Inmate Adds Pig Image To Vermont Police Cruiser Decals

February 03, 2012  | 

How did an image of a pig—the infamous '60s-era epithet by protesters for police officers—wind up on a decal used on as many as 30 Vermont State Police cruisers?

State officials Thursday pointed to the failure of the quality assurance office within the Vermont Correctional Industries Print Shop in St. Albans to detect a prisoner-artist's addition made four years ago to the traditional state police logo. A spot on the shoulder of the cow in the state emblem was modified into a pig.

An investigation has begun into how the computer program was improperly modified to insert the image, Vermont Corrections Commissioner Andy Pallito told the Burlington Free Press.

Not to those of us who have to pay the bill on replacing all of those least we're not paying for the labor...oh wait, we are...maybe they should take it out of the recreation budget for these quality individuals...

But yes, it is pretty funny.

It is funny, they at least did a good job on it.

No, that's not pretty funny. It is drop dead hilarious. What I was surprised at was how quickly my eyes went right to the pig. I realize I now have prior knowledge but it sure looks obvious. It is not the cammo job that's done on the old Camel cigarette box.
