WANTED: Information leading to the arrest and conviction of the Sign Thrasher.
Liberal violence against conservative political free expression continues virtually unabated in Charlottesville and surrounding areas—and it appears to be intensifying in the days approaching the November 6 elections.
Caught on tape, and now featured in Charlottesville’s Most Wanted Episode 2, is the Sign Thrasher. This female suspect was filmed entering the Preston Avenue Shell mini-market shortly after 9 PM on September 25, 2012. Upon exiting the store, she moved her vehicle (likely a maroon, mid-90s Ford Explorer) in proximity to a 4 x 8 Romney/Ryan campaign sign posted on the Shell property. A female passenger exited the Explorer and attempted, without success, to topple the sign. The passenger then summoned the Sign Thrasher, whose efforts quickly upended the placard.
Notably, this suspect was spotted taking advantage of the $1.84/gallon “Gas Can Man” event held earlier that day at this same location.
The owners of the sign wish to press charges against the suspect Sign Thrasher. Can you identify her?
If so, political activist, Steve Peters is offering the following reward: A tankful of gas (not to exceed $100) to the first person who successfully identifies the individual or individuals that are then charged with and convicted of the crime shown in the video.
A reward for the identity of the Sign Stealer, featured in the inaugural edition of Charlottesville’s Most Wanted, remains unclaimed. View that suspect here.
Determination of the reward recipient, if any, will be at the sole discretion of Steve Peters. Entries may be submitted via email to email@example.com or by phone to The Schilling Show Hotline, (424) 218-2349. All tipsters will remain anonymous.
