Offensive' Chicago posters compare homeless to rats

Recommended Posts

CHICAGO, April 23 (UPI) -- Chicago officials said crews have been ordered to take down "offensive" signs likening homeless people to rats with a play on the city's anti-rat posters.

The signs, spotted in the Bucktown neighborhood and elsewhere on the North Side, are created in the style of the city's "Target: Rats" signs, but instead read, "Target: Bums."

Chicago's Department of Streets & Sanitation said crews have been ordered to take down the "offensive" signs whenever they spot one and 32nd district Alderman Scott Waguespack said his staff is also on the lookout for the signs.

The posters describe homeless people as "indigent vermin" and offer advice on how to deal with them.

Shouldn't be too difficult for any halfway intelligent detective to find the source of those poly-coated, card-stock printed signs.  

Which means the Chicago PD will NEVER FIND the guilty party.
