    Since when has the 3%ers been a militia group? It’s like calling the tea party a organized group.

    He is still stupid for having anything on his car in this day and age. I’m surprised they haven’t outlawed the blue line yet.

    Stupidity on the officer's part has nothing to do with it. It all stemmed from a "victim class" business owner being offended by stickers on an officer's personal vehicle. Her two "sources" are also proven to be prejudiced against any organization that stands for conservative ideals and more than likely a "karen" who, because she is a "victim minority" threatened to create a fuss and the governing council in that city does not have backbone enough to stand up for all people's rights and not give special consideration to a class of people that are endlessly claiming oppression. Sounds racist to me and I hope the officer challenges his dismissal and files a civil rights grievance against the business owner for discrimination

    Whether it's a hat, t-shirt or bumper sticker, I don't advertise certain opinions and views for several reasons. First and foremost it violates my Grey Man philosophy

    Unfortunately he is unlikely to prevail if he does.

    If the stickers were simply on his pov and someone complained because they knew he was an officer. That would be one thing.
    But here his POV is parked in the dept. Parking lot clearly visible to the public.

    SCOTUS has routinely ruled that public employees first amendment rights can indeed be curtailed if their speech can be perceived to cause a lack of trust towards their dept. By the public.

    That is why it is stupid to put controversial things on your POV, your property, or clothing when you are a cop.

    When you are a cop you already have a target on your back, all the more reason to be smart and not provide the cop haters with ammo to use against you.

    If you want to parade your political ideas around town, then you're better off selling shoes than being a cop. Never advertise your political ideas in a way that can be traced back to you. sooner or later, it will be used against you.

    I recently heard the narrative that 3%ers “are associated with white nationalists and militias”.

    Associated is a very broad word.

    I bet if he had a BLM decal he would have been just fine.

    Probably would have gotten a letter of commendation and a promotion.

    "Molon Labe" is a bad thing, Chief? It's on the back of an FBI SWAT t-shirt in my dresser.

    I believe from memory that a department did outlaw the thin blue line on masks worn by officers.

    Officer taking a late night photo with 3%'ers guarding a gun store and making an OK sign results in investigation also. Police can only take photos if they kneel in submission to the no-justice-no-peace-need-a-tv crowd. Anything else endangers your job.

    Don't put anything like that on your car it just invites the leftist losers to trash your car. No NRA stickers, No Trump/Pence stickers, no pro cop or Military stickers. But I will put said stickers on liberal bumpers.
