Reminder: Damaging Political Signs in Colorado is Illegal
Even before the Presidential debate that took place on Tuesday, we have seen many people around Colorado that have had their political signs ruined by people with different beliefs. This kind of vandalism and disrespect needs to stop, not with one side or the other, but both sides need to act like adults.
The last thing I ever want to talk about even with some of my closest friends is politics, we all have our own beliefs and you're not going to change someone else's opinion. Especially on something that is such a hot button topic such as the President of the United States of America.
That's what makes this country so great is that we all can have different opinions and beliefs and no one is wrong for how they feel. Now if your feelings are so important to you that you think it's okay to damage someone else's property, you're wrong.
It's amazing to me how many people on the Next Door app have been complaining about signs on their property being destroyed. I would never go to someone's property and damage any sign, it's crazy to me that people think this is okay.
In case you were wondering or needed a reminder, it is still illegal to damage someone else's property. Damaging just one sign could bring vandalism charges or criminal mischief which would be a Class 3 misdemeanor if the sign costs less than $300. There could be additional charges for trespassing if you go onto property without permission.
So remember to not be a jerk, and don't damage property that isn't yours.
