The Madame Defarge Knitting Club East has nominated for the Jerks of the year award  Preston McGraw and Alexandre Olivier Mobile Alabama USA. Way beyond poor taste. As Milly said, This photo of these guys make me more committed in the fact of which side I am on and I know full well it is not on the side of the grinning buffoons.

In this photo posted to Facebook, two police officers from Mobile, Alabama pose with a “quilt” made from cardboard signs confiscated from homeless people in the area over the Christmas break.

“Wanna wish everybody in the 4th precinct a Merry Christmas, especially our captain,” says the caption to the posting. “Hope you enjoy our homeless quilt. Sincerely Panhandler patrol.”
Al.com names the two grinning officers as Preston McGraw and Alexandre Olivier, and points out that the photo was taken in a police department office. It was first posted to Officer McGraw’s page, but has been shared widely since.

Mobile Police Department has not responded to a request for comment. AL.com also emailed every city council member for comment. No one has yet responded.
Since being posted online the image has been shared more than 10,000 times and has over 3,000 comments. Many comments claim the image to be in poor taste, especially during the holiday season.

and Commissar Gritty on Facebook came up with this:

The Madame Defarge Knitting Circle East fully supports the photo by Commissar Gritty.
