Police in Taos, New Mexico have spent close to a month investigating a case where a man was allegedly beaten after removing political signs placed on his property without his permission.
Across the road, a candidate for District Court Judge Ernestina Cruz was holding an event, and supporters seemingly placed signs on the mans lawn to direct attendees where to go.
I told them I thought it was very distasteful to put these signs in front of my property, Roy Cunnyngham said, so he packed them in the car to return to their rightful owners.
At that point, a man allegedly crossed the street and told Cunnyngham to put the signs back where they were. When Cunnyngham refused, he says, the man pounded [him] in the chest.
Sgt. John Wentzs report elaborates: All of the sudden two more men showed up and started to hit and shove Mr. Cunnyngham.
Cunnynghams wife Joni also told police that she got out of the car to help, but someone held her from behind and kept her in place while the men beat her husband. The couples son was also shoved aside, and prevented from helping .
They just attacked him, all three of them, Joni recalled.
A doctor treated Cunnyngham for cuts and bruises, injuries to his mouth and a concussion, but his main concern is that a month later, the perpetrators still have not been brought to justice.

Did the shooter attempt to deescalate by fleeing. Did the shooter start the altercation? Is the attacker 6'4” and a karate expert or is she 14 with asthma? Is the Vic 88 and in a wheelchair, or a 22 year sprinter? There is no blanket, even in states with SYG Laws.
Just ask George Zimmermann!
...In his report, Wentz also said that Taos Police Lt. David Maggio was present at the meet and greet and told Wentz at the time that he wanted no part of the incident. He has since denied seeing any part of the alleged battery...
What about a 14 yr old female asthmatic karate expert?
