Our top five videos of 2009: White T-Shirt Kicked out of P&L

Posted By on Thu, Dec 31, 2009 at 1:32 PM

Of all the footage we shot this year, this video was the most important. Ever since the Power & Light District opened, its dress code has been a source of controversy.  Some argued it unfairly targeted black men, others said it was simply about "setting a standard of attire" to protect the district's image. Meetings were held, marchers marched, and Cordish held discussions with city leaders. Even with all this, few people actually knew what enforcing the code looked like. Then on St. Patrick's Day, the Pitch Action News Team was in P&L getting some photographs when a young man in a white shirt who - as far as we could see - was only calmly drinking a beer with some friends, was surrounded by security guards and escorted out. Whatever your judgment of the situation is, it was important for people to get to see the dress code in action.
