I know this is quickly becoming a dupe topic here, but I thought I would at least post it. My sign is missing as of this morning. The wire frame is still there, but the sign is gone. It was there yesterday, but gone today. We have had NO weather that would make this happen. It was taken. I wish I had a wireless camera to put on it, but I don't have the money or the time to mess with that now.

I am going to get another, and if it turns up missing, I am going to become a Kerry sign stealing machine. If they want to cost my candidate money, I will return the favor.

The cowards do it at night. Attach those flat sticky pad rat traps to the back of the sign.

You should go into the Brothers of the Shield thread and ask what the investigators use to mark property to determine theft - it's a kind of sulfide. There's a compound you can put on your sign that's inert until a person touches it. Once it gets on their skin, it's transferred each time they touch or rub their skin with their hands. It starts to react to their body heat and after about half an hour, they're skin is a nice bright color (green was my favorite) that takes about three days to wear off.

Here's the powder:
The ATPR powder is useful in situations where you need a visible stain detection. The ATPR powder normally has a dark green / brown appearance. However, once the powder becomes moist from the moisture in skin, water, alcohol, acetone or just about any liquid substance, the powder changes to a highly visible purple stain. The stain is very difficult to get remove. Water, alcohol, acetone and other solvents do not remove the stain.

If your weather is anything like we have here, there is dew at night while will probably ruin the powder. But if it's dry go ahead and try it.

Or if you can't afford that, just tape razor blades to the edges of the sign, so someone gets a surprise when they grab it.

Link Posted: 10/3/2004 3:16:04 PM EST
This again?



Rig up a can of pepper spray, so that when the sign comes out of the ground, some one gets it in the face.

I like that then just follow the blood trail.

Someone stole two signs out of my yard a few weeks back.

Put up a Bush sign, and next to it put up a sign saying that "if someone steals this sign 2 kerry signs will meet the same fate".

Some good ideas here. I am going to have to do something. Probably just start a collection of JFK signs.

It happened in NLR.

UPDATE: I went for a nice little jog around our neighborhood tonight and found my sign. It was about 2 blocks away on the side of the road. It had been run over a few times, and it had gravel imprints on it, but it still looks pretty good. I brought it home and wrote on the inside, "Every time you steal my sign, I steal 2 Kerry signs."

It's back reattached to the frame.

I say, first, go steal Kerry signs in proportion to the number taken from you.... I'd say at 3:1 . Then, pull an all-nighter by using a whole can of coffee grinds and lay in wait in the shadows until the hippie bastards come up. Then , since they are pussified Kerry supporters, charge the bastards like a pissed off bull and start knee capping the shit out of them with whatever is handy...

HEY.. You've got to get 'er done!!

That would be illegal.



No, it wouldn't be. Setting things like spring guns is illegal. But you would likely open yourself up to a civil lawsuit. Depends I guess on whether the jury are Dumbocrats or Republicans.
When you report the theft to the police make sure to also list the number of razor blades stolen also so you can get reimbursed for their cost.
Link Posted: 10/4/2004 7:41:45 PM EST
I don't think using razor-blades on a sign in YOUR yard would be illegal if someone touched it aslong as they weren't in that four-or-so-foot zone from the curb that is federal property. If it is on your land, then it is trespassing... and they are the ones tampering with your property.
