The above images were collected from a variety of tweets. While some images we took ourselves, WoC does not claim any credit for the vast majority. We felt having evidence in one location would be of a bigger benefit for all.
Previously, we had covered a few aspects of the department of Corrections and their operations. You may read that article here. Today, we are going to be expanding on this. Furthermore, as our insider has been discovered by their former department, giving an update to that situation. The intention of this article is to provide more inside information provided by an individual who would know best-a former officer. As before, their identity is being withheld to, at bear minimum, protect them from those who may wish to target them online.
We see it often in videos, the police brutally assaulting a person when it isn’t needed. However, we don’t see how officers often get away with this. According to our insider, a lot of it boils down to the wording on their reports. One example we were given is as follows: “when an officer utilizes use-of-force, rather justified or not, they are usually coursed on how the report should reflect that. For instance, if an officer body slams an inmate to the floor, a common occurance, their report will state that they ‘assisted’ the inmate to the floor. They do this because any report written maybe subject for court use; the officer can get into legal trouble if they state they body slammed the offender.” According to our insider, this is the big part of the foundation to getting out of legal responsibility for any injuries.
In cases where the force wasn’t warranted, the department has a tendancy to “doctor” reports, the classic cover-up. While this is publically denounced by D.O.C. it is a normal occurance. Furthermore, if an offender attempts to defend themselves from this, they are slapped with additional charges. These charges may include assaulting an officer, which leads to a longer prison sentence.
When the officer uses force, it is very common for jokes to be made, at the offender’s expense. These people take great pride, from what our insider saw, in laying the “smackdown” on those who may not be able to fight back. “Officers will generally make jokes such as ‘damn, talk about a rag doll effect, sucks to be them, and so on,” according to the insider. Officers, in many ways, are expected to have this mentality. Failing to do so usually results in being made a target by those who outrank you.
The “blue” brotherhood
“During my stint in working for D.O.C., I met a captain who was hardcore about the brotherhood. In the end, because I refused to act like the rest, I questioned him, I was made a target,” according to the source. Cadets who enter the department, with the “brotherhood” mentality, often find a high paying career. According to our source, if you aren’t one of these new officers, you are harassed and bullied into resignation, this also applies to seasoned officers.
While working there, our insider informed us of some of the harassment endured because of their former captain. Pay check being withheld for a month, constantly being in his office for various, and even petty reasons, and at the time they resigned, for violating a policy that did not exist within the department. As we are told, the above mentioned are only a few examples.
We asked the officer, aside the harassment, what was the final straw? What lead you to resign? Their answer is as follows: “the final straw, for me, was the captain getting the warden involved. I was supposed to go to a meeting, regarding violating a non-existant policy, a meeting that I knew meant my termination. The captain had already fucked me out of my pay, which meant, since we were paid monthly, I would go two months without a check. I simply had enough of their bullshit games, the amount of control over my life, and how they used threats to make us do what they wanted, even if we felt it unethical.”
We went on to inquire about the policy, we asked what policy did they violate, exactly? “Honestly, as stupid as this sounds, I drove myself to another facility, to which I was required to be at. I didn’t have the money to get to my home facility so taking a state car wasn’t an option,” was the very quick response given. As we could tell, it appeared that our insider actually violated the “blue brotherhood” code in several ways.
As we can tell, and as generalized law enforcement has revealed, this is a career of being a thug. Those who are thugs last. On the other hand, if you opt out of this mentality, you are bullied into resignation or even terminated. If there is no “justified” means, they fabricate one. Their job, according to the insider, is to ensure inmates don’t break out of the prison, do what they are told when they are told, and to ensure the institution operates smoothly.
