Citizens of Minnesota have found a hilariously innovative way to mock police.
At least two fake street signs with the message, “Warning: Twin Cities police easily startled,” were posted Sunday in Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN, showing an international symbol for a police officer shooting his weapon in random and dangerous directions.

The signs—which are also popping up all over social media—are in response to the recent police shooting death of Justine Damond and also referencing the fatal police shooting of Philando Castile, where the officer was recently acquitted of charges after murdering the man during a traffic stop.
At least two such signs were posted today, one in St. Paul one in Mpls. DM me if more info or sightings. pic.twitter.com/fBQHlGF5ud

While the sign may be accurate and a good warning for citizens, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported the signs have been taken down by each of the cities.
