NBC: Police Remove Vietnam War Veterans at Memorial Wall

Via William Jacobson, NBC's affiliate in Washington, D.C. reports that police ordered tourists and Vietnam war veterans who were visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall to leave the memorial at one point on Friday.

After one group of veterans went around the barricade, "the park ranger told them the wall was closed," NBC's Mark Seagraves reported. "Later another group of vets showed up and moved the barricades. At that point, the memorial filled with vets and tourists. That's when police came and moved everyone out."

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is a black granite outdoor wall on which the names of the 58,272 service members who died or were unaccounted for during the Vietnam war are inscribed.

It takes more manpower and costs the government more money to close down an outdoor wall than to let people walk past it and pay their respects.

The Obama administration has been very selective in devoting resources to shutting down memorials.

That’s when police came and moved everyone out.”

I’d like to know why Americans let them accomplish that.

If they’re trying to motivate the Tea Party, they’re doing a great job.

“THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING!” Americans have taken on the gestapo before. We’ll do it again. You can tell a lot about a country from the way it treats its war veterans.

Boulder Colorado started buying “open space” which they closed to the public. This is a wet dream of liberals to close down the sites of people they hate.

And we have to pay all the government employees (even those not working) even while they pull crap like this.

Not one American President would have let this happen....not one. Obama has been at it for five days. He’s mad, and I mean insane mad.

For what he has done in this shutdown, in his temper tantrum, we need to impeach him. He is the worst goofball I have ever seen, bar none!

No it is back. They had to close it temporarily to get the dogs in place.
