An Indiana man who was targeted for the Donald Trump poster he had erected in his front yard decided to take a stand against any future thieves who didn’t share his political inclinations – by booby trapping the sign.
The Indianapolis man, who wanted to only be identified as Phillip, said passers-by had twice tried to steal the sign in the last month, and so he took matters into his own hands.
He jerry-rigged the sign with fishing wire that had been painted green and put up a video camera on a nearby tree, ready to catch the next thief. Or at least their attempt.
That moment came at the weekend, when a woman tried to quickly grab the sign and make a run for it.
As she heads off, all while caught on camera, the signs were yanked back into place by the fishing line, causing the woman to fall forward on her face, WRTV reported.
She then ran off without the sign, which remained fixed in place.
Phillip says that people don’t have to agree with his political beliefs, however they do have to respect his right to support whichever presidential candidate he wants.
‘Whether it’s a Bernie or Hillary or a Trump sign, you might disagree with whatever the politics are, but it’s not yours,’ Phillip said.
‘Leave it alone.’
