A man with a tattoos that include a swastika, upside down crosses and “666” was escorted out of a public pool on Capitol Hill by police on Sunday after patrons objected to his presence and he became belligerent with a life guard, D.C. officials said.


WaPo story

Are tattoos next?

I understand he became belligerent AFTER he was confronted.
I wonder which tattoo caused "the objection of his presence"? The article title describes the swastika tattoo but the article does not specify which tattoo caused the confrontation. It could have been the "666" or "upside down cross". I guess the Nazi stuff will get more clicks.

IMO, I think this is going too far. Yes, he could have wore a shirt or somehow covered the offensive tattoos (I'm not sure of the location of the offensive ink), but should he have to?

I agree that he should leave after becoming belligerent, but what about the one's who HAD to voice their concerns regarding the tattoos?



The statement continued, “We want to reassure our guests that while the agency does not deny access to programs or facilities based on personal appearance, we do require that all guests and employees treat one another with respect.”


Insisting someone leave a public place due to a tattoo doesn't seem very respectful to me.

I see offensive and downright stupid tattoos regularly. They chose to display these on their bodies and they have to live with their choices, but people now CHOOSE to confront them if they find it offensive.

I don't have any tattoos and I really don't care for them but people get them for many different reasons.
If you look hard enough, I am sure there is a tattoo somewhere that you don't agree with.
Divorced soccer mom tramp stamps?
Prison tats?
Gang tats?
Where does it stop?
Can I ask someone to cover their Yankees or Cubs tattoo now?

j/k i'm sure they get ridiculed enough

Unless he was exhibiting unusual or aggressive behavior, this is a free country, right?

Won't someone think of the children!?

I mean isn't that the excuse the Right uses to argue against pride parades or even homosexuals being allowed public displays of affection? Why shouldn't that apply to Nazis as well? At least with homosexuals the explanation is one of love and not hate.

Nazi's take great pride in their tattoos and white supremacy, anti Jewish stance. I can see how some people of color and people of the Jewish religion might be offended by a symbol of racist connotation, used to exterminate 6 million people.

WWII is still fresh in the minds of many people that lost relatives fighting Nazi scum. I'm one of them.

seems to me that corporations and private businesses are the perfect tool to legally subvert the constitution, we need to amend the constitution to make it also apply to private entities too, otherwise i fear liberty will be destroyed with the excuse of it being private property.

freedom or repression are the only two futures for america, you can't have it both ways.

What a sad day. This country is broken, and I'm not seeing any viable less-broken ones out there to move to.

Censorship isn't cool, people...

I wonder if it's going to come to a head? I'd fight my fellow citizens if I had to, but how do you fight an idea? How do you stop this?

I'd say it has to do with his belligerence and not so much the tattoos, but let's go with the tattoos. ATS needs another hyperbolic reason to hate the left right?

PS: People have been getting # for their questionable tattoos for a long time. A sergeant in my old unit had a spider web on his elbow that apparently means something that he was unaware of when he got it. He would hear # about it all the time. This was back in 2005.

Being offended now trumps individual rights.

We should ban them also.

Its always funny when someone justifies a wrong with a wrong...like you didn't think the push back about pride parades was wrong or something...

No of course you think its wrong for people to use excuses like "think of the children" to try and prevent pride parades. So why would it be right to discriminate against someone's tattoos? We need to put this culture of "freedom unless it offends me" to rest before we really do go off the deep end. It always starts with the smallest minorities because most people can agree on that...even if its like this where most of us think Nazism is disgusting. Then its the next thing and the next before you know it is normal and people are silenced and cut off from all kinds of things because their thing was deemed not ok with the crowd.

What do you call that? Plain and ordinary behavior?

Authorities said the man was asked to leave “due to offensive language and inappropriate behavior.”


Hmm

He became belligerent after being approached right? So why was he approached to begin with? If the article is,to be believed then it was because of his tattoos. So what do you think was said to him that made him angry and was about his tattoos? I would bet that he was told to cover them up or leave...what other reason would they approach him about the complaints involving his tattoos? Do you think the guy from the pool was going over to sympathise with him and,compliment his tats??? Of course not!

Did you guys read the article?

The statement says patrons objected to the man’s presence and that a lifeguard “responded by trying to speak with the individual. At this point, the individual became irate, repeatedly and aggressively using offensive language toward the lifeguard. As the situation began to escalate, a second lifeguard intervened, and the police were called.”

Authorities said the man was asked to leave “due to offensive language and inappropriate behavior.”

Stop blindly believing # you read in the OP. The OP is clearly distorting the events of what happened. People may have complained about the tattoos, but it was this asshole's behavior that got him ejected. The OP is glossing over all this in order to push the stupid idea that he was ejected due to his tattoos. PAY ATTENTION!