A disturbing concept of prison comes in the form of the “segregated housing unit” (S.H.U.) the unit is essentially a jail within a prison. This unit is classified as a “maximum” security unit. What this means for inmates is: they are locked down 23hrs a day, aside from weekends. They get one hour on a secured yard, Monday-Friday only. If an inmate gets in trouble, they maybe sent to this unit pending investigation. The investigation can take upwards of 30 days to complete. However, this month is actually extended as weekends aren’t counted. This means that if an investigation takes the full thirty days, the inmate will actually be in this unit for approx. 45 days. It was further noted that our insider has, by first hand account, seen the mental deteriation of those locked down.
Synopsis of the information
From this, and our previous article, it is clear to see how this system is in shambles. A system that treats human beings worst than animals needs a complete overhaul. Worst yet, we are only about halfway through our notes. Should there be enough interest, we will happily do article III on this.
Officers laughing and joking about injuring people is appauling. Officers targeting their own, simply for wanting to do their jobs, is just as bad. We often ask ourselves, “why aren’t there any good officers?” These articles are demonstrating the answer, as provided by, first hand experience.
Our insider has informed us that after releasing our previous article, there has been some rather suspicious activity around their house. Daily, in some cases several times a day, police cars have been witnessed slowing down in front of their home. In several instances, the cars have been observed coming to a complete stop, the officer watches the home for a few minutes, and proceeds to drive away. Furthermore, they have informed us that several “unmarked” cars have been seen doing this. We are told this is a common practice when officers, or former officers, begin whistle-blowing their department. This seems, if it is a common occurance, to be a form of fear tactic, in our opinion.
This article was composed based on information provided to us. We will not reveal the source nor will we reveal the State to which the source worked. We are doing this for the protection of the individual legally as well as from those within the department who may not agree with this article. War on Corruption takes no responsibility for the information provided, we are merely sharing what was provided to us.
In many ways correctional institutions are contraversial. Rather it be in how offenders are treated, the quality of life, or the occasional violence, these locations have, upon many occasions, sparked outrage. We often hear about how life is for those imprisoned within these institutions, but we rarely hear about those who are (or were) employed. We recently got a bit of insight into how this agency works, the behind the scenes if you will, into the life of the employees. For protective reasons, we have omitted the specific agency’s location as well as the former employee, the reasons will become abundantly clear throughout the article.
Life away from work
When working, it is expected to uphold the policies and guidelines of your employer. Failing to do so is usually met with some form of consequence, even termination of employment. However, this field is slightly different. For those who are employed, the policies appear to apply 24/7. Rather you are at home, at work, even on vacation you find yourself constantly having to “look over your shoulder.” One example that we were given, in regards to this, is Facebook. While it isn’t new for companies to speak to employees regarding posts, for this agency, your posts could be met with harsh consequences including termination.
Speaking ill of the agency is also forbidden. For example, if our contact were actively working for the “Department of Corrections,” they could be met with termination simply for speaking to us, it is to our best guest that whistleblower laws are completely obsolete for these employees. The agency is very “image” focused. Every expectation, on or off duty, that is held toward their employees, is primarily to ensure that this agency maintains a good public image.
Admittedly, from what we have seen, the average correctional officer does make good pay. So why mention this? Well, this is also a punishment that can be utilized against them. As it was explained to us, it is not unheard of for the Department to withold paychecks, forcing employees to go without for “X” amount of time, or until the next pay period. The typical solution for the employees, to which suffer this virtually inhumane form of control, is to go into debt with loans. Because the department can opt out of paying their employees at any given cycle, this means that they are forced to find alternative ways to make ends meet; for some, this means sneaking contraband into the facility for the offenders. Common reasons for this is even more bothersome: you get sick and your supervisor doesn’t approve the time off, you simply miss to many days, and so fourth. Regardless of the reasons why, it does leave questions into the legality of this consequence.
Keeping with the trend of loss pay, we go into another questionable act: Removing your pay. According to our insider, another “dirty” move that is often enacted is the deduction of your payroll from your bank account. According to the individual, this comes in a bit of a process, we will simplify it:
- Payroll is issued and deposited into your checking account.
