A NYfirearms.com member has multiple Repeal SAFE Act signs stolen from his yard...

He suspects a busybody neighbor who called the town to complain about the sign. Posts on the local NYfirearms forum to talk about how his signs are being stolen. Donations pour in to pay for a trail cam... Thief is caught! But who it is turns out to be unexpected.... The best part is that charges are being pressed. ;)

so , remember my repeal the safe act sign issue.... - Page 19


Here is the sign.

If that's official police business, I'd say there's room for some budget savings in that town. Of course, that won't begin to offset the potential legal fees and/or settlement.

Don't like what I see... but...unless privately owned and maintained road, city easement rules apply, 8 feet back where I live. If private, the officer has some explaining to do!

:roflmao:

If that officer was following orders from superiors, I pray he doesn't try to protect them.

I do actually appreciate police and like having them around. This on the other hand should go viral.... They should have at least talked to the owner.

You certainly have a point, there are laws like that everywhere.

However, if the homeowner was in violation of a law or ordinance, how come the police officer didn't write the homeowner a citation and a fine?

How come the police officer decided to destroy and then steal the sign off the property--not once but multiple times? Did the police officer act on his own or following the orders of a superior?

It was on city property but the sign owner was given verbal permission from a city planner (which don't mean squat if it's not in writing). Bottom line...other signs were left intact so it's obvious his sign was targeted for its content. Whether or not it was under PD orders or the officer was acting alone, even if they had the right to remove it, the officer got too much enjoyment out of removing the sign and taking it multiple times. Luckily not all cops are as petty as this individual...

All valid questions...I can only write as to local laws where I am. Not knowing the complete history of neighborhood complaints, if any, and a LEO being involved raises many unanswered questions I have.
On the surface this looks like a gun grabber hateful act. I would set the sign back or hang from a tree and see what happens next What further details have you found out?....Let us know..

I'm not sure exactly what it is, but I think there is something rotten going on here. I don't know any details beyond what is written in the NY state forum which has exploded in posts since this first became public knowledge a few days or two ago.

As a former resident of New York, I hope the citizenry remaining there can find some justice.

Something rotten indeed! The Northeast has been through hell and it just doesn't seem to ever stop. The citizens deserve, at the very least, justice and fair representation.
