CAMP HILL, Pa. (WHTM) – Acting State Police Commissioner Marcus Brown has been under fire for his decision to wear a state police uniform despite never graduating from its academy.

A critic put up signs in his neighborhood Wednesday morning, saying Brown doesn’t deserve to wear the uniform. Brown took action and took down the signs, all caught on video.

The man who made the signs and the video is a retired member of the Pennsylvania State Police. He did not wish to be identified, but he told ABC27 he doesn’t like Brown and wanted to test his integrity.

The two signs which read “Marcus Brown didn’t earn it” and “Marcus Brown don’t wear it” were set up on Orrs Bridge Road in Hampden Township.

The critic says Brown grabbed the signs, walked back to both sides of his car, and put them inside.

Stealing signs from a public area is a crime. Hampden Township police said they are currently looking into the situation.

ABC27 contacted Pennsylvania State Police for reaction. Officials released a statement on behalf of Brown that read, “The safety of my children is my highest priority. These signs were placed within feet of my children’s bus stop, and I acted as a father.”
