Liberal vandal(s) endanger public with fiery prank

No matter what side of the political arena you support, one should never resort to actions that could harm others. Unfortunately, someone on the left side didn’t get that message.

A large Donald Trump campaign sign was set ablaze in the 1300 block of Eastern Blvd in Chase sometime around October 18.

Sources told this journalist that, had it not been for the quick actions of a passerby who extinguished the fire, adjacent buildings could have been endangered due to the proximity, size of the sign, and the possibility of embers spreading.

Recently, I wrote about similar problems occurring in Dundalk, and these types of incidents are unfortunately being repeated on a regular basis.

Initially I was contacted by a top state GOP official inquiring about who to contact at the police department for information on this issue.

After several attempts to get an official response, which he did not get, he was transferred to the precinct and spoke to a supervisor who advised him about letting people know how to protect their property.

Apparently the police are clueless to this series of crimes, which—according to Chief Johnson—does not exist in Baltimore County. There is no transparency at the top level of the department, and County Executive Kamenetz and Chief Johnson have their heads buried in the sand … or they are allowing politics to get in the way of public safety.

Here is a copy of an email I sent to police spokeswoman Elise Armacost regarding campaign sign vandalism:

Elise Armacost:

Mr. Al Mendelsohn, head of the MD GOP contacted me regarding a sign burning in the 1300 block of Eastern Blvd.

Can you give me a breakdown of the number of calls of this type county wide and do you identify the name on the campaign sign?

Thank you.

As is typical with the Baltimore County Police administration, mum was, once again, the word.

This is a shame because such silence destroys the trust of the citizens in the government; only transparency can form that bond.

Now, as the above column indicates, this is not an isolated problem in Baltimore County.

Does the lack of response have to do with political agendas? We all know Mr. Kamenetz is a Democrat.

It seems like every time one asks the department a question that could result in a negative public relations incident, one gets no response.

It also seems like this whole issue has become a joke, as the lack of leadership has led to a demoralized department according to many officers to whom I have spoken.

Consider my recent column regarding the dismissal of felony charges against TACT Sergeant Daniel Galloway. I mentioned that I have heard from former BC officers now working in other states. They spoke of how Chief Johnson and TACT commander Major Butch Wilson are destroying the morale of not only the TACT Unit, but the entire agency, including the line officers.

One would think that a simple vandalism case involving a campaign sign would not be a difficult issue for the media relations unit to respond to.

Then again, as I mentioned, the desire for the media relations folks to respond depends on the topic.

If anyone thinks this issue could not spin out of control, then just read this recent article that appeared in the NY Post.

I searched Google and could not find one story about a Democratic office being firebombed or a Clinton campaign sign being torched. What does that say?

By the way, if I missed such a story, feel free to let me know in the comment section below.

Meanwhile, the campaign sign stealing continues in Dundalk, yet I could not find one story in the blind Dundalk Eagle, which—from what I have heard—may be on it last egg.

As far as the one-sided other thin paper in town, the Sun, this is all I could find, but it occurred in another county.

I also found it rather interesting that in a recent Sun readers’ poll, Trump trumped Clinton. Very surprising considering the Sun endorsed Hillary.

So much for the paper’s opinion.

I would sum it up this way—it seems like the Clinton supporters dig deep for words while destroying 30,000 emails, but yet they believe that “actions speak louder than words.”

Especially actions like setting fires and stealing.
