‘More Dead Cops’ Banner Found Hanging on Overpass in NY
A banner reading “More Dead Cops” was found hanging from an overpass on a highway near Albany, New York, over the weekend.
“They put the sign on the overpass, but it’s insignificant. The police are resilient,” he said.
Members of the community said it’s dangerous to have anti-police rhetoric out there.
“It’s absolute horror,” area man Johnathan Falk said. “We’re talking about people who put their lives on the line every day for strangers for not a lot of money, and they’re getting so disrespected. It’s terrible.”
Police said they are “looking into the matter.”
