NYPD removes 'Big Brother' ads near Occupy protest site
City workers fanned out across lower Manhattan to quickly investigate and remove a series of fake NYPD "public service" ads depicting the police force as drone-deploying Big Brother that someone installed in bus shelters.
The bright blue signs which were first spotted Tuesday morning near Whitehall and Waters Sts. but later were discovered in DUMBO, Brooklyn feature NYPD logos.
One pictures a drone dropping a bomb on a family.
"DRONES", the sign reads. "Protection when you least expect it."
Another sign nearby shows a crowd of people marching in business attire with surveillance cameras and two drones one firing missiles hovering above.
At the top of the poster is an image of Mayor Bloomberg with the misspelled phrase: "Always Wathching."
It was not immediately clear who posted the signs, which also bear a fake stamp from the Ad Council, a non-partisan public service group. NYPD investigators were dusting the bus shelters for prints.
NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said, "(It) appears to be NYPD critics subjecting us to a droll attack."
This is on issue that leftists and conservatives and everyone else should join together on.
They're nice and big too.
Is this before or after meeting with Ahmadinejad?
I’m with you on this one - if the left is against this - fine. Count me in...
Obama was referring to the Occupy movement, which failed.
