Mistaken for gang signs?

*clicks link*

Yup. Not the first time, nor is it likely the last.

Too bad he didn't have a gun. he could have chased after the deaf guy and "stood his ground." Perfectly legal as long as he felt threatened.

This happened in L.A. some time back. (Compton?) When they caught the shooter, his comments were on the order of "She (the victim) shouldn't have been signing in our territory if she didn't want to get shot."

You are mistaken; the use of sign language justifies the use of deadly force against the signer in absolutely no state.

There is no statement from the attacker and simply witness speculation. Being attacked while signing is the same as being attacked while talking, except deaf people are somewhat more vulnerable due to lack of hearing. I have heard numerous stories which speculate confused symbols, but the majority of sign language and "stacking" is impossible to confuse. Not to say gangsters are known for rational and calm actions, but this certainly happens, just not in all situations where signing happened.

My Deaf-Blind friend was learning to sign. She was Oral Deaf - she had learned to lip-read and speak (like a drunken Scot, so understandable).

Most unfortunately for her, she made up a name-sign for her boss, and in the process accidentally called her boss a penis. Most fortunately though, her boss wasn't much in for stabbing.

If you didn't know it was sign language, you didn't know what "gang sign" was either. For all you know you started a gang war with a bigger gang than yours. Maybe you're bad at being in a gang.

This is why every deaf child, once identified at birth as such, needs to be immediately implanted with a cochlear implant regardless of any potential objections by the child's parents.

This miraculous Invention restores hearing to the deaf child, who can now receive a proper education and learn to speak and hear and function in today's society at large.

Had the victim been implanted, he would not have been using sign language at the time and thus would not have been mistaken as flashing gang signs and stabbed as a result.

Instead, with the cochlear implant, his slurred speech and inability to fully comprehend what was said to him would have resulted in the perpetrator assuming he was drunk and, as such, an "easy" victim. The perp would then rob and stab him instead of this tragic outcome.

Like I tell people, you can be hated without ever even saying a word. People will stab you just for standing in line, if they are impatient enough.

/and yes, other people will run to the defense of the stabber
//gangs only stab gangs, if you weren't in a gang you wouldn't have been stabbed by a gangster

When we were kids on a long road trip we would always pretend to be talking in sign language and then have it escalate to arguing in sign language when we passed other cars. The other day two guys in the car behind me were speaking in sign language and I kept staring at them trying to figure out if they were faking or not.

/my mom speaks sign language, she is a speech language pathologist.. I guess I see how some things could be mistaken for gang signs in the wrong context

Gangs only stab gangs? I see you are new to this planet.

I think the younger they had the cochlear implant the better their speech/hearing would be. Because if you were deaf from birth and then at 15 had a cochlear implant I am pretty sure your brain would already have re-assigned those nerves and you wouldn't really have the same hearing. One deaf girl I knew could have had a cochlear implant but didn't want one because noises scared her. I guess if the only noises you ever heard were super super loud ones like a train or sirens you wouldn't want to be able to hear.

The "T" sign is a pretty rude gesture where I come from. Milder than the finger, but you might still get your ass kicked, depending on the company.

So maybe the attacker understood sign language and the guy was saying mean things about him?

I learned how to spell in ASL for a Scuba diving course, but unfortunately I was signing in a way that indicates yelling. I'm not joking, I kinda bumped my hand forward with each letter, it's a hard habit to break for someone concentrating on simply remembering the right letter.

/I AM JUST TOO AWESOME

Who cares what they are signing. The point is that gangs like the latin kings do not have to recruit. They are breeding their own members.
