Woman Ordered to Take Down Pro-Trump Signs Would Rather Go to Jail Than Remove Them


Posted by Katherine Rodriguez | 21 Sep 2017

A Maine woman says she would rather risk jail time than take down her yard signs in support of President Trump after city officials said she had to remove them.

Officials from the city of Rockland told Susan Reitman, 75, that she had to take down her signs or face fines because the signs violate a local ordinance, the Daily Mail reported.

“I was shocked,” she said. “This is my freedom of speech. People have a right to voice their opinion.”

The signs, which hang over her front gate, read “I Love Trump” and “He Won, Get Over It.”

A code enforcement officer from the city told Reitman that, under the city ordinance, residents could only display one sign attached to a structure no larger than two square feet or one free-standing sign no larger than four square feet. Reitman’s signs violate the ordinance because she has two signs that are just over three feet by two feet, according to the officer. 

Officials say that if she does not remove her signs by Friday, she faces fines of $100 to $1,000 per day. The code enforcement officer added that another resident complained about the size of the signs.

Reitman, however, is not backing down. She told New England Cable News that she would neither pay the fines nor take her signs down.

“If I have to sit in jail for the rest of eternity, that’s my choice,” she said. “I guess I’m being stubborn … but I’m not going to back down from what I believe.”

Town officials say that residents can apply for permits to display signs larger than what the ordinance allows.  Reitman added that she was not aware of the ordinance and thinks city officials should change it to allow for political speech.

Rockland Assistant Code Enforcement Officer William Butler argues that his directive had nothing to do with the content of the signs.

“I admire your passion for our president. Truly, I do,” Butler wrote in a Monday email to Reitman, according to the Press Herald. “However, we have received a complaint, and I have to do my due diligence, and I have determined your signs are not in compliance with the Rockland Code.”

“It is your business what you put on the signs. It is the city’s business regarding the size and number of signs,” he added.

Butler reportedly did not mention any threat of jail time in his email to Reitman. 

The Herald reports that Reitman would only face jail time if she refused to follow a court order from a judge asking her to remove the signs. For that to happen, the city would have to file a land-use complaint in court.

(CNSNews.com) – Gary Harrington, the Oregon man convicted of collecting rainwater and snow runoff on his rural property surrendered Wednesday morning to begin serving his 30-day, jail sentence in Medford, Ore.

“I’m sacrificing my liberty so we can stand up as a country and stand for our liberty,” Harrington told a small crowd of people gathered outside of the Jackson County (Ore.) Jail.

Several people held signs that showed support for Harrington as he was taken inside the jail.

Harrington was found guilty two weeks ago of breaking a 1925 law for having, what state water managers called “three illegal reservoirs” on his property. He was convicted of nine misdemeanors, sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined over $1500 for collecting rainwater and snow runoff on his property.

The Oregon Water Resources Department, claims that Harrington has been violating the state’s water use law by diverting water from streams running into the Big Butte River.

But Harrington says he is not diverting the state’s water — merely collecting rainwater and snow melt that falls or flows on his own property.

Harrington has vowed to continue to fight the penalty, stating that the government has become “big bullies” and that “from here on in, I’m going to fight it.”

“They’ve just gotten to be big bullies and if you just lay over and die and give up, that just makes them bigger bullies,” Harrington said in an interview two weeks ago with CNSNews.com.

“We as Americans, we need to stand on our constitutional rights, on our rights as citizens and hang tough. This is a good country, we’ll prevail,” he said.

His release is expected in early September
