The man who discovered the items wrote he felt "sick to my stomach knowing that I walk to the home of one of the most racist people in Muskegon hiding behind his uniform."
The article makes it sound like "where there’s smoke, there’s fire", especially if it is all true. I remember once purchasing a WWII relic, a .32 cal Walther PPK and holster worn by a somewhat famous eastern front Nazi general. Beautiful condition and even the magazines were stamped with the pistol’s serial number. But it was also stamped with the Nazi symbol and nazi huelga bird. I decided it wasn’t worth keeping because of the risk of being accused of a sympathizer so I got rid of it. Same thing goes for cop’s gallows humor that we can be attracted to. Remember, what’s funny today won’t be funny tomorrow. If it feels good, don’t say it.
