Marine's Gravesite Vandalized.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,305240,00.html

Immediately I was angry, but now I'm just sad. How can anyone do this to anyone's gravesite, yet alone a Marine's?

This was on the local news as well. The suspects father explained that he also ripped up stuff from his own relatives graves as well as others to resell. There was no intent to target a veteran specifically. Still a lowlife thing to do.

Yeah, still a lowlife indeed. Nevertheless, there are people out there who would do something like this, or disrupt a fallen soldier's funeral as a political statement. No respect at all. It's for reasons like that, that the Patriot Guard was formed.

BTW, we welcome all riders from all backgrounds to join, not just cruisers, and we could always use more members.

very sad indeed. The way they were talking on the radio this morning, i thought he dug up the grave and took things inside the casket so glad to know the crime was not that bad, but disrespectful to say the least.

RIP. Sometimes your voice is so loud, you don't make a statement- you just anger enough people to ensure you'll have an even larger enemy.

dude it's a really messed up thing he did. for sure. but jail time and a huge fine covers it. Look at it with your head and not your heart.
