Well, not our cops. But up in San Jose they take political sign theft seriously. That’s why the police and fire unions have offered up ten grand for information leading to the capture and prosecution of some local sign stealers. You can read all about it on CNBC. Those guys up in San Jose sure do value free speech.
But back to Fullerton and the case(s) of the missing Bad Chi and No McKinley signs…
Our friends at the Fullerton PD have been provided with plenty of clear photographic evidence of criminal activity, free of charge. We even did all of the legwork for them: following the getaway van back to headquarters, ID’ing one of the suspects, and making contact with all of the eye-witnesses. As far as I can tell, all that’s left is a little bit of paper work and a call to the District Attorney’s office to make sure that the perps aren’t already on parole.
So three weeks have gone by and the election is now behind us. And what do we have to show for our crime-fighting efforts?
An “out of office” email from the detective working on our case.
Ouch, that hurts! Oh well, take your time officer. Any job worth doing is worth doing right.
