“It is unfortunate that these crimes have occurred, and they must stop,” said District Attorney Brian Middleton. “Destruction of political campaign signs is not likely to affect the outcome of the election; however, the lack of civility and disrespect involved in these crimes is a degradation of our community values. These actions do not reflect the high moral standards that are typical of Fort Bend County. Please help us put an end to this behavior; our community is better than this.”
