Political signs destroyed on Seal River properties


September 17, 2020

To The Eagle:

Someone came at night on Friday, 9/11, and tore down our son’s hand painted 4x8 foot BIDEN-HARRIS sign, leaving the other signs, and on the following night got Eddie Blain’s, also a BIDEN-HARRIS sign, so obviously a Trump fan.

I am a Christian and probably wouldn't be so draconian, but anyone knowing the vandals should inform them that per Revised Code of Washington, 9A.20.021, they've committed a Class C felony, which is punishable by a five-year prison sentence and/or $10,000 fine. The law specifies punishment: (c) For a class C felony, by confinement in a state correctional institution for five years, or by a fine, in an amount fixed by the court of ten thousand dollars, or by both such confinement and fine. In our case, as it is our property, a hand painted sign, it adds theft of personal property to it.

I mentioned it on Facebook and couldn’t keep up with all the comments, so the theft did more for the cause than the sign by itself did. I guess that’s some sort of karma, but it bothers me that there are Trump people so intent on winning that they would tear it down, take it, and even worse, leave the USA flag laying on the ground!

I am not angry, but sad, that it has gotten this ugly in such a short time.
