Vandals, Moonbats, And Punks, Oh My!

Michelle Malkin has three separate stories that can all be linked together under that title. Yes, we have some vandals in this nation that just cannot handle their responsibility as citizens to handle certain rights that citizens have, like voting. The Milwaikee DNC workers who slashed tires on Republican vans will be seeing some jail time for their "fun" on Election Day 2004.

A judge admonished a congresswoman's son and three other Democratic campaign workers for interfering with voters' civil rights as he sentenced them to jail Wednesday for puncturing the tires of some Republican vans on Election Day 2004.

Judge Michael B. Brennan exceeded the recommendation of prosecutors in sentencing the four men to jail time ranging from four to six months for misdemeanor property damage.

"Voter suppression has no place in our country," Brennan told the defendants in Milwaukee County Circuit Court. "Your crime took away that right to vote for some citizens."

And it was done by them for exactly that reason. Partisanship is no excuse for a crime. And such a crime as this can't be excused. For all those that were salivating out there, hoping for longer sentences, you should have known that wouldn't be the case. The original charges were dropped in favor of lesser ones, and the prosecutor stated that he had hoped for longer sentences, but in the end this should be enough to deter such actions the next time around.

That I doubt, but at least justice was served on some level. And speaking of justice Sally Jacobsen and her merry band of vandals will be facing the music soon. Ms. Jacobsen and a group of her students destroyed an anti-abortion display on the Northern Kentucky University's campus earlier this month. The moonbats destroyed the placard that had been erected, and the crosses at the site. They have now been criminally charged.

A professor and six students at Northern Kentucky University were charged Wednesday with misdemeanors related to the April 12 destruction of an anti-abortion display on campus.

Sally Jacobsen of the literature and language department, has been charged with criminal mischief, theft by unlawful taking and criminal solicitation. The third charge relates to evidence that she encouraged students to participate in the destruction, County Attorney Justin Verst said.

The six students, who range in age from 21 to 27, were charged with criminal mischief and theft by unlawful taking.

The theft charge is a class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a $500 fine.

The criminal mischief and solicitation charges are class B misdemeanors punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $250 fine.

Verst said additional students might be charged as their identities become known.

Four hundred crosses representing aborted fetuses were pulled from the ground and thrown in trash cans around campus.

A sign explaining the temporary display, which had been approved by university officials as an expression of free speech, was also removed.

Jacobsen told reporters that she had "invited" students in her graduate-level British literature course to exercise free-speech by destroying the display.

She said she was offended by the simulated cemetery, which she considered intimidating and harmful to women who might be considering abortions. NKU's campus newspaper, the Northerner, published photos of Jacobsen dismantling part of the display.

Since the incident became public, NKU's president has received hundreds of e-mails from throughout the country condemning the professor's actions. She was placed on leave last week, and substitutes were assigned to her classes for the rest of the semester.

Jacobsen has received a large amount of hate mail, her lawyer, Margo Grubbs of Fort Wright, said.

She had no idea there would be so much fallout, and she is sorry for the hurt she caused, Grubbs said.

"She never wanted to harm her university or her students at all," Grubbs said. "Twenty-seven years of her life have been at this university."

Jacobsen will plead not guilty, Grubbs said. Grubbs said the dismantling of the display doesn't amount to a criminal act.

WHOA! Time out. Where did this monkey get his law degree? Since when is destruction of private property not a crime? This display didn't belong to Ms. Jacobsen or any of her students. They were offended by it, and rather than take it to the administration, they did what all moonbats do. They went into super-emotion high-gear, and rode those emotions. They destroyed a display on campus--a college campus where thought is to be encouraged, even if it is contrary to the majority of the school--all because they didn't like it. And I'm guessing they knew the administrators would have told them to get stuffed if they whined that they wanted the display pulled down.

