Man Says He Will Not Take Down Sign

POSTED: 7:41 pm EDT May 6, 2005

ELYRIA, Ohio -- Bill Kriso, a disabled Vietnam veteran, has a bullet lodged in his brain from the war, but he remains a thankful man, NewsChannel5 reported.








"I thank Jesus. If it wasnīt for him, I wouldnīt be here today," said Kriso.

WEWS reported heīs also thankful for finding his new home in a quiet Elyria development, so to show his appreciation he put up a sign in his window that read, "Thank You Jesus For Our New Home."

The developmentīs management told Kriso to take the sign down.

"People got signs in their windows. Thereīs a Happy Motherīs Day sign. Thereīs all kinds of signs all over the place here and nothing is said," Kriso said.

He got a copy of the bylaws when he bought the house in January. It said that only "For Sale" signs are forbidden, WEWS reported.

The bylaws also forbid excessive lawn ornaments, of which he says his neighbor has plenty.

The park manager wouldnīt talk to NewsChannel5 on camera, but after talking with both parties, itīs believed that the case will likely be settled in court.

"They can have my sign; they can take it down over my dead body," Kriso said. "Theyīre going to have to kill me to get that sign down. I mean that."

The man has a right to put up his sign. Why are we so bent on turning away from God in this nation? I do not understand it.I donīt.

i think he should shoot anybody even attempting to come take it down, anybody who actually ACCEPTS the job to go remove it for those idiots deserves death

We had a neighbor put up a 1 1/2 story tall rosary in their yard. Had it lit up all year round with xmas lights. It was hard to sell our almost new house in the growing subdivision. People think yuck, I donīt want to live by those weirdos who advertise their religion.

I donīt understand why people take something personal and brandish it. I think itīs rude and thereīs no point to it, other than to shove it in other peopleīs faces.

Why not put something like that in your backyard where itīs more private? Or put in a nice prayer garden?

he owns the property, anybody seeing it doesnt own the area of material manifestation where they are capable of perceiving his sign

so yes, he wins, and should still shoot anybody attempting to take it, hes a vet for christs sake, literally

"he owns the property"

And if the development bylaws donīt prohibit it, then the guy has an absolute right to free speech, even if no one likes what he has to say. Itīs the First Amendment and it still works.

HOAīs (home owners associations) are out of control in this country!
My sister and her family live in an HOA controlled community. My brother in law has a
newer truck with mud tires, brush guards ect..
The HOA informed them that they would have to get rid of the truck "because it was not in
line with the quality of life expected of this neighborhood" and "was excessively loud".
Granted my Bro in laws truck has a "rumble" to it but he keeps it washed and waxed and like I said itīs a newer model (2004) truck.
Oh and BTW the HOA president has a Dodge Viper
(twice as loud as BILs truck - plus a pickup
of his own)

Go figgure

He would fit right in in my neighborhood - thereīs a pick up truck every 2 feet. Not to mention dogs, cigerettes, beer, and lawn chairs. But weīre unincorporated so they flock here.

Im still trying to figure out why on earth anyone would buy a home in a place where there is a homeowners association dictating rules about what you can and cannot do?!??

Im in the country and even out here there are ordinances they try to push. Most comply but I defy everytime! My theory is when the town starts paying their share of my taxes, then we can talk, intill then kiss my ass!

Tell them to go fuck themselves.

When they try to take him to court he should countersue for frivolous legal action and violation of his first amendment rights to free speech.

Sounds like to me they just want this guy to leave, so theyre pushing his buttons hoping to get ab actionable offense out of him. From the sounds of it someone could get shot.
If you own the property what you park on it and where is your buisness, if they donīt like it let them move.

Iīm a bit ignorant on how HOA work. Does this mean a developer will not sell you a home in an area unless you sign some kind of agreement? Is this agreement legally binding?
