Not even Lego is safe from California’s latest head-scratching law championed by the woke Left

Crime has gone through the roof in many parts of America, especially in Democrat-controlled areas. 

Law enforcement officers have adopted new and creative tactics to identify and apprehend dangerous people as a result. 

But this bizarre practice has put Lego and California law enforcement officers into direct battle.

Lego could have never imagined it would face this issue with law enforcement 

Most people can remember setting up Lego sets in their youth, whether it was a complicated set or just a random construction. 

Many parents also have memories of Lego pieces strewn across the floor and the painful act of stepping on one. 

In recent years, Lego has exploded in popularity, with Lego stores popping up all over America. 

However, just this week, Lego came face to face with a problem they never thought they would have to deal with. 

In response to a new California law restricting the ability of police departments to share crime scene footage and mugshots, the Murrieta Police Department has replaced the faces of criminals with characterized heads of Lego figures. 

However, the Lego Group has voiced its concerns over the practice in an attempt to separate their brand from any controversy. 

Murrieta Police Department Lt. Jeremy Durrant told Fox News Digital, “The Lego Group reached out to us and respectfully asked us to refrain from using their intellectual property in our social media content which of course we understand and will comply with.” 

He added, “We are currently exploring other methods to continue publishing our content in a way that is engaging and interesting to our followers.”

The Murrieta Police Department addressed this bizarre practice earlier this month, posting on its Instagram page, “Why the covered faces? On January 1st, a new law went into effect that restricts the how and when law enforcement agencies in California share suspect photos & mugshots. The new law, Assembly Bill 994 & Penal Code 13665, now prohibits law enforcement from sharing suspect photos for nonviolent crimes, unless specified circumstances exist. Additionally, the new law requires agencies to remove suspect mugshots from social media after 14 days, unless special circumstances exist.”

Adding, “The Murrieta Police Department prides itself in its transparency with the community, but also honors everyone’s rights & protections as afforded by law; even suspects. In order to share what is happening in Murrieta, we chose to cover the faces of suspects to protect their identity while still aligning with the new law.”

Blue States like California have declared total war on law enforcement 

In Democrat-controlled states like California, law enforcement has had no choice but to resort to unique measures to do their job. 

Following the death of George Floyd in 2020, California and some other states gutted police funding and upended their criminal justice system to allow repeat offenders to run wild through the streets. 

As crime continues to surge, people can expect exasperated law enforcement officers to resort to other creative tactics to do their jobs.
