Oh for the love a... 

You HAVE GOT to be $h!##ing me.
MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) - A U.S. Marine Corps reservist in Oklahoma won't be charged for ignoring police requests and wading into a protest to rescue an American Flag.

Twenty-year-old Ray Adam Modisette says he was driving out of Tinker Air Force Base in Midwest City Friday when he saw a protester from the Topeka-based Westboro Baptist Church stuff the flag down her pants.

Police told him to stay away from the crowd but he ignored their requests and was arrested for interfering with official police process.

Midwest City Assistant City Attorney Randal Homburg says he thinks there are ground to prosecute Modisette for an act of civil disobedience. But he says police have asked him not to file charges.

Police Chief Brandon Clabes says he believes Modisette was acting emotionally.
You're damn right he was! So now a Marine attempting to defend the flag of his country (and all that it stands for) has to worry that some assclown lawyer will file charges against him at some point in the future? Look, I'm all for free speech, and so is Modisette, I'm sure. Even for hate-spewing, inbreeding, creepy Skeletor-looking slime like Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptists. But this is pure lunacy.

Where the hell is this country headed? Doesn't anybody remember Rick Monday?
