What happened to civility? Don't like Scott Walker? Why not torch pro-Walker signs....in people's front yards... on private property.

Jamie Schumaker came out of his Fox Point home to get the paper Sunday morning to find his small Governor Walker campaign sign reduced to ashes, a sign he put up just the day before.

"You'd like to disagree agreeably and not have to resort to something like this," said Schumaker to TODAY'S TMJ4.

Schumaker said he's an avid Walker supporter, even a donor, and said this is upsetting.  His neighbor's sign ruined the same way.  "I'd hate to see this kind of intimidation and threats creep into certainly this election," said Schumaker.

The Fox Point Police Department said they've had several complaints of burned Walker signs and in response, they plan to put out extra patrols.

The torching came just after the DNC decided to pull out of the recall Scott Walker efforts.