- Employee uses money to pay bills, etc.
- Up to a week later, the account can suddenly go into a negative standing with the bank due to your check being withdrawn by the department.
Upon asking for the reasons why, we were informed that it is usually classified as an “overpayment.” With this, the insider informed us that they are actually salary based with the addition to getting overtime. This has left many questions regarding this action.
Staffing and Retaliation
The agency is always in a status of “hiring.” Given what we have composed thus far, I can’t fathom why. Nationally, the Department is critically understaffed, often only having one officer for each unit. Each unit could have 300+ offenders versing this one officer. “So why are they always hiring,” a question we had to ask.
“There are many reasons as to why the department is constantly hiring. If an officer angers the wrong person, usually a higher ranking individual, retaliation for this is not uncommon practice. But, aside from that, the field really isn’t for everybody, it really does require a specific personality type in order to truly thrive in such a negative environment,” was the response we got.
We inquired into the retaliation claim. The response, in essence, spoke of payroll (covered above,) frivilous write-ups, being treated in such a way that one is forced to resign, and so fourth. We inquired as to how common this occurs. According to our insider, this was very common practice. The department had a sort of shield in that the policies practically forbade employees from being able to publically speak out against the department, thus leaving them at their mercy.
Another concern that was brought up was regarding how “inmates” are treated. While some officers make a valiant effort, most treat them as though they were the “scum of the earth.” It was upon this note that the insider stated, “we have all made mistakes, we have all done s**t that wasn’t exactly legal. These people simply got caught. It is, to my core belief, that I treated all of them with respect so long as they returned that respect. When they failed to do so, I would attempt to calm the situation which usually meant actually speaking to the offender.”
There is much more we could go into. To do that, however, would require a novelette. While we have much more information, we will leave it to this for this article. For now, we can make a rather damning conclusion as to how these individuals are treated. Furthermore, we can even conclude that the State demands control of the personal lives of its employees, a disturbing concept at best. If requested, we may compose a secondary article into this subject. For now, we will simply leave it with this.
We are making this disclaimer for legal purposes due to the content: This article is not intended to defame, slander, attack, or harm any individuals or their organizations. This is an opinionated article, written to express an opinion regarding the “family rights movement” as a whole.
By now, most people are very much familiar with the “Family Rights Movement.” While, on the surface, we know it as the movement dedicated to the ratification, or expulsion, of CPS/DFS, there is a much deeper element that lurks within. This article is going to discuss why the movement, to many of us, is viewed as being a complete failure. However, we are going to at least play fair, we will highlight some of the good that has arisen from it over the years. Within this article, we are going to be covering a few core issues:
- Artificial advocates
- Fabrication of information
The three categories are among the most serious issues I have witnessed within this movement. In fact, these issues are a big contributor as to why our platform completely removed itself from this arena, only touching on it if certain criterias were met. For instance, if an individual was causing people financial, emotional, or even harm to their case, we covered it. Sadly, that in itself has changed upon completion of this article.
Within the movement, emotions are one of the biggest contributors to this segment of the article. The thing to understand, in defense of the movement, is most of these people are hurting in a very deep way. However, that isn’t always the case. Spending just a few moments looking into the various groups, pages, and even personal pages, the disfunction becomes quickly apparant.
For the sake of simplicity, we are going to divide the movement into three categories: victims, advocates, and advcoate victims. While this may appear insignificant, it is, in fact, critical. The victims within the movement are families who have lost their child(ren.) Rather their case is currently opened, or was previously so, they are the ones seeking a variety of support. Many of these people allegedly have PTSD. For an advocate, it’s reccomended that they have training in this area. However, most don’t. To handle somebody who has been through such a traumatic event, with no training, is nothing short of a reciepe for disaster.
