We usally don't see eye to eye on things but can't see much wrong with what you said.

I agree if you want to fly it then go crazy, just get it off our gov buildings.

I wonder if we talked face to face if we'd agree more often.

Maybe not the wisest decision that the officer has made in his life, but still a bit over the top.

Chief Eddie Driggers issues a termination letter to the officer, Sgt. Shannon Dildine, saying the photo undermines the officer’s “ability to improve trust and instill confidence when working with our citizens.”


Pretty sure they've all done enough "Undermining" lately that 1 stupid FaceBook picture seen by only a few is going to have little affect.
Stupid as it may be, I don't think it justified firing him. Especially when you consider all the other bull#$it they've been getting away with.

He should have been yelling "stop resisting!" then he would just be on paid leave!!! (sorry couldn't resist)

I don't think he should be fired for that. Pretty stupid reason in my opinion, seems more to me like they were looking for a reason to fire this guy and just used this.

You guys need to sort your s##t out, very slowly America is becoming like George Orwell's 1984 or the movie Equilibrium.

Yes.
Cops in California can beat an unarmed man to death and get away with it.... underwear choice merits a firing.

The inmates are running the asylum.

Good. He would've gotten fired (or fired & interrogated) if he took pictures with an ISIS or al-Qaeda flag, too. And the Confederate States of America killed far more Americans than al-Qaeda & ISIS combined. So I have no problem with this.
I assume you feel the same way about the Union Jack?

If an individual thinks that the Confederate flag is a symbol of racism - they are a racist for thinking that way.

Confederate boxers aside, I have to question the man's ability to serve the public if he's the sort of person to take a picture of himself in his boxers and post it on Facebook.

What sort of respectable adult man does that?

I understand this is the new age of narcissism and selfies, but since when do grown men do this sort of thing?

What if it wasn't boxers, but a swim suit? After all, a swim suit is just a pair of waterproof underwear. Would that be OK?

Frankly, I think the guy is a fool for doing it, but, he does have protection for freedom of speech (at least I believe he does). I may not agree with his personal stance on racial integration (or lack thereof), but I will not be party to suppressing his right to express that belief. If I did, I would be a hypocrite.

He can say what he wants and post pictures of himself online wearing what he wants. That is not what I was addressing.

Perhaps it is the kind of person that I am, but I have to question why a grown man would post pics of himself on facebook wearing boxers, swimsuit, whatever.

A teenage boy? Sure. A grown ass man? Why?

I am not for taking down the American flag, just playing Devil's Advocate to your response.

While I don't think the rebel flag (why does nobody call it this anymore?) should not be flown over any government buildings, I also don't think someone should be fired for their boxers.

Although, with everything going on right now, he should have known better.

"Very slowly" isn't how I would describe it.

Of course, there are those (usually those who support this practice of punishing free thought) who would claim that anyone who felt this way was paranoid, or guilty of something just for insinuating an Orwellian tilt to today's societal fascism.

At the rate these types of events are progressing, the mere suggestion that society is becoming Orwellian in nature and practice, will soon result in mandatory public shaming, re-education, incarceration, or all of the above, to those making said suggestion.

The person who made the flag clearly said it was a flag for the surpioror race, that it was the white man's flag.


Sorry but you have to willfully ignorant to take the stance that it only represents heritage.

You think mlk would have defended that flag?

Since you want to quote him on this issue.

Was it Orwellian when the girl was fired from subway for her thoughts?

I'm not familiar with the story you're referring to, but no, I do not believe that anyone should be fired for their thoughts or beliefs. If they execute the job faithfully and properly, why should they be fired?
