Booby-trapped Trump sign injures worker
Sign lined with razor blades placed in township right-of-way sends Michigan man to the hospital for 13 stitches.
political signs are everywhere right now, but in Commerce Township they can't be in the right of way, meaning no closer than 33 ft from the center of the road. Hey, workers stopped to remove two signs that were 9 ft to close On sleep road. He pulled over, reached down to grab it. I think you just flip it up in the back of the truck. He actually thought it was electrified. He jumped and let go of it. Looked at his hand, realized he's bleeding aggressively. The signs were lined with razor blades. Very angry, very upset. Why would someone set a booby trap signed toe harm someone you know a child could have picked it up. Township supervisor Dave Scott says the man drove himself to the hospital, where he needed 13 stitches in his fingers. The Onley reason you would put razor blades on there is with the intent to hurt somebody. The homeowner didn't want to go on camera, but she told me she's had several Trump signs stolen, including a large banner. She told me what she told the Oakland County sheriff's deputies that the signs in question also disappeared recently, but were returned, and she knew nothing of any razor blades. I think that is absolutely terrible. It's really, really too bad that someone would go to that length. Thio protect a Political Sign Neighbors believe all the hateful politics has gone much too far. I'm actually really surprised because I would think that that's what a democracy is all about is everyone has their own opinions and their own thoughts on which way they want to vote. The township says it will seek legal action against that homeowner for the injuries to that worker. As for any possible criminal charges, well, the investigation continues into that in Commerce Sounds of Jason Coulter, Local four.
