He should hang with a better class of people.
So if I am injured by police as I rob a bank or hijack a car it’s news?
" The demonstrators had been making an attempt to re-establish a presence in the area of a disbanded protesters' camp when they were met by police officers in riot gear. "
So, an anti-war protest group was trying to retake a park the police had evicted them from, and by so doing were clearly in violation of the law.
I pray this guy recovers and am grateful for his service...but he is hanging with the wrong people and being used to violate the very oath he took to the constitution.
Jeremiah Wright also served...he was a U.S. Marine...but he went wrong thereafter and now hates America.
Notice the T-Shirt he is wearing: Veterans for Peace.
Anyone who has anything to do with this organization has turned his back on those he served with. These pieces of crap are cut from the same cloth as those who vilified our soldiers in Vietnam, even if they did serve.
There is a shelf life on how much respect and support someone who fights for our country gets. It is not unlimited. If anyone wants to argue this point, one need look no further than Benedict Arnold. There is a man who should have and did command the respect of his fellow countrymen, but his name is now synonymous with traitor. As it should be. These people are no different.
I usually give leeway to and respect veterans in their opinions, but any veteran who joins this anti-American group is lost to me, as far as I am concerned. I will stand with the other veterans.
I hope the guy recovers, but you sleep with dogs, you wake up with fleas.
Well said. I have faced off against these evil, filthy traitors. I harbor no more sympathy for them than I did for Rachel Corrie.
If Oakland Police are willing to do this to a left winger protesting, just image what they will do during a conservative protest.
