U.S. school district decries photo of students appearing to give Nazi salute

Apparent Nazi Salute In US High School Prom Photo Prompts Outrage

Jordan Blue, one of the students in the photo who is abstaining from giving the anti-Semitic salute, spoke to Suzdaltsev concerning the photo.

A Wisconsin school district is investigating a photo showing a group of high school boys apparently making the Nazi salute. "And for that symbol to be posed in a photo it's very disrespectful".

Mueller confirmed that the image includes students from her school district "who appear to be making extremely inappropriate gestures", yet said that it "was not taken on school property or at a school-sponsored event".

One of the students, however, did not take part in the apparent salute. Some were waving high, some were raising their hand high, some were looking around not sure what to do.

What did the photographer have to say?

Gust tells The Associated Press that the boys' arms were extended in various stages of being raised when the shot was taken.

One of the students in the photo also rejected the suggestion that the gestures were anything but a Nazi salute. The image was originally posted to a photographer's website with other photos from the school's junior prom.

He has since removed the photos and posted a freaky message in its place, saying: 'Due (to) malevolent behavior on the part of some in society; this page has been modified. The internet can be a wonderful tool but for some there is an overwhelming urge to destroy.

'The destruction may not be physical but instead it can be bullying that is intellectual or emotional.

Gust had posted the photo to his photography business website, Wheel Memories, after it was taken in May.

"When I watch a president heckle reporters for doing their job, or pick on a nationality who is trying to seek a better life in our country and calling them names and pointing out how bad they are, when I see a president mimic and make fun of someone who's disabled, I have a problem with that", Erpenbach said. "YOU ARE JERKS! Grow up!"

"The photo has shaken to the core my personal belief of the process that we as a community and as a school district have made to be tolerant, inclusive, accepting and admitting of all of those who are different from ourselves", he added.

"If the gesture is what it appears to be, the district will pursue any and all available and appropriate actions, including legal, to address the issue", district Superintendent Lori Mueller said in a letter to parents Monday.

"The school district is investigating this situation and is working with parents, staff and local authorities", she said in a statement.

'I couldn't leave the photo as it was taken within five seconds.

Democratic Governor-elect Tony Evers said the photo has "no place in Wisconsin", the station reported. He says he will be in contact with Baraboo school officials and "intolerance and bigotry must never be tolerated, in our schools or anywhere else".

The Baraboo Police Department said it was assisting with the district's investigation. "This is why every single day we work hard to educate". I truly & firmly believe we need to make a change to this disgusting act, it needs to stop.
