Lo­cal vi­o­lence by Trump fol­low­ers

Dorchester Star - - Regional -

In a re­cent let­ter, An­drew Shaw pre­sumed to know more about the de­struc­tion of Frank Lawlor’s Hil­lary Clin­ton sign than Frank him­self does. Shaw claims it had to be the wind and rot on the sign that caused it, and not Don­ald Trump’s Hil­lary-hat­ing-forces. He claims Frank “’found’ vil­lains where none ex­ist.”

I know Frank Lawlor, and have found him to be a scrupu­lously hon­est and hon­or­able man. I’m much more in­clined to be­lieve him than some­one who oc­ca­sion­ally drives by his drive­way, es­pe­cially given that he de­voted the rest of his let­ter to a hate­ful rant against Sec­re­tary Clin­ton.

I won­der if Mr. Shaw would think I “found vil­lains where none ex­ist” when two hate­filled Don­ald Trump thugs poured diesel fuel all over my lawn and set it on fire in a vi­o­lent act of ar­son to de­stroy my Clin­ton/Kaine and Chris Van Hollen signs on a windy night. My neigh­bor saw their pickup stop and the oc­cu­pants get out and torch my prop­erty. Hope­fully the Sher­iff has al­ready cuffed them and led them away.

It’s such a shame and ex­tremely danger­ous that Don­ald Trump has in­cited his ra­bid fol­low­ers to com­mit acts of hate and vi­o­lence on his be­half. I hope Sec­re­tary Clin­ton de­stroys him with a land­slide vic­tory on Novem­ber 8th to make Trump­ism dis­ap­pear from our coun­try once and for all. MIKE BROWN Cam­bridge
