Man's Obama Yard Sign Burned

Caledonia police say there's no evidence of who may have destroyed the sign.

A man called 911 after someone set his Obama yard sign on fire at a home in the 7800 block of Douglas Avenue 2:11 p.m. Friday.

According to a report by the Caledonia Police Department, the man told police he suspected his neighbor had lit the sign on fire after a witness saw the sign smoldering in the front yard. When the witness walked up to the driveway, he saw the man's neighbor walking back down the driveway. The neighbor told police he didn’t start the fire.

Police said the two neighbors have had an ongoing, but civil disagreement with one another. However, they have no proof that the neighbor lit the man’s sign on fire and no citations will be issued.

A number of pro-Obama and pro-Romney signs have been vandalized across the country.

Sorry about the terms of service violation, Denise. My bad. Guessing the thug vandal thought he/she was practicing their first amendment rights with their artistic reinterpretation of Romney-Ryan signage. It was in that same spirit I posted the picture. Anyone who wants a better look can check it out at Racine GOP victory center. An excellent place to volunteer at to make phone calls and the like, BTW. But really, Denise? Calling the police over a crispy sign is what makes it news? "My camp" would have the police running in circles if we reported all the transgressions against us. You know that is true. My house was egged during the recall election because of the signage I had out front. No, I didn't call the police. I just worked harder for my cause.

80% chance that this guy burned it himself, just to get publicity. It's been done before by low iq liberals.

Ms. Lockwood, could you have blacked out certain letters on those pictures? I think the public has a right to see them. Thanks.

Notice that the more vicious acts of vandalism are against Romney supporters. When Obama loses on November 6th, despite all the cheating and thuggery. Don't think for one minute that there is not going to be rioting. That is what liberals do. When things don't go their way they have temper tantrums. It is pretty sad that good decent people can't have a voice, without worrying about getting property destroyed. Spray painting a boat is far worse then a burned yard sign. I would love to hear Obama's answer if asked about his followers tactics!

Oh, please grow up--if you want to debate facts, not insult your neighbors it would be much more interesting.
