    Is it a Nazi salute? Or is it possibly something else like waving? Should the officers have been suspended?

    Perhaps they're saying their instructor was like a dictator?

    Seems more likely than a squad of not-so-secret nazis who've infiltrated the department.

    Sounds like they want us to believe this salute was done only after killing Jews, gypsies, queers and retarded people

    But glad we still despise nazis and their hatred of inferior races

    Hail Byrd - as in ROBERT Byrd, Dem from West Virginia?

    Hmmm. What a coincidence. I mean, sure they SAID it's their training instructor, but ...

    I'm going to wait for the rest of the story on this one.

    It's close enough... Even if it's not, I'm not sure you want these Einsteins roaming the streets (or even patrolling the prisons) with weapons..

    I laugh that it's the graduation photo after what I assume is a rigorous training situation.. reminds me of Bluto - "7 years of college down the drain"

    Raise your hand and you're a Nazi. Wear a Che Guevara shirt and you're a fashion icon. Just saying.

    This still picture alone and no audio does not prove anything way one way or another.

    The swastika and hammer&sickle should illicit an approximate response in everyone, imo.

    It does show their immaturity doing something so childlike.

    I was going to say that it might be someone asked them to raise their hand if they _(insert question here)__ . Smells phony.

    Well, anyone can be a nazi nowadays. Ben Shapiro and Candice Owners are high ranking members of the party.

    That is what I see when looking at old film of nazis. So looks like a nazi salute to me. This must be a field that low iq people can get a job. Our correctional employees here in my state dont get paid what the job is worth. Many turn bad and bring in contraband for prisoners They are getting caught quite often in my state.

    Of course those idiots should be fired!

    Prison guards. The salute was also used for Caesar, wasn't it? The "Hail Byrd" referencing West Virginian political icon (and now departed) Senator Byrd, probably indicates they had Caesar in mind instead of Hitler. Suspend them for an hour and then let them get back to work.

    Back in the 1980's we'd say "take a chill pill" to anyone who is high-strung. I think our entire country needs to take a chill pill and abandon political correctness.

    Actually Ben Shapiro is the biggest recipient of Alt-Right abuse online. If you bothered to do your reaearch you would know

    a) he is thoroughly milquetoast
    b) the far right ****ing despise him. They dont tend to be all that positive toward orthodox Jews.

    But The Young Turks told me that Shapiro was a Nazi, so... you're a Nazi sympathizer?
