People are just too much sometimes ...

This happened very near to where I live, and I was disturbed and repulsed by how tactless some people can be. Here's a link to the live TV news story, followed by a brief summary from the page.

http://www.9news.com/news/local/article/315280/222/Immigrant-Hunting-Permit-sold-at-gas-stations-


EATON, CO--A bumper sticker that jokes about hunting illegal immigrants is causing uproar after it was sold at some gas stations in the area.

The sticker is titled "Illegal Immigrant Hunting Permit" and says the words "No Bag Limit" and "Tagging not required."

"I just couldn't believe my eyes," a 9NEWS viewer, who didn't want to be identified, said. The viewer emailed 9NEWS earlier this week and said the stickers were sold at a Cenex gas station in Eaton.

The convenience store is owned by Agfinity, Inc.

9Wants to Know bought one of the stickers before two employees said they made a mistake selling it.

"I don't know if we just missed one or two in there, but those were not supposed to be there," an Agfinity employee said.

Agfinity spokesperson Mark Reinert said the stickers were removed over the weekend after customers started to complain on the company's Facebook page.

Reinert said on Wednesday his company has no official comment on the stickers.

Central States Novelty, based in Kansas, makes and distributes the stickers to Agfinity stores. 9Wants to Know was told by a woman who answered the phone the owner was unavailable for comment.

  • I think that totally sucks. The type of person that buys that sticker is below the level of a human being.

  • I'm not buying for one second that they were accidentally left there and weren't intended to be sold.

  • I guess sadly I am not surprised. There are many brands of hatred, this is just one.
