Murrieta Valley district prohibits clothes with logo that some say resembles Nazi symbols

From The Los Angeles Times: A company in Irvine, Calif., is threatening to sue the Murrieta Valley (Calif.) Unified School District over its ban on a clothing line inspired by a local stunt dirt bike team and adorned with logos resembling Nazi insignia. The Metal Mulisha Riders from Temecula — known for their irreverent attitudes, gravity-defying stunts and tattoos — have many fans among motocross-loving teenagers. But critics say the clothes they wear include Nazi-style helmets and a lightning bolt "S" similar to those worn by Nazi military forces. Several schools — including the Murrieta Valley district, which serves Temecula — have barred high school students from wearing clothes branded with the Mulisha logo.
