It Begins… Far Left Thugs Beat Homeowner For Not Allowing Dem’s Signs In His Yard

Support Democrat Ernestina Cruz.

Or get a concussion.
Your choice.

The homeowner would not support Democrat judicial candidate Ernestina R. Cruz in Taos.
So they beat him bloody.

Officials with the Taos Police Department say they are still working to get to the bottom of the alleged beating of a Taos landowner over the removal of political signs from in front of his property.

In an interview with The Taos News Friday (May 25), property owner Roy Cunnyngham and his wife Joni recounted the events when they returned home, across from Casa los Córdovas May 1.

“I don’t know how many people hit me,” Cunnyngham said of the incident.

According to the police report filed the same day, Eighth Judicial District Court judge candidate Ernestina Cruz was having a “meet and greet” event at Plaza de Colores. At the same time, across the street, Cunnyngham and his wife were returning home from dinner to find several of Cruz’ campaign signs in front of his property.

As in the police report, Cunnyngham confirmed that three men approached him and demanded that he replace the signs where they’d been staked. Cunnyngham said he resisted.

“We were setting them in the car and we’d planned to call whoever they belonged to,” Cunnyngham said. “I told them I thought it was very distasteful to put these signs in front of my property.”

At that point, a younger man came across the street and again told Cunnyngham to put the signs back. When Cunnyngham refused, the man “pounded me in the chest,” Cunnyngham said.

While Cunnyngham says he knows a few of the people involved, The Taos News’ policy is not to identify alleged offenders until they have been charged or implicated by law enforcement.

At the time of the incident, Cruz denied having any knowledge of anyone involved in the incident, saying that it was “unfortunate” that Cunnyngham removed signs that “did not belong to him.”

What followed was far from a fair fight, the Cunnynghams say. Cunnyngham was later checked out by a doctor who treated him for cuts and bruises, injuries to his mouth and a concussion, Cunnyngham said.

“They just attacked him, all three of them,” Joni Cunnyngham said. “Someone was keeping me and my son from getting to them.”

    This actually was spoken by someone wanting to be a district court judge.Removing signs is illegal because they do not belong to the property owner?

    If attacked on your own property is it justified to use lethal force to defend oneself in Taos?

  • CV1

    The thugs are definitely wrong for getting violent and, perhaps, the signs should not have been there. However, the headline says “signs in his yard”. The text of the story twice says the signs were “in front of his property”…key words being “in front of”. That’s not clear enough for me to discern that the signs were posted legally. Maybe they weren’t even on the couple’s property and were legal.

    Regardless, violence in this situation is childish.

  • I’d put up the signs. And then I’d make sure that they were properly defaced……

  • Gary

    I went through something similar with a real estate agent advertising the adjacent property with signs in my yard. He obviously didn’t know where the property marker was. I moved the signs to the next property several times, but kept coming home from work to find them right back on my property. Finally, I cut the signs up into little chips and dumped the pile on the next property. That was the end of it.

  • Gary

    On a second note, I way past sick and tired of politicians calling things “unfortunate” and “disappointing”.

    I hope I someday get the chance to ask somebody like this genius why “unfortunate” was the best word to describe this situation. Whose fortune is she referring to when she calls it “unfortunate”. Shouldn’t “unfortunate” be left to acts of nature/God/whatever is out of our control?

    It’s the mealy-mouthed language of the left, and it’s sickening.

    If the signs were on the parking strip in front of his house then he had the right to remove them. Regardless of whether he had that right or not, the felony assault by the three thugs should get them some time in jail and a felony conviction.

    At least in a state that respects the rule of law. NM is rather blue, right? Then there is no chance of any legal repercussions.

  • edward1960

    We used to have a corner lot with a fair amount of traffic. So it was constant battle to keep unasked for political (and other signs) out of the corner. The city attorney told me that it was possible that I could be charged with violating 1st amendment rights if I removed them or ticketed if there was “undue” clutter on the terrace corner. So I called the various campaigns, those that were polite and offered to remove them I let stay. Those campaigns that got “snarky” the signs were removed (one was a nice large masonite board that cut up and recycled into some storage boxes).

