ICYMI: TX highway construction sign hacked, changed to ‘HILLARY FOR PRISON’

AM: That was the warning message that had Dallas drivers doing a double take on Saturday.

Someone “hacked” a construction warning sign in I-30 to read “Hillary for prison,” Fox 4reports.

The prankster also included, “Free Barrett Brown,” a reference to a Dallas writer with ties to the “hacktivist” collective Anonymous, according to The Dallas Morning News.

“Tampering with a warning sign is a misdemeanor crime that is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and up to two years in jail,” Fox 4 notes.  MORE

  1. So glad you posted this MJA! I was thinking earlier about this very ‘hack’. And if we could just get those Russian spies to stream Killery’s emails across America’s road signs…

  2. So…..does that mean that freedom of speech is punishable by $1,000 and up to two years in jail??

    Ha! With liberals in charge I see the writing on the wall.

  3. They were planning to hack the crawler on MSNBC, but they figured out that people would actually see the road signs.

  4. Sick, freedom of speech does not include using others property.
    Should Bernie supporters be allowed to spray paint your car and home?
    It does not even include using government property.
    Should CAIR have the right to electronically jam a presidential speech and substitute a beheading?

  5. @JohnS – Sick? Hell, no! It is apt, funny, welcome, and wrong. There should indeed be a penalty imposed for using someone else’s property without permission. But saying the perp is sick is, um, kinda sick. Certainly an over-reaction.

  6. JohnS, anyone can come to my place and say what they want on my private land. Destroying my property with spray paint is different.

  7. (say it with me)
    Ban JohnS. Ban his ass. Asap.
    All he does is stir up trouble and antagonize, then when someone reacts he screeches, “you guyz h8 free speech!!1!” > >
    (Ban the bum!)

  8. Oh come on you guys open your hearts to JohnS, he likes to do favors, trust me he will be making rounds, just ask for the list *wink*

  9. In other news, democrat supporting road sign company not at fault for failing to secure sign message access. Claims they need a gov’t grant to stop the unauthorized messages.
