We cannot believe how terrible some people can be.

Officials in Commerce Township may seek legal action the person who attached razor blades to a political sign, injuring an employee who attempted to move it.

The worker attempted to remove the sign endorsing President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, as it was too close to the roadway. Township Supervisor Dave Scott tells WDIV that when he grabbed the sign, he thought he had been electrocuted but then soon realized that there were razor blades taped along the bottom edge of the sign.

“He pulled over, reached down to grab it... He actually thought it was electrified. He jumped and let go of it, looked at his hand and realized he was bleeding aggressively,” Scott said.

The worker, who was heavily bleeding, drove himself to the hospital where he received 13 stitches.

The homeowner, whose yard the sign was in, said she recently had several political signs stolen and returned. She claimed to know nothing about the razor blades taped to the Trump/Pence sign.

“Why would someone set a boobytrap sign to harm someone?” township supervisor Dave Scott told WDIV. “A child could have picked it up.”

The Oakland County Sheriff's Department is investigating the incident.

We are appalled at how ugly things have gotten during this election cycle.
