FFRF Banner Vandalizer Being Charged
« on: January 24, 2013, 03:46:47 PM »
The guy didn't just vandalize the FFRF's holiday banner, he did it on camera in front of a news crew, who interviewed him about it on camera afterward.  It looked like he was going to just walk away from it, but it turns out that he is being charged.

Good news for a number of reasons.

He will probably get sentenced to go to church for 6 months like that one judge did to some Juvenal kid.

That's rough man, wasn't he allowed to opt out for prison instead?

No. God is going to punish him for being un-neighbourly. Anyone who interferes is hereby sent to hell for all eternity (including the Atheists)...

Not a very good article. Doesn't really say much, like the OP :P. I have read worse. Was the people who videotaped it complicit? I mean, did they know he was going to do that? And if so: shouldn't they be charged, too?
