Leave them alone


To the Editor:

This is aimed at the individuals who removed an approved campaign sign:

On Oct. 14 I approved a Marc Broadman campaign sign to be placed on one of my properties. Within 24 hours of its placement, it was thrown in the ditch.

This letter is to let you know that you broke numerous laws and RCWs. RCW29A.84.40 deals with removal or defacing lawfully placed political signs, and you are guilty of a misdemeanor under RCW 9A.20.021.

Trespassing: you illegally came on to private property that you had no business being on to commit a criminal act. Look up RCW 9A.48.090.

Furthermore, you tried to deny me of my freedom of speech, which is protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

I don’t trespass or remove political signs on your property, so please stay off mine.
