Mark Shea:

My question is not "Why is somebody making Obama 'Joker" posters?"

My question is "Why are we living in a country where somebody who makes Obama 'Joker" posters is referred to as a 'suspect'?"

Yeah, yeah. Defacing property. Duly noted. And that is, of course, so very very different from the *thousands* of political scraps of paper, blues band ads, rock band ads, BUSHITLER cartoons and so forth that are plastered on fifty bazillion walls in fifty bazillion cities all over the world without any notice whatsoever by the MSM. Nobody is ever a "suspect" in the infamous "Indigo Girls at the Paramount, August 12th!" caper which left Seattle reeling from the crime wave of lesbian-folk-rock induced littering. But blaspheme the One and you are a "suspect".

The article Shea links contains the interesting line:

"City officials, meanwhile, are trying to determine what local crimes might be associated with the posting of the images on public and private properties."

Why? If the associated crime is not already obvious to these "officials", then why dig around to gin up charges?
