Story from KCBD-TV
Lubbock Democrats are fighting back against sign vandalism after claiming hundreds of yard signs and multiple large signs have been stolen, destroyed, or defaced with racial slurs.
On Wednesday, a volunteer “staked out” an area at 26th & University Avenue and caught the alleged vandals on video.
The recording was taken as evidence by Lubbock police and returned to Lubbock County Democratic Chair Kenny Ketner and his volunteers on Friday. They posted it on YouTube.
The video includes a recording of what volunteers say is a punch thrown by one of the vandals and a recording of the 911 call made by the volunteer.
While on the phone with police, the volunteer says, “They jumped out of the truck and they beat me up. They were trying to take the camera away from me.”
During the incident, the men shouted profanities at the volunteer. The shouted words “coon” and the n-word are also audible. As they fled, one of the men also seemed to shout, “Go back to Mexico, M——-F——-.”
Police say the investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made.
