Sombody Blacked Out the Pro-Taylor Signs In Monrovia

As previously mentioned here, and often mentioned in articles by visiting international reporters, for about six months now there's been a pro-Charles Taylor billboard posted at the corner of 20th Street and Tubman Blvd, behind a high wall with razor wire on top.

Not long after the sign was posted, it was defaced with acid, but you could still read it. Then a few weeks ago, just in time for the start of the trial in the Hague, two smaller signs were added in the same location, one of them reading "God willing, I'll be back." Just the other day, someone got over the wall and painted them all over with black paint.
