OAK CREEK - New reports have come in from Oak Creek about "Stand with Walker" yard signs being burned in the area.

Three signs were taken from yards and burned on the 8100 block of Mona Court early Monday morning.

"I found out about it when my neighbor called me, and said 'Hey, is your sign gone from your front yard?'  I hadn't noticed, but it was," said Gerry Willie.

He told Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Jodi Becker that his home wasn't damaged, but he explained, "I feel angry.  I feel it's just another indication of the bullying going on in this state for a year."

The police report from that night lists the sign's value at less than $100, but to Willie, it's the principle of the matter.

He says he will put up new signs soon.

"We're probably going to coat them with liquid pepper, so if they want to pick them up, they'll have a little trouble getting it off their hands."

Similar reports of Walker sign-burning have come from Fox Point.
