3 Republican Douhcebags busted in Orlando for stealing Obama signs and yelling racial slurs.

Take a look a this story. stealing Stop Signs as well.

Oh---and throw in the fact the driver was 2 times over the legal limit for alcohol.

<snip>
The signs were sticking out of the bed of his pickup, video shows. They included two stop signs, a street sign from Lee Avenue and Citrus Street, a day care loading-zone sign, the Lynx sign and a mailbox, according to the report.

Kupp was arrested about 1:30 a.m. on charges of DUI and grand theft after a breath machine measured his blood-alcohol level at .202 2.5 times the legal limit. Kupp, whom a trooper stopped at Gore Street and Parramore Avenue, said he and his friends had come from Stagger Inn bar in downtown Orlando.

David Hatmaker, 23, and Austin Bowen, 22, both of Orlando, were arrested on grand-theft charges. Hatmaker told the trooper the trio was upset because President Barack Obama had been re-elected. Callers complained to Orlando police that the men were hollering racial slurs at pedestrians, according to the report.

Sgt. Kim Montes, a Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman, said stealing stop signs is extremely dangerous. In 1997, three people were sentenced to 15 years in prison each for removing a stop sign at a Tampa intersection, leading to the deaths of three teenagers whose car was hit by an 8-ton truck.

"It's Russian roulette if a car is coming the other way," Montes said.

6. funny thing about boston

I'm still in Winter Park not leaving if I can help it, kids are in college now. But the Boston thing is my son marches with the Boston Crusaders (5th year - he ages out this year). Actually The Boston Crusaders really should change their name to the Mostly Central Florida Boston Crusaders as half the Corp is from here and all but one of their camps are held here.

8. I remember this case

"In 1997, three people were sentenced to 15 years in prison each for removing a stop sign at a Tampa intersection, leading to the deaths of three teenagers whose car was hit by an 8-ton truck."

They were initially sentenced to 30 years, so the sentences must have been reduced. That was a tragedy all around.

9. "Damn Soshullist Stop Signs!



And Daycare Loading Signs!

Why do my tax dollars have to support signs that make me stop? What if I don't wanna stop?

I should be able to decide when and where I want to stop, dammit! And if people want other people to know where their street is, they can post the name of the street on their OWN property at their OWN expense.

Damn nanny state.....*brip* ....now pass me another beer, Ned."

12. They MIGHT even be watching SESAME STREET - OOOOOHHH NOOOOOO!!!

 

Bert and Ernie are gay, Big Bird's a socialist, Elmo's, well, Elmo, Prarie Dawn couldn't get a job on FOX to save her, Cookie Monster expects handouts, The Count can do math, Kermit's a frog, Miss Piggy hasn't been turned into bacon yet, and Oscar is the only one on the show that appreciates the GOP trash!!!

And on TOP of all of that - the show TEACHES STUFF TO KIDS!!! They might grow up to be Democrats!!!

That's like eating catfish! He lives in a trash can!

But then again, if I steal street signs, I'd probably like the garbagy-essence of Oscar.
