The front of the T-shirt says "S.E.T MEMBER." SET, as in: "Scumbag Eradication Team."
The back of the shirt (which Daytona Beach News-Journal Describes as "a potty humor cartoon") has a picture of Chief Chitwood smiling while dunking the aforementioned scumbag's head in the toilet. Below it, the phrase: "Not in our town!"
There are people who think the whole thing is tacky minus fabulous. To that, Chitwood replies, "If somebody doesn't like the fact that I call them a scumbag, too bad!"
OK. So we've settled that.
You also need to know, there's a really touching back-story that deals with a Chitwood family tradition of "Scumbag" T-shirts. Chitwood's father is a police chief in Upper Darby Township Pennsylvania, where the officers made shirts that say: "Not in my town, SCUMBAG." Isn't it cool to see families pass down their customs from one generation to the next?
The shirts are 10 bucks a piece, which really is top dollar in Orlando (home of the "5 T-shirts for $6.99" special).
