North Jersey police officer sells "House of Pain" T-shirts. Police chief condones it.

Great PR, guys!





At least one member of a North Jersey police department is selling t-shirts with the department's name and a logo some people believe is in bad taste -- given some of its officers have been accused of using excessive force in arrests.

The shirts have the Elizabeth Police Department's name and feature a "fighting Irish" man in police uniform, modeled after the University of Notre Dame's fighting leprechaun, as well as the words "House of Pain."

But Police Chief John Brennan said he's fine with it because the image is just a play on an album cover for the 1990s hip hop group House of Pain, best known for the song "Jump Around."

"The shirt has nothing to do with violence," he said in a phone interview.

1. Pack it up, pack it in let me begin

"A girl steps up, I'm smacking the ho" may not be the BEST excuse to prove "it's nothing about violence."

3. IMHO that song was way over hyped

Now they are going to bring it back for this? It's ridiculous! Come up with something original for a change.
