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.” 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.

Since being posted online, you could imagine that the post has gained quite a few comments, thousands actually. Many comments claim the image to be in poor taste, especially during the holiday season.

The mere thought of two officers taking the time to tape all of these signs together and boast about it, is quite odd. The cardboard signs all have similar messages. The less fortunate asking for help and stating ‘God Bless’.
