I only walk "with purpose" on my way to the restroom. Other times, I can be easily redirected.


Maybe he was on his way home and he really had to go.

The dude is wearing cut off jean shorts and looks like he's going for a stroll, NO weapon, no military-looking gear on his person, are you #ing #ting me? The "concerned citizen" is the one I have a problem with. What a crock of #

This is exactly what the pc crowd wants. Kinda like that school where they are told to call the police if their feelings get hurt.

The "PC generation"? You mean the PC movement? I don't think you can categorize it as a "generation", it doesn't seem to be limited to a certain age group at all. Seniors who are on their way out are outspoken about politically correctness, so are tweeners who are 14 and 15 who are easily influence by their parents, who are in the middle of both of those age groups.

Excellent point! I would have walked with purpose too, had I been him, also saying my "cheeks stay together" mantra while walking in the direction of relief.

I can't wait for the pendulum to swing the other way.

Of course it will be reports of people saying hello to one another as a covert klan/Christian plot to corrupt children. Or will there be a new Bush lied.People died. type of phrase?

People wonder how Nazi Germany got away with crap? People were scared of being mowed down for speaking up. Here in PC-USA people get SWATed due to the scared little rabbits squeaking up. Walking with a purpose...had the guy known the pupose would have been to kick some ass.

Ok. That's cool, but I'm not really concerned with who everyone wants to label as PC or not. To be honest, I just used the first expression I could think of. I just tire of these fake threads setup to get people to whine about political correctness. It isn't destroying the country to let people express themselves when they are offended that someone said something offensive. It's actually protected by the First Amendment.

Yes, the guy in the OP who called in the police report is an idiot, but idiots do that ALL THE TIME.

SWATed? No one got "SWATed".


According to police scanner traffic, police determined the man was exercising his First Amendment rights and not violating the law, WTOP reported.

None of which sounds to me like outrage. Resignation, irritation, annoyance, yes. Outrage, no.

So... worried man calls police. Everything is fine... No one arrested, no rights violated. He DARE he!!! ??

If this was a Mexican carrying a Mexican flag, or a transgender person using the public bathroom, I bet the entire feel of this thread would be different (supportive of the caller).

Look, if I'm genuinely afraid of something, or something looks suspicious to me, I'm going to let someone know about it. In this country today, there are people shooting up schools, theaters, bombing marathons and threatening people online. It's a "thing". If a man wants to call the cops, even if I don't agree with his reasons, it's his right and I'm not going to bash him for it.

Having said that, there are people who would call the cops just to be a nuisance. Maybe that happened here and maybe it didn't. But I see people here being OFFENDED because they don't agree with the caller's REASONS. Who's being PC?

What have we learned? That it's not politically correct to be concerned about someone if he's carrying the confederate flag. What this caller did is offensive to some. I don't think it's any of my business.

Now, if the flag man had been arrested or his rights violated, then I'd be joining in. But it was a HARMLESS situation.

"Seniors who are on their way out" would be, what age bracket, please? I've had 3 deaths to mourn since last week, and the oldest was 72. None died of old age or natural causes. They died in separate vehicle vs. Pedestrian accidents. They were pedestrians.

So, taking in account your point toward this OP, how do you determine who is on their way out?

Note: none of these decent members of humanity would have reported a guy carrying a confederate flag.

I'm just glad he wasn't a 12 year old boy with a toy gun.

Heh. If you seriously think that then I really am at a loss for words. All I got left now is that you are making me believe that you just want to complain about pc too so you are defending such outlandish and silly comments (they are all lies about political correctness btw).

Sometimes when I have to use the bathroom really bad, I walk with a purpose.

Sorry if I offend anyone

ETA: Looks like somebody beat me to this gem of a comment, oh well it just proves that this walking with a purpose crap is being blown out of proportion. Too many glass emotions running around the world.

Finally, some sanity in this thread! I was beginning to think I was the only one who could keep a level head in this issue. Apparently if the confederate flag is involved any sort of inconvenience someone experiences while having it requires full on rage.

If this incident didn't even involve the confederate flag, this issue wouldn't even be a thread right now.


Man... how dare you talk commonsense, which contradicts the conservative conspiracy about how Obama is actively trying to attack conservative traditional values... by getting citizens to make petty 911 calls!

After all, it was obviously a liberal socialist psyops operation against conservative Americans, which caused this 911 call.

Now, if the flag man had been arrested or his rights violated,
a reply to: Benevolent Heretic

Did he not have the right to walk down a public street, holding a flag, walking with purpose? Sure he did. The point here is that someone felt he did not have this right, deemed his walking as somehow confirmation of nefarious intent, and impeded his rights by calling the police. He certainly was wronfully stopped and questioned simply because the caller felt their rights were of more value than the flagman's rights. Understanding this, if you would call the police, BH, then you'd be part of this growing PC problem.

Just to be honest, now you know how we feel. People have been doing this crap to minorities in America for decades. I've had police called on me for far less. I literally had police called on me for talking to my Mom in a city park a few years ago.

If the thread title said "concerned citizen calls 911 over man walking 'with a purpose' wearing hoodie", no one would bat an eye. Or "concerned citizen calls 911 over woman walking 'with a purpose' with a Muslim headscarf", some of you might have even applauded it.

Not really. I find the entire story to be humorous. I find the reactions in this thread, including yours, to be rather funny as well. You're pretty obviously outraged about other people's outrage. Somebody doesn't see it how you do? Go on the attack.

The irony is thick.

Heh.
