Empty Booting Threats In Minneapolis

Photo by John Hoff

Not so long ago, Minneapolis "banned the boot" except in very small parking lots, and what a great day that was.

However, it appears nobody told the booters to change their signs. This sign is in the infamous McDonalds parking lot in Dinkytown, where so much overly-zealous booting took place prior to the much needed reform. This is a very large parking lot, so it doesn't fall into the class of lots where booting is still allowed.

Call me a purist, but I don't think you should be allowed to post a sign threatening to do something you can't legally do. (Obvious joke signs being an obvious exception) And no, the "& or" doesn't make it acceptable.

Consider: "I'm going to arrest and/or beat you within an inch of your life."
