Crossing the lines

The Star Tribune has an interesting article tonight:

Despite being blocked by police barricades, despite signs warning people to stay away and despite the deck of the bridge being raised above the surging water, more than half a dozen people have been cited for trying to cross the span, according to Sgt. Jeff Stender of the Stillwater Police Department.

If only the barricades were labeled…

My favorite:

Five people were cited for trespassing Sunday night, including four teenagers from St. Paul, who Stender said were bouncing off a long, plastic, water-filled bladder that had been set up across Chestnut Street at the bridge entrance to fill a gap in the levee.

That would be this thing:

Maybe they should move it to one of the playgrounds after the flood.
