California Police on the Lookout for Nonexistent Pedobear

If you frequent the Internet, you must have encountered at least one image photobombed by the Pedobear. Actually photobombed isn’t the right word. His presence in pictures is more of a warning sign, because the original usage of Pedobear was to mock and call out pedophiles on 4chan, an imageboard site. In a hilarious, yet irritating turn of events, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department has issued a warning against the Internet meme, claiming “his cute and non-threatening appearance negate the truth of his sinister, much darker side.” Ooookay. And just what should people do when they see someone with a Pedobear costume or sticker? Call Dr. McNinja?

These pictures are actual copies of the public advisory made by the San Obispo police. They sent these images to Gawker in response to the blog’s article about this ridiculousness. A cursory glance at the advisory makes it obvious that it only makes things worse, as it singles out people who cosplayed as Pedobear and even a car owner who has a Pedobear sticker. As much as it pains me to say it, if you drop by or live in said County you better not be caught with any Pedobear-related image, because chances are you’ll be branded a pedophile. It’s the first documented case of memism folks. Them police be memists.

While they’re at it, police should also be on the lookout for Hamburglar, because that mascot is clearly promoting thievery.
