I will get so much s*** for this, but this is my opinion
I'm going anon, due to the controversial stance I have on this. Yesterday, the shutdown started, and with that, all national sites closed; The White House, National Parks, etc.. Well anyway, a group of WW2 vets had scheduled to meet at the WW2 Memorial in Washington DC. Even though it was closed, they chose to visit it anyway, breaking through the barriers and going in. Today, I've learned that they could be facing arrest for breaking and entering a closed facility. I agree with this. Yes, they are our veterans from our nations' Great Generation, yes, they usually are allowed to get into these places for free. But they DID break the law. What are the police supposed to do, look the other way? If it had been ANY other goup of people, they would have been arrested immediately and the book thrown at them. Thoughts?
