Whoever came up with this scheme is, you should pardon the expression, running on empty:
West Lafayette police on Monday were trying to figure out why fliers talking about taking out singer-songwriter Jackson Browne — and by extension “college liberals” who didn’t agree with President Donald Trump — wound up this weekend tied to storm doors and bundled on driveways of a near-Purdue University neighborhood.
Police had several reports and picked up at least 50 fliers that called for Browne to get it, “Bam! Right between the eyes.”
“Doctor! My eyes!”
The fliers were rolled up with two or three sheets and, in some cases, with a nail and delivered in a portion of the New Chauncey neighborhood, a few blocks east of Purdue’s Mackey Arena.
The unsigned, uncredited fliers included the warning: “Hey, you p—- college liberal’s [sic], its Trump time now, shut your mouth or pay the consequences!! Just like this (piece of crap)!!”
Then again, had I written something that ridiculous, I wouldn’t want my name on it either.
