    Default Iím at a loss for words.

    Sad story, with a successful ending: sort of. A New Jersey State Patrolman walked out of a hospital where he was being cared for, and disappeared. After an extensive search, he was found unharmed. Good. Hope heís OK. But Ö

    Why would the New Jersey State Patrol employ a man who has the motto of the Hitler Youth tattooed on his neck?

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Because, some of those that work forces . . . are the same that burn crosses.
    In the US this perverted idea of ďblood and soilĒ over ďconstitutional principlesĒ is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    Given the level of ignorance these days, he probably thinks it's some macho American thing.

    The Nazi's weren't all bad. There were some good people on both sides.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    Our armed forces (USA) hire consultants that vet photos of prospective recruit's tats, advising as to whether they're gang-, mob-, yakuza-, klan-, etc.-related. And they hire people fluent in Cyrillic, Chinese, Japanese and other ideography.

    Those tats would like likely end his enlistment prospects.

    OTOH (and I really hesitate to defend this guy at all) getting a tattoo when you're young and stupid that you regret later is so common as to be stereotypical. I haven't the slightest idea if that's true in this case.

    I had that thought.
    "Banning books in spite of the 1st amendment, but refusing to regulate guns in spite of "well regulated militia' being in the 2nd amendment makes no sense. Can't think of anyone ever shot by a book

    Young and stupid might be getting a tattoo of your then girlfriend's name, "Mom", or a flaming skull, or the logo of your favorite beer, or even an 8 Ball.

    "Blood and Honor" "88", a "Swastika, or similar isn't stupid, it's a life choice and an all-in commitment. There is also tattoo removal options once the stupid is outgrown and obviously not availed here.

    Tom Morello's words at #4 are spot on.

    And while we examine his fitness of mind to serve, let's also consider his tat from the vantage of those he's pledging to protect. How does that neck ring make them feel? Are they going to feel confident that he's on the scene to respect and protect them - or will he instill fear in the populace?

    Oh, it's definitely stupid. But you're probably right. If it were just youthful idiocy, you'd think the police would have required that it be removed or modified before hiring him

    It's not a typical American problem though.
    The Police forces seem to attract a lot of these people on every continent.

    I may be old fashioned but I regard any cop with tattoos with somewhat less confidence.

    There was a piece on NPR last week about California gangs. No news news there regarding gang prevalence on the streets and in prisons . But very interesting part about prison guard gangs and law enforcement gangs. But same MO. They preyed on the weaker ones and if you didn't join or reported something, well a person didn't get very far...
