Yes the swastika has been know as a hate and death symbol, but it is just a symbol! It is not the only symbol that is being bannished, but also the paisley bandanna and flaging in schools. If you do the research you will find that many symbols have a begining of a story and a history behind them. The swastika is a stolen symbol from the Hindus,and it was turned into a symbol of war.
If we were to ban out that symbol what is next? Because our children are getting picked at over this stupid "Commonly Considered Gang Material" rule in our schools, kids are getting picked at over petty crap, like PJ Pants,Beany Caps, shorts, socks, etc etc. NFL is also commonly used among gangs. Are we to ban the NFL out of our schools? How about the American flag because that flag is also a symbol of war and death and slavery to many souls!! The local government removed the Giant cross that was atop the Skinners Buett in Eugene Oregon. Symbols remind us of wars and family fueds already fought, cutting down or erasing the symbols does not stop the ignorance!! Your thoughts?

Seems to me that a hate group displaying a symbol would make it easier for law enforcement to keep an eye on them.

If symbols are banned, law enforcement would find itself dealing with invisible enemies with no way to prove they exist and no way to determine where and who they are.
