Two Trump Supporters Use Different Tactics Against Would-Be Sign ThievesThis political cycle has been heated... to say the least. People on the Left cannot figure out why someone would vote for an outsider with no experience, who continuously insults minority groups across this country. People on the Right cannot comprehend why anyone would vote for an insider to get the same results we’ve seen year in and year out. The back and forth rhetoric gets a little frenzied, but everyone is being civil, right? Well, when it comes to yard signs, Trump supporters are having all the woes.
Ray Glibride lives in Bellingham, WA. He’s been plagued by a nuisance of vandals stealing Trump signs from his yard. From The Washington Times:
Ardent Trump supporter Ray Gilbride, of Bellingham, said the signs were routinely getting stolen from his front yard. In four months, he said he’s lost seven signs to anti-Trump pranksters. His surveillance cameras even captured one of them putting a Bernie Sanders sign in his yard, a local NBC News affiliate reported.Ray put up his next Trump sign with two metal rods and some copper wire running between the two. Enough to shock the vandals and keep them from stealing his signs. Or so he thought...
This young lady came running through and she grabs the signs, pulls them out and that’s where you can see plain as day, the jolt hit her a little bit. She just stopped, just a dead stop, and soon as the pulsing was done, she kinda got her senses and ripped them out and took off running down the street. But it was a pretty funny video.
An Indianapolis man, who only goes by Phillip, is facing similar troubles. He says people have tried to steal his Donald Trump signs twice in the past month. His solution is slightly less shocking, and a little more successful. From the Indy Channel:
But both attempts to snatch the sign have been unsuccessful – since Phillip, expecting this to happen, tied the sign in place with fishing wire and string spray-painted green. After the first attempt, he set up a camera.The camera caught the second would-be thief in the act as she attempted to run off with the sign, only to faceplant once she ran out of string.
