    I was half way through my workout when i spotted a guy with dark sunglasses and a black mask wearing a BLM t shirt that said “**** 12” on the back of it. I dropped my weights and told him to change his shirt before I put him and his shirt in the dumpster outside, and that he was too big of a ***** to wear that shirt without his sunglasses on. Im sorry but I have zero patience for *******s like this anymore. I was shaking with anger. The guy said that he wont wear the shirt anymore to the gym owner after the hell broke lose. I dont understand how ANYONE could hate and want to kill police. DONT LET A FEW BAD APPLES RUIN THE BUNCH.

    Surprised the gym allowed the shirt at all, with that profanity.

    I would be speaking to the management about that.

    What does **** 12 mean? And tell how you almost got thrown out. Seems like there's a gap in the story.

    OP, If they almost threw you out for taking that position, maybe you need to find a new place.

    Good for you to call BS on that crap. Totally justified in my opinion.

    While I may not approve of what someone else may say, even if printed on clothing, I spent too many years protecting the rights of others to pretend I ought to be the arbiter of how they choose to practice freedom of speech and expression. (Even if someone else won't extend the same courtesy to me.) A right is a right.

    I won't go out of my way to force my thoughts on others, just because they may say something, wear emblazoned clothing or carry a sign. Now, if they happen to ask me what I think of the content of their speech or expression? Well, I believe they deserve to hear the truth. ;)

    Getting your butt kicked in a fight you started because you don’t like someone else’s t-shirt seems awfully juvenile.

    You'll have to go to the urban dictionary .com and look it up. I'm not allowed to post a link due to the profanity.
