A Dalton, Mass., man who’s been charged with burning a political display was found dangerous by a Berkshire District Court judge and ordered to be held without the right to bail pending trial.

Lonnie Durfee, 49, is charged with burning a hay bale display supporting Democratic candidates Joe Biden and Kamala Harris at the Holiday Brook Farm on Route 9 in Dalton on the evening of Oct. 9.

Durfee was arrested the next morning and charged with burning personal property. At his arraignment, he was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing.

That hearing was held Friday before Judge Paul Smyth in the Pittsfield court.

“Mr. Durfee’s record shows that he has engaged in a pattern of domestic violence, including strangulation, a strong indicator of potential lethality. Mr. Durfee’s recent arson allegations are particularly concerning in light of his violent history because he is escalating his hostility against the public at large,” said District Attorney Anrea Harrington.

The farm’s management had constructed the display that morning from 19 rolled bales of hay with the names of the candidates painted on plastic covering the hay. Holiday Brook Farm in Dalton

The display in support of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris at Holiday Brook Farm in Dalton was set on fire on Friday, Oct. 9, 2020.

As workers finished up for the day they discovered the hay burning and called firefighters.

No one was injured in the fire.

Wonder if this guy is a firebug and just wanted to burn something or if he really was a rare species of somebody on the right acting like the left does.

Yep. Burn a Trump sign, no sign of the police; burn a Biden sign, jail without bail.

If you have to burn something, always target Republicans. Otherwise you won’t get to spend the night, or any night, in your own bed.

No; just a lost soul whose son recently died and is struggling with substance abuse. He was apparently drunk when he did it (said he had been trying to get sober but having a difficult time of it).

Of course. Still and all, the disparate treatment of this arson happening to Biden signs versus Trump signs is undeniable.

It was such a small fire that employees did not even notice it.

Dalton is in the Berkshire Mountains region of western Mass. It’s heavy duty liberal country.

That region will go 70-30 for Slow Joe.

I wonder what kind of farm it is. Most farmers I know are pro-life Christians and in fact around our county there are several huge rolls of hay that are wrapped in Trump 2020 in humongous lettering. Pro-Biden supporters are pawns of satanic influence.

There are a lot of leftist, hippy-dippy farms that way.

Not the farmers like the rest of America, that’s for sure.

Does make a person wonder.
All the farmers I knew were extremely conservative.
Cannot imagine a pro-biden-ho farmer.

So, tearing down statues...- ok!

Burning down a hay bale... - “destruction of property”.
