The Orange County Register
Sheriff Don Barnes decries the wearing of the non-approved “Oathkeeper” patch.

Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes launched an investigation into a deputy who wore patches on his uniform associated with a right-wing paramilitary group – at a time when law enforcement is trying to defuse nationwide anger and frustration over police brutality.

In a press release Wednesday, June 3, Barnes said the symbols were not department-approved and are prohibited by policy. He said they also contradict the values of the sheriff’s department.

According to a press release from the Greater Los Angeles Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the deputy caught on video Tuesday at a protest in Costa Mesa wore a red, white and blue patch with the word “Oathkeeper” on it and the logo of the “Three Percenters.”



Sure it was a big surprise to Sheriff Barnes

1. We've lone known...

...that racist terrorists and groups like this had populated law enforcement. We shouldn't be surprised there is chaos in the streets based on this either.

Those who adorn their uniforms with non-approved patches be made to where a patch that says
I'am an idiot and too stupid to follow regulations please kick me in the BUTT!

4. We just see the stupid ones

The police and the military are very conservative. Neither of the jobs are sought out by most progressives.
