    SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- If you go shopping at the Battlefield Mall in Springfield, be careful what you wear.

    A 10-year-old girl got in trouble while shopping with her mom, because she had on a bandana.

    Lydia Smith was wearing a bandana, decorated with peace signs, smiley faces and flowers.

    A security guard approached her at the food court and said the bandanna violated the mall's code of conduct, which is "wearing apparel which is likely to provide a disturbance or embroil other groups or the general public in open conflict."

    what is wrong with our society? Could a child this age actually harm someone? I think not! This reminds me of the time my friend was dressed up as an easter bunny for the toy store he was working at and the mall security kicked him out of the mall. I really question our future...

    Guess we won't be stopping at that mall again...if a 10yr old might create a disturbance with a banadana, then we'd probaly be capable of starting a riot with our long hippie hair & tie-dyes!!!

    When the people who rely on the consumer for their livelyhood become so sure we're addicted to their shit that they can tell us what to wear it's time to stop buying thier shit.

    I use to work with a woman who had cancer, and she was at Union Station in St.louis, a mall, and she always wore a bandana because she was bald due to Chemotherapy. A security guard asked her to take it off because of the same type of law, she refused and was then escorted out of the mall and they were not very gentle.

    precisely how is a 10-year-old or a cancer patient wearing a bandana "likely to provide a disturbance or embroil other groups or the general public in open conflict"???

    severedheadstoner ridiculously sane

    I guess the peace sign must offend some people. Or flowers or smiley faces. But the fact that she was 10 years old is irrelivant. These places have to be consistant, or they'll get people saying "but you let her wear it, why can't i wear mine?"

    I agree that it's a rediculous rule, but would you wear your shoes in a friends house after their mother asked you to take them off?

    i'm starting to see why ppl are associating us with nazi germany... i would think a mall would be a place where southern school dress codes are moot.

    Better watch out for those little kids wearing bandanas. They might do something horrible, like pick up a teen magazine, or buy candy. If that happens, society will crumble for sure.
