AUGUST 16--Meet Larry Northern. The Texas man, 59, was arrested last night and charged with criminal mischief for allegedly driving his pickup truck over wooden crosses erected near the roadside campsite of Cindy Sheehan, the California woman who has brought her antiwar protest to President George W. Bush's Crawford doorstep. A row of the memorial crosses, which carry the names of U.S. soldiers killed during the Iraq war, were destroyed when Northern, a Waco resident, allegedly drove his truck (which was dragging a pipe and chains) over them. The crosses are part of an encampment Sheehan has dubbed "Camp Casey" in honor of her late son, a 24-year-old Army Specialist killed in action last year. Sheehan has said she will not budge from the road leading to the president's ranch until he meets with her to explain "why our sons are dead."
So if I decide I want to set up camp on the shoulder of a road it;s ok?
Good to know, I have a fifth wheel and would appreciate a break on site fees.
Too many longneckers?
I heard it was one of Reno's ATF guys left behind with delayed shock syndrome.
I hear Larry always drags a pipe and chains.
The Ghost of Carlos Ghigliotti.
Hey, that right front tire was slack, gimme a break. The darned old truck was just pulling hard to the right.
I can't get behind that.
As long as you set up a protest you're good to go.
Still not the thing to do; that's more the thuggest kind of activity that the left is so well known for.
A wacko from Waco? (Sorry, couldn't help it)
I think he's really only 46 years old ............ much better.
You know, Cindy should really count her blessings. If it was an A.T.F. agent in the truck, her entire camp site could have been burned down.
Why to go Larry. We should start a collection to help him pay his law fees. Three cheers for a real man.
I'm setting up camp outside the mayor of Aspen Colorado until I get an explanation why my dish TV won't work when I'm camping in northern Canada. (or it turns to spring and then I'll move my protest to Georgian Bay Ontario where I'll be protesting the poor reception of my dish TV)
It's just another case of vigilanteism. The guy got upset that the authorities would not enforce the law, so he took it into his own hands.
Maybe he was just a bad driver.
(which was dragging a pipe and chains) ....
Now there's a man who was not only pissed but after doing some planning and some rigging, got the job done. It's Red Zone initiative to thwart the carpet bagging bluezoners.
