Dec 5 - DISTURBING photo by West Virginia prison guards leads to Mass Suspensions
 

 
You can see a full copy of the memo below:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WOWK/AP) — A photo of West Virginia corrections trainees doing a Nazi salute lead to some employees being suspended, and the governor has ordered some to be fired. The photo is the focus of a memo that state officials made public Thursday.

The letter, sent by West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety Cabinet Secretary Jeff Sandy to the agency’s Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation on Wednesday, doesn’t make clear what the image shows or how many employees have been suspended. You can see the photo above.

Sandy described the photo of Basic Training Class Number 18 as “distasteful, hurtful, disturbing, highly insensitive, and completely inappropriate.” He wrote that the picture “betrays the professionalism I have seen time and time again displayed and practiced by our brave correctional employees.”

Republican Gov. Jim Justice issued a statement Thursday condemning the photo and ordered the firing of those involved:

“I condemn the photo of Basic Training Class #18 in the strongest possible terms,” Gov. Justice said. “I have directed Secretary Jeff Sandy of the Dept. of Military Affairs and Public Safety to continue actively investigating this incident and I have ordered the termination of all those that are found to be involved in this conduct. This will not be tolerated on my watch – within the Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation – or within any agency of state government.”

House a*sistant Majority Leader Kayla Kessinger (R-Fayette) condemned the photo in the following statement:

I am shocked beyond words at this outrageous photo,” Delegate Kessinger said. “As someone who has worked to build bridges with our local Jewish community, I know how harmful and offensive horrible displays like this can be, and my heart breaks for my friends who will be deeply affected by this.

This photo is not West Virginia; these are not our values, and to both the local Jewish community, and the world audience that will unfortunately now see this, let me be clear: We condemn this ignorant, hateful display in the strongest terms possible.

I hope and trust Gov. Justice and Secretary Sandy will take swift action against those responsible for this reprehensible display, and extend my personal apologies on behalf of the state of West Virginia to those offended and affected by this. We are better than this.

Sandy has ordered all copies of the picture destroyed or taken out of circulation to prevent them from spreading. He said an investigation of the incident is ongoing.

I'm not even surprised

They shouldn't have edited the faces put. If they were proud enough to do it for a photo, expose them muthafukas

America is so weird to me now. Especially being out of it. I never understood why so many American whites even the ones with Germanic roots loved all the Nazi sh*t and Confederate sh*t, but call themselves patriots when those were the two biggest enemies of the USA and when war was going on they locked up the Japanese Americans, but not italian Americans or German Americans(well i get that part) but still from a logical standpoint America is fu*ked to the core man and makes no got damn sense, but most of us here came from it and i hope oneday we can really change it.

Hope the uncensored pic surfaces. Some things don't deserve a courtesy blur. Names need to be put to faces.

And this is why when I'm traveling between the North East and the South I stay on all major roads through WV (no backroad, avoid highway sh*t) and never stop anywhere but Beckley to take a piss. Was taught this at a young age by my grandad.

Made the mistake of getting lost in WV before GPS was the norm and saw so many Confederate flags on houses and pickups that I knew if my Navigator broke down for some reason my a*s was grass

Why do white supremacists stand behind the two flags that have k*lled the most white American men in history?

Like don't they realize their current conservative democratic ideology would make them mortal enemies of both Nazis and Confederates?

I remember one time in like 4th or 5th grade a white girl (blonde hair, blue eyes) who moved from Montana drew a swastika on the binding of my math book.

When I reported it (cuz my parents wasn’t paying for that sh*t) the teacher said I did it and took her side. That was the day I learned how consequenceless it must be to be white
