WHAT???? Why should they be put in prison??? Give them to the local marine base for a little "military" justice and save our tax dollars :>} Chances are they would think twice before doing it again, if they were physically able to do it again.

What a bunch of scum!!!

So, we should inflict vigilante violence on these folks just because they did something that we do not like. Sounds as if their accusations may not be far from wrong. Your reply indicates that you are willing to inflict extra-legal "justice" in the form of torture and you are sure that the military personnel would be willing to do it.

Sounds like you would be right at home in 1940s Germany wearing a swastika. Your reaction is stupid. It makes me suspect that you may be stupid too.

I agree it's a hate crime.
Probably comitted by the same type of people who have young kids lie down and pretend they are dead to have their outlines drawn by students protesting the war at CU. Scum!

I hope the vandals are caught and punished. Their acts were disrespectful of those who served. Putting the Nazi symbol in place of our flags is a hate crime. I hope they are caught and made to pay for their crime. And that's what it is -- this is vandalism, not "free speech."

Scum of the earth ! If they think that the cause they stand up for is "just". Then let's give them to the military for punishment. Then they can justifiably rot.

Once again the altrusim of the liberals appears in post #6. Any doubt that this act wasn't a statement by one of their more warped groups. The only surprise is that there wasn't a boulder address.

Let's pretend you are black. Let's pretend I am KKK (which I'm not). I decide to burn a cross on your front lawn. Based on your response I should be left alone because all I did was something you didn't like.

I didn't say give them to the military for "torture". That is probably a deepseeded view you have of the military you many want to see a professional about.

I said give them over for a little "military justice". I was in the military and saw how even military personel were treated when they committed a crime. Trust me, it's a lot harsher than civilian justice, both mentally and physically. If you didn't have respect for others or the law going in, you had it coming out or you went right back in.

You cannot continue to turn a blind eye to those that disrespect this country and the people who have fought for it. Maybe you need to spend a little time in Iraq to get a real appreciation for respect of those who fight for this country. See one of your friends that you laughed and cried with die defending this country's freedoms. Then have someone go and deface their grave in front of you just because they didn't agree with you.

By the way Einstien, I was a Forward Observer in the Army and hold 3 degrees; Bachlor of Science, MIS, and MASTERS OF RESPECT.

No wonder this country is falling apart!!!!

It sounds to me like you are stupid!!! How about protecting the rights of our veterans and their families. Alot of these men died protecting our freedom against that swastika. It sounds to me like you would be right at home in Nazi Germany in the 1940's, oh, wait they would put you in a prison camp for opening your mouth.

My use of the term altrusim and liberals was made with my tongue firmly planted in my cheek. They have none. Our latest case in Denver involved a liberal (former university professor), who deposited dog poop on the door step of her republican adversary, a true class act for a 64 year old lady....and then walked out of court with her arms raised in victory when the liberal judge threw the case out. Not a perfect analogy but similar in what these groups will do if you don't agree with them

I will talk more!!! You can say my response is inane, but it is not any more than your babblings. You keep throwing reading books at us, maybe it is time you took your snooty nose out of the books and learn what real life is about. This was a hate crime against our veterans and their families.

LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!!!!!!
Don't Mock America or Americans in America or you will suffer the wrath of ALL TRUE BLOODED AMERICANS!!!!
What these punks did, to the graves of our beloved fallen national hero's, is completely without merit and to defend any acts associated with them truly means you hate America.

It's bad enough that we have to put security personnel in our public schools to protect our children, because the teachers and school administrators refuse to do it.
Do we now need to put them in our cemetaries to protect our honored dead?
I whole heartedly agree with you Tom.
Have some respect people, those men and women died for you and your freedom.

When I first read through your comment, I thought I read "Nazi Pelosi." Maybe there's something to that.

This disgusts me.....we as a country need to have the MANDATORY military service for at least 1 year,(similar to many other countries) that may instill some respect back into these idiotic kids that played dungeons and dragons along with video games way to much and actually try to talk back to their parents or their elders...no respect for a darn thing!!

I think maybe you should follow his suggestions and be quiet. It is not a hate crime, it's vandalism, period. By the way are you still using picture books and that's why you don't want none of them there reading books thrown at you... did you at least have your fake teeth in when you wrote this?
