The more and more society computerizes and integrates everything on to the Internet, the more and more opportunities for trolling there will be. This is another one of those examples.
An electronic road sign displayed an anti-Semitic message early Friday morning on a highway on the outskirts of Phoenix.
The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office received a call at 2:25 a.m. about an electronic road sign along Hunt Highway that read “Hail Hitler,” an incorrectly spelled reference to the Nazi salute.
The road sign was hacked by an unknown person and the words on the sign were changed, said Navideh Forghani, public information officer for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office.
Officers tried to turn off the sign, but it required a password and officers could not immediately reach the private company that owned the sign.
Forghani said police reached out to Pinal County’s Public Works department for help and they covered the sign to hide the message from others.
Pretty funny stuff. They couldn’t shut off the display because of password protections so they had to cover the sign up. Apparently the words “Hail Hitler” causes too much hurt feelings for people.
What a bunch of fags! lol
