BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A police officer in Maine is getting a laugh out of a man’s tattoo that says, “Cops Suck.”
The Bangor Police Department on Monday posted a Facebook photo of the man holding out his fists with letters tattooed on his knuckles next to a smiling officer. The photo has more than 3,700 likes.
The police department has received attention for using humor in its social media presence.
Police note the man apparently had a problem with authority earlier in his life but cooperated when they asked him to move on over the weekend.
Officers Jimmy Burns and Keith Larby were so impressed by the tattoo they reached for their camera, not the handcuffs. Larby smiled for the camera and gave a thumbs up.
