Letter to the Editor
Obama sign destruction limits freedom of speech

November 07, 2012

Dear Editor,

I live on Main Street in Clarkston Village. Today I came home to find that my "Obama" sign was stolen from my front yard.

It was damaged on three other occasions when I found it smashed, ripped out of the ground and kicked the foot print was still visable. What kind of town is this where its citizenship feels empowered to literally stomp on the freedom of speech?

My sign did not display any disrespectful language. It had the names of our elected president and vice president on it.

I have lived in the heart of KKK territory in Indiana and even there this type of behavior is not tolerated.

I am shocked, sickened and angry. Mostly though, I am very disappointed.

Mary Beth Kellum
