Woman Steals Romney Campaign Signs From Richland and Adams Townships

Signs returned; no charges filed, according to police chief.

Two weeks before Election Day, a woman was spotted taking a Mitt Romney campaign sign from a yard in Richland Township.

A resident called police Oct. 23 after seeing her take the sign from his yard on Ridge Road; he provided them with the license plate number on the woman's vehicle, according to Northern Regional Police Chief T. Robert Amann.

Police stopped the woman's vehicle near the intersection of Bakerstown Road and Babcock Boulevard in Pine Township, he said on Friday.

The woman had no signs in her vehicle, but led police to her home on Linwood Drive, off Glasgow Road in the Valencia area of Richland Township, the chief said.

There she produced nine Romney campaign signs, including the one from Ridge Road, he said.

"She advised my officer that some were taken from Adams Township (along) Route 228," Amann said.

All were returned, the chief said.

The woman, whom Amann did not identify, was not charged.

Police have not received any other reports of signs being taken, he said.

Asked if the woman explained why she took the signs, Amann said no.

"One can only guess," he said.

What right does she have to deny those homeowners their freedom of expression??? You pay for those signs so she should be charged with theft!

If you vote for Obama ... Beware - there may be blood on your hands! In times past, God's people had no choice in regards to the laws that governed them. Ruled by kings (or sometimes judges or consuls), the Israelites had no choice other than to obey laws as they were decreed---or to rebel (risking their life doing so). Today we have different - but just as weighty - decisions! We hold in our hands the lives of millions of innocent children. As voters we are responsible for the laws that govern this land and for the elected officials we put into office. God's Word has made His opinions very clear on some issues. God has said that He is the Author of life---He is" the giver and the taker of life...." "For a Christian not to vote or not to vote upholding justice (God's laws) is therefore an act of rebellion against God. Voting for a politician or a political party that advocates ending a life that God has begun means that YOU have made abortion the law of the land and have chosen a government in direct opposition to God. The blood of each and every one of these innocent children is on the hands of those who vote(d) for abortion and abortion advocates! Forty plus million helpless little children have been murdered because many have chosen to do nothing. May God have mercy on us! Let's ask for His forgiveness and repent ... That is - to do what is right from here on out - If your a Catholic a Protestant a Mormon or a Jew - Save the Life of the Unborn!

The laws never force anyone to have an abortion if they do not believe in it. If only there was as much concern to these kids after they are born........
