In Farmington, Illinois, a trio of high school basketball players — identified as Jessica Settles, Taylor Wassi and Julie Broadway — have been suspended for two games for flashing the shocker hand gesture. These three girls unleashed the shocker while taking their team and senior photographs.

Scroll down to see 9 pictures of Julie Broadway, Taylor Wassi and Jessica Settles, including a shot of the supposedly offensive footage.

Personally, I think the school went overboard. This should have caused a chuckle. Instead, by suspending the players, they have blown this into a scandal. Any second now, lawyers will get involved. This is why you don’t make a mountain out of a molehill.

    LOL I don’t get how this is worthy of any suspension.

    Someone is going to have to tell me why I should be offended so I can take offense.

    What I have found out is the hand gesture symbolizes a woman taking care of herself. Two in the pinkie one in the stinky. As a coach I would have permanently removed these girls from my team regardless is they were seniors or not. They new exactly what they were doing.
