The police department in Bangor, Maine, took to Facebook Monday morning to upload a photo of one of their officers posing with a man that has a "Cops Suck" tattoo.

Police wrote: "Maybe the ink came at a time when Russell was having a problem with authority. We understand. We have all had a problem with authority at one time or another."

According to police, two officers met Russell over the weekend, and told him he needed to move from his location. Police say the man was pleasant and agreed to move on. He was not arrested or charged with any violations.

Officer Jimmy Burns noticed Russell's tattoo and Russell told the cops that he now regretted getting that written on his knuckles a few years back.

Russell agreed to let Burns get a photo of the ink. Officer Keith Larby was also on the scene.
