My girl friend showed me a video off some unknown web sight the a day or two before Halloween, he claimed that Hillary supporters had cut up his face for wearing a Trump hat. The video showed his face with many cuts with stiches the more I looked at it the more fake it looked he never held the camera still long enough to get a good look at the cuts, in the end I felt it was faked with some fairly good make up job. I have no idea why some one would try a stunt like this or which side could have been behind it. People can do the strangest things for unknown reasons, I can think of a reason for people on both sides to try this.

why would the news reporter ASSUME it was a trump supporter?  It is more likely a democrat that did this, trying to falsely portray the conservative trump supporters as violent.

If you're talking about the FOX4 news report here, no one assumed it was a Trump supporter: not the anchor, not the reporter, and not anyone interviewed. Without any evidence and with a police investigation pending, the news station did a good job in not pointing a finger of blame in any direction. You could learn a thing or two from their example.

Because is discredits the hundreds of reports (rarely allowed to be spoken on the news) of Clinton supporters vandalizing Trump signs, often on a daily basis. If the idea of 'violent Trump people' putting razors in the signs is 'floated' it sticks in the minds of those willing to support Hillary, even if there's zero evidence for it. THAT is why everyone looking at this will assume it was either a Trump or Hillary supporter, because it was ON a political sign, okie?

@5Cats: What on Earth are you talking about? Honestly, your comment here makes no sense at all.

I think I'm going to call Shenanigans on this one, like the pro Trump message painted on the church, probably done by a lefty.

Yeah, a lefty burned and vandalized a 111 year-old Baptist church to make Trump look bad. Couldn't possibly have been a racist attacking a black church. That's never happened.

A lady (who is Black by the way) put nail-spike strips underneath her 2 Trump signs because 'someone' kept running them over. Sure enough the culprit (a white male) got about 100 yards before he had to stop because of the flat tire. They took his licence and lots of pictures as he changed it :-) I nearly submitted it, but the Hillary-bots would have been... displeased :-p

Could go either way: Could be a Trump Sociopath, Could be a false flag by a Hillary Sociopath.

If a person who didn't know the blades were there reached under and yanked upwards? There's be a single line of deep cuts, not 3 separate areas with tiny cuts. That alone makes it look completely fake. Even with the spaces between the blades (which are really small) taken into account, there'd be ONE line, and deep, not like what is shown.

There are tiny little cuts on 3 separate areas of the hand, and none where a person who reached under a sign to yank it out of the ground would have a cut: sure looks fake to me! How did the cuts in between the pinky & ring and ring/middle fingers get there? Did the person reach under 3 times, getting cut each time in separate places? Why are there slice cuts (lines) mixed with scrape cuts (circular areas)? How can that even happen? :-/

I was thinking the same thing. Whichever the case the person is pretty despicable. This could have really hurt someone if they gave it a good yank to free it.

My best guess (and it's only a guess) is that this person was actually trying to remove the sign from private property. If it's on your private property, I have no problem with you attaching anything to it, be it a Trump or Hillary sign. But, if it was on public property should be investigated.

Get this: The sign was on public property and placed directly in front of a VOTE HERE sign. The person who wasinjured was a poll worker just doing his job and trying to relocate the sign to a spot that didn't obstruct the official signage. In other words: The person who boobytrapped the sign wasn't just trying to protect his sign against vandalism--he or she wanted someone to get hurt.

@Grendel: Yup, I got that. I wasn't trying to admonish you in any way; my "Get this" was simply my way of saying "Can you believe this?"--because it really blows my mind that someone would do such a thing.

Which is why I stated 'if it was on public properly should be investigated'. And prosecuted.

Geez, that's horrible. Worst we ever had here was people spray-painting things on candidates' faces on billboards. Though when removing/moving signs I don't think I've ever seen anyone pick them up from the bottom before.

I know! People who vandalize (a crime) other people's property because they dislike their political views are fucking scum. They deserve what they get.

Showing solidarity with the psychopath who did this, 5Cats? C'mon. I know you aren't that bad.

The psychopath who attacks other people's personal property because of political hate? You need to learn how to read 'human language' Mr.Squrl4; I was not supporting this vandal who attacked a Trump sign, eh? I'm saying the vandal/psychopath deserves what they got. IDK how you could mis-read that, it's pretty simple.

