Judicial Watch is defending a 74-year old veteran for posting two “four by six inch American flags” on a VA fence and for taking a photo of someone in the area. The people who should be arrested are the people who brought the charges.
Fascism is not allowed in America or at least it wasn’t.
The veteran, Mr. Rosebrock, faces time in a federal prison.
No, this is not satire.
The flags were placed on a fence that is part of the “Great Lawn Gate” marking the entrance to the Los Angeles National Veterans Park on Memorial Day in 2016.
“The absurd case was initiated under President Obama, but is set to go to trial in federal court next month under new DOJ leadership. The military veteran faces up to six months in jail for the ghastly offense of affixing Old Glory at a site honoring those who served their country.”
The VA is not making full use of the facility for veterans especially the homeless. Mr. Robert Rosebock, who placed the flags, protests at the gate every weekend on Memorial Day.
The property was given to the government in the 1880s to care for disabled veterans. It now holds a veterans’ home, but it also is the site of the stadium for UCLA’s baseball team, laundry facilities, 20th Century Fox Television storage warehouses and soccer fields while veterans live and sleep on the streets.
Rosebrock served in the U.S. Army in the 1960s at the Schofield Barracks in Hawaii.
Rosebrock had been told that federal rules allowed the American flag to be posted on the fence, but the VA “later claimed that it erred in allowing the flags because it incorrectly interpreted the applicable regulation.”
The defendant was cited more than a dozen times, but the charges were dropped until now.
Mr. Fitton has tried to get a response from Jeff Sessions but has not heard back.
