Vandalism is only a crime when it isn't the cops who are the vandals, I guess.
So, like every other crime they commit.

Weren't they thanking folks for the permit help on the original tweets?

Yes they were.

It must be one of those things Donnie does, where he "herebys" something, then the GOP faithful make it come true!

Oh for heaven's sake.
First they defaced the US flag to make their own gang flag. Then they take the name Blue Lives Matter from Black Lives Matter. Now they're trying to paint a police support mural on the street, like BLM. They can't do anything original.

I'm surprised they're not using black inmates to do the painting.

Can it really be illegal if the police are above the law?

If the BLM mural is legal, so should this.

I'm honestly really torn about this.

Part of me wants to call every one of these jackasses a bootlicking paint-huffer.

But another part of me thinks that "paint-huffing bootlicker" just sounds a little better.

These really are the times that try men's souls.

Of the many negative things coming out of police conduct, the highlighting of "Police Unions" being an issue is something that Fixed News and the GOP are likely to try to use to further cripple ALL workers' rights to organize.

Are you kidding, police unions are the one union the GOP doesn't antagonize.

I can't imagine why.

If this is legal, then so should be any other grafitti.

Your ignoring the lack of permit for this work is noted.

The BLM mural got permits.

These guys lied about theirs.

Weird, when I wrote "fark the police" with paint they called it graffiti

Fark these bootlicking authoritarian cop loving lemmings. Everything wrong with the police was on display in the Elijah McClain video. I wish no harm to any cop. But cops are hardly the helpless victims people are trying to make them out to be.

By the way, if you really want to see an eye opening documentary about law enforcement, go watch Immigration Nationon Netflix.

Around here, we are starting to see billboards that say "Thank you law enforcement. Paid for by your law abiding citizens."

Whose law abiding citizens. Mine? The police's? Do these people think the police own them?

I guess if you set all those billboards on fire, people would take it the wrong way. Tsk.

Not to mention all the traffic lines are painted over. I would think that is illegal on its own.

So none of the people that worked on that has ever seen a curve, a circle, or an arc?

Police and the military are the right wing's "identity politics" favored groups.

You ever hear a right winger complain about how liberals would never criticize Muslims or black people for fear of being racist? Well, they treat cops and military* the same way they portend that liberals treat Muslims and black people - sainted individuals that absolutely cannot be criticized no matter what.

*That only applies as long as the cops and military are doing the right wings bidding. The millisecond they perceive police as being agents of liberalism, they will gladly defund the police faster than any woke bleeding heart liberal would ever do.

And because I love to point it out: Look at the last letter--The "E".  Why, it looks like the outline of Minnesota!  That's weird.  Coincidence? I wonder if anything happened in Minnesota recently that made the police feel that they were being picked on?

The permits were about in process as the DACA rescinding.  I was amazed it went up so fast it was.  Turns out it was because they did no process.

I have to say I don't painting these "murals" in the streets is a good idea.

In six weeks your message (whatever it is)  is going to be covered in tire tracks footprints and motor oil.

If you want to get around the permit process you need to take over the area first and claim it for your own.
