FAIRFIELD — The Solano County Republican headquarters on Jackson Street was vandalized Sunday morning.

Lt. Al Bagos said police discovered the vandalism at 9 a.m.

Police said that the suspect threw a large piece of broken cement through the two glass windows in the front of the building. The suspect then sustained an injury, leaving a trail of blood from the window to the street.

Bagos said there was about $2,000 worth of damage.

Police do not have a suspect and are canvassing the neighborhood for potential leads.

Lloyd Dashner and Rod Keck spent the majority of the morning and early afternoon cleaning up the damage and boarding the windows. They said they don’t believe the vandalism was random.

    Any nut who dislikes the Republicans is only going to attract sympathy votes for the Republican party candidates. I saw the fix up crew get right into gear in clearing out the mess. They worked fast! Time for peace.

    Because the libs are losing, we'll probably see more evidence of their lack of civility around the country.

    I am wondering what non-civility from those who seem to think their treatment of those they disagree with is civil, I'm wondering what that non-civility would look like.

    Police "found" the damage at 9 a.m.? Where the heck were the graveyard officers? It takes 3 hours of daylight for officers to "find" this? Remember when we used to PATROL?

    This is exactly the sort of thing that makes me feel like I'm a Jew living in 1938 Nazi Germany. This is exactly what was done in Germany against the Jews. The Democratic majority will be shamefully silent today. Soon, if you look like a Republican (conservative white male) and worse if you've spoken out against the bankrupt big government unionized democrats, you will be attacked by their feral welfare and illegal alien thugs. It's time to immigrate back to the United States because this horrible state no longer resembles the America I once knew.

    Just keep checking the hospitals for someone showing up with a cut that needs stiches.

  • If It Had Been The Democrats HeadquartersSeptember 17, 2012 - 1:38 pm

    If it had been the Rat Party's headquarters--the FBI would have already declared the building ''a hate crime'' scene. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would already be in Fairfield leading a ''civil rights for voters'' march through the crime filled streets. The TV news from Pyongyang to Tashkent would be saying evil white Republicans are terrorizing poor people of color. Heather Ahn San would already have a story up asking ''Is it open season on persecuted Democrats?''. Channel 3 KCRA would be broadcasting live from the building comparing it to the burning of the Reichstag. No law enforcement resource would be spared at finding the perps and we would be told endlessly by the government-media complex with houly updates regarding all the minutia that could be possibly over-reported.

    The clean-up crew that is shown here are part of a handful of men, most of them veterans, who want nothing more than to work to make our country a better place! This building was a cold, empty shell for years; it had no walls & no floors, just numerous coats of peeling paint & rough, chunky cement! These men, with very little money, spent weeks, morning & night, volunteering to clean, scrape, paint, wire & haul & turned this shell of a building into a beautiful place! The Grand Opening was held in February 2012 & many events, meetings & phonebanks have been held here! Now these men, including my husband, are giving up their Sunday plans to clean-up a destructive mess that was apparently created by someone who felt entitled because they didn't like some candidate window signs!

    No excuse for the vandalism of the republican office. I hope they catch whoever did it as I'd be interested in the reason the perpetrators might give. Was it personal against someone who worked there? Did the Republican party represent something negative to the perpetrators? Or one of many other possible reasons? Definitely not the civil response, vandalism.

    I doubt if someone is going to give a reason why they busted out windows that contained candidate signs- the same thing happened to a Republican building in Fairfield in 2004! Do any vandals ever have a reason- look at how many schools have been vandalized! If they gave a reason who cares- it's wrong!
