Bad taste, certainly. A bad joke, most likely. A crime, not suppose to be. Consequences, definitely.

Pretty stupid on their part posing in front of a bullet ridden sign with firearms. The implication is that they vandalized the sign themselves. Does it rise to criminal? Maybe vandalism? It does not say anywhere that they shot up the sign so I am going with they simply posed for a photo as some kind of stupid prank.

On a side note. I don't get why folks are vandalizing the sign to begin with. Doing this does come across as racist in my opinion.

Yes. Very racist. Very inappropriate. Nothing good can come out of it.

Quite frankly, it is a disgusting display considering the sign is to memorialize a young child who was brutally killed. It makes me wonder what the heck is wrong with people who do these things.

If the students shot the sign, it's criminal and stupid.
If the students posed in front of the already shot sign with their firearms, it's just stupid.

Regardless, stupid people keep racial strife going by picking at the wounds.

Celebrating the death of any innocent is awful, but celebrating the death of a 14 year old kid whose crime was being black is even worse.

Ole Miss doesn't need students like that. I wish that I were surprised that Kappa Alpha is involved.

The article's title is misleading regarding a civil rights investigation. Buried near the bottom, the article states:
FBI told police it would not further investigate the incident because the photo did not pose a specific threat.

Same thinking here. Without any proof of wrong-doing, they have nothing to investigate. Selfies are not a crime.

However, non-LE institutions and individuals are free to make any knee-jerk reactions they please, from scoffing, rolling eyes to expulsion.

I don't have a dog in this fight. And as a youngster, I sure as heck did things that others disapproved of. Stupid? Distasteful? Offending? That's all in the eye of the beholder.

:iagree:

Sheila Jackson Lee
Maxine Waters
Ralph Northam
Sylvester Turner
Ilhan Abdullahi Omar
Stacey Abrams
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Rashida Tliab
Cory Booker
Elizabeth Warren
Julian Castro

Each of these adults has done far more to escalate racial strife in America than any college kids taking a selfie. When these so called "public servants" are stripped of their office, and personal fortunes built stirring the pot, then I may be able to gather some concern about college kids doing insensitive crap. Until then, public outrage over something like this is straining at gnats.
I believe the basic political division in this country is not between liberals and conservatives but between those who believe that they should have a say in the personal lives of strangers and those who do not.
