Vultures Row: Criminal Mischief is too Small a Charge

Criminal Mischief is too Small a Charge


We do not know this man’s politics, but we feel that we can safely say he is an asshole.

Complaint Filed After Driver Crushes Crosses At Anti-War Protest Site

Larry Northern, 59, of McLennan County, was charged Tuesday with Criminal Mischief Over $1,500 and under $20,000 after a pickup truck tore through a row of white crosses erected by anti-war protesters gathered near the President’s ranch in Crawford.

Bail was set at $3,000.

The crosses bear the names of U.S. military personnel who have died in the war in Iraq.

Witnesses said the driver swerved the truck in and out of the makeshift memorial Monday night.

The protesters who are camped out in Crawford expressed outrage at the vandalism.

We do not care who put those crosses up, we don’t care they are crosses; they are memorials to brave men and women that have given their lives for this nation. No matter the politics that put the markers there, they should be respected. We hope the local district attorney prosecute this cretin to the fullest extent of the law. What this “man” did is reprehensible and shows that he has not an ounce of honor.
