Wolfeboro Kerry Supporters Find Nails In Driveways: No One Injured By Roofing Nails
The WMUR Channel 04 November 2004

WOLFEBORO, N.H. The election is over, but police are still investigating criminal acts in Wolfeboro that may have been politically motivated.

Several residents found roofing nails scattered in their driveways the morning of the election.

"I didn't really think much about it until the next day, and we heard other people had nails in their driveway, too," resident Steve Davis said.

Davis and his wife, Joyce Davis, said they realized that all the victims had Kerry-Edwards sign in their yards.

"To put nails in a driveway that just crosses the line," said Joyce Davis, who is also vice chairwoman of Wolfeboro Democrats. "I just don't understand. If the object was voter intimidation, that didn't work. It's just not funny."

Police said the nail incidents started right after a number of Kerry-Edwards signs were reported missing. Some residents reported that the nails were thrown directly underneath their back tires.

Police said it's fortunate no one got hurt. The 1-inch nails have a flat head and stand up easily, making it possible to puncture a tire or someone's foot. Many of the nails were discovered over the weekend when kids were out trick-or-treating.

"Everybody is passionate about their candidate, but this is just too much," Lt. Brian Black said. "It's not right."

Police said they are continuing to investigate the incidents.
