A man in Chapel Hill, North Carolina was sick of someone constantly stealing his McCain-Palin yard signs. So the electrical engineer wired up a shocking surprise for the next person who came along, according to the Raleigh-Durham News & Observer.

So, the parent of this 9 year old comes and complains about the son who was caught trying to steal property from the neighbor. Whatever happened to shame and embarrassment in this country? I would have had that boy’s hide for his bad behavior, but then this says more about the parents acceptance of this kind of behavior as well as the boys...

Likely encouraged by the parent to steal the sign in the first place. What 9 year old knows or cares a whit about the elections? Honestly....?

The boy’s father is upset? He should be ashamed of himself for telling his son to steal the sign.

It’s not that the kid’s parents accepted the behavior. They clearly told him to do it. The parents identity should be made public.

I believe that, what 9-year old would waste his time stealing political signs? They should electrocute the parents.

What a nation of snivelers and malcontents we’ve become. You know the stupid kid probably got about 6 millivolts. My dfad would have laughed at me and made me apologize to the neighbor.

I have know sympathy for the little twerp.

Every couple of days for the last three weeks someone has been taking down my signs and putting them in the bushes.

I just keep putting them back up again. But it is really annoying.

My kids have asked if they can knock over the few Obama signs in the area, and I have firmly told them ‘NO!’ and explained why.

I would love it if the county would set up four signs (two McCain and two Obama) in remote locations, with hidden cameras. And then catch and prosecute these jerks, with photos in the local paper.

The original posting I saw on this had the parent claiming that the child just wanted to see how the sign was put together. From the video which is now available, it seems that he could have found that out by looking at the Obama sign in his hand. Dems: they know no limits, no boundaries, never heard of class or good taste or morals.

My question as well.

No normal 9 years gets the idea to steal a political sign from a neighboring yard night after night. The parent had to have instructed the kid to do so.

Agreed, as evidenced by the fact that the kid told his loser-father that he had been shocked. "Hey Junior, why is that McCain sign still up?" "Honest Pop, I went over like you told me but I got zapped."

When I was a kid if I had told my dad I got zapped in the neighbors yard he'd have asked me why i was there then spanked me to boot.

Please, all McCain sign posters, HOOK YOUR SIGNS UP TO AN ELECTRIC FENCE TRANSFORMER. You can’t be sued by idiots who touch your electric fence, so you shouldn’t have problems with a sign.

Teach these idiot liberals and their indoctrinated youth a lesson.

Not only that, but where on earth would a nine year old kid get an Obama sign to put in the place of the McCain sign, if his father didn’t give it to him?

He might vandalize a sign, but he certainly wouldn’t go out and replace it.

It was a dog fence, for goodness sake, it’s not like he gave the kid a real jolt.
Bet that kid won’t do that again.

A short time later, a neighbor came to Turschak's house and complained his 9-year-old son had been "electrocuted" in his yard.

Next time don't exploit your kid by forcing him to commit a crime for your twisted views. Quite honestly, I think someone should call CPS on the parent of that 9 year old.

Someone should point out to the kid that the only way to defeat the electrification is by urinating on the sign

You hit a nerve with me. Regarding the “shame and embarrassment” comment. I have told many people that the biggest change I have seen since when I was very young to now is that nothing has changed much - people still lie, steal, have premarital sex, and sin, in general (in other words, “nothing new under the sun” as stated in Ecclesiastes); BUT... people now have no shame or embarrassment or sense of decency about their wrongs - they do it shamelessly and blatantly. This is a problem. Of course, we all do bad things but having a conscience and feeling remorse or a sense of shame, which are all healthy, seem to be lacking greatly these days.

And, of course, you hit on another point. The boy’s parents are exactly why this kid is messed up at age 9. Obviously, he’s modeling the bad behavior before him.

The parent/s of the little rugrat should be charged with child endangerment, child neglect, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, to name just a few ideas off the top of my head.

Capt. James Nida of the Orange County Sheriff's Department says he doesn't plan to file charges.

He should be filing charges, just not against the sign owner.

I doubt the boy thought up the idea of stealing and replacing the sign on his own and came up with the Obama sign on his own.

The father should be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and the boy and father should be told to keep off of his property or they will be arrested for criminal trespass.

I believe I would have told the guy that I just tried to wire up my sign so that it would light up, and must have done it incorrectly. Then asked him what his kid was doing in my yard messing with my sign.

The real tragedy is the home owner will probably get sued by the maggot of a father and a liberal jury and judge will award him everything the guy has but his soul.
