Supporters of law, order and decent fashion tastes are ready to raise a billboard in Ferguson, Mo., mocking protesters’ longtime – but erroneous slogan of “Hands up, don’t shoot.”
The “Pants Up, Don’t Loot” billboard idea was launched on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo.com by a Tennessee man who was inspired by an Aug. 18 commentary on National Review Online, according to Gawker.com.
The billboard’s crowdfunding pitch included a promise that all money raised will be used for a “PantsUPDontShoot” billboard to be erected in Ferguson. The billboard would stay up for however long the money could pay for, the pitch said.
As of Monday, it had raised $3,086, just passing its original goal of $3,000.
Ferguson, meanwhile, and the rest of the country, awaits the ground jury decision on whether to charge Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson with fatally shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown during an Aug. 9 confrontation.
