'Kill All Cops' Sign Up In NC For Over A Month And Nobody Knows Who Put It There

Nobody knows who posted a hateful, anti-police sign in the community of Vass, North Carolina.

Vass, NC – A flag with the message “Kill All Cops” has appeared in a small North Carolina town with less than 1,000 residents.

Neighbors who live nearby told WRAL-TV that the sign has been up for at least a month, and many are not happy about it because they don’t want anyone to perceive the message as coming from their community.

The hateful anti-police message was painted in red, white, and blue on top of a yellow-line flag.

A flag with a yellow line generally represents dispatchers, but it has also been used by security guards, loss prevention agents, and tow truck drivers.

The hand-painted sign was set back on a property located on a rural road, with posted signs that said “private property, no trespassing.”

WRAL tried to find out who owned the property on which the threatening sign was posted, but were not successful. Nobody answered the door at the home adjacent to the sign.

Sandy Paula lives in that area but had not seen the sign. She was outraged when she learned about it, according to WRAL.

“Right away, it infuriates me because, first of all, it looks like, in a way, it’s speaking for everybody in the neighborhood and I don’t feel that way,” Paula said.

Chris Smith, another neighbor who has an American flag in his yard, told WRAL he wasn’t happy about the sign but recognized the person’s right to post it.

“It’s freedom of speech. I don’t agree with it. I, as they say, back the blue,” Smith said.

Other neighbors didn’t think it was appropriate.

“I just don’t really know who would do that,” neighbor Ingrid Bullen told WRAL. “I don’t know who would do that over there. It just makes me wonder.”

Authorities in Moore County told WRAL they were aware of the sign posted in the little town located about 100 miles east of Charlotte.

Sad commentary on whoever posted and placed the sign, but one thing is for certain, you can bet it's a liberal.

Total disrespect towards law enforcement.

The name of the property owner will be at the courthouse and accessable online.

I think that Blue Lives Matter, so I have to disagree with the sign. We need to improve our police in cases where they are lacking -- not kill them. That was the mistake Christopher Dorner made.

It's on private property, and they can't track down the owner. Probably under an LLC.

While I find it offensive, it’s protected speech under the 1st Amendment.

Could possibly be an indicator of anarco-cspatilists. They utilize black and yellow for thei colors, and might have thought to use that as a parody of the blue lives matter flag.

That’s just speculation. But they’re most likely white right leaning anarchists of the McVeigh variety.

But then again again, the cheap stenciled spray paint style might indicate a failed art graduate turned activist. Idk. Whoever it is, it’s clear that they’re unemployed.

@Heezels you guessed it on the employment! What bothers me is the fact that in a town of 1000 people no one knows who lives there. You've got someone that's a complete unknown in a place where everyone not only knows everyone else they're probably related. That doesn't happen unless this guy (generically but could be a woman) has totally gone off the grid. And his first communique to his neighbors is this sign. Does anyone else hear the dueling banjos?!

Protected speech, I do not think so!

To me it’s domestic terrorism and a threat to the law enforcement in the area. It doesn’t say I hate the police, or don’t obey the Police it says kill the police. I would take the trespass charge and any other charges and tear it down. As a mom and aunt of law enforcement I take it as a threat. The anti police activists don’t hesitate at tearing down or bashing anyone and anything supporting law enforcement. That’s my 2 cents.

The threatening of anyone is not protected speech. So why has not the local prosecutors done something about it? Most likely because they are to scared of the aclu or some other POS leftist or liberal group suing them. And just because it does not specifically say a name, it does identify who they want killed.

I agree, it's offensive but it's not protected by the 1st amendment!! Any speech that is threatening bodily harm or death is a crime!! Some speech has repercussions!!

I'd risk the arrest and take a gallon of black paint and fix the sign.

Surely there is a lawful reason to take this down!

A paint ball gun and a hundred or so balls should do the trick, without any trespassing necessary. Somebody truly needs to get some balls here!
