Folks, the nice part of the democratic process in this country is that everyone gets to speak his/her mind regarding the candidates. However, some people don’t accept that whole “freedom of speech” concept when someone else has an opposing viewpoint.
Case in point—vandals have targeted the Eastfield Stanbrook community, stealing 13 Donald Trump for President signs. According to members of the community, the thefts occurred on 8/17/16 between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm.
As of yet, no suspect or suspects have been located or identified. Residents are hoping that someone may have seen something and contacted the police, but nothing has been confirmed as of this writing.
According to residents, this is the second time Trump campaign signs have been targeted.
The brazen thing is that the vandals are doing this in broad daylight. Residents are also hoping that someone will come forward and contact the police over these thefts.
I notified the Dundalk Precinct and advised the authorities of the situation, but an officer said he was not aware of any reported incidents in the 7th District; however, the officer said he would make the commander aware of the thefts.
Meanwhile, this vandalism is not currently limited to Dundalk, as this report from CNN indicates:
As for me, I agree with the gentleman featured in the report who stated, “Respect my opinion to vote for who I want to.”
I also noticed the report said few Hillary signs were stolen.
Maybe Trump had a point when he spoke about the Democrats “stealing the election.”
