The Baltimore Police Criminal Intelligence Section is endangering the safety of their police officers by issuing such a warning. Why? Because the subconscious thinking behind such a warning is that if the decal is not present, there is less chance that the individual is armed.

This is dangerous thinking! Armed individuals who are intent on using their weapons do not display advertising that might suggest that they are armed. Hence, police in Baltimore will be less alert with the more dangerous, criminal faction... simply because of this warning.

The result will be potentially more harm to police officers who think that they are safer to commit police brutality against those people who are not displaying the decal... people who may actually be more apt to defend themselves against the police... with the use of weapons!
