A Sign of the Times?

Friday, April 20, 2007

Before you grab your pitchforks and torches, let me tell you this sign has been taken down. That's the good news. The bad news is that this sign was in place for a number of weeks in East Palo Alto, California. In my opinion, it should never have been allowed--as written--in the first place. And here's why:
If the East Palo Alto police had worded the sign to read, "For info on criminals with guns" I wouldn't have a problem with it. But the way it's worded causes the average person to think merely possessing a gun is now a criminal act. For the police department to make such a boneheaded blunder is inexcusable. Thank goodness a large surge of local opposition to this sign's presence was enough to get it taken down.
