    West Virginia prison guard trainees suspended over Nazi salute photo

    West Virginia prison guard trainees suspended over Nazi salute photo | US news | The Guardian

    Governor Jim Justice condemned the image and ordered those involved to be fired

    After a photo surfaced of West Virginia correction officer trainees giving what appears to be the Nazi salute, state officials quickly suspended some employees and the governor ordered the firing of those involved.

    The image, showing more than two dozen trainees with their arms raised and faces blurred, was released on Thursday by the West Virginia department of military affairs and public safety.

    A group giving the Nazi salute is as protected by the 1stA. as shouting fire in a crowded movie theater is.

    What is this idiotic infatuation with the Nazis?

    They might as well piss on the graves of American military members of World War II who died fighting the Nazis.

    I thought maybe there were 4 or 5 morons but it is the whole class. What the hell.

    A group giving the Nazi salute endangers others' lives?

    I think authority figures like prison guards are expected to have 'good order & discipline.' Nazi salutes are neither.

    Yeah but the point is that the governor swore to the Constitution.

    I don't care if he swore on a stack of Bibles. The Constitution has nothing to do with 'good order & discipline.' Check this: Principles of Professional Conduct | CorrectionalOfficer.org

    Correctional officers adhere to a code of ethics and professional conduct, which is a set of standards pertaining to morals and the effective discharge of duties. There is no uniform text for the code, with each jurisdiction or facility allowed to craft its own. However, the overarching goal is to administer justice with integrity, and within the bounds of the law. The code serves as the basis of policies and directives, rules and regulations, protocols and procedures, all of which are observed and undertaken in relation to facility management and operations. It embodies such core values as discipline, judiciousness, truthfulness, vigilance, respect for human rights, and sense of responsibility.

    Then the governor didn't have to be involved. He can condemn this all he wants but to order them fired for exercising their free speech?
