I love this, check it out, click the link for the picture

Police in Germany are hunting pranksters who have been sticking miniature flag portraits of US President George W. Bush into piles of dog poo in public parks. Josef Oettl, parks administrator for Bayreuth, said: "This has been going on for about a year now, and there must be 2,000 to 3,000 piles of excrement that have been claimed during that time." The series of incidents was originally thought to be some sort of protest against the US-led invasion of Iraq. And then when it continued it was thought to be a protest against President George W. Bush's campaign for re-election. But it is still going on and the police say they are completely baffled as to who is to blame. "We have sent out extra patrols to try to catch whoever is doing this in the act," said police spokesman Reiner Kuechler. "But frankly, we don't know what we would do if we caught them red handed." Federal legal experts say there is no law against using faeces as a flag stand and the federal constitution is vague on the issue.

Here's the thing, there's no crime, but I bet if you got caught they'd put you on the no fly list, and tap your phone and read your mail and search your asshole everytime you tried to cross a border.

all those references in the article about police patrols trying to catch the persons involved, what for? are they arresting the person? just want to say hi? see if it's a boy or girl?

perhaps they just want to ask what the person is protesting.
