School ban of Metal Mulisha gear stirs debate

December 13, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
Controversy is brewing over Murrieta Valley Unified School District's ban of specific sports gear by Metal Mulisha, a freestyle motocross team.The group is known for incredible stunts and a controversial clothing line.

The school district said they could be considered Nazi. It said Nazi used the lightning-bolt- shaped "s," and they used helmets like those on the Metal Mulisha insignia.

The ban has been in place for about five years.

An attorney representing the distributor recently sent a letter to the school district threatening a lawsuit unless a dress code banning the gear is dropped.
