It never ceases to amaze me how far New York politicians and "gun control" advocates will go to try and stifle the Pro-Second Amendment crowd. Whether by trying to stop second amendment supporters from protesting, or passing bills like the "Safe Act" in the middle of the night. New York politicians have been feeling the heat from citizens, veterans, and some of New York's retired police officers as well.
A man in Somers, N.Y., hatched a plan to catch the individual responsible for allegedly stealing his pro-gun signs repeatedly from his front yard. He bought a trail cam, set it up near the sign — and then waited.
When he learned that his sign had been taken yet again, he was elated because he knew he had finally caught the person responsible on camera.
The Blaze Stated:
Assuming the photos are entirely authentic, a police officer with the Somers Police Department appears to have been caught on camera ripping the sign, which reads: “Protect the Second Amendment,” from the man’s front yard. It wasn’t immediately clear if the police officer had removed the sign previously, or if the action was ordered by Somers PD.
TheBlaze has left messages with the Somers Police Department as well as the man who claims his signs were removed from his property on multiple occasions.
Can you imagine the surprise and shock of this law abiding citizen when he found out it wasn't a "protester" or a "criminal" but a police officer in full uniform caught on camera trespassing, destroying, and stealing private property? I have the hope that this officer will be charged with trespassing, destruction of private property, theft, and violating 1st and 4th amendment rights.
Whether this officer is charged or not this should be a lesson to ALL corrupt police officers across the nation, you are not the only ones with cameras or surveillance. We the people will hold you accountable by exposing your illegal actions. I hope the law abiding citizen who was victimized by this officer sues this officer and the police department as well (if they refuse to press charges against him).
