  • Punisher Symbol

    What are your thoughts on the Punisher symbol being used/associated with blue lives matter?

  • #2
    IMO it's right up there with affliction and grunt style... It lets everyone around you know just how TOUGH you really are and that you are NOT to be messed with.

      It's always reassuring when the offender that wants to fight me is completely decked out in MMA swag- it seems like the more MMA stuff they're wearing, the less they actually know about fighting.

        Just as the Confederate battle flag is controversial, so too, but not even on the same level, is the punisher symbol. Personally, I have nothing against it, but I wouldn't want to sport the symbol on anything that would be associated with my duty gear. I can see a defense attorney running wild in court with the fact that I had a punisher tattoo, a punisher patch on my duty bag, a punisher sticker on my seat organizer, etc.

        We just can't be perceived as 'punishers' in this line of work, especially in this day and time, but I would have proudly sported all of the above if I was still in the USMC where killing people and breaking things was the order of the day. Also, I never found it appealing to associate myself with such things, not because they were controversial, but because I just never had the interest.

              Now THAT'S epically stupid...even for a southern town of less than 2,000 people, a town with a per capita income of $13,682 a year.

            We are keepers of the peace, not punishers. An attorney would shred you over it.

              That symbol would make more sense on a judge's gavel.

                An officer in a neighboring agency killed a guy in an OIS. The defense atty tried to get the officer's tattoo entered as evidence of bias intention. The motion was dismissed, but it was still put out there for public consumption.

                Personally, not a fan.

                  I've always wanted to wear an AARP T-shirt under my vest, so that if some young thug gives me the "take off your badge and gun" challenge to fight, I could strip down to my T-shirt and then ask them how it's gonna look to all their peers, if this doesn't end the way that they'd hoped?

                    As many have already said, it's a provocative symbol I wouldn't want a lawyer bringing up in court. Leave it off your duty gear. Best to leave it off your personal stuff too. Even if you were justified, if you get into an off-duty incident and were decked out in Punisher attire, the media is going to have a field day. We're not Punishers, we're Protectors.

                      These “rules” only seem to apply to people that are not a part of the protected class. If you are not the right color when you defend yourself and the aggressor is a card carrying member of the protected class you will immediately be branded as racist. Now if a Muslim commits acts of violence with a vehicle or firearm with multiple fatalities while screaming Allahu Akbar the media is quick to remind us not to jump to any conclusions. This country is so screwed.

                    IMO, it's kind of douchy. But I also think it's lame walking around in Blue line attire and 5.11s on your day off. Buffs will be buffs

                      So now Marvel fans are somehow racists? Or is it just LEOs that are Marvel fans are racists? It’s getting hard to keep track of what is PC acceptable attire.

                        I wouldn't put on anything police related. IMO people are getting too worked up over a fictional character symbol. There's more important stuff to worry about.
