A family at a Michigan residence say they grew tired of people stealing Trump campaign signs from their private property, likely often under cover of night, so it appears they decided to make sure the thieves would pay a price.
A homeowner in Commerce Township decided to tape sharp razor blades to the bottom of the next sign they put out. The blades lined the bottom of the Trump-Pence 2020 sign, so that the next vandal would be in for a surprise.
I think that a question for the township is if they were selectively enforcing the regulations to remove Trump signs, while leaving signs for other candidates. That sounds like a violation of the first amendment rights.
My understanding is that you can’t create a trap for trespassers. I think a reasonable question is whether sharp edges were concealed or were obvious to anyone any real inspection of the sign.
Can people with livestock still use barbed wire and electrical fences?
