Teen Shot For Stealing McCain Sign Video | “Warning Shots” Yeah Right


You’ve probably heard about these kind of pranks happening all the time. One day, there’s an election sign (in this case a McCain & Palin sign) in a yard, and the next day it’s gone.

But if you were to witness one of these acts of vandalism occurring, would a rifle really be necessary? Well, according to this Republican it was.

I don’t know about the laws in Ohio, but where I live in Georgia it is completely legal to shoot someone who you see as a threat on your private property. Still, pulling out a gun over a yard sign seems like a ridiculous threat to me. Even though the shooter was set free, it’s good to know he was fined and criminally charged.

According to the property owner, he was only firing “warning shots.” Though, if you look at the photos of the car there is no doubt that he was aiming. Had the boy been shot in the head instead of the arm, I think this would have made an even bigger story.

    If I saw someone messing around in MY yard, I would shoot first, ask questions later (because, honestly, why would any teenager care about politics). For all we know, the kid was casing the place and just pretending to be messing with the sign to throw suspicion off what he was really doing. Bet he’ll think twice before scaring some other person like that, though. People need to take responsibility for their own actions, and those of their children. You CAN NOT just walk up into people’s yards in this country. Not with police being unable to prevent ANY crimes and letting the criminals out of jail even when they are lucky enough to catch them. Hats off to the man for protecting his property and I hope he fights the charges and wins. If it were me, I’d tell them I thought I saw a gun in his hands.
