There it was. A rather curious picture of a German SWAT team officer. He was wearing chain mail that looked like something out of the middle ages and the Knights of the Templar. The picture was so odd, I checked out SNOPEs that immediately labeled it “mostly false” even though, in the end, it was true. German police do not normally wear chain mail except “when they are heading into a situation that involves someone armed with a sharp stabbing or cutting weapon.” SNOPEs was careful to distance the wearing of such an item from an increase in Muslim refugee stabbings. This raised the question of how could something be mostly false when it was partially true. Political correctness came to mind.
