political vandalism in Stuyvesant

Here is the Register Star article on the legalistic portion of this vendetta. Here is the story on the vandalism. When the law isn't working for them as a weapon, they grab a spray paint can. Same guys in both cases. Different methods.

Both stories fail to mention this, which I guess is fine.

On our local Yahoo forum, Peter Donahoe said, "Signs defaced by vandalous fascists" that "many of the White on Red dog silhouette signs have been defaced in the last day.. well just wait until you get pushed around by bullies and look for help from someone..."

Lee Jamison noted, "Stuyvesant Vernacular Lawn Art collections were defaced in a massive town-wide attack this past Monday night!"

Michelle Richardson asked, "We usually blame "kids" with too much free time on their hands in late October. That one or more alleged "adults" with too much free time on their hands - which I don't doubt is the case here - took the time to drive around and paint on signs...well, it's Stuyvesant, so we're not really surprised, are we?"

Christian Sweningsen said, "I'm surprised - and I'll be surprised when the swastikas appear, too."

Michelle Richardson responded, "Vandalism has been ongoing. There are dog signs in the creek by the bridge, someone took the VFW sign letters to spell messages, and other activity in the West Ghent Rd area. I imagine any noise-sensitive neighbors that may have been sitting at home, might have noticed the extra traffic breaking the silence of hamlet/hamlet extension zoning."

Stuyvesant Falls report: Mine was defaced. Also, Carol and David. Pam's was stolen. Teresa's was defaced. Krishna's was stolen. Her neighbor's was stolen (forgot their names). Robert's was defaced (dome house). Kate's was not damaged. Phyllis's (post office) was not damaged. The one next to Phyllis by the post office disappeared (forgot the names, sorry). Chris's was stolen. Eva's was stolen (his neighbor), mother of Christine. The one on the house next to Red Oak farm was defaced. Jim's was stolen on Route 9. Peter's? Stolen, route 9?

Stuyvesant: Lee's defaced, Andrew's stolen way back? new one not touched, Ned's?, Mike's defaced, his neighbor's (Chris?), defaced, Frank's stolen...

Look at this video to see the official government response to this and other acts of vandalism:

I painted those myself, with my kids. They mean something to me. Thank you to everyone who put them up. 

Who did it?
