Police easily startled signs go up after Justine Diamond shooting.

Joe Morino brought an incredulous friend to see the orange street sign he just spotted in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis.

The official-looking metal sign read: “WARNING: TWIN CITIES POLICE EASILY STARTLED.” It featured a graphic silhouette of a police officer, a gun in each raised hand, shooting in both directions.

“There’s a side of truth to the sign,” Morino said after snapping a picture of it. “That tells you there is something wrong with the system.”

The sign, which was still up at 8 p.m. Sunday, was one of at least two seen in the Twin Cities Sunday.

A photo of the same sign, reportedly near the corner of Snelling and University avenues in St. Paul, circulated Sunday on social media. A Facebook post said that sign later was removed.

Each was screwed into upright metal posts in the same fashion as conventional street signs.

The signs reference the killing of Justine Damond just over a week ago by Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor. Noor’s partner, Matthew Harrity, told the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension that he heard a loud sound right before Noor fired his gun, hitting Damond.

I continue to marvel at the reaction from the govt, police supporters, anti-police shooting groups and even normal citizens to this incident.

The reaction from the dept was immediate.  The Chief said that Diamond did not need to die.  Even though the Chief said the right thing the Mayor still demanded "retirement" as penance for what crime I still can't figure. Police supporters have remained silent.  Anti-police shooting groups have done the same.

Amazing but enlightening.

It's like others have said.  People are tired and fussing doesn't change things. What will?  If taxation could cause a revolution early in our nation's history then how does that compare to govt surveillance,  unfair taxation, unwanted regulation on all levels of human activity, a burdensome social atmosphere that forces abstract and unbelievable fantasy of certain individuals onto the rest of us and a continuous war footing designed not to protect our nation but the interests of monied individuals (not to mention a whole lot more)?

The silence is what's worrisome.  No one is bitching anymore.  I wonder why?
