Denver — A Construction sign In Denver’s RiNO district, commuters caught the eye on Wednesday morning with three different messages that were clearly unrelated to work on the sign.
“It said’Abolic Policeman’,’ Supporting Transgender Children’and’Burning It’,” said Eli Knitch.
Denver city officials say the sign was hacked, but I don’t know how it happened.
City officials added that the car rental company that owns the sign had removed the sign from the road, and said workers had almost run out of it anyway.
“Honestly, I was wondering why I thought it was a DOT sign,” Knitch said. “Of course, I support that everyone can go out and listen, but I was surprised to see it in public facilities,” he said.
The company that rents the sign to the city said it had a control board inside the box. In some cases, if it remains unlocked, or if someone has an extra key, someone who knows what they are doing could easily hack the sign. there is.
Denver police have not filed criminal charges at this time.
