A sick joke? Posted signs liken homeless population to rats
CHICAGO - Signs likening the homeless to rats were spotted on Chicago's North Side. Some were tacked to utility poles in Bucktown.
The posters were designed to look like city posters warning about areas of rat poisoning. Instead of a picture of a rat, there's a drawing of a homeless person with the headline "Target: Bums."
City crews have been ordered to take down any of the fake signs they see.
There is no word on who is responsible for the signs.
