You completely missed the point of what I was pointing out, probably on a rush to shoot down what I was saying and use your favorite smiley().

In the picture of Jamiel wearing the bandana, he is throwing a Blood gang sign. Among other pictures.
When pictures like that appeared, his family said he wasn't throwing gang signs, but instead the "Hang Loose" sign which is part of SURF culture. They tried to claim another sign was a Star Trek sign.

This


is not this.






While I don't know them, I can understand the pain of losing someone they love to somethign really stupid.
But to use this incident to increase Black-Brown tensions, and help the Anti-Illegal groups portray all illegals murderers like Espinoza is WRONG.

They don't want their son to be seen as a gangbanger by the country after his death, and who can blame them?
But they shouldnt be letting certain groups use his likeness for their agendas.

I didn't realize is my favorite smiley. I'll have to occasionally switch. How's this?
