Drafted by the USMS and local law enforcement, the messages will interrupt regular advertising for an initial half hour before repeating throughout the day.According to a press release, the scheme — which involves more than 960 billboards across the US — is beginning immediately, with messages having been posted about Clyde M. Hall, Jr., a so-called “career sex offender” currently wanted after failing to report to a halfway house in New York.