Well yeah, it's a sick and terrible thing to do regardless of motivation. I think it's equally sick (but in different ways of course) for a Clinton supporter (to fake it) a Trump supporter (to harm a political target) OR a kook (to harm a random person) to do. Of course no adult should 'support this' in any case, I was (get this) joking when I said 'they deserve it' above. :-) a sign-trap that causes physical harm is not acceptable.

@5Cats and @Markus: Well, I think this thread is more or less played out. There seem to be some misunderstandings still going on, but it sounds like we're all in agreement that attaching razor blades or utility blades to political signs is sick behavior and not something any adult would do or condone. If that's agreed, I'm content.

Markust: it is clearly the 'mind of a sick' person who did this. Where did I say otherwise? Even if it was deliberate OR fake OR random? That's a given, yes? I then addressed the whys and wherefores of my belief that it WAS political (either way) and NOT random. You have no refutation, just a nit-picking negative Nancy? Why is defending or supporting MY belief 'slippery' but when others do it, that's OK with you? Why is that?

Squirlz told you he doesn't think this has much to do with politics and more toward some sick person wanting to inflict pain on others. Your response to him was, "I have never said otherwise." Even though in the comment directly above Squirlz' post that you were answering you did say otherwise by blaming it on the liberals, and then you said otherwise again right after you wrote that by blaming it on the liberals again. Do you not see why your slippery contortion act is so frustrating to people?

2: I was joking because the comment from RobTheLurker was (most likely) about the person (probably a pro-Trumper) who made the sign like that eh? He was calling the sign maker a psycho, but I was pretending he was talking about the person who tried to remove the sign. But yes: vandals and other criminals DO 'deserve what they get'. However? It is both illegal and dumb to make a 'deadly man-trap' because history shows us it most often harms the innocent, not the guilty! >>> All that being said, I strongly believe this is YET ANOTHER case of Dems faking it to blame Repubs for things they have nothing to do with. The damage on the hand looks nothing like I'd expect from that trap: it looks like someone cut themselves to fake it, decided it didn't look icky enough, then cut a few more times. The only reason to do that would be to falsely blame Trump supporters. This sort of thing happens a lot more often than actual Repub on Democrat violence, hence the need to make shit up! As they have many times in this and previous election cycles. There's dozens of cases of Dem on Repub attacks though, hundreds!

That is entirely possible Mr.Squrlz4, I have never said otherwise. It would be really easy (and inexpensive!) to rig this thing up. It could be done in a day, with no possible way to track it. However? To use a political sign generally means that politics is involved. Most 'deranged people' are not random; they have a target or outcome in mind, even if to us it's insane? It makes sense to them! So to place a random (no politics you said) trap in a random location and have it harm a random person? There's 100 other ways to do that which are even cheaper and easier AND cause way more damage. The linking thing between object, location and victim = politics. Election, voting, government, like that. What other motive, even an insane one, could there be? Think of crazy violent people; the Unibomber for example. He had specific (crazy) goals in mind, specific targets. >>>Not very many saboteurs are entirely random, and if they are? They set out LOTS of traps like this, not just one. In my opinions, of course.

I must be a glutton for punishment because I know nothing good will come of trying to engage you in a rational discussion on this topic. That said: (1) I don't think this event has much to do with politics, let alone Conservatives vs. Liberals. This is the action of a sick individual who had a desire to maim or injure someone. It makes not one iota of difference to me whether this was a Trump or Clinton sign. Some warped individual took great pains to use Gorilla Glue to adhere 10 utility knife blades to the bottom edge of a sign and then placed that sign in a position on public property where he knew someone would have to move it. That's a deranged act. (2) Resorting to booby-traps that are intended to injure or maim as a way to deter minor acts of vandalism isn't adult behavior. Sure, vandalism sucks. I hate it as much as anyone. But what I don't want is people wiring up explosives, razor blades, contact poisons or any other number of sick countermeasures in response, whether it's on their property or not. I can't believe you're cheering on this kind of behavior: "...fucking scum. They deserve what they get" (your words verbatim).

Oh, I didn't see the video until now, it was not on private property. My bad! But it sure looks like a 'false flag' to me. Who'd put the blades way out like that? Who picks up a sign by the bottom?? How did straight razors make tiny cuts on the insides (in betweens) of the fingers? And NO cuts on the parts of the hand that would have been used to try to pick the sign up? >>> Just like the lady who carved letters on her own face with a knife and tried to blame Republicans? This stinks of fake.
