A Mistake They Made
I guess if somebody smashed the sign as form of political protest it would be ok right?

If it were me, I would post a sign offering cocktail umbrellas saying “An additional and equally effective layer of protection from the Butts County Sheriff” with a picture of falling meteors right next to the sheriff’s.

Sheriff said you can be prosecuted for removing the sign’s…..
Well it doesn’t say anything about defacing it So go buy a can of black spray paint or your favorite color and spray paint maybe the same color as your that it’ll match, there is another judge i forget where but he made the judgment that placing a sign like that because the case before him was about the Halloween signs in registrants yard.

The right of way issue is meaningless. There is right of way along most peoples properties. Placing the sign on one or other side the sidewalk is irrelevant.
However, from what I’m reading, you can simply tear down their sign as an act of legitimate protest, or place a sign immediately in front of theirs so as to completely obscure it.

Just remove the sign. End of story. Filing lawsuits is feckless in this contest.

I feel so bad for those guys, I hope that something like that doesn’t start spreading all over the country. The humiliation of having to live with a sign in your yard even for a day is horrendous. Is it possible to take this to higher courts and make it illegal?
