Residents of MainStrasse and Seminary Square recently met with city officials regarding violence and run-ins with the police that residents felt were motivated by homonegative attitudes, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
Covington commissioners reaffirmed the city’s committment to protecting human rights and dedication to equal treatment of all citizens in a press conference Tuesday. Two days later, this flier littered the streets of Covington in response:
The Covington Police are looking for the culprits, who could face fines for violating of the city’s sign ordinance. Fines can range from $100 to $500 per violation to a maximum of $10,000.
“We are locating them (the fliers) and removing the hateful remarks from the public areas,” Spike Jones, assistant chief of the Covington Police, told the Louisville Courier-Journal. “They are violating city ordinances by posting on trees and poles. We are very concerned about the message this flier contains.”
