Working Towards the Fuehrer

Here's the story of a policeman who would have done very well in Germany in say, 1934:

The Denver Police Department is investigating a sergeant who allegedly threatened to arrest the 26-year-old for displaying the bumper sticker, which read ''F--- Bush.''

Bates said she was told by the sergeant Tuesday that her bumper sticker was illegal because it was profane. She said he told her he'd arrest her if she didn't remove it.

But City Attorney Cole Finegan said he doesn't believe there's any city ordinance against displaying a profane bumper sticker.

That's a pretty mild telling of the story. There's more: turns out that someone else was Working Towards the Fuehrer too:

The ''F--- Bush'' bumper sticker on 26-year-old Shasta Bates' pickup truck offended a shopping center patron who saw it Monday on Bate's parked vehicle and flagged down Sgt. Michael Karasek, who was patrolling the area.

''He (Karasek) told her that this was a warning and that the next time he saw her truck, she was going to be arrested if she didn't remove the sticker,'' said 25-year-old Alinna Figueroa, assistant manager of a store at the shopping center where the officer confronted Bates.

Sweet! We have informers now too. Heil!
