Any pics of someone doing the gang signs they were allegedly giving?

It was black kids so it had to be gang signs.

Yeah. Right.

What dingalings some putative adults with authority turn themselves into.

"some students did not feel safe"... and that drives all before it

just like some people don't feel safe because of their own hang-ups and they want to determin what I can do so they don't get scared

I don't care what you do as long as you go through a back ground check. . .

The link is a video. their doing the 3 sign; a reference to a 3 shot from the 3 point line I think, plus their black.

The other sign was the one I was curious about as the 3 sign was exlplained. Either way, you can't ask kids for a "fun" pose and then punish them for doing it. If it was a blatantly offensive gesture then it would never have been published. If it's obscure enough that no one in the chain of permission and approval saw any issue then there can't be a whole lot wrong.

If the gang issue is that much of a problem in his school system he is certainly taking the wrong approach here.