Among some of the other issues, is the constant bickering. Within the movement there is a lot of “he said/she said.” Where most other movements try to vet this sort of thing out, the Family rights movement has failed in an epic way. On nearly every group, page, etc. that relates to this movement, it is almost assured that there will be some form of drama. The drama varies from “exposures,” which are highly debatable for a variety reasons, isolation of “undesired” individuals, and the list goes on. While there are close groups within the movement, if you’re not one of those individuals, it is best to simply keep the list of people you trust to a bear minimum.
Within the movement there is a radical mentality of “perfection.” What this means is that certain individuals, or groups, are harshly targeted for minor mistakes, where others are simply forgiven. For some people, this means that no matter what, at some point they are going to get the short end of the stick. The short end of this stick comes in a variety of forms. A person could be isolated with the loss of those they considered friends. Furthermore, they could be berated in public, in the form of videos. And, to add onto this, they may get a combination of videos while their names are being dragged through the dirt on a variety of pages, though we have not seen this done to an innocent person in sometime.
Now, if the above section isn’t “ramming a harpoon into the bear,” this segment just may do that. An artifical advocate is a person who, online, proclaims to be an advocate. However, if a person claims to be the Pope, does that make them such? To be considered an advocate, one must have training, or at least a great deal of knowledge of family law. Within the movement, there are a lot of people who make claims of knowing this, and thus making them an advocate. However, very few of them are being honest. For many families, this becomes a game of “Russian Roulette.” If you are seeking an advocate, we always suggest conducting research into the individual first. If you fail to do that, get the wrong “advocate,” your case may have a closing that is not what you expected.
Now, we are going to tie the “advocate victim” into this section. An advocate victim is a person who has been through the system. In many cases, they use this background to suggest that they know about the system; that is not true. While there are some good people out there, who have conducted research, you want to ensure that you find the right person for you. This type of “advocate,” however, does have one advantage: They know what moves CPS/DFS may make. For this reason, it isn’t always a bad idea to casually speak to a willing participate about this subject.
Fabrication of information
One of the worst things I have seen personally, over the years, is outright fabrication of information. Generally, this coinsides with a “smear campaign.” A smear campaign is the malicious, and willful, bullying to ruin a person’s reputation. This is a vicious but very rampant issue within the movement. The source of this usually derives from speculation. For instance: Person A sees you speaking to Person B. Person A doesn’t like person B. Regardless of your personal opinion of person B, person A begins to make accusations that you somehow “work” for person B. Generally, these campaigns are conducted with malice intent, lack of knowledge, or a simple lack of communication. Regardless, they cause the targeted individual emotional distress.
In other instances, partial truths are given out. Within the movement, over the years, this has been seen more than once. In fact, at one time, this was almost an epedemic. A partial truth is when an individual knows the entire story, but chooses to use words that are intended to make the target look bad. Regardless of the reasons why, the target is the one who suffers from this ignorant. In nearly every one of these issues, rarely is the intended target allowed to speak in their defense. Generally, they are forced to watch their names, pages, or groups get strung out on a rope. Occassionally, however, they are able to speak. This usually happens when the situation is being done via postings. However, more times than not, friends are lost and nobody listens.
There are people out there who will scam you for money, ruin your case, and think nothing of it. There are people who don’t know what they are doing, who intend to help. However, there are people who do truly mean well, will have your back regardless of the cost. On my personal Facebook, for instance, I have surrounded myself with these people. Some I have known for awhile now, some I am still getting to know. For all of them, however, their actions speak. Over the years I have lost many friends, while that is never easy, I don’t fret it for to long. These are the people who, ultimately, had proven themselves to be “flaky,” “toxic,” or simply those with ill intent.
If you are lucky, you will find those who will have your back.; this is one of the biggest highlights to the movement. You may find the advocate who helps you get your child(ren) home, I personally know of some who can-and will. The Family rights movement has dozens of severe issues. However, within the mix of those issues, there are a few good people; those people are the ones worth keeping.
