Well that is really stupid.
How is making a circle with your fingers racist? I have never heard such BS. The mayor says it doesn't matter?

" He said he has not spoken to them since to ask what they meant by the gesture. He said it doesn't matter."

Lol! Surprise surprise! The guy who doesn't know what racism is, creates a thread about officers throwing up racists signs.

Of course being the racist pussy the OP is, he didn't have the balls to add his own commentary.

Well shit! If you've never heard of it then surely its not an issue at all!

Btw, dumb ass, the circle game isn't played by posing for pictures where multiple people throw up a circle. Bullshit excuse is bullshit and anyone that cares about the rule of law would be and should be concerned about whether or not law enforcement is actively endorsing racism, which, throwing up an "ok" sign in that matter, most certainly is.

Never knew the circle game had any racist connotation to it. We used to play it, back in the 80s. If you got caught looking at it, and didn't get your finger in the circle, you got slugged in the shoulder, really hard. I know people of mixed color, who still play it with each other, including my son, who is pretty brown. I always just thought it was a guy's game.

Then please explain how making a circle with your fingers equals racist. If that is racist then I should be fired, because we use it all the time to indicate everything is OK.

According to the ADL

No, the "OK" Gesture Is Not a Hate Symbol

https://www.adl.org/blog/no-the-ok-gesture-is-not-a-hate-symbol

Mind you, it may be in the process of becoming a 'Pepe' moment where it's gradually morphing in to something real rather than a joke.

The 'ok' sign has certainly been taken with a particular 'style' by Trump supporters and provocateurs like Milo Whathisname and Richard Spencer.

Oh so all those guys were 4chann members who are throwing up white power ok signs as a joke? A joke that's over a year old? Makes perfect sense and is totally acceptable. I mean its not like there are any issues with policing and race./s

Correct, which is why saying you were playing the circle game while posing for pictures is complete bullshit.

Did you not bother to read beyond the quoted headline and link? You know, *my* words?

Let me try again:

Along those lines you might find these links worth looking at.

What's gonna be the next offensive thing...the thumbs up, or down sign? The things people are getting offended about is getting pretty damn ridiculous. If I give my buddy a high five, outside the shop and someone of a different color sees it, then thinks it's some sign of racism, I'm gonna have problems? Apparently, that is the shift. Well, fuck me running!

Why yes I did. Does that some how invalidate my point and my questions?

If I flip you off with my middle finger would you be offended? If I suck my pinky out and pointed to the ground would you be offended? Take a guess as to why those two similar, yet different actions, result in different reactions. Think real hard.

You know the part of the ADL article where it says this was a hoax directed at fucktarded, TDS suffering liberals who scream racist every time something happens they don't like? That would be you two.

I hope those guys sue the fuck out of that city and the mayor. I particularly liked the part where he checked with a couple of black guys to see if the punishment is appropriate.

Good job!

Hush child. Go back to playing with your pet cockroach and dream of the day that they trust you with a puppy.

Congrats! It took you a whole 10 minutes to come back and add a picture to your post.

I assume you just figured out how to post pictures from your phone. Who is that, your sister? Co worker? Or just some girl you were stalking?
