[PHOTO] Gay Marine Homecoming!

 

This is a lovely photo of uniformed Marine, Brandon Morgan, being welcomed home by his partner! Although nearly 14,000 people are sharing their support of this photo and what it stands for, it is also igniting criticism.

According to his Facebook profile, Morgan is a member of Helicopter Squadron 363, based in Hawaii.

Overwhelmed by the photo’s widespread attention, Morgan recently issued a response:

“To everyone who has responded in a positive way. My partner and I want to say thank you. Dalan, the giant in the photo, can’t believe how many shares and likes we have gotten on this. We didn’t do this to get famous,or something like that we did this cause after 3 deployments and four years knowing each other, we finally told each other how we felt. …

We are the happiest we have ever been and as for the whole PDA and kissing slash hugging in uniform…it was a homecoming, if the Sergeants Major, Captains, Majors, and Colonels around us didn’t care…then why do you care what these random people have to say? In summation thank you for your love and support. …

Goodnight all, and Semper Fi.”

[VIDEO] Marine Veteran Wounded With Rubber Bullet During The Raid On Occupy Oakland

The police decided (were told they had to remove the protesters) to go up against the brave men and women who were Occupying Oakland last night October 25th, 2011. They used tear gas and rubber bullets to clear the tent city that was full of Americans protesting Capitalism and the control that corporations have on all of us.

Officers had cleared the site of Occupy Wall Street demonstrators around 12 hours earlier in a dawn raid where at least 85 people were arrested.

Police gave repeated warnings to demonstrators to disperse from the entrance to Frank Ogawa Plaza in the Californian city before firing tear gas canisters into the crowd at 7:45pm on Tuesday evening.

While they were doing their job, their job is being controlled by the people these very citizens are protesting. The more you remove them and fight their peaceful protest, the more you are implying that what these people are doing is right. Hundreds, thousands, hell, millions, have come together to make a change to our government because the current system in place is not working. Many of us are suffering, unemployed, in debt, and unable to fix our problems while the 1% gains currency that is unimaginable to most American citizens.

Marine Veteran Scott Olsen, a Veterans for Peace member is the gentleman who is seen in the video bleeding from the head after being hit with a non-lethal bullet. This man was employed by and fought for this country, but is now being attacked by the men and women who he devoted his life for. He is dealing with a war in his own country and HE is seen as the enemy.

Instead of throwing tear gas or rubber bullets at the police dressed head to toe in riot gear, the protesters were armed with paint. The paint was thrown on officers to show their resistance to leaving the are that they had occupied in the hopes of protesting peacefully.

The number of protesters diminished with each round of tear gas. Police estimated that there were roughly 1,000 demonstrators at the first clash following the march. 

About 200 remained after the final conflict around 11:15pm on Tuesday night – mostly young adults, some riding bicycles, protecting themselves from the noxious fumes with bandanas and scarves wrapped around their faces.

‘This movement is more than just the people versus the police,’ Mario Fernandez said on Tuesday night. ‘It’s about the people trying to have their rights to basic services. This crowd isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.’

City officials said that two officers were injured. At least five protesters were arrested and several others injured in the evening clashes. But city officials said 97 people were arrested in the Tuesday morning raid on the camp.

Ex-Marine Accused Of Raping 7-Year-Old Family Member On The Run

Charles Dyer, ex-marine who previously served time in Iraq, is currently on the run from police after being arrested for the rape of a seven-year-old family member. He was supposed to show up to court in Oklahoma on these charges but never showed up and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

The 40-year-old is a member of the Oathkeeper militia movement which vows to uphold the Constitution of the United States ‘against all enemies, foreign and domestic’.

Police have encouraged everyone to keep their eyes open for the fugitive, but are convinced that he will be heavily armed. Because of this, they have asked that no one approach him or attempt to take him in on their own.
Last April he went to trial for this incident, but the jury was unable to reach a verdict. Knowing this, I became a bit suspicious. Then, the story got a bit more complicated. Not only was he charged with raping a minor, but he was in possession of an unregistered grenade launcher. The launcher had been stolen, and was one of the weapons that was supposed to be on its way to Iraq.

The wanted man has been posting videos on YouTube under the name ‘July 4 Patriot’, which explain that the government is out to get him. He also sent a letter to his lawyer to further explain his suspicions:
He said: ‘I have taken this final opportunity while I am still alive to make a statement to the public.

‘I have been pushed to the limits multiple times by law enforcement and the judicial system in an attempt to cause me to take violent action against them.

‘If I do, I know I will be the monster they depict me as.

‘Our judicial system is nothing more than a system of liars and crooks working under the color of the law, where the rich go free and the poor are made to suffer injustice. Something MUST be done to expose it.’

The last bit of very eerie information is that Dyers’ home has mysteriously burnt down and his girlfriend, Monica Joy Freeman, was arrested on arson charges. Was Dyer behind this? Does she know where he is? Is there really a conspiracy?