For our platform, this is most likely the last time we will ever write about this movement. While there are a few things good, it is often very difficult to write articles such as this; this is especially true when you know there are good people within the movement. Furthermore, we don’t feel there is anymore benefit to touching on this subject any further as it has, over the years, spoken for itself. Rather that be good or bad, that is truly up to individual perception. With all of this being said, we are closing this chapter.
Donald Branham is your typical father; a man who would sacrifice anything for his children. The concept of losing a child is one that could only exist within nightmares. Unfortunantly for Donald, this nightmare has now become a cold harsh reality.
In 2006 Mackenzie was an articulated little girl. 8 years of age, parents divorced, she would often split her time between mother and father. On April 27th, 2006 Mackenzie had been staying with her mother. It would later be discovered, during post-mortem testing, that she had been previously raped, more on that later.
In the early morning hours, a sudden, amd mysterious fire, took place. Mackenzie’s mother Maryanne, her boyfriend Kenny, and suspiciously enough the dog, managed to escape unharmed. While they stood outside the blazing inferno, in the second floor bedroom a little girl would perish.
Protocol, under normal circumstances, state that a fire containing a death are to be treated as a homicide until otherwise proven. However, the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department failed to uphold this. In fact, it appears that they have willfully sabotaged the entire case. It makes a person wonder why. We began asking questions about the boyfriend, keeping in mind the claim of rape.
As it turns out, Kenny had family within the department, one being a sargeant. Initially, Mackenzie’s death was ruled “accidental.” It was then upgraded to “suspicious,” and finally “homocide.” We know, from our investigation, the police destroyed the investigation. Early on, Mackenzie tested positive for semen, this is conclusive of rape. Being that she was in the home with her mother, and her boyfriend, that narrows the list of suspects, though this remains inconclusive.
Within the first month of Mackenzie’s death, the Fayatte county sheriff’s department had already began destroying the evidence. The destroyed evidence wasn’t minor things, either. Clothing, 9-1-1 calls, etc. seemingly began to vanish. All evidence that could identify the rapist, and potential murderer, destroyed. While we aren’t big into conspiracy theories, this is extremely suspicious for a department to do…especially so early into an open investigation.
What we are providing, within this article, is just a brief description into this case; we haven’t even discussed the deeper aspects of what has happened, this will have to be done in a future article. Mackenzie was a young lady who did not deserve the cruel fate that was bestowed upon her. She did not deserve the confirmed rape nor being burned alive. For her father, Donald, his love for his kids, as well as Mackenzie’s memory, drive him toward seeking the truth: why was she killed?
You can look at the evidence for yourself, there is simply to much for us to share here. To do that, you can join his Facebook group here.
Remember this man? If not, let me explain who he is and why he is so important. First, recall the various articles that have been written about the Dalton case. 20yo El Hadji Mohammad Cisse (El Mo Ci,) was stalking a young 16yo girl. When she denied his advances, he went to the extreme. Thus far, his victim, and her family’s lives are in shambles. Why? Mohammad attempted to abduct his young victim, after nearly eight hours, the family had located her. I won’t go into to many details as they are already floaring about.
Above, are pictures of the school’s sides. We know, Mohammad tried to abduct her from the side of the building. What is unknown, is which side. Above, are the two possible locations for the abduction. As a result of this abduction, a restraining order, which Missouri threw out, was filed. Upon learning of this filing, Mohammad did what any insane stalker would do; he got a job right across the street from the school.
Now, I have marked two locations on this image. The first, is a grocery store where the stalker works. The second, the victim’s school. Students often go to this store, where Mohammad currently works, to get food. Now, he is stalking a minor student of this school. With that in mind, one must ask, “are these children really safe shopping there?” My vote is no.
