Santa impersonators wrap radar cameras in TempePosted: Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- A group of Santa impersonators are on the naughty list of Arizona law enforcement officials.
A YouTube video posted Monday shows four people dressed as Kris Kringle, white beards and red hats included, covering three speed and red light enforcement cameras in Tempe.
Two are covered with boxes -- one decorated with Christmas wrap -- and the third is blocked with what appears to be a red sheet.
The Jackson 5's "Santa Claus is coming to town" plays during the more than two-minute video.
At the end is a message that reads:
"Ho Ho Ho! Death to the surveillance state! Free movement for all people!"
The group that posted the video also wrote "lumps of coal to all of those who make it their business to watch and control."
