This shows just how out control this crap has gotten. I can see it now, the next time a Republican is seen drinking a tinnie of ice tea, the Libbos are going to start screaming that drinking ice tea in public is racist.

If you have to ask, then it obviously a waste of time to explain it to you, because you will never get it.

I have to ask, too. What the hell are you talking about? You see nothing wrong with his doing that? The guy's a complete moron. Sensitivity classes and a prescription for dumb in his future.

If you could simply explain that would be nice...

The dude specifically did it to make a point. His point-making was not appreciated and he will be wrist-slapped accordingly.

If you don't want your wrist slapped, don't use the workplace to try to teach others a lesson.

This is nothing more than another example of political correctness run amuck.

No, if it had run amok he would've been fired or otherwise disgraced. He's getting his wrist slapped, which is exactly what he deserved for his unprofessional behavior.

Law enforcement officers should not be in the business of mocking dead teens. Period. If you can't understand the potential ramifications in the form of diminished public trust and respect, you shouldn't be in law enforcement.

No, the real problem is that your statement can't be explained.
