Sometime between 7 p.m. Aug. 27 and early the next morning, someone stole the handcrafted sign from my property on Mecklenburg Road in Enfield. I made the sign in order to spread the word that we need to uphold the law by impeaching Bush and Cheney, who have repeatedly violated the highest law of the land, our Constitution.
Apparently, the sign was stolen by a supporter of Bush and Cheney, and obviously, that person has no respect for the law or our Constitution. By stealing the sign, this person is guilty of larceny and has violated my First Amendment right of free speech. It's not surprising really that a person who would condone Bush's lying our country into war, would find nothing wrong with petty larceny. It's not terribly surprising that a person who sees nothing wrong with Bush's warrant-less surveillance program would not hesitate to trample on their neighbors' free speech rights.
If anyone knows anything about this crime, please call the Tompkins County Sheriffs' office at 272-2444.