As you can tell, this store is very close to the school. For a psychopath, it is easy to keep watch on his prey, his victim; and yet Missouri, who currently should be protecting this child, has willfully refused to do so. Why? My theory is they are protecting their CPS case, and thus protect their financial gain. To protect the case, they must protect their witness. The worst part is what this statement says. It says that non citizens, who are in our country, have more rights than native born citizens. With this, I question the state, it’s officials, and it’s compentency to protect any child.
The harassment toward his victim has not stopped. Daily, when the victim awaits for her cab, Mohammad pulls up, and harasses her. Below, is a picture of the harassment site.
It appears, the girl is not safe anywhere. In fact, it is very likely that her life is in danger; and yet Missouri does nothing aside fabricate stories on the victim. These images bring fourth a lot of questions and concerns. At this point, I do not believe it is if Mohammad will do something, but when. Somehow, somebody has to protect this child. If the state won’t, the family, at the moment can’t, than who? Us. The media, the people, we must protect this child and her family. Not only because of the corruption, but because this could be your child, your family.
UPDATE: We have confirmed that point A, shown above, is the actual abduction point.
NOTE: victim’s name is not mentioned due to current legal circumstances.
As of the time of this article, not much is known regarding this case. What little information I currently have is tragic. A mother, whose boyfriend had injured her child, played the CPS game and lost. In some aspect, I can already hear people sayimg, “she pulled her trigger.” I disagree.
Losing a child is tough on families; losing four, even more so. A woman, who took the appropriate action, ended up getting shafted. The issue I have in this regard is merely the fact she had reached out to the system for assistance. Rather than helping, as it should have done, the system further victimized this young woman. What could she had done at this point?
She played into their blackmail, extortion, propaganda; she played their twisted idea of a game. Anybody who has dealt with CPS, DFS, etc., already knows that they push parents to their limit. For some parents, as in this case, CPS pushes them beyond their mental capacity. It is, with this in mind, a lot of parents snap.
Though, at this time, the young woman’s name is unknown to me, her loss was simply to much to bear. These stories of parents who commit suicide are always hard for me to ignore. I do not see suicide here. What I see is a Gestapo styled agency, destroying families, and pulling triggers on these parents. That’s right, I am boldy claiming them to be murderers!
You can only push a person for so long before they snap. What CPS does, based on evidence, is push families until they do snap. At that point, thwy claim the parents to be unfit, order them to get mental assessments, and begin repairing what they initially broke. While doing this, they extort and blackmail the families for hundreds, thousands, it does not matter to them. They use the love of the parents as a tool-a weapon against them. Want to know teue evil? CPS has shown it through this and many cases like this.
As you know, Ferguson was recently in the media due to issues with racism. Have they reformed? No. This story is one of utter horror. It involves a family, who are on the tribal roll, CPS, and the corruption of law enforcement. This story is one that defies all logic, rationality, and law.
It started when Rosemary, mother of a 16 year old located innapropriate photos on a cell phone. A 20 year old Muhammad Cisse of St. Ann, Mo. picked the girl up to take her to a friends house. However, that is not where she ended up. Instead, he drove her to a fitness center across county lines, and then to his home. Once there, he held the young girl against her will, even upon being asked to go home. While imprisoned, her family drastically searched and eventually found her. Muhammad, the abducter, called the police for a “welfare” check. Keep in mind, this man, as shown below, clearly had sexual relations with this minor.
Perhaps she needed a welfare check against him.
As if things could not get any worst, an official report, above, clearly confirms the abuse from Muhammad occured. To this day, against the familys’ wishes, the state has done nothing against these accusations. Instead, they removed the victim from her family, forcing her into isolation. Now, here is where more laws get disregarded.
The girl and her family are enrolled with an Indian tribe. What this means is, legally the state must turn the child over to the tribe. However, the state has willfully violated these laws.
Above, is a legal notice from the tribe to the state. Within this letter, they confirm that not only is the family tribal, they notify the state of the various laws being broken; Senators are currently being involved by the tribe. Beyond this, the state has refused to release the child.
