"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Finger slipped again

I wouldn't be able to refrain myself as well as you do. I would have called him a lot worse.

It's hard to tell if there's only one  but not hard to tell the objective. 

The incident happened at an interesting  time.

For several weeks, candidates had been busy plastering public property  with private property.,

Some went so far as to suggest  additional police should be scheduled at greater public expense to protect  the private property set out  in display on public property.

Some vigilantes formed a posse and rode out in dark of night to catch the blighters but failed to obtain a license  number thereby missing out on opportunity to provide information to support a charge or multiple charges.

Feelings of outrage were so high, no doubt they too felt jail time would not be too harsh a penalty for  miscreants within our midst.

It's a good thing stupidity isn't an offense against social order.

Wait a minute...what did I just say?

I did notice an absence of any charges in relation to the theft/damage of signs but put it down to the usual because I am sure it happens all the time in other places. I did not even read about charges anywhere in the Region.

I can see being initially " outraged ' but a person who is a spokesman for an organization should know better that to make statements like that before cooling off.

We saw the same thing during the election. People came out with totally inappropriate comments and thought that the # of visits to their sites were in support. Most have shut down.
