    Ever since Donald Trump first announced his candidacy, and yard signs for his primary run began to be placed in supporter's yards, there have been numerous cases of vandalism/theft of those signs. In addition to signs being stolen, reports have also surfaced of people's cars being vandalized for having Trump bumper stickers supporting the Republican presidential candidate. In fact, one voter even set booby traps around his Trump signs because they were constantly being stolen. The latest theft comes from an employee of WOW Pool & Lawn, a company that offers home care services in Naples, Florida, who apparently on...

    Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein said she vandalized a bulldozer at an anti-oil protest earlier this week to show solidarity with those working to rescue the planet from global warming. Stein told a crowd at the Metropolitan Community College’s Fort Omaha campus Thursday that she had no other choice but to spray paint the words “I approve this message” on a bulldozer blade at the protest. She said she did it because the Native American protesters asked her to. “I felt like it was the least I could do in front of these Indian leaders, as they were putting...

    CAPE KIWANDA, Ore. — For years and years, the sandstone pedestal on the Oregon coast was a tourist attraction, a perfect photo-op for its uncanny likeness to a duck’s bill. So when officials found the beloved 7-foot-tall formation at Cape Kiwanda broken into a million pieces, they initially thought age and gravity had done it in. But then a video emerged that pointed to the true culprit: Vandals. More specifically, a group of people who crossed into the roped-off area and pushed and shoved the rock until it toppled over. Now, the search is on for the offenders.

    When the iconic sandstone formation known as "the duckbill" collapsed, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department wasn't suspicious. Erosion happens. Rocks fall. The stretch of cliff where the formation was located, in Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area, was so unstable it was fenced off to keep visitors away. There seemed to be no mystery: The 7- by 10-foot pedestal on the coast probably collapsed on its own. Then a man named David Kalas said it wasn't time and weather that brought down the rock. It was vandals. And he had video. Kalas told The Oregonian that when he saw a...

The couple moved to the Big Island in 1984 from Houston, in part to get away from the poor air quality there and also in hope of finding a place to grow their own food. They found what they were looking for in Hawi. “It was wonderful compared to what it was like...

    On the way back to the Olympic Village, we pulled into a convenience store to use the restroom. There was no restroom inside, so we foolishly relieved ourselves on the backside of the building behind some bushes. There was a locked door out back and I did not witness anyone breaking it open. I am unsure why, but while we were in that area, Ryan pulled to the ground a framed metal advertisement that was loosely anchored to the brick wall. I then suggested to everyone that we needed to leave the area and we returned to the taxi.

    It’s not just Donald Trump himself who can spark controversy. A McKinney homeowner learned even campaign signs for the Republican nominee can turn a quiet neighborhood into a political hotbed. The homeowner said she never planned for her yard to look like the way it does with giant Trump signs even on her roof. She says she started with a couple of small lawn signs, but after repeated vandalism, this was her answer. When you post giant signs outside your home, you can’t expect everyone to like them. “Go home. We’re building a wall. And I’m going to help,” Kimberly...

    A Yale University employee is out of a job, and the school is out a window, after he used a broomstick to smash a stained-glass window he complained was racist. Until recently, Thomas Menafee worked as a dishwasher for Yale. But he says he grew enraged that, while working at Yale’s Calhoun College, he had to see a stained glass window which shows black laborers harvesting cotton. The window, he said, was an offensive portrayal of slavery, and so on June 13 he impulsively decided to eliminate it by force. “I took a broomstick, and it was kind of high,...

    A church marquee that displayed a message disagreeing with the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on same-sex marriage was spray-painted with graffiti this weekend.

The vandals, said to number between 40 and 50, sprinted down the store’s main aisle about 1:50...

He owns nightclubs in Paris and New York, works as a top editor of the men's fashion magazine L'Officiel Hommes and has appeared in countless glossy magazines as a tastemaker and bon vivant.

Since then, Saraiva, who lives in France and is known by his fans as Mr. Andre and Mr. A., has been scorned by American nature lovers and thrust into a highly charged...

Some of the church windows had been smashed, flowers were uprooted and parking signs were ripped out the ground. The hood of the church bus was scratched as if it had been keyed, and a sign was shoved through the front grill. A number of messages were also spray painted...
