Deathfrogg: Ima4nic8or: After reading the article I was initially in full agreement with the ACLU that an horrible injustice had been done and that the players should be immediately reinstated but after I looked at the image again I am not so sure.  There is nothing in any of those hand gestures that looks even remotely like a three.  The guy on the right is making no hand gestures that I can see.  The guy in the middle is clearly gesturing but I see two twos or a four, or a set of guns.  I cant really know what the gesture meant but it sure as hell isn't a three.  I cant tell what gesture of the dude on the left could possibly mean but I sure don't see any threes.  Any normal rational person who wants to convey a three with a hand gesture is going to do it as shown in Abhorrent1's post above.  I don't know the intent of their gestures and am therefore inclined to trust the cops on this one.

Since when is merely flashing a hand signal a crime?

Probably a typo, bu I would just like to point out that would be a great name for a racist offshoot of the Pottery Barn.

Molavian: Yeah, totally not gang-related at all.


Thank you Ricardo the Romero for making the statement of which has the obviousness. The people who did the thinking of this as the gang signs are also those upon which will be at the cross burning and picnicking event on the evening of this. LAUGHTER OL of course I am doing the referencing to the Ku Klacks Kiln.

Lee451: It looks as if they are each making a different "3 point" gesture but I know nothing about basketball.


It involves throwing a leather ball through an iron hoop, but that's not important now.

Olo Manolo: So they make a sign that is acknowledged as a gang sign, the school acts within policy and investigates, then apologizes and kisses ass.. but they are still dirty racists??

Geez, What am I thinking?? they should totally allow suspected gang related activity in school without question...


Well, they are gang signs.  From the nefarious Miami Heat, Houston Rockets, and Milwaukee Bucks gangs.

That's meow's shtick.

And it stopped being funny ages ago. Metaroleplaying on the internet isn't clever, but I'm also aware he does it as a form of light trolling/lulz.


Says the guy whose fark handle is based on a meme based on a slapfight some asshole had with some biatch on the Internet.

That's literally what suspicion is.

Day to day, you find yourself suspicious of everything that is possible?

No, and that's not what he said.


You always feel like, somebody's watching you... and you have no privacy?

Wo-ooah.

black__hippie: I'm not suspicious. Just saying its possible.


It's also possible that this kid is a shapeshifting alien from the Horsehead nebula giving the invasion signal to his fleet in orbit.

black__hippie: cameroncrazy1984: black__hippie: cameroncrazy1984: black__hippie: But when you put the last 3 fingers in a straight line, turn your hand around in a non traditional way, and put the sign close to your chest, you are inviting people to draw conclusions.

The conclusion that HOLY COW I MADE A THREE POINTER?

I mean...context matters, man.

Did he just make a 3 before the picture was taken?

I bet he doesn't celebrate his 3's like he gestures in the picture.

I love how you're seriously continuing to be suspicious about this. It totally makes it better for you.

I'm not suspicious. Just saying its possible.

Wanna know how I know you're racist?

Because I don't kowtow, I am a racist. Nice to know we've got a dialogue going

Sheboygan sounds like one of those towns that still has a 19th-century law on the books banning black people from walking the streets after dark, but never got around to repealing it because it never comes up.

The county government should send the entire Sheboygan Falls police department, along with the school board, on a week-long fact-finding mission to South Central L.A.

A walking tour of Compton oughta give them an idea of what gang activity is.

I wonder if there is an actual sign for 'gang' in international sign language.  So it's a literal gang sign but not really a gang-gang sign. I don't know where I am going with this.

I think you missed the part where it isn't a gang sign. I'm also thinking you don't watch a lot of basketball.

Somehow A cop from Sheboygan is not the most reliable expert on gang activity.
