What the girls did is a civil rights, a free speech and an election violation ... all FEDERAL CRIMES. Criminal destruction of legally posted election signs is but one infraction. I once ran for local public office and a policeman in uniform was seen in the act of destroying dozens of my signs on morning of the election. i had been outspoken about a divisive union issue but won as highest vote getter. Chicago tv named it the worst story of that Election Day! Law enforcement should protect, not deny, citizens' rights. In this case, influence of the union outweighed their duties. Surprise, surprise!
These two girls need to be held accountable for their actions, though unlikely to receive maximum penalty. As well, the paid anarchists at so-called 'protests' destroying property, endangering lives are denying folks the Constitutional Right of Free Speech.
