okay I live in Ocala a small town in florida. along the highway there are handmade signs. really racist signs. is it legal to post sign on public (state/county) property? the signs are disgusting calling Obama a (muslim Ni....) and that is teh least offensive one. I can't even post what the others say. I was going to take them off but didn't know if it's legal. I know its illegal to remove signs from private property, but what about public propert? I'm also afraid because there are some members of the kkk in my neighborhood. I'm white but if they posted the signs they might hurt me if I take them off. what can i legally do?

Call the police, non-emergency number and tell them that you believe they are posted on public property. I do believe that it is illegal to post a sign without first getting permission.

I don't live too far from you and I can only imagine the redneck moron who posted them. I agree, call the non emergency number and ask what you can do. I wouldn't want/ shouldn't have to explain crap like that to my kid as we drive by!
