Do you think this meme is appropriate for a Kootenai County Deputy Prosecutor to be sharing approvingly? Discuss amongst yourself

As a General Rule, Avoid Racist Genocide Jokes

Tensions are pretty high right now between law enforcement officers and black citizens.

Lest you think he didn't understand both sides, he described the Black Lives Matter movement as having "a gang mentality." [CDA Press]
