Maybe "they" took the doors off the hinges to repair them.

Well, and if this guy's ever hung a door, or watched someone do it, there's no way a bunch of protesters in the middle of a crowd could get it off. You need room to work, and the fucking things are heavy, and it takes some careful coordinating to get them back on straight. It took Mr. A and I the better part of a morning to re-hang a steel core back door to our house, and it probably weighed a fraction of what those things do.

But hey, HOMGVANDALISM is so much better to throw out there in the Twittersphere!


time to call BULLSHIT.

And at what point in time were the doors standing open long enough to remove them? It's not just a question of accessing the hinges from the inside of the building, the doors have to actually BE OPEN since the screws are on the inside edge of the doors and the frames.

But let's not let facts get in the way of drama, shall we?
