Political sign stealing hilarity

note: I am by no means a McCain supporter, but this is funny either way


Boy shocked after man powers up campaign sign
Posted: 35 minutes ago

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Shawn Turschak of Chapel Hill was tired of someone stealing McCain-Palin campaign signs from his yard. Turschak, with a degree in electrical engineering, hooked up a third sign to a power source for an electric pet fence Monday and also put up a surveillance camera.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that a 9-year-old boy with an Obama-Biden sign grabbed the McCain-Palin sign and got a jolt on Tuesday.
The boy's father, Andrew Noble, upset that his son had been shocked, showed up at Turschak's door. Soon an Orange County sheriff's deputy also showed up at the Turschak's home.
Noble said his son just wanted to see how the sign was put together. Turschak said the boy intended to swap out the signs.
Sheriff Lindy Pendergrass said he doesn't plan to file charges.

Yeah, but our citizens don't do stuff like this. They just call the papers and assume it's the Conservatives doing it. I love our elections, they last between 39 and 45 days. We had one called at the start of Sept and voted Oct 14th. Its great, nice and short.

This past election there were issues in a couple ridings. People stealing signs, an environmental party using SUV's to drive around in, NDP candidates being exposed as pot smokers, etc. The worst was in Toronto, where several cars actually had their brakes cut and an L keyed into the door because the people had Liberal signs on their lawns. Including one 3... :shock:

Lesson 1: TEACH YOUR FREAKING KIDS TO STAY OFF OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY AND NOT TO TOUCH OTHER PEOPLE'S THINGS!

I would electrify everything I own if I could get away with it. Jackasses treat their own possessions like shit and do the same to yours!