This is the hypocrisy of the Left on college campuses. They demanded tolerance for their wacky ideas, like the upcoming Day of Silence for gays, lesbians, and "transgenders" (whatever the Hell that means). They demanded tolerance when Hispanic and Black student unions held protests. They have even screamed that their antiwar protests should be allowed on campus as a means to exercise their "freedom of speech." Yet, when something contrary comes along, like this anti-abortion display, they detest it. They demand it be removed, and should it not be, they destroy it. Yes, hypocrisy runs deep within the Left, and Ms. Jaconbsen did an excellent job showing it to the country.

And in conclusion today, Michelle brings us a story from Chapel Hill where an attack on the ROTC has taken place. (She has the pictures of what the vandals did to the ROTC armory there on campus.) And the Raleigh News and Observer has the story.

Vandals staged attacks early Wednesday on the buildings used by the Reserve Officers' Training Corps at N.C. State University and UNC-Chapel Hill, echoing similar assaults on three Triangle recruiting stations last month.
As before, vandals sprayed anti-war slogans and profanity, splashed red paint and claimed responsibility with a mass e-mail message to area media outlets.

Lt. Col. Carol Ann Redfield of the Army ROTC program at N.C. State was caught off guard. "This is the first time I know of that anything like this has happened here," she said. "I certainly appreciate that people have different opinions, and they should be able to express them, but I have a problem when they damage property."

The e-mail, from someone calling himself "celest ialbeing" said, "Stop these recruitment centers that target poor people and people of color to fight to maintain the power structure that (literally and figuratively) imprisons us daily."

The vandals sprayed slogans at the base of an entrance to Reynolds Coliseum, which holds the Department of Military Science, and tossed paint onto an ROTC sign above the entrance.

Investigators had good leads, said Sgt. Jon Barnwell of the N.C. State Police Department.

At UNC-Chapel Hill, campus police spokesman Randy Young said investigators were aware of the e-mail and the link with the attack at N.C. State. "We're certainly looking into that," he said. Investigators think the UNC Naval Armory was attacked between 4 and 5:30 a.m.

A student who signs up for ROTC mixes military training with regular classes and can get help with college costs in return for serving as an officer after graduation.

It is not clear whether the attacks were related to incidents in March at recruiting offices in Durham and Raleigh, but the subject line on the e-mail message Wednesday was "more red paint and anti-war."

The attacks Wednesday were coordinated, but that doesn't mean they were well-planned.

At UNC, the vandals used spray paint for slogans but chose a 5-gallon bucket of water-soluble red paint to splash the landing, columns and steps. A cleanup crew blasted it off with a pressure washer.

"Thank goodness they used water-based paint," said Angelo Baldwin, a crew member. The slogans -- including "we won't fight your wars!" -- also were removed quickly, but the doors must be repainted.

At N.C. State, the slogan "Army ROTC trains murderers resist acts of war" was sprayed in a place all but invisible to passers-by. The vandals' arsenal also included another puzzling choice: Christmas tree ornaments, which were apparently tossed at the ROTC sign.

So, not only were the moonbats loose, but they were stupid ones at that. It's bad enough that these people have to turn to vandalism. But these people took it to a whole new level showing how really retarded they are. Water-soluble paint? Christmas decorations? Come on guys, think better than that.

Regardless of how idiotic these people are, that doesn't excuse them of their crime. They vandalized a building on a university campus, and it may be tied to other recent attacks on ROTC buildings on other campuses. This is just sick and wrong. Do these people feel as though their voices aren't being heard? They should know by now that as long as they speak, bloggers will report how utterly looney they really are. They have their voice. We hear them loud and clear, but our response is what may annoy them.

For us, we don't care what these people have to say. They're emotionally-unhinged partisan attack dogs who have little regard for the law, and that includes the precedent recently set by the Supreme Court that colleges can't bar military recruiters or the ROTC. It upholds the Solomon Amendment. The ROTC guys are going to stay on campus whether these freaks like it or not. Personally, when they're caught, if they are students they should be expelled. They should also face jail time for this vandalism, and be liable for any costs to repair the damage they did.

Which just goes to prove, in three distinctly separate incidents that being a moonbat doesn't pay off. When you embrace that the utterly nutter side of partisanship, it's likely to cost you more than what you just cost someone else.
