Hilarious: 9-year-old kid bent on replacing a guy’s McCain signs with Obama signs doesn’t realize that the owner has gotten sick of his signs getting stolen, and has rigged a low voltage wire to the signposts and is recording the whole thing on hidden camera. Let’s watch!
After Shawn Turschak saw two sets of McCain-Palin signs disappear from his yard within hours of being planted, he took steps to protect the latest pair.
On Monday, he ran wires from his house and hooked the signs into a power source for an electric pet fence. Then he mounted a surveillance camera in a nearby tree and wired it to a digital recorder.
Tuesday afternoon, the camera saw this: A neighbor trotting up with an Obama-Biden sign, grabbing a handful of volts as he touched a McCain-Palin sign, then fleeing at top 9-year-old boy speed.
“This isn’t about politics,” he said. “This is about my right to protect my property and my ability to display my beliefs.”
It gets better:
The boy’s father, Andrew Noble, upset that his son had been shocked, showed up at Turschak’s door. Soon an Orange County sheriff’s deputy also showed up at the Turschak’s home.
Noble said his son just wanted to see how the sign was put together. Turschak said the boy intended to swap out the signs.
Nice try, “Dad.” How’s about returning the sign you sent your son to steal?
