chicago during today's NATO summit. Police found Molotov cocktails and cited their plans to attack banks, police stations, in addition to aforementioned political stations. The trio's lawyer, Michael Deutsch, says that they are the victims of an elaborate setup:

From what we've learned, we believe it is a setup — entrapment to the highest degree — and it is sensationalism by the police and the state to discredit the protesters who have come here to nonviolently protest.

Government setups aren't anything new, however, the dreadlock-Misfits shirt combo might make people doubtful of your innocence.
