The salute is now symbolic of far-right fascism and making a Nazi salute is illegal in Germany and punishable by up to three years of prison

Also ... don't mention the war.

Because the Nazis were known for discriminating against non Aryans, and he thought the kid was giving him the Nazi salute.

That said, beating someone severely no matter what kind of gestures they're making at you is beyond wrong. If they're actually striking you, then have at.

Seriously? He beat your 16 year old child for throwing his hand in the air and then grinning at him. I think he should do some time for that myself. There's no excuse he's going to be able to give to justify his actions.

A guy who lives nearby has Tourette's. He's very twitchy and he barks. Doesn't swear or make Nazi salutes, though.

I've seen Tourette's make people shout obscenities, grunt, spit, snort, squeal, slap themselves, shake their leg, and do this weird thing where they would bring their shoulder up to their ear and go "NERK NERK NERK".

It's goddamned weird.

/Because free speech trumps the idea that something may be "offensive"


It's really not so much that it's offensive as that it's shameful. Much of what was formerly West Germany, wants to separate themselves from the Third Reich as much as possible. The people, the government, the private sector, etc... want to distance themselves from that period of their history. They don't deny the Nazis, but they really don't want anyone to associate the Nazis with the modern German state.

It would be kind of like people bringing up the most embarrassing and shameful thing(s) you have ever done to say you were right to do it/them. While you would rather that they just stfu.

However, from what I understand, many places in the former East Germany only pay lip service to such laws.

I once had a freshman kid in class that suffered from Tourette's. It was painful to watch.

CSB
He would blurt out the n-word about every 90 seconds. I was subbing in a special ed class and get the class started when another special ed teacher come rushing into the room saying, "Mr. Spaz, may I see you for a moment?" She starts telling me about the Tourette's kid, that he shows up infrequently, and how his mom is supposed to call before he comes to school so they are prepared but today she didn't. She was worried that as a sub I'd freak out. Just the opposite. I said, "Wow! This should be interesting." Back in class I take attendance and here it comes. "N****r!" All the kids are waiting for my reaction. By the end of class we were all having a laugh about it.

Unfortunately, the effort it takes to keep the vocalizations in is exhausting so that by about 2pm he is ready to go home. We let him use the phone to call his mom. As soon as he hears her voice he shouts, "biatch, slut, whore!" But then the little kid comes out and he says in a very tired voice, "Mom, I'm ready to go home." It was heartbreaking.

I walk him out to the front of the school to meet his mom. We hit the door and he sees another student, a black kid, and I thought he was going to explode trying not to should the n-word since seeing a black person would trigger a torrent of vocalizations. He literally dove through the open back window of the car so that the other kid wouldn't hear him. His attendance was poor because he was constantly in fear of getting beat up. I later learned that most of the kids including the black kids knew about his problem and were understanding.

During observations the next year I sat in a driver's ed class and the Tourette's kid was in there. He was on a better schedule of medicine and it was better controlled.His attendance was improving as a result. Even so, when the teacher reminded him to get back to his seat because it was reading time, he shouts "Fark reading time!" and then right away in a more normal and playful voice says, "Oh! I like reading time!" The whole class fell out of their seats laughing.
/CSB

It takes a pretty understanding teacher to deal with that and manage the class. As a teacher of psychology I find Tourette's to be a very interesting disorder. It manifests in many different ways but is difficult to treat. Have since had another student with Tourette's who constantly cleared her throat and grunted, but no swear words. Unfortunately, she had problems with some of our teachers who thought she was trying to disrupt class. I had to talk to some of them on her behalf to get them to lighten up. They were the idiot 25 and 30 year people who are a bunch of hard asses. Some people are not tolerant of the disorder and that's where the problems begin.

cuzsis: So...Tourette's caused him to make a nazi salute?

Really?


I'm dubious as well. Most physical tics in Tourette's is face, head and neck related. And those related to the extremities are usually symmetrical (hand flapping, etc). Not that it's outside the realm of possibility. Either the kid's just an idiot or The Daily Mail is just making shiat up again.

Since I can't find this story being carried by anyone else (all the other search results link back to them... well, at least the ones I was willing to follow up on, I'm NOT clicking on a Stormfront link) so you can guess which theory my money is on.
 
2012-07-28 01:29:52 AM  
You mean a black dude lashed out with no reserve or self control without knowing the whole story?

you don't say...
