Dead soldier's home vandalized
Kokomo, February 27 - For the family who lives in a modest home in Kokomo the fatal Iraq attack came last week.
Then the attack at home followed.

Vandals defaced the home of Sgt. Rickey Jones' family. Eggs were thrown and flags were stolen. Sgt. Jones, a Kokomo High School graduate, was one four soldier's with the 101st killed west of Baghdad last week.
So who, one week before his burial in his hometown, would vandalize a fallen hero's house. Neighbor Robyn Ousley is at a loss to explain.

"I have no idea. Somebody pretty, pretty awful."

Another friend, Bill Swaggerty, says there is more than vandalism for the family to deal with.
"They're calling here and saying 'I'm glad your son is dead' and it's wrong."

The family's neighbors have closed ranks, bringing food and flying flags at half-staff. All are signs of respect for Sgt. Jones.
But there is a threat of disrespect from out of state.

The same Kansas church group that has been picketing soldier's funerals around the U.S. and Indiana will be in Kokomo too. The group claims U.S. soldier deaths are punishment for U.S. tolerance of Gays.

Kokomo police will have extra security and are running extra patrols at the house. Swaggerty, a veteran himself, says he convinced Rickey Jones to join up. He can't believe Sgt. Jones' memory would be attacked in this way.

"It's wrong. He would come home on leave. His friends (were) very respectful to my wife and my family. He was a very good kid."

Swaggerty supports a move in the legislature to keep protesters back from military funerals.

Neighbor Ousley agrees. "He just went over there for us. I think it is awful." Services for Sgt. Jones are set for next Monday. In the meantime Kokomo police have increased patrols around his family's house.

Yeah, I am really feeling we are entering a new era of anti-Americanism within America. Up untill now it has been all about "support the troops" but you haven't heard that in a good while from the left. We could very easily be slowly marching down the same path we blazed in the Vietnam War.

The pentagon knows about bombs and bullets but how many wars will we have to lose before they learn the most important front is within our own boarders?

I think it is a damn shame and I hope some of his buddies find the one who did this.
But I can't help thinking that it is so typical American. My impression of the States is that it is prone to sharp reactions and emotions in a very short time. (Note: I am not trying to put anyone down, but this is the impression we get here in Holland.) On the one side you have this very patriotic group of people who can barely stand any criticism on any issue. On the other side you have this group trying to make a point by any means necessary. Obviously someone is trying to say he or she doesn't agree with this war, but why in such a disrespectful way? Why isn't there a mainstream path pro- and antagonists call talk without making unnecessary victims. This dead soldier's familie doesn't need this and America doesn't need this!

Freaking scumbags. If they dared did this in my town. I'd hunt them down and I know a ton of other folks that would do it to. They'd all help and I'll make sure that those punks get turned over to the proper police. Like the LEOs that sevred overseas.

When I swore an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States, one part mentioned “All Enemies Foreign and Domestic.”

A person promoting Anti-Americanism in the United Stats is in effect inciting a civil war, something that has already been determined to be unconstitutional.

A person inciting civil war is a Domestic Enemy of this country, making them fair game as far as I am concerend.

A little windage and a little elevation sounds like it might just be a little severe for my tastes.

NOWWWWW
If the police would just back off while the picketers are ragging on the funeral procession etc ..... I'm quite sure I could find a few of my buddies who are trained in riot control that could teach some manners to a bunch of "Domestic Enemies".

Riot batons and steel toed boots at one pace applied to collar bones, arms and legs could pacify these idiots in very short order. I just believe it would be better to teach good manners than to apply deadly force to this stench against humanity.