  • bobdog

    Cruz said ‘…it was “unfortunate” that Cunnyngham removed signs that “did not belong to him.”’

    On property that did not belong to her. No comment whatsoever condemning assault and battery on the homeowner. That’s at least 6 felony counts she chooses to ignore, not including trespassing.

    And this fool is running to become a judge?

  • retire05

    If the signs were on his property, he had the right to remove them and throw them in the trash, if he so desired. If the signs were on Taos city easement in front of his house, it is illegal to place campaign signs on public property, and he should have called the police to have them removed. So the onus falls on the candidate to make it clear to her campaign workers that her campaign signs CANNOT be placed on public property.

    I hope he presses charges not only against the thugs that beat him, but against the Ernesta Cruz campaign, as well.

  • edward1960

    BTW the most disturbing thing about this story is the comment from the Judge “wannabe”. She (or her surrogates) can do what she likes with his property, but he is due a beating for destroying hers?

    Wrong, wrong, wrong…… Did she have Obama as a “professor”? a first year law student (a failing one at that) could do better and she thinks she’s judge material?

  • retire05

    Edward1960, you city attorney is an idiot. Campaign signs cannot be placed on private property without the approval of the property owner. And campaign signs cannot be placed on a public easement, although that easement adjoins private property.

  • Constance Ruffalino

    When dealing with leftists and their hanger-ons such as the welfare class (esp. when it involves members of the left’s “favored” minorities), following the Derbyshire Rules,

    is good policy. Basically you need to pick your fights.

    Here this homeowner should have used a little more common sense. He should have seen that something was going on across the street and have made the causal connection between it and the signs. Just wait it out. There is no sense in needlessly seeking confrontation, esp. when the left is involved. Like their totalitarian soulmates, the Muslims, the left regularly employs force.

    The issue of whether he had the right to remove the signs should not enter into the conversation. He was assaulted by a gang of thugs supporting the candidate.

    This candidate for judge shows no compassion for the victim of her supporters’ brutality, in fact implies that he was at fault for removing the signs.

    She is unfit for the office.

    No they don’t, but a little clarification on the posting would have been nice. If the signage was actually pushed into the ground on the victim’s property, then he was within his rights to remove them. If not, there could be some question about what exactly he could do if he disagreed with the display. Either way, being assaulted over it was rather inappropriate, to put it mildly.

  • Daisy

    The worst case (in Chicagoland) was at a friend’s home – she had a 6′ wooden fence between her yard and one of the busiest intersections. The D campaign workers DRILLED HOLES and mounted a sign.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and ONLY into White countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilation unquoted with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY White country and ONLY White countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country and ONLY into Black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
    And how long would it take any sane Black man to notice this and what kind of psycho Black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a NaziWhoWantsToKillSixMillionJews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    “Anti-racist is a code word for Anti-White.”

  • Dwayne the canoe guy

    In Oklahoma City it is illegal to place campaign signs on the public right-of-way (a law that is never enforced) but it is also illegal to remove illegally placed signs on the right-of-way ( law only enforced if a cop sees you doing it) . I used to ‘patrol’ a one mile section of public road near my house. One year I picked up over 300 signs and finally a cop saw me picking them up. He said I could either put them back or get a ticket for each one. I opened my trunk and showed him how many I had and that I had hundreds more at home.

    I explained that I would be more than happy to put them all back, but since I was such a threat to free speech, he would probably have to supervise me putting them back, just to be sure I didn’t run off.

    He shrugged and said, “I’m just enforcing the dumb-ass law. How about you put one back and we’ll call it even?”

    I shoved one back into the ground and we parted friends.

    Since then I have realized that it’s a losing battle, I have better things to do with my time, and the city picks them up a week after the election (a complete waste of our tax $$)

  • Winston O’Boogie

    At the time of the incident, Cruz denied having any knowledge of anyone involved in the incident, saying that it was “unfortunate” that Cunnyngham removed signs that “did not belong to him.”

