FAKE SIGNS WARN OF JIT­TERY PO­LICE

The Denver Post - - NATION & WORLD -

MINNEAPOLIS» The fa­tal shoot­ing of an Aus­tralian woman by a Minneapolis po­lice of­fi­cer has sparked the post­ing of at least two fake street signs warn­ing peo­ple of “eas­ily star­tled” of­fi­cers.

One sign was spot­ted in Minneapolis and an­other in St. Paul dur­ing the week­end.

The of­fi­cial-look­ing or­ange metal signs read: “WARN­ING: TWIN CITIES PO­LICE EAS­ILY STAR­TLED.” The signs have a pic­ture of an of­fi­cer with a gun in each raised hand, shoot­ing in dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions.

Jus­tine Da­mond was un­armed when she was killed be­hind her home on July 15, af­ter she called 911 to re­port a pos­si­ble rape.

The of­fi­cer who shot Da­mond has de­clined to be in­ter­viewed.
