everywhere: Toronto police patrolled a midtown area overnight, after vandals cut brake lines on at least 10 cars parked at homes with Liberal election signs on their lawns. Officers are paying special attention to the designated area and we take this very seriously," Staff-Sgt. Regardless of the motivation - and there appears to be a connection (to the signs) - this is a public safety issue." Although Meloche confirmed 10 cases of vandalism last night, Liberal riding headquarters said the number was going up, reporting 14 by 9 pm The cars were also damaged in other ways; "There are two child seats in the back of my car," said Andrew Lane, chief financial officer for Bennett's campaign. Added Lane, whose children are 6 months and 22 months: "You have to crawl under someone's car and cut the brake line, knowing that it could kill someone, or their whole family." Lane discovered his brakes didn't work on his silver Saturn View as he tried to pull up at a stop sign near his home yesterday. He kept slamming the brakes and, in a "moment of terror," narrowly avoided slamming into a bus. Later, the garage called to tell him it had been no accident. When Lane expressed disbelief, the mechanic told him: "Look, this is a big, heavy rubber hose and it's been cut through with a very sharp knife. You'd think it might just be depraved, generic vandals, but this does seem to be connected to the yard signs. I hate to jump to conclusions, but there's just too much evidence of the right wing fringe coming unglued right now. I would expect that if they lose, we're going to see more of it here in the US. Times are likely to get tough and these people have been indoctrinated in propaganda for the past three decades that says liberals are the cause of all their problems.
