This is what self-entitlement looks like
“A group of about eight white people covered graffiti on plywood with “We Support Our Madison Police” signs Thursday afternoon, witnesses said, but the signs were taken down by others in relatively short order.
“Witnesses said those hanging the signs physically impeded, pushed and shouted at those who were attempting to take the signs down.
“(One of those hanging signs) was screaming at me as this was happening,” said one witness, who requested anonymity. “He was trying to intimidate me into stopping. But I told him that I wasn’t afraid.”
The nerve! People putting up the signs to cover over the graffiti attempted to stop their signs from being immediately pulled down!
