Trump Supporter in California Claims Postal Worker Wrote ‘BLM’ On Her Mail
Neighbor’s security camera showed the mail carrier committing the act
A woman in Northridge, California, who proudly displays a giant Trump flag outside her home, has claimed a mail carrier for the United States Post Service wrote “BLM” on her mail.
The woman, only identified as “Donna” due to fears of retaliation if her full identity is released, said her neighbor’s security camera showed the mail carrier committing the act, as per FOX 11.
“His camera showed him walking to my house. He had the mail in his hand, and he’s writing.”
Donna added that the postal worker threw her mail on the ground
“I’m just curious, how many people in this whole neighborhood have a Trump sign?" she asked.
"And if they do… they probably got BLM written on their mail also.”
Her neighbor supported Donna’s story saying:
“You know what? It’s 100% sure. You know why; nobody coming inside for writing the email. Only this guy has access for that thing.”
“Donna,” who stated, “Trump is a great president,” said she contacted the post office about the incident, saying, “This guy was tampering with private property mail. The manager told me they’re definitely going to fire him because this is a federal offense.”
FOX 11 was told the postal service was aware of the matter:
"We are disappointed to see the actions of our employee, and apologize to the customers affected by this incident. The Postal Service is investigating the matter and will take appropriate action to ensure this does not occur again.”
The U.S. code states:
Whoever steals, takes, or abstracts, or by fraud or deception obtains, or attempts so to obtain, from or out of any mail, post office, or station thereof, letter box, mail receptacle, or any mail route or other authorized depository for mail matter, or from a letter or mail carrier, any letter, postal card, package, bag, or mail, or abstracts or removes from any such letter, package, bag, or mail, any article or thing contained therein, or secretes, embezzles, or destroys any such letter, postal card, package, bag, or mail, or any article or thing contained therein; or

The news comes a week after a Montana family was left traumatized after a man tore down their Trump campaign flags from their home before burning them as four children slept inside their house.
Surveillance camera footage caught Eric Herrera walking up to the family's house in Three Forks, outside of northwest of Bozeman, before tearing the flags down and setting them alight, according to police.
Julia and Robert O'Rourke bought the Trump flags in support of the President's re-election and hung them proudly on their porch in the town of 2,000 people.
