The Orlando police Department also issued a statement saying, "These hateful racist banners have no place in our community and the West Lafayette Police Department is investigating this as a crime of harassment and felony intimidation". "As always, rely on our residents and visitors to be our eyes and ears in the community".
The second one also referenced Browne, while the other included the date January 23 and the message "die Orlando just like Los Vegas". According to Browne's website, his music is charged with "honesty, emotion and personal politics".

Authorities in West Lafayette and Orlando have yet to make an arrest in the case.
