Why would a sheriff do that?

Normally, as a clothing brand, you want your clothes on as many people as you can. Well, you should be careful what you wish for. A sheriff in Union County, Arkansas (USA) has been putting Nike t-shirts on people they arrest and making them wear them during mugshots, the photos the police take of people they arrest.

There are so many questions here:

  1. Why would a sheriff do that?
  2. Does he hate Nike?
  3. Why would a sheriff do that?
  4. Does he prefer adidas?
  5. Where does he get all the t-shirts?
  6. Why would a sheriff do that?
  7. Are they allowed to keep the t-shirts?

Not to mention the legal questions:

  1. Does this constitute as trademark infringement?
  2. Can it be considered “use as a trademark”?
  3. Is this harmful to Nike’s reputation?

And again: “Why would a sheriff do that?”
