    A few days ago, a man, dressed as a construction worker, attacked the star with a sledgehammer and pickax. He was not successful in removing the entire star, but he was able to obliterate Trump’s name and the icon indicating the type of award. A suspect was arrested the following day: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/27/us/politics/trump-star-on-hollywood-walk-of-fame-is-smashed.html?_r=0

    I obviously agree with the sentiment, but not the action. You can (and should) oppose someone’s candidacy without resorting to vandalism, violence, or other illegal acts.

    It’s easy, too easy, to say that Trump (and by proxy his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame) are simply reaping what has been sown, but down that path lies ruin.

    We already have one of our two major political parties attacking our institutions and undermining the rule of law whenever they happen to feel opposed to something or someone; we can’t join in.
