Disgusting. These are Obama’s and Holders people. Youths being taught that veterans are the enemy. Old people suck etc.

I’ll bet they were “Holder’s People” or “Wise Latine Female” spawn.

Any bets against me?

When a Lame Stream media talking head does not mention the above data regarding the perps, is is a safe bet they were not whites.

This is just awful. Any Houston Freepers willing to organize a party to go fix the damage and repaint the walls? It should be a simple one-Saturday project.

I feel so badly for this man especially since he just lost his wife a few weeks back. I am hoping a local Boys Scout troop will offer to repaint the walls. Perhaps even the local school’s ROTC group can help?

Excellent. Please let me know if money for paint/cleaning supplies is needed. I would be happy to chip in for that.

If anyone knows anything about gang names and symbols, it should be easy to figure out the ethnicity of the perps from the video.

Last I heard, about $30,000 had been raised.
40 servicemen from Ellington field are going over there at 1400 hrs to begin repair.

Equipment has been donated, more coming in all the time.

This will be set right in short order.

Back in the day, judges would tell such scum they had a choice of joining the army or jail time. This would be a good sentence with these punks. They’d at least get a chance to change with ways. The older one is close to signing age. The younger one may can get a stay until of age. Both need to get a paintbrush put in their hands.

I can’t post what I would like some of the funds to go for. Thank God there are some good people out there. These scumbags are multiplying and need to be taken out.

Michael Berry:

UNBELIEVABLE the reaction I've received from listeners
over this story. I'm meeting Mr Wood at his house at 2pm,
accompanied by much of the battalion from Ellington,
contractors who are handling the various aspects of his home,
HPD officers who are Marine veterans, and more. People DO care.

agree ..that said..it'll never happen; b/c the "dears" couldn't...
handle it (em-ploy-ment / earning a living) considered "too white"
