U.S. President Barack Obama speaks to firefighters at the headquarters of Engine Company 54, Ladder Company 4 and Battalion 9, in New York, U.S., on Thursday, May 5, 2011. The firehouse lost 15 members, the single largest loss of life of any firehouse among the 343 firefighters who died during the attack on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Obama will go to New York's "Ground Zero" today, seeking to provide some closure to the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil now that the world's most hunted terrorist, al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, won't be "walking on this earth again."

The shirt, one of several featuring the slogan that have been seen around the league in recent days after a grand jury declined to indict the officer last week, is just one in a long history of political statements made by athletes on the playing field.
