34 West Virginia correctional cadets fired for Nazi salute photo

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice Monday approved the firing of all the 34 prison guard trainees who were seen making a Nazi salute in a class photograph that was made public earlier this month. In addition, three staff members are also slated for termination. Four other academy instructors have been recommended for suspension without pay for failing to report the photo.

Retarded reason to fire people. Retarded and idiotic thing to complain about. Retarded SJWs.

"Hail Byrd" huh? Interesting as Byrd is the longest serving person in the US Congress https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Byrd He did have a mixed record on racial topics, but seems like he might have changed his mind over the years. Don't know, don't want to have that debate. The "hail" part is in poor taste for sure, but doesn't seem like anyone should have been fired over it. Sending them to many hours of sensitivity training seems like more of a solution/punishment in this case.

Jeez firing them all seems a bit extreme. Then there are all those tax dollars you just wasted training them only to fire them for doing something stupid and taking a photo of it.

was Byrd a Nazi? No...so why are they getting fired? Because stupid and arrogant people decide what other people mean with their words and actions?

The Governor diid not go far enough. He should have ordered training on the subject for the entire states corrections and law enforcement apparatus at a bare minimum.

Given guards have to deal with prison gangs n white nationalist gangs are often bred in prisons as are others like ms13. It's rather a no Brainer...what if the class all put out black gang hand gestures... Yep want them fired too... Or Latino gang gestures.. Yep fire all their asses... Prison is dangerous enuff work environment without adding to existing corruptions n gang violence... Folks want to work n go home.. Safe to their families