    Idiot woman, this was either on HIS property or on public property where signs are not permitted. You have no business sitting on the bench if you cannot immediately discern this. Second point – the crime in this matter is the assault, not the removal of the signs. If you do not care to note that your supporters were wrong in their actions, then you stand for lawlessness and injustice. Again good reason you should not be on the bench.

    As for the homeowner – better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. >.40 cal is pretty effective in stopping animals, varmints and vermin of any size. Next time, be prepared. Stay on your property and as soon as they set foot on your property draw, warn and shoot to kill. It won’t happen again.

    This takes me back to 1692, for all you educated people out there “Salem witchcraft trials”. Obviously we are still the same naive citizens that existed back then. I would like to know the whole story before casting judgement on this article. Obviously the Primary’s are tomorrow this article makes it way to the internet today fishy to say the least. Even the editor blocked comment on the Taos news website. FYI to the out of staters and the uninformed the Taos news endorsed Ernestinas opponent as well. Now do we think that she was quoted correctly by a biased news paper?

  • vamoose

    Don’t know the law in NM but in Virginia working on campaign we were advised by campaign lawyers not to remove opponents’ signs on public property. We were also told that there was nothing to prevent placing our signs 2 inches in front of an opponent’s sign 🙂

  • Dante

    I agree Billy (#53), we don’t know all the answers. But even if those signs were NOT on his property, and legally on the property of somebody who gave them permission to place them there; are you saying their removal excuses an assault?

    As for David (#12), I agree it’s probably time to stop saying “It Begins” since it’s been going on for quite a while. I think it won’t happen though, because every time some NEW thing happens on the road to hell, it emphasizes that we are indeed ON the road to hell. And to people not paying attention, eventually one of these “It Begins” moments might finally get through to them.

    As for Cruz, it is ‘unfortunate’ that she has no compassion for somebody who was assaulted by her supporters, regardless of the cause of the assault. One can hope she will not win this election, even with the support of her thugs.

  • Francesca

    So which is it? Were the signs on his property, or in front of his property? That’s a pretty big difference. If it were in front of his property, than he had no right to remove them. Regardless, they should not have resorted to violence. However, if a liberal were to remove a Romney sign from a public place, I’m sure there would be several conservatives like myself who would not be happy with them. That being said, I really hope that the writer of this article did not spin the facts to make it seem like this poor guy got his ass kicked when he did nothing wrong, when in fact he actually did. That’s what liberal media does….not conservative media. We should be all about FACTS.

    Another note that I find fascinating the individual who was attacked is a proud democrat supporting Ernestinas opponent. On a Brighter note I would like to congratulate the conservatives participating in this article for being had by a strong democrat who is intrenched in the democratic party’s antics. Yes the individual who sent this article to the Gateway Pundit knew that his democratic support could not make this story as news worthy, like us conservatives just did. Think about it this story has been in the paper(The Taos News) for the past month or so. Interestingly enough it makes it to the gateway pundit today. A day before the primaries, I am sure the opponent of ernestina cruz and The Taos News which is a liberal paper by the way are proud of us.

    Be wary of coming out in anyway – with a lawn sign, a petition signature, or a Facebook comment. I have heard of all kinds of outing lists in my own employment atmosphere and neighborhood…..

    In Madison, WI we are getting letters “outing” those who live in our immediate neighborhood who voted in previous elections and – according to three reports I received today – those who donate to a candidate with the amounts listed.

    The coming Obama campaign and the mentality that wants to preserve the status quo in a state like Wisconsin (which basically means keep those government employee union dues coming forcibly from your paychecks) will be all about this kind of intimidation.

    Forget yard signs – I am so afraid my house would not just be egged but burned down if I put out a “Stand with Walker ” sign right now…….

    I can’t see how I can ever contribute $25 or $40 bucks to a candidate I support anymore without being outed.

    How about the rest of you – any intimidation along these lines or are you much braver than I?

    Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin was really right on when he spoke a few weeks ago to the GOP convention – this will take a lot of courage. It’d all about courage.

    I’m so afraid for my job and my standing in the community – I’m a coward……but then I hear those words from Paul Ryan……and it makes me wonder if I do have any courage.

    A pro-Walker Wisconsinite who is intimidated in more ways than you would believe to ever speak for my vote – but one who longs for the courage to have a STAND WITH WALKER sign on my lawn.

    I feel like such a loser……no sign but I hope my vote counts. We all should feel that way….right?

    Some good advice to anyone dealing with this king of thugs and most democrats are just that, wait till they leave and remove the signs and destroy them, perhaps at night. If anyone asks about them just say what signs? The signs cost money and even if they removed them at your request, they would put them someplace else. You are under no obligation to indulge them by submitting to them.

    If you hold a weapon while your wife removes signs, that’s brandishing, you will be arrested.
    If you shoot your attackers in self defense, you will have a bounty on your head and be arrested.
    If you call the unionized police and force the issue, you will be arrested.
    If you try to defend your private property in any manner against these communist thugs, you will have your house fire bombed at 3am.
    When the judge wins the election his ass is grass, he will be harassed and arrested if he is lucky.

    Assuming the signs were on the easement and not in the yard. It seems that still would not be legal, without city approval, or the property owners approval. Easements are considered access to the property and owned by the city. I know I got in trouble for posting a garage sale sign on a city easement even though property owners were fine with the sign.

    How is it signs posted on HIS lawn didn’t belong to him. If that’s how the law works, the Cunnyngham should post signs in THEIR front yards saying things like “The people who live here are pedophiles”…then if those people get angry and remove them, they should be punished for removing signs that didn’t belong to them.

    CV1 I don’t know about Taos, but in all areas I have lived, your property goes all the way to the center of the street to be able to tax you for improvements on sidewalk, street, sewer, etc. That would make any signs in front of their property (even if they were on the street side of the sidewalk) ON their property and they would have the right to dispose of them as they wanted.

    Castle Doctrine-
    New Mexico does not have a law based on the castle doctrine, per se. However, the state’s self-defense statute does not require victims to retreat when they or their property come under attack. The law, which has been on the books since 1907, is somewhat vague. Courts have held in past rulings that deadly force must be merited; in other words, a landowner cannot justifiably shoot someone merely for trespassing on his property.(How about three THUGS with hatred in their hearts and a will to beat someone up?)

    Sounds like he should have been excersising his right to concealed carry! If three people attack me on my own property, then they are going to find out how all of my practice at the range is coming along!

    This article has gone vital the funny part about it all. Is the article came from a liberal newspaper and obviously nobody was found at fault. Which is the reason why it is still “under investigation”. This whole article is based off of democratic conflict. They used us conservatives to make it into a news worthy story. If it had any truth and validity we would have heard about it on the nightly news. At the very least the local new mexico news not just from a liberal paper. So let’s keep being pawns of this liberal nonsense.

    Dontcha wonder if “Law Enforcement” might have apprehended the perps by now if it was one of their own who was attacked, instead of just a Mere Citizen?

    The stench is overwhelming.

    I agree that this was an atrocious thing to do. Whoever did it should be held responsible and punished. If the signs were on the couple’s property, they had every right to remove them. If not, obviously they should not beat someone up over it.

    However, a lot of you are falling for the trap that stories like this present. It is NOT Democrats who are desperate or pathetic or fake. It is the majority of politicians. Democrats and Republicans are not all that different from each other, in fact. The government and the media would have us believe that Democrats and Republicans are enemies and thus push us into taking sides and making enemies of one another. It is our job to make our own informed decisions and not let a party OR a particular person be pushed upon us. I mean, look at how the media is trying to hide Ron Paul. They have told lies about him being out of the race (he’s not). They have told lies about the amount of support he is getting (way more than they want you to know). It may just be because he actually wants us to remember that we have rights and stand up for them. If you want to look into something, you should look into that.
