Plan to protest Milford liquor store dries up
Plans to protest a Milford liquor store?s anti-war sign went bust Saturday after few gathered to confront the store?s owner.The controversy began 9 days ago at TJ's Package Store on River Street, where local veteran Greg Smith and the shop?s owner TJ Jakubisyn had a war of words over the sign. That confrontation resulted in a planned protest by Smith, that is until the boycott went bust.Those who did show up at the shop were mostly supportive of the owner. One WWII veteran said thanks to free speech Jakubisyn has the right to post whatever kind of sign he wants. Other vets showed up to support Jakubisyn?s right to critique the nation?s war policies. Jakubisyn says that he himself is a navy veteran. He has no plans to take down the poster.
