Talk about sloppy police work, Vermont State Police have been driving around for years with decals that feature a cow with a large pig-shaped spot. The decals were ordered in 2009 from the Northwest State Correctional Facility, where an intrepid inmate altered the image.
Public Safety Commissioner Keith Flynn says he can see the humor but “If the person had used some of that creativeness, he or she would not have ended up inside.”
Not everyone is laughing though. Police Major Bill Sheets is quickly replacing the decals. “While some may find humor in the decal modifications, the joke unfortunately comes at the expense of the taxpayers,” Sheets said in a statement. It will cost $780 for the new decals, which Sheet says will be subject to more stringent quality control.
