State Troopers Hurting Home Sales?

Okay, this is a weird one. I was out driving this weekend and stopped at a light when I noticed a State Trooper pulled over with his lights flashing. I thought he had pulled somebody over but that wasn't it. The next thing I notice, he is pulling up and stomping down on signs that were posted in the median.

That was weird.

At first I thought maybe they were political signs... maybe a Republican tearing down Democrat signs or a "Billary" fan taking down some Obama signs. Needless to say, I had to drive slow as I passed to see what it was.

Okay, this was really weird. This State Trooper was taking down "Home for Sale" signs. Oddly enough though, he was systematic about it. He didn't take down all of the signs, just the ones he "wanted" to. He left up all of the signs for Ryland Homes and took down everything else.

My wife was with me so I pointed it out and oddly enough she told me that she had seen a State Trooper doing the same thing a week ago.

That was really odd.

I don't know, maybe I am missing something. Do you have to get a permit to post a "For Sale" sign when selling a house? The signs the State Trooper tore down were for other Housing Sub-Divisions (builders) just like Ryland and not for individuals trying to sell their home.

Again, maybe I'm missing something but you should have seen this guy, he stomped down those signs like he was pissed... as if maybe someone in his family worked for Ryland homes.

Very odd... has anyone else seen this or can add anything to this?

The only thing I can think of is that some of the advertisers have permits while others don't, and the police do what they are told.
