CA Police Use Lego Toys To Conceal Criminal’s ID – Lego Wants Them To Stop

Another day in clown world.

In case you missed it, the State of California has a new law.

And who does this new law protect in Commifornia?

That’s right, you guessed it. The criminals!

This new law seeks to protect the privacy and IDs of criminals.

They can’t let the public see who’s commiting these crimes.

If they did that, pattern recognition might happen and that won’t tolerate that.

So how do they hide these criminal’s identification?

By using Lego heads.

(Why post their pictures then? What’s the point?)

Don’t they look so sad?

Doesn’t that tug on your heartstrings?

Ah, they didn’t mean to do those crimes. Poor little Lego people.

Well, those at corporate weren’t so caring.

Lego has responded and wants the police to refrain from using those heads.

You know, I just got an idea.

They could use the public domain Mickey!

That would be great press for Disney haha!

We heard about what you’ve been up to, Mickey.

It’s off to the slammer with you.

Then Lego had to step in and spoil all the fun:

Hang on, officer. I’d recognize that beard anywhere, it’s #4!

Gateway Pundit reports:

Lego has ordered the Murrieta Police Department in California to stop using images of the toys to mask suspects’ identities in social media posts.

Images of the Lego-headed criminals went massively viral last week.

Murrieta Police Department Lt. Jeremy Durrant confirmed Lego had contacted them.

“The Lego Group reached out to us and respectfully asked us to refrain from using their intellectual property in our social media content which of course we understand and will comply with,” Durrant told Fox News. “We are currently exploring other methods to continue publishing our content in a way that is engaging and interesting to our followers.”

Last Tuesday, the Murrieta Police Department announced on Instagram that they would be using Lego heads to comply with a state privacy law.

“On January 1st, a new law went into effect that restricts the how and when law enforcement agencies in California share suspect photos & mugshots,” the post stated.

“The new law, Assembly Bill 994 & Penal Code 13665, now prohibits law enforcement from sharing suspect photos for nonviolent crimes, unless specified circumstances exist. Additionally, the new law requires agencies to remove suspect mugshots from social media after 14 days, unless special circumstances exist.”
