Fake street signs have popped up in the aftermath of the July 15 shooting of Justine Damond that warn people the police in this city are “easily startled.”

At least two of the fake orange street signs have been spotted that read: WARNING, TWIN CITIES POLICE EASILY STARTLED. The sign has an image of a police officer firing a gun in each of his hands with exclamatory accent marks above the stick figure’s head.

The signs were screwed into the metal posts and were underneath legitimate street signs. The signs were painstakingly made, according to the TV station KARE. They were made of metal and appeared to have been professionally painted.

The road department took down the signs sometime Monday, KARE TV reported.

Joe Morino brought a friend to see the sign in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.

“There’s a side of truth to the sign,” Morino told the newspaper while taking a picture of the sign. “That tells you there is something wrong with the system.”

Derek Traxler was at a local bar in Minneapolis and said he had seen the signs on social media.

Minneapolis Police had no comment about the signs
