Yard sign thefts

My town is having problems with some douche bag(s) traveling around and stealing "John Kerry for President" and "UA for Kerry" signs. The town is rich and predominately conservative republican, with most residents voting republican; however , this presidential year seems to be a bit different. In the suburban news, it says that there were close to 300 calls to the police about stolen kerry signs. I could care less if it were a Bush or Kerry sign, but to come on someones property to steal something because you don't agree with it is really low class. I guess its time to get conservative and bust out the 44 mag on the next person messin' with people's yard signs.

Stealing Kerry signs is so low, it is better to put a Bush sign in front of one or if you prefer a Kerry sign in front of a Bush.

This is actually happening all over the country. I've rigged mine with dye packs.

We used to live close to there (Grandview Heights), and we had lots of junior high & high school punks roaming around. Tire valve stem caps stolen, christmas decorations stolen, firecrackers lit at night, flower pots broken, things spray-painted...

I know that UA has super-duper schools, but maybe the kids there are so smart that they need to find challenges on their own?

when I was in high school, we used to reverse the politics of the neighborhood political signs. We stayed away from presidential signs, but once we put this huge 4'x6' plywood poster for a local rep. in my band director's front yard. Then, upon returning to the scene the next day to admire our prank, realized we'd actually put it next door!

They may take your signs, but they'll never take your FREEDOM!!!
