POLICE SUE OVER MUSTACHE BAN
Published on June 13, 1992
A dozen police officers, bristling over the prospect of being forced to shave their mustaches, have filed suit in US District Court in Boston. Under new regulations, officers with the Metropolitan, Capital, Registry, and state police forces must be clean shaven when the four departments merge under a consolidated Massachusetts Department Of State Police July 1. The mustachioed officers told US District Judge Rya Zobel on Thursday that their facial hair is part of their individuality.
Unfortunately the facial hair ban went through, and the officers still to this very day can't have mustaches. And in a state like Massachusetts were they consider themselves forward thinking progressives. Only in Massachusetts can two men get married and fuck the shit out of each other, but an officer of the law can't even have a masculine mustache.
