Political signage graffiti

People who deface and place graffiti on road side political posters are not only committing acts of criminal damage but also show they lack integrity, common decency and are disrespectful. In my opinion the perpetrators are an extremist element of our community and complete “nut jobs.” It is not liked, it is frowned upon, cowardly and it is not needed in our democratic society.

No matter what your political persuasion is, all political candidates deserve a fair go. Many of them have the right reasons to seek representation of their community, contribute to public debate and make sincere efforts to make a positive and significant contribution to the lives of the citizens of the Nations Capital.

For my part if I witness such acts of unwanted vandalism I will report them to the police with their photograph and vehicle number plate. My advice to perpetrators, seek help before you get a criminal record.
