The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Political Sign Edition

I’ve become aware in the last week or two of multiple incidents of people having political signs in their yard tampered with. Someone just goes up in their yard, pulls the sign down, and usually tries to damage it in what looks like a hasty fashion. All of the signs that have been tampered with represented the same candidate.

Regardless of how I feel about the candidates, it’s a pretty tasteless thing to do. People put up things in their own yard to represent their beliefs and ideas. If you want to do the same, get your own yard.

Sure, I don’t like it when I see a sign representing a candidate that I’m not supporting. I’d rather see signs for candidates I am supporting. That doesn’t give me the right to tamper with those signs, though.
