Cops tell resident to ditch (No on 8) sign

Two police officers knocked on the door of a Menlo Park resident yesterday morning and told her to remove her yard sign against Prop. 8, the same-sex marriage ban.

Teresa Ryals told the Post that the officers were "very apologetic" but said the sign on Central Avenue must be removed immediately.

Police were acting on a complaint received by the office of City Manager Glenn Rojas. An anonymous caller complained the sign, which said "Vote no on Proposition 8 -- it's unfair and wrong," was still standing in the Ryals' yard two months after the election.

The officers visited two other homes in the Central and Laurel neighborhood, also asking that their signs be taken down, according to Menlo Park Police spokeswoman Nicole Acker. ... Acker did not know if the code section had been enforced after previous elections.
