Nine Year Old Boy Gets Zapped Trying To Steal McCain Sign


www.miamiherald.com

CHAPEL HILL - After Shawn Turschak saw two sets of McCain-Palin signs disappear from his yard within hours of being planted, he took steps to protect the latest pair.

On Monday, he ran wires from his house and hooked the signs into a power source for an electric pet fence. Then he mounted a surveillance camera in a nearby tree and wired it to a digital recorder.

Tuesday afternoon, the camera saw this:

...Link With Video

What kind of parent would defend his kid for stealing?

Must be a different world we are living in.
My Dad, and most of yours, would probably tell me I deserved what I got.

I know people are getting involved in politics at a much younger age, but this kid should be preparing for Halloween or something, not going out and stealing signs.

What's next, keying cars perhaps?

The kid got what he deserved! Its not like a taser or anything, just a little bite. Serves him right.

Maybe the parent put him up to it??

It is against McCain it is ok! Just like the vandals that were shot for destroying private property in the name of the Mesiah Obama.

When parents make excuses for their children's actions, they are really making excuses for their own bad parenting. I would have gotten an ass whooping for stealing anything. I am glad that I will be dead before this young man's generation gets their chance to lead the country.

Ahaha that is hilarious.


That kid deserved what he got, and his idiot father should be arrested because he was most likely the one who put the little crook up to it.


Of course they will demonize this man for protecting his own property, as usual per the liberal media. The kid would have never gotten shocked if he hadn't been trespassing and commiting a crime on his neighbors property.

It's completely wrong to interfere in another person's right to express themself. I don't agree with electrifying signs but hopefully a story like this will make that unnecessary.

Rocker Frampton fuming over stolen Obama signs

Maybe Peter Frampton should do what this guy did? He's already said he was going to put up a video camera. Now he just needs a little voltage.

This is what happens when our parents and teachers trash talk politicaly around children that should not be privy to the propaganda. Kid got what he deserved for trying to switch the signs, but his parents and teachers are the real culprits!

Why not electrify your signs? If it's not your dont touch it.

If that was me my father would have laughed at me for being an idiot and probably thanked the guy for teaching me a lesson. Politics never would have come up. He would have assumed I was being stupid and pulling some Halloween type prank or something like that.

Stupid kid got what was coming to him and is lucky the owner didnt think something more was going on and shot him.

Hillarious, I agree with the people who were actually raised properly here. My parents would have laughed at me and then grounded me at least for such actions regardless of the politics behind it. I'm glad someone posted a link with a video at least we know what the miscreant looks like, now I just wish we could see his parents so we can know who the horrible parents who are raising this heathen are.

Good. He got what he deserved. Plain and simply. Don't want to get a nice shock? DON'T take what isn't yours. Its actually a pretty simple concept.

I rather he teach the kid a lesson then video tape the thing and bring up the 9 year old on charges of theft and tresspassing. Seems like everyone runs straight to the law these days, regardless of how serious it is. I'm glad this guy used his head and decided this incident could be handled without the law.

Wasn't it the kids parents that got the law involved, that's what I got out of the articles? That's also why I would like to say that the kid's parents are most likely horrible people. Not only did they most likely encourage their child to engage in criminal behavior, the kid's father accosted the 13yr old daughter of the sign owner. I'd have loved to have been the deputy that responded. Only one person attempted to commit a crime and it wasn't the property owner with the sign.

The kid got exactly what he deserved,he should just feel lucky it was only a shocker fence

Priceless!



I agree with a lot of others here about the kids father as well. If that were me when I was younger, I would have been told I got what I deserved, and then maybe a little extra "incentive" to never do it again.

I have read all the articals and seen the video pertaining to this incident I can quite honestly say the owner of those signs seriously needs to consider one thing.

Ramp the power up and put the next vandal on their a$$

The kid should be charged with trespassing and attempted theft.

His parents should be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

I'm with the others on this post who said that their parents would have laughed at them or told them they got what they deserved.

I have no tolerance for vandals of any political persuasion.

Electrocuting them now saves the state from having to do it 10 years from now.

It's just good planning.

heh heh


I saw this the other day. If it was me, I would have been given some tough love.

If it was my kid . . . I would have told him to go try again later on. You know . . . maybe he might have turned it off *fingers crossed that he left it on* and then given him some tough love


lol

After my dad picked himself up off the floor from laughing so hard, then I would have gotten my butt busted....
