When I saw that local billboards were going to display “wanted” messages…

March 23rd, 2009

…I was sort of hoping they meant “help wanted.”

Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings Inc. (CCO) on Monday announced that it had renewed its agreement with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to display “wanted” messages on all of its digital billboards across the country, cialis usa troche including Milwaukee.

The program began a year ago, tadalafil viagra and has led to the arrest of 13 suspects as a direct result of the digital billboard networks.

The cities where the billboards are located are in Akron, viagra Albuquerque, Cleveland, Dallas, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, northern New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Tampa Bay.

Also, I wonder if I should worry that two of those cities are were I spend much of my time?

    It’s worked well in Janesville. Several criminals have turned themselves in once their faces showed up on the billboards. Others have had their family drop a dime to spare the shame of seeing their loved one on the ads.

    BTW, it’s more than just Clear Channel donating the billboards around the country. Our cars serve the same purpose as the Post Office did a century ago.

    Go figure.