This is a case of complexity and corruption in its purest form. This shows just how far the CPS/ DFS is willing to go for a quick buck. There is much more I can comment regarding this, with photographic evidence. However, for now, I hope this basic analysis works.
It amazes me as to how this nation has fallen from its origional glory. When I was a child, as with most of you, I read the story about Paul Revere, the American Revolution, and the Civil War and was amazed as to what I had learned. You see, the thing that these have in common is they were all about the American people fighting for what they believed to be the right thing to do. Now, when I look at America through the eyes of various articles I read, I am reminded as to how complacent we have become. We went from being a nation ran by the people to a being one ran by major corporations who have deep pockets. The worst part of this is the fact our Government has become nothing more than minions for them; it is something that makes me sick to the stomach.
War on Corruption (my Facebook page) has seen a lot of horrible things since it was first founded. Evidence supporting the stance that we are now living in a police state being among them. One of the goals I had set for myself is awareness. For to long, we the people, have been ignorant of the crimes being commited by our own Government. We ignore them saying, “
Well, it’s not like I can do anything about it.” I say you’re full of it (hence why I marked it out.) The problem isn’t that we CAN’T do anything about it, the problem is we WON’T! I have advocated for years this one concept of awareness because I believe that if we are aware of what is going on in D.C. than we can rise against it.
But where do we start? Well, to that question there is no basic answer. You have groups like Anonymous who are a great resource for activist. Me? I started War on Corruption in which I display corrupted Police officers and other Government officials; Hell, you can say I highlight them. You see, the place we start or how we start isn’t what’s important. The thing that matters is where we take it once we start.
I call this post “Single Nation War” because I see a country that is literally in war with itself. The activists are rising against Obama and his corrupted laws and they are rising up against us by spreading fear. For example, it was brought to my attention just yesterday that the Government is now stating that if your child is showing signs of aggression they might be gearing up to be a terrorist. It’s this type of bullshit that I want to stop! If you’re child beats the hell out of another kid, that doesn’t make them a terrorist… In reality, the Government calls everybody “terrorists” because they, in fact, are the terrrorists. As the old saying goes, “the Government hates competition.” Perhaps this is real motivation behind the fear?
You hear it in propaganda almost on a daily basis. “Defend freedom, be a soldier.” I heard this phrase recently on the television and it got me thinking, “If they care so much about our troops, why are they always being shafted?” The double standard that I have noticed within our country, especially when it comes to our troops, is they glorify soldiers while cutting their benefits, sending them to wars that they should not be in, and then burning the families of the fallen. I don’t know about you, but I see this as something that is of great concern.
I remember growing up and hanging out with the old school vets. You know the ones in which I’m speaking of. They had this mentality of “you mess with me and I’ll rip every limb from their sockets.” Yeah, they were awesome. But I also recall them talking about how their benefits were being cut and how they couldn’t afford their medications, doctor bills, etc. At the time I didn’t understand what this meant. As I grew up, most of these men grew older and died. The thing that really pissed me off about this was how little the Government helped the families who couldn’t afford the burials; in my eyes, something was seriously fucked up with this.
I have wished for years the Government would make an advertisement that was a bit more accurate. In fact, I have the perfect script: “Become a soldier, fight for yours, and everybody else’s, country. die and be a hero but don’t expect us to help ya’ll out. Expect pay cuts as well as benefits cuts as we cannot manage money.” I dunno, think it’s a bit more accurate? I do.
The other thing that bothers me is the sight of a homeless vet. I recently went to Nebraska and had this honor of meeting some of these great men. One in specific has been fighting for his benefits for years; so far, the Government is giving him hell. I threw him what money I could, thanked him for his service, and continued with my business. However, this man never left my mind. He looked like something from Duck Dynasty with a long ragged beard and firm to heart religion, but it didn’t change the fact he had been shafted by the very nation he swore to serve. it’s as I said, ” something is seriously fucked up here.”
War on Corruption.
