Cobb neighbors outraged by hacked highway sign

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Police are working to find out who hacked into a digital road sign and put up a profane message about police officers.

The sign, on Johnson Ferry Road near Sewell Mill Road in Cobb County, is currently out of service.

Channel 2's Ross Cavitt learned it flashed a slur against officers a few hours before the police ambush in Baton Rouge, Louisiana over the weekend.

People who live in the area are outraged.

"People are very pro-police here. My daughter-in-law is an officer and I have nothing but respect for these people," resident David Conrad said.

The local Fraternal Order of Police president said Cobb County officers have received overwhelming support in recent days.
