    Sign language mistaken as gang signs.

    Raymond Keith McWain, 26, had just turned from Mountain View Drive onto Boniface Parkway when he noticed a truck with three men alongside his car. One of the truck occupants is deaf and mute. The deaf man was communicating with the other two in the truck through American Sign Language, a written police statement said.

    McWain thought the sign language gestures were some sort of slight or "disrespect" toward him, police said. So McWain began doing some gesturing of his own. He honked and cut in front of the truck before pulling into the Papa John's pizza store on Boniface, police said. The men in the truck followed.

    In the parking lot, McWain and the three men from the truck began pushing and shoving, police said. McWain's cousin, Daniel Harris, 20, who works at Papa John's, came out and began beating the deaf man as the deaf man's companions pummeled McWain.

    Multiple shots were fired from at least one gun.

    Some people are offended at anything.

    Now there will be PC speech for sign language as some signs are offensive.

    Just another "sign" of how stupid some people can be. If people's psyche is so low that someone not bowing down and kissing their feet is a slight, that shows that this fake "you are special" thing that they are teaching every kid now adays is NOT WORKING!!!
    Respect used to have to be EARNED. Now it's taught to every kid in school, and gives them a falsely inflated ego. Respect is no longer earned, it's handed out to everyone no matter how bad they are.
