Man Gives Trump Sign Thieves Dose Of Reality

A woman in Indianapolis attempted to steal a political yard sign, but it didn't work out for her very well. She apparently wasn't the first person who attempted to tear the sign down, so the home owner was ready for her.

Phillip, an Indianapolis resident, wanted to display a sign featuring his choice of candidate, but he had concerns. He was concerned for the same reason he's withholding his last name - he knew in the heated political climate, people may be driven to doing crazy things.

As it turned out, Phillip was right. A day after planting his lawn sign supporting Donald Trump he found it torn down and crumpled up on the ground.

Phillip was not deterred, however. He smoothed out the sign and, with the help of a little duct tape, replanted it. This time, he was ready for anyone trying to interfere with his freedom of expression. He rigged a camera to a tree and tied a string to the sign that he painted green so it would blend in with the grass.

The trap caught a rat - a woman ran up and grabbed Phillip's sign. She tried to run with it, but didn't realize it was tied to a string. When she reached the end of the line, the sign snapped back out of her hands so unexpectedly that she took a face plant on Phillip's front lawn.

Phillip doesn't care if people disagree with his politics, but he thinks they should respect his rights - and his property. “Whether it’s a Bernie or Hillary or a Trump sign, you might disagree with whatever the politics are, but it’s not yours. Leave it alone,” he tells ABC News.
