Police in Taos, New Mexico have spent close to a month investigating a case where a man was allegedly beaten after removing political signs placed on his property without his permission.
Across the road, a candidate for District Court Judge Ernestina Cruz was holding an event, and supporters seemingly placed signs on the mans lawn to direct attendees where to go.
I told them I thought it was very distasteful to put these signs in front of my property, Roy Cunnyngham said, so he packed them in the car to return to their rightful owners.
At that point, a man allegedly crossed the street and told Cunnyngham to put the signs back where they were. When Cunnyngham refused, he says, the man pounded [him] in the chest.
Sgt. John Wentzs report elaborates: All of the sudden two more men showed up and started to hit and shove Mr. Cunnyngham.
Cunnynghams wife Joni also told police that she got out of the car to help, but someone held her from behind and kept her in place while the men beat her husband. The couples son was also shoved aside, and prevented from helping .
They just attacked him, all three of them, Joni recalled.
A doctor treated Cunnyngham for cuts and bruises, injuries to his mouth and a concussion, but his main concern is that a month later, the perpetrators still have not been brought to justice.

Our nation is just falling apart.
I hope the perps get arrested and given the max.
Needs to sue the local Democrat party
Being unarmed in this situation means that several violent (probably Marxists) will be around to harm others in the future. That is the lesson I think needs to be learned from this.
This is the most important election since 1940 and perhaps 1860.
Next time shoot them dead the second they put a single foot on your property.
It won’t happen again.
“That is the lesson I think needs to be learned from this...”
Right you are, MtnClimber. I have the feeling November could be a violent time period for voters. I am certainly filing this case in my brain to remember.
Commies don’t believe in property rights.
Rub poison oak on the signs before you take them out and they handle them.
Thank God for Romney as the standard bearer. Ugh!
It was the most important election. Now it’s the least.
Tina Cruz wants to be Judge;
but has no understanding of PRIVATE PROPERTY.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.from the Taos News
Nothing will happen to them. Liberals always get a pass and free ride to do whatever.
The neighborhood commie next door hasn’t put up any Mao signs yet. I expect to see them sooner or later. He kept his Mao allegience sign up for many months after the wun was sworn in.
We’ve had some run ins but there is a truce and he has never dared to put anything in my yard. If he did, I would burn them in plain sight and roll HD video on it the whole time. I could only hope he would come out in his blind rage for all to see.
This is the guy who bullied a little old lady into an overpriced survey over 3 or so lousy inches of property line. She keeps a nice yard and garden. His yard is nothing but weeds and holly bushes except for a patch a large car would take up.
Welcome to Maobama’s Amerika.
I would put up a big sign stating that I was beaten by thugs for removing, “candidate’s name, who is running for “position” Democratic party, sign.
Such an encounter on my property will be dealt with by Mr. Sig and Mr. Sauer.
Yes, and get Atty Gen Holder to prosecute for violation of the man's civil rights.
I didn't read the entire article, however, did judge candidate Ernestina have anything to say about all of this?
Shades of Stalinism, n'est ce pas?
I would LOVE for a bunch of union thugs or libtard dems to try that with me.
“Carry Daily, Apply Sparingly.”
I’ve always said that.
I have to say, I prefer Mssr’s Stoeger and Ruger!
Unbelievable and she wants to be a judge? Wow!
Tried by twelve or carried by six. Take your pick.
So, what charges will be brought against Mr. Cunnyngham?
I used to live near Taos. I can tell him that being a law abiding citizen, he should not expect any more action in (D) N.M. than he would get from Eric Holder in Chicago.
YOU CANNOT SHOOT SOMEONE SIMPLY TRESPASSING ON YOUR PROPERTY.
Don’t post idiocy such as that.
Unless it’s Texas at night
Democrat Party = Party of peace. </ sarcasm >
Besides stating that you are stupid, NM and most other states allow you to use lethal force to defend yourself against severe harm or lethal force. Since the left has killed about 150 million that did not share their beliefs I keep this in mind when dealing with these crimminal losers.
It has nothing with placement of signs. This person was removing signs from HIS property and was assaulted. Me, I would have been shooting.
He was within his rights to put a bullet through their skulls, threatening and beating him on his own property and forcing him to support politicians he has no desire to support. This is straight fascism.
He needs to sue the local democrat party, the names who were on the signs, and the creep next door!
I hated those signs! Used to have to mow a lawn years back that every election the signs would sprout up like mushrooms.
This man should have taken them down and thrown them in his trash, never said a word to anyone.
So it was unfortunate that the man removed the signs on his own property but not that he was beaten. This woman sounds like a communist thug.
Exactly....we are coming to the point where everyone should be armed. Our legal system is so corrupted by the Marxists that it is no longer working. There is no Justice—there will be chaos.
Click Click BOOM! I would not hesitate.
Taos? Where is McCloud when you need him?
The victim in the article could have used force to defend himself, and in some states could have used deadly physical force, but this poster was only referring to simple ("they put a single foot on your property") trespass.
Even if someone who had beaten you before trespassed, that would not give you athority to shoot them just for that trespass.
UNION THUGS!!! And union police look the other way sometimes!!
You certainly can if they are approaching with violent intent.
Did the shooter attempt to deescalate by fleeing. Did the shooter start the altercation? Is the attacker 6'4” and a karate expert or is she 14 with asthma? Is the Vic 88 and in a wheelchair, or a 22 year sprinter? There is no blanket, even in states with SYG Laws.
Just ask George Zimmermann!
...In his report, Wentz also said that Taos Police Lt. David Maggio was present at the meet and greet and told Wentz at the time that he wanted no part of the incident. He has since denied seeing any part of the alleged battery...
What about a 14 yr old female asthmatic karate expert?
Send her picture to Laz.
