I swear, Ty Cobb was nowhere near this sign…
Vandalizing political signs is not a single-party pursuit, as the following photos will attest. The Reasonable Reporter snapped these while walking the dog on various days over the past six months.
Event #1 – The sign appears.
Event #2- The sign is stolen from its mounting.
Event #3- The sign is run over with a vehicle.
The Reasonable Reporter regrets not having been quick enough with the camera to record the next event in the series. One morning the sign lay flat on the ground, metal poles bent. Tire tracks indicated that a vehicle was driven over the curb to knock the sign down. The sign’s owner (presumably the property owner) responded quickly, plunging the posts deeply into the ground, and bolting the metal sign to its plywood foundation. Look closely at the next photo in the series to see the bolts on the white portion of the sign. A heavy boulder was placed several feet in front of the sign, to discourage curb-jumping. The sign enjoyed several months of safety, and then…
Event #4 – The sign is spray painted.
Event #5 – The sign is kicked… or something.
Sometime after the sign was run over, but before it was spray painted, someone tried to dislodge it from its mounting. This photo shows where the corner was kicked loose, or perhaps hit with a heavy instrument.
The Reasonable Reporter will continue to monitor this political drama as it unfolds.Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized
