What do gang bangers look like? According to the Miami Police Department, they either resemble rapper Jay-Z or bad caricatures of Grand Theft Auto characters.
The police department used not one, but two different Jay-Z look-alikes in an ad encouraging the populace to report on suspected gang activity. Evidence is provided on the Miami New Times website which shows that the artwork was clearly based on real images of the rap impresario.
Appearing behind the pair Hova cartoons are a trio of characters that looked like they jumped straight out of a Grand Theft Auto game.
The image was posted prominently on the Miami Police website, but was recently removed and the department would not comment on any similarities. A screenshot of the image, as it appeared on the police website has been preserved here.
